    Are there any 3rd party apps that let you create a today screen ala Windows Mobile in the 700p? Returning my crappy 700wx b/c of the text messaging issue but would love to figure out a way to have a Today screen.

    2Day by SHSH.com, ZLauncher has a 2Day plugin that works nicely, and so does Datebook 6 and it supports 2Day and 4Cast also.

    I have today screens set for all three and use the 2Day application the most.

    I just downloaded the 2day app last night and I love it. I can't believe I waited this long. Works great with Agendus.

    Ben - How do use actually use 2Day? I have DateBk6, 4Cast, and QuickNews, all which interface with 2Day according to ShSh. I can't figure out what advantage I'd get with 2Day considering it's no big deal for me to switch to the app I need to get full detail rather than the limited information pulled from those apps with 2Day.

    For example, I still find myself going directly to 4Cast for weather even though I use the DateBk6 plugin. Application switching is so fast that it is not a burden for me to go right to the source for what I need. Is there something I'm missing or underestimating?

    The ONLY advantage is that the information is available in one place - you do not need to go roaming about. That is why I have 2Day and use it by itself, use it as a plug in with ZLauncher and use the "today" feature of Datebook 6 and its ability to use the 4Cast plugin. And when the need comes around for more detailed information, reaching Datebook 6 is easily done.

    As for application switching being fast, yes it is; however, there are those few times when few steps are desireable - I use my Treo heavily during the day and rarely do I need to look at the "detailed" information within Datebook 6 - a quick glance from 2Day or pressing the five-way button in ZLauncher gets me the information I generally need.

    What would be a good program is a today program that would replace the phone screen/app with one that has a smaller dialpad (if needed to be shown) and then also shows the other today-like features (via plugins) that we'd all like. That kind of today screen would have much better usability since we are all Treo-ed enough to use the phone on occasion

    Maybe if you bug me after I have matured Universe I'll start a Today screen


    Edit: The thing I don't like about most Today screens is all of the clutter.

    That's another great thing about 2Day....you can keep it as clean and simple as you want or you can tap more of its potential and reveal more info. I started it simple and clean but ended up growing into it a bit (see Avatar). One of my top 5 apps.

    as antoine stayted that one should replace the home screen. I see a lot of people use 2day.. its a godd program but its not sexy at all . I have installed many times to try to like it but I can't. I use the today screen on agenduspre 11 and feel its the best and close to the windows version of the 2day screen. wich is the best.

    Trust me, I'll bug you (ask Azrul from PocketCraft how bad I was to him - I did purchase a few copies of Facer too, for me and others).

    But honestly, its not so much that any of use need a new "program" so to speak. We need for one to cleanly and efficiently bring together the elements that are best used on mobile devices (in our case, Treos). The phone screen starts off there, but it leaves a lot of white space. Heck, the new 680 phone screen is better, does a few things nice and simply it seems too. But there can be more/better done.

    I'd just like to see the software really push the hardware for a change. Garnet is mature enough that we should see apps that do that ya know.
