    shsh is doing a very nice discount on their applications this month. I downloaded TAKEphONE and played around with it a bit. It's obviously highly configurable with a series of preferences that makes DateBk6 look puny. After a bit of playing about, I didn't see enough enhancements that would make me want to get away from my present configuration using the basic interface with Butler and DateBk6. I mean, I can access apps and urls via long presses already. What am I missing here?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd start by looking here. It's just the best looking 'home' screen for PalmOS. imo. Check out the screenshots throughout that thread, especially the oned with the jumbo clocks available towards the end of that thread, gives it a very modern look.

    Check out 2day from ShSh Software while you're at it. It is a must for me.

    Goodness. I used TakePhone, 2Day, Forecast and Datebook 6 - a great team - even used ZLauncher.

    Thanks for the thread. I've seen it before but beyond big clocks and a bunch of skins, I'm not seeing functionality over what the Centro has as default.

    I like the Agenda look but I kept getting the week view which I never use. I must not have a pref set properly.

    That's pretty much it- a pretty face for the same old functions. I can't think of anything that TAKEphONE does fuction-wise that cannot be accomplished with the stock device, really. I just like having everything all in one place for quick access, especially the current weather and the custom internet search function. There's other things TAKEphONE can do to make your calling experience easier- like saving calling-card numbers, international ext. etc. But like I said, all that can be done with a stock device, it would just take longer.

    Takephone provides a major update to the appearance of your PalmOS phone. No longer any need to be apologetic for it's screen display.

    Don't forget about the iBar display for photos/speed dial and iBar display for app/icons.

    Hmmm. I grabbed it hoping that primarily, it would handle the phone database list a bit better. I don't much care for the way I have to dig up numbers now, nor for the slightly-too-small on screen numbers when dialing. Beauty is a side benefit only if the function makes sense.

    It's ability to handle the phone database far surpasses that found in the WM world. To get anything close to what TakePhone provides, I have the first/last name and often times the company name in the same line/position on my Touch Pro. It handles things lots better.

    Thanks. Will install now!

    Weird. Post via Centro last night, and not here!

    Anyway, LOVE THIS PROGRAM! Fantastic. (And I haven't even really used it yet!)

    I'm liking this more and more. Anything other than a dark skin seems to be a bit of a PITA to customize for font legibility. Am I missing something?

    I'm using a black background with yellow, red, green and white for different fields.

    Right. Seems like a black background is best to make the text pop. Geez, the small font is really small. I registered 2Day this afternoon and have the Day view replacing the Agenda view for Datebk6. Like it.

    I may be a lone dissenter. I have used NOTHING WORSE than Takephone. It effed up my phone so damn bad I have had to get it completely erased and reflashed by Palm.

    Sorry you had probems but I don't think I've ever seen a post inidicating TAKEphONE causing any problems like yours. I guess there are always some issues that can't be resolved.
