    Let's start a thread of fun/useful apps that make the Treo 300 work better.

    For example, I tried to download the Moviefone software for Palm VII but it didn't work. Someone know of a movie listing/ticket ordering app that works?

    Seattle's transportation department has a PDA app that shows traffic details, but that didn't work either, so I now have a shortcut to the webpage that loads pretty fast. That's handy.

    Anyone else have any great mobile-specific websites/apps that they're using now?

    PS - I wish Yahoo made a site similar to my.yahoo.com that I could customize and make my Treo 300 homepage!

    Get CorrectHack (http://www.dovcom.com). It's way better than trying to use the list type key to access shortcuts.

    Check out the super cool video player with sound - free - at www.kinoma.com. Kinoma producer also allows you to put your own videos on the Treo 300. There are a few good sample movies on Kinoma site and also on the Sony site (linked from Kinoma.com).

    I like being able to play movies on the Treo...way cool!

    Now I understand why external memory ,like a compact flash card, can be useful (to have access to multimedia files on the Treo). Previously, I couldn't imagine using up 16 megs with standard applications alone.

    Still, very cool....

    Sprint announced a partnership with Handango today in which Sprint is now marketing Palm software (fyi ... it's the same software found on Handango's site, but Sprint-flavored).

    From your PC: http://sprint.handango.com/PlatformH...d=1&siteId=561

    From your Treo: http://sprint.handango.com/palm/

    Yahoo does, sorta - go to wap.yahoo.com; select us or uk/ireland.

    It basically mirrors your selections (in a lite form) from my.yahoo

    What would REALLY be cool is if you could use your PCS Vision account to login to this site and then purchase software that would be added to your next SPCS bill, instead of having to pay with a credit card .

    upIRC ( http://www.arthurian.nu/upirc )
    works really well for mobile chatting

    pixer ( www.pixer.net )
    send and receive picture and photo messages. a bad/good thing is that you have to use an email that they provide (user@pixer.net) but still pretty cool.

    noah lite ( www.arslexis.com )
    good free dictionary - it does take some memory though. but for knot vrey good cpellers it works great.

    Anyone ever try the ActiveSky media player? The one for the Visor Prism seems to work fine with the Treo 300.

    No way to encode films from what I've seen on their site, but sites like Atom Films offer content.

    Try SilverScreen from Pocketsensei software. Really dresses up your Treo's application lauch environment!

    http://www.pocketsensei.com/

    Also the MAIL, FAX and PAGENow applications from MarkSpace software are great - allow you to send email, pages and FAXes from your Treo!

    TakePhone is a good wrapper for quick access to a large number of contacts.

    There's a similar one for ppc. Ppc catalog has 4 titles, Palm catalog has 12,621 titles. Would be nice if the freebies could be installed over the air, though.

    Is there an application out there that imitates a GPS by using a triangulation algorithm calculated from the three nearest cell towers from your Treo?

    If there is, I could use it when I get lost - to help me find my way.

    Anyone? Anyone?

    In order to get your treo to use thees pqa utility's you have to install webclipping for non palm devices.

    Change is a challenge to the adventurous, an opportunity to the alert, a threat to the insecure.

    what are theese
  19. #19  
    Not knowing what I was getting into, I downloaded the latest version (2.54) of Diddlebug. Only to see I apparently can not use it because I do not have the silk screen aspects of the screen. Does anyone have any idea on how to use Diddlebug with the Treo 300?

    Thanks

    Silkscreen isn't required to use Diddlebug. It works fine on the Treo. You can assign functions to the buttons under the options menu.

    There are also numerous ways to add Graffiti to the Treo. Recoecho is free for Treo users (see the news here for details). I prefer the freeware Newpen graffiti app. With one of these, the Treo can do everything that a standard Palmpilot can, and more.
