    hi fellow freeware seekers,

    i dont buy software over the net so i was wondering if anyone knew of any good freeware applications. especially freeware apps that had a twin app but cost money (e.x. hackmaster and x-master). games would be greatly appreciated as well as infrared apps.what im saying is post all your freeware apps for others to see!

    hope that if this is replied it'll help others too,

    Hmmmmmmm . . . where to start . . .

    HandyShopper 2.0 (grocery & other lists)

    CSpotRun (a handy doc reader)

    Fortune (which is a silly fortune cookie program)

    HappyDays (birthday tracker)

    Invisible ('removes' icons from app launcher)

    Moon Phase (self explanatory)

    ReadThemAll (a doc reader that can read ANY format)

    and of course, X-Master.

    This thread has been done before, but I suppose it's time for an update!

    Here is my list:

    Launcher III (App launcher)
    HandyShopper (Shopping list database)
    Autobase (Vehicle Database)
    Noah (Dictionary)
    Mapopolis (maps)
    Niggle (a great Scrabble clone)
    Cribbage (game)
    X-Master (hack manager)

    and I'm sure there are some more, but those are the ones off the top of my head.

    ReadThemAll (a doc reader that can read ANY format)

    I looked and tried a Google search for ReadThemAll, but came up empty handed. Where can I find Readthemall? On a related matter, do there exist any converters from proprietary doc format (Tombraider,etc) to plain Doc (readable by Cspotrun)?

    PalmGear has ReadThemAll listed.

    This Doc reader has a very innovative 'auto-scrolling' feature. Instead of scrolling the screen, which can be hard for your eyes to follow, it gradually (or quickly, depending on your settings) replaces lines from the previous page with lines from the next page. This makes it more natural to read from the top of the page to the bottom, instead of keeping your eyes at the same position while the text scrolls past. I really like this idea, and hope that WordSmith and PalmReader include something like this in their applications.

    CSpot Run will also replace lines.

    I have a few questions...

    Isn't Hackmaster free? I also thought FireConverter was only free for 30 days. Isn't this supposed to be a freeware thread? If you couldn't tell, I'm a bit confused...

    I don't think it's the same thing. CSpotRun will 'scroll' the screen, either by pixels or by lines. Either way, new lines appear at the bottom, 'pushing' older lines upwards. This means you keep your eyes at the same place, and try to read the lines as they scroll by. With ReadThemAll, the lines are not replaced only at the bottom of the screen, but rather the location of the replaced line moves from the top to the bottom, then back to the top. For example, if you start with the following (assume the screen only holds 4 lines):

    line 1
    line 2
    line 3
    line 4

    then turn on the auto-page-changer, you will get:

    line 5
    line 2
    line 3
    line 4

    then:

    line 5
    line 6
    line 3
    line 4

    The upshoot of all this is that you can read more naturally, going from the top of the screen to the bottom, then back up to the top, but you don't have to manually page down each time. Of course, you still have to choose a comfortable replacement speed, and sometimes you don't always read at the same speed....but it's easy to pause, slow down, and speed up the 'paging'.

    No hackmaster is not free but it is no different if you were to buy it bacause it already lets you use it for an unlimited amount of time. when they say its shareware and you should pay for it i think it is only a way of saying thank you because so many programs use it. personnaly i havent paid for it bacause it hasent been updated for 3 years. i receantly have switched from hackmaster to X-Master because it is safer and gives more options to tinker with, not to mention its FREE which is what this whole thread is about.

    hope this helped,
    Bob

    so once again ill say post your freeware apps if it hasent been posted yet for others to see!

    ATool!: Battery meter, date calculator, etc.
    AvantGo: It's worth the extra mention, IMO
    BackGammon: I finally found a free one, and it's updated frequently.
    Ear Trainer: Plays two pitches and you have to identify the interval.
    Easy Calc: graphing calculator with quite a few features
    Hearts: um...you know, hearts
    McPhling: SwitchHack/PhlegmHack replacement
    PocketRogue: a very old game for the pc that I played constantly. Thank God I still can.
    PrefEd: Edit the saved and unsaved preferences on your visor.
    Solitare: SolFree is the name of the file.
    Space Trader: Like Dope Wars, without condoning illegal drug use (actually I just think it plays better)
    X-Master: hackmaster's worthy replacement.

    I've decided to become enigmatic.
