    I am starting this thread based on another thread that was started, but did not get anywhere. In particular I am curious if any other members have found applications for OS5 that work in a similar fashion as the older PQA apps.

    That is they take advantage of the Treo 600's or (another OS 5 devices)wireless capability

    That is, an app that you load with a tidy direct front end that will connect to the back end of Internet databases and information archives.

    I know of 3 such apps that I use frequently and they are great, rather than having to search for the information in a browser environment.

    They are:

    Directory Assistant-
    A great app for finding phone #s, and getting directions (front ends YP.com, and mapquest.

    Highway Weather-
    easy to use front-end that gets weather for all over the country (believe it connects to NWB data base.

    Flight Status-
    An app the front ends the FAA flight status data base that works great.

    It would be great if any other members have found similar type applications that make connections to all of this wealth of information with a simple front end/dedicated application, rather than having to ramble through websites via blazer, web pro, and reqwireless.

    If you have some you want to share post them here.

    Another I could think of is Vindigo, but you have to subscribe to the database for a monthly fee.

    Has anybody else found any of these great apps. I am looking for one that gives you ski conditions for North American ski resorts. Also how about one that helps with Finding coffee shops.
