    I'd be interested to know what contact applications people like (besides the one that comes with the Treo - which seems the best to me so far).

    I have tried Beyond contacts and Contacts 5 and don't really like them. I'd like to have something a little more robust than what came with the phone, but I don't like it that these other applications seem to totally take over the Treo. Like with contacts 5, I can't get back to the dial pad once I have opened it! It seems to think all I want to do is look at contacts. I don't like that it takes an extra step to dial a number or how, even though it is supposed to be optimized for the Treo, that it doesn't know I am entering a number in a "phone number" space and requires me to hold down the option key. I also don't like these programs that have so many menus and icons that you lose half of your screen. Is there something out there that I am missing? Thanks

    I just discovered Keysuite and tried it. I think it is better than the other applications I have tried, BUT it doesn't make good use of the Treo's 5-way button. I emailed the maker, Chapura, and asked them if a "Treo-optimized" version is coming out anytime soon. If there was such a thing, I would buy it, even at their $60 price, which is rather steep.

    Another drawback is that it seems to take up a fair amount of memory.

    As mentioned above, I find the programs that fill your screen with icons and buttons to be annoying, and Keysuite doesn't do that.

    I went through this about two months ago. I fully agree with you I don't want my tiny screen filled with silly buttons. But I want an improvement to the contacts area.
    Bottom line KISS keep it simple

    oh an cheap!

    If you like a bit of challenge, do not miss 5-way navigation and other Treo 600 things, and use HanDBase 3.0x, how about creating a contact manager database with it. The possibilities are many with it. Interaction withe the built-in databook is possible with plug-ins and HanDBase also supports alarms. Searches are fast, capacity is huge, encryption (64-bit) is possible, up to 100 fields per database, and it is relational.

    I am now a fan of Contacts 5. The interface is amazing and the functionality is almost all you could ask for. I can't wait to see their upcoming offering for a Datebook as I would love to ditch Agendus.

    I have Contacts5 as my shortcut within the phone. I would highly recommend it.

    I use (and have been using on previous palms for years) "SuperNames" for contact management and "ContactsPro" (which is a killer app!) for quick fingerdialing. Recently discovered "FingerDial" which also works well and has a handy favortites button.
    I agree with you that "Contacts 5" is too complex and too many steps involved.

    I have tried both Contacts5, Beyond Contacts and Datebook5 but have gone back to Agendus. I like its ability to maintain a contact history as well as integrated datebook and mail app. But, eveyone has their likes and dislikes so this just my opinion. Good luck!

    Re post #2 above, Chapura tech support emailed me back and said that their next release of Keysuite will have Treo 5-way support, but it won't be available for "a few months."

    I haven't tried Agendus yet. I remember reading something about it that made me think I wouldn't like it, but don't even remember what that was anymore. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

    You seem to miss the point !

    Why would anybody spend time recommending a program he has tried and not liked ?

    He was not asking for recommendations of programs he tried already.

    That is the meaning of the reply..........
