    IMO, HandyShopper (beta version) is one of the best freeware programs.

    It's a "shopping list" program, but you can made databases for just about any kind of list: Christmas cards/shopping, To Do, Travel items, Prescriptions, Bills, etc.

    Excellent program and totally free.

    What does it do?

    May I suggest that as we add to this thread that people point out what some of the more obscure apps do? That'd make it a bit more useful as we go along.

    Virg:

    That 4T Personal, though oddly named, is an impressive little program! Good call.

    PrefEd is like Filez except that it maps the saved and unsaved preferences to the Application that created it. For example I have one named "TOOL" that is for ATool. After deleting quite a few apps there are saved preferences on my visor that don't get deleted. I can hunt them down and delete them manually with PrefEd. If you're familiar with Preference Manager it's the same, but more powerful because PrefEd allows access to "unsaved" preferences as well. The price is right. http://www.bellut.net/pilot.html#ppref

    I recently upgraded from a Visor original model to the Prism. Unfortunately, Diddle Bug won't run correctly. Basically, I get the use of "one" post it page that seems and there is no toggle between them - just have to clear screen basically for a new one and it won't save them, just the current one.

    I really LOVE Diddle Bug; I'm thinking it has to do with the color screen, a friend mentioned the pixels? I've tried beaming the program, deleting and reinstalling, anyway I can -- I've looked around for other similar programs but they are all more complicated than what I really need (ie: Jot, Ink Snap, Quick Notes). Does anyone know of any other similar apps that I could use for the same purpose and function as Diddle Bug? PLEEAAASSSEEE???
