    I am new to the whole PDA thing and have looked for some games and other programs to put on my new toy and have found somthings but all want money in exchange.

    Does anyone make and offer programs just for the hell of it and to improve the Treo community?

    TIA

    I personally like C-Net cause you can choose "freeware" from the drop down menu. Makes it easier then scavenging.

    Hey I'm getting a Treo next week, other than Treo300SMS, what are some "must have" programs that everyone is using? I looked at snappermail's site, and I think I'll replace the Eudora client with that, but is there anything else I might need?

    Here's the stuff I consider essential, or good basic tools. Some are still in trial period and I may not keep, but so far they're working out.

    The stuff useful to most people:

    Cell Plan (track usage)
    WModem (use my treo as a modem for my laptop)
    X-Master (use hacks)
    Eudora (email)
    AIM/ICQ/Y!/MSN (options for if I need to reach someone)
    EudoraWeb (text-optimized, proxyless browser)
    Xiino (browser than handles some javascript)
    Web clippings
    Atomica PQA (fast intelligent information lookup)
    Dir Assist PQA (white pages, directions)
    Mapquest PQA
    Weather PQA
    FileZ (view all your files, helps recover from reset loops)
    SyncAll (backup all files)
    TreoAlertMgr (repeatedly alert for SMS and VMs, so I notice them)
    TreoTools (turn on data connection with wireless modem)
    RecoEcho+ (graffiti!)
    Treo300SMS (receive and send SMS messages)
    TreoPictureCallerID (custom pictures for incoming calls)
    AutoShiftHack (stops auto-captalization, handy for Eudora)
    CorrectHack (automatically replace certain strings with other strings)
    Crash and CrashLog (log my crash messages, auto-reset after crash)
    MarknDial (dial any number in a document)
    PopHack (popup list of things to put in text fields)
    Switcheroo (key shortcuts to any app)
    treo keyboard utils 1.31 (move cursor with keyboard, including next/prev field)

    Some other stuff I find useful, but might not be to many people:
    PalmVNC (remote control GUIs)
    Mocha Telnet (ssh!)
    tg ssh (ssh!)
    upIRC (irc client)
    VT Online (general terminal/comm program)

    Thanx to jshrieve and all the posters with the links! I had a Palm Vx two years ago as my first palm, but as it was a company item, when the company laid me off, the Vx went too. As such this will mark my return to palm computing, and I really want to hit the ground running. So I am going to try and build up a library of applications before hand, so I can just kick back an test once I get it!
