    I'm a long time WM user. I started off with the old Compaq Aero's, going all the way to a new iPAQ just a few months ago. The one thing I really liked about WM is the fact that it has a welcome / home page, that when you turn the pda on, presenting you with to do's, appointments, weather, and other handy user customizable information. I feel that this is the only feature that my 700p is lacking. I have set it up so it displays the next appointment in the phone screen, but that really isn't nearly enough. I'm looking for a good application (free or rather cheap) to display a rundown of what needs to be done, maybe with support for other things as well. I'm curious as to what people here have found as a solution to this problem. Thanks.

    Welcome to the PalmOS. I personally think it is a much easier platform to use, and once you get used to it, you will find that the tasks you frequently need are much easier to perform.

    That being said, I don't think there is anything exactly as the Today page on the ppc platform. I use initiate and agendus as my laucher/contact manager and agendus to display an agenda view of my upcoming appointments.

    I have used FacerPro in the past which has a today screen like interface with plugins. It's not made specifically for a smartphone however (like alot of other launchers).

    Initiate ties in application lauching, contact dialing or emailing or sms-ing, lauching bookmarked websites into a really intuitive user interface. I use the minimal screen with a list view and it works great. If i need to see my tasks/appointments, i quickly switch over to agendus and it goes to today type screen with upcoming appts, tasks, weather, etc...

    Hope this helps.

    Take a look at the family of ShSh Software including 2Day, 4Cast, 2Dial. Excellent support with a forum here. I use 2Day and 4Cast with DateBk5 from Pimlico Software as my main calendar app. ( 2Day can be set up to run Datebk5 on the second press of the Calendar button.) For other stuff like viewing stocks I use Pocket Express 2.0 from Handmark. All have been rock solid for me on the 650 and now on the 700.

    Speaking of Facer, Pocket Craft seems to have taken over Today , which was a pretty decent free "Home" screen.

    May want to look at that. Less overhead than Facer.

    Hi,

    You can use 4cast as a plugin for the DateBk6 "Today" screen, as well...
