    Is Flight Status working again? Last I heard/read, the data site he used was no longer available and he was searching for a new place to get flight data. I haven't checked in quite some time though...

    OK... I just went out and saw that he updated it to a new flight data provider... Sweet...

    I use LudusP on my wife's 755p to take care of that problem with TreoLauncher. It might work with LauncherX.

    That is what I love about the 755p. I have 32MB left on RAM and 996MB left on my 4GB SD card.

    Instead of buying lots of 3rd party apps I'm concentrating on learning to tweak the preinstalled apps to make them work for my needs. Reading the regular palm books gave me some ideas.

    I did purchase the following 3rd party apps to help me tweak the preinstalled apps:

    Treo Select Text (dial from calendar)
    Shortcut5 (custom macro date/time stamp to turn memo into a journal)
    Fontsmoother (allows tiny font in Blazer)

    I purchased the full version of:

    Documents to Go
    Kinoma

    I also have:

    PdaNet (allows my Asus Eee to hook up to the web anywhere)
    PdaReach (I can see my Treo screen, enlarged, on my Asus Eee and type)
    Splash Money (A few more excel classes and I think I will no longer need this)
    Mobipocket (I have access to a large city library's e-book collection)

    I have tried out all sorta of 3rd party apps and am not impressed for long. They are slow, malfunction, have long learning curves, harder to backup info, etc) Some people label power users by the # of 3rd party apps. I label power users as people who know how to use what they have to it's fullest potential.

    I use my Treo (and now also my new beloved Asus Eee) to help me manage severe short term memory loss. Yes, I occasionally play on my machines, but I need them to function as perfectly as possible. Loading down my machines with lots of junk is kind of like a blind person spending lots of time teaching his seeing eye dog to play frisbee and to climb ladders. Not a good idea.

    I've never heard of a lot of these programs... a little explaination of how they make your life easier would be nice...

    I don't think they all make life easier. I think some or a mojority depending on the person make life less dull. I honestly think the Treo is a Hobbie, because a business man who has too much time on his hands can get by with a blackberry with lacking 3rd party support as apposed to a Treo nerd who plays Sudoku and streams podcasts.

    You must have more invested in Palm apps than most people have invested in PC apps.

    Wow, is all I say.

    I admit I have 22 3rd party apps but I couldn't agree with you more.

    I dropped Dialbyphoto from the list and replaced it with TakePhone. Functions replaced photos. Also Weather was replaced my the free app, kmeteo. Kinoma makes it as a honorable mention for its streaming radio and Youtube viewing (although neither are implemented flawlessly). I finally settled on Zlauncher because LauncherX wouldn't stick to the home key (I could assign it with Butler, but then I would lose the ability to hold down home for the recent apps list). If Bulter is not on my prior list, I add it now. It is an app that I easily take for granted after resisting it for so long.

    I like to read through these lists because they spark me to look into some of the apps people list. When I switched to a Treo from my long tradtional Palm PDA lineage lists like this were helpful. So, in that vein, here's my list:

    Apps/Utilites
    LauncherX - used it back since the LncherIII days, starting to show some age and lack of new skins. Latest version works good with current Treos/Centro, just need to update.
    Agendus - been using this used this back to the NEWTON days.
    MPG - to track car MPG from Catamount Software another old school Newton developer - also of note is their PocketMoney program which I used to use religiously but not so much anymore. There are other, fancier money and car tracker programs, but these are elegant in their simplicity.
    4Cast - To download the daily weather everyday
    Sunrise / Plucker - To download RSS and off-line web pages from PC to read later. Other RSS readers just don't do full articles as well as this combination and Blazer it just too slow for the job most of the time. Plus, this is better for battery life when reading daily news in bed at night.
    LoanPro - Gotta know how much I'll actually be paying amortized out before buying that car/house...
    KeyGEx - better keylock for Treo
    NVBackup - have tried several other palm backup programs, this is simply the best ever made, period.
    Filez - or really any other file manager (McFile, etc) but Filez is free.
    MiniTones - Gotta be able to have custom ringtones on the treo

    Utilities to make the Treo look nice:
    Colorize - better color themes for stock OS
    FontSmoother - with WindowsMCE font Seoge
    Skinner - created a midnight blue skin for my 755 and a burgundy one for my wife's 755.


    Games
    BikeOrDie - liked it better on the TX, but still a keeper
    Cribbage 3.0 - Freeware but not updated in a long time. Shows up as B&W on treo unless you force 8bit graphics on the program using Colorize or something.
    Escape - simple game but hard to put down

    and lastly:
    PalmInternals - To find out which of these programs above are slowing the Palm down...


    and then many others that get occasional use but really I could live without. Not many "TREO" specific utilities as I have found myself just using the built in Phone functions and being happy with them so far. For example, the various Profile software (like Profiles or ProfileCare), while a great addition to the Treo are all waaay to much of a resource hog.

    Within the default launcher (home button), press the menu-D button combo or tap top-left corner with stylus or finger. The displayed list contains all the apps loaded in the RAM. Delete what you don't need. I recommend backup to mini-SD or Hotsync with desktop before deleting anything.
