    Anyone know of an app that can provide me with a Today - type view? i'd like it to show appts, icon to phone, email alert, and perhaps customizable shortcuts to my desired apps. plug ins would be nice (eg weather), too

    i tried Facer (no alert, not customizable for shortcuts) and also just looked at zlauncher, but that doesn't seem to do what i'd like.

    any recommendations?

    Here are a couple of options to explore:

    2Day
    http://www.shsh.com/

    TMP
    http://lilredspider.com/TMP/index.html

    I've used both and can recommend them. The 2Day developer is particularly active, and is very responsive to comments and suggestions. Based upon what you're looking for, it sounds like 2Day might be for you.

    I like 2day a lot as well - you can also add a lot of plugins for things like weather.

    downloaded 2day last nite- looks great! thanks so much for the tip. seems to have all i want... spent hours tweaking it-very customizable.

    cigarman... how do you change the fonts-- also i see you can use plugins, but how?

    thanks!

    He's probably using FontSmoother. Here's a pic of my current 2day screen.

    duke duke, that's it.

    eddieras, I am using quicknews rss reader with the beta plugin from shsh. I am also using the plugin for 4cast. Shsh software is great stuff. very customizable and easy to use.

    italiangspot: you nailed it too.

    Is there somewhere anyone can point me to, to find more skins for the 2Day page, other than the few that are on the shsh page?

    Julie K,

    You can use pretty much any picture on the treo. Otherwise you need an image that is 320x320, load it on to the card and set it. That is really it.

    I ditto the above. Both are great. 2day has the plugin feature and TMP is a very clean and functional app. Give them both a try.

    cigar - i downloaded quicknews but i'm not getting all the feeds on the 2day page - only about 4 (i have it set to cycle thru). i've updated all the feeds, but i still only get a few on the page. any ideas?

    when you go into quicknews do all the feeds have info? Are the feeds stored internally or on the card? if the feeds are on the card, the plugin won't work. Also, open the plugin and check to make sure all the feeds are marked to view.

    Just found out about the 2Day app. through this thread - thanks I think it's wonderful. Coming from a WM5 device I find the Palm OS akin to the Mac OS - simple and intuitive. I should give TMP a try sometime. Are both free?

    yes, all have info, all are stored internally. here's what i found. the plugin is cycling thru only the articles for a particular feed. for example- if there are 6 articles under BBC, that's all that cycles thru on 2day.

    is this correct? i'd prefer it cycle thru all the articles of all the feeds.

    just noticed i get a reboot at times when i select the feed from 2day or alos after i have selected the feed from 2day and select GO BACK (to 2day). the treo has rebooted on a couple occasions with both scenarios.
    thanks again!
