    Why does it seem so difficult to find high quality freeware for the Palm?

    Rant here: I've looked at FreewarePalm.com, and it's okay. But it's 99% stink and 1% gold. And that gold is very hard to find!! If you want an LED to blink, some new skinning tool, or just a way to access your Micro SD card you have to cough up $15 to $30. If you get a handful of this simple solutions, then you've paid more for the software than you did for the Centro itself.

    Are there any resources for good Palm freeware? Or will I have to make one some day?

    Tooting my own horn here: I couldn't find a decent source to locate high quality freeware for Windows, so I started downseven.com. I might need to add a Palm library to it.

    Sometimes paying for software is the only way to go if you want a top quality app. For example you won't find a better mail app than ChatterEmail, which isn't free. I also gladly paid my $14 for IM+, which allows the Centro to use Skype. There are tons of great free apps out there but sometimes the good ones cost money.

    @fareal:

    Great list of freeware! Thanks!

    @SueWalsh:

    Totally agree. Some software are just gonna cost something. I gladly paid for TAKEphONE, even better on sale for US$10. But sometimes it's refreshing to see great software available for free. I don't know how many times I've coughed up money for software and later found a free alternative.

    For the Windows world, I created my Web site (downseven.com) to help folks find not-just-free software for Windows but really good free software. I think I might add a Palm section. FreewarePalm is a good site, but there's just too much mediocre to bad software there. It takes forever to sift through it.

    Hope everyone has a terrific day.
