    1) A Memo pad type app that takes a scratch memo in 'digital ink.' The simpler the better. I don't need the memo to be recognized - just something to jot down a quick note or number with the stylus.

    2) An alarm app. Butler (v 2.2) seems broken, and the included World Clock alarm is not all that great.

    Make that three apps: a viable PDF reader. This might just be the push that sends me to the dark side... I've got to be able to read PDFs while on the road.

    This is a big issue for me also, and just seems ridiculous that this isn't available.

    I agree on the PDF thing.

    The two alternatives are RepliGo and Adobe's PDF2HTML or PDF2TXT. RepliGo is sort of like Acrobat but makes smaller files and has a fully functional client on Palm OS/PocketPC/Symbian/etc. Only problem is that it doesn't do PDF natively, but it is a sort of substitute.

    If you need to handle PDFs, Adobe has a web form/e-mail address where you can submit a URL for a PDF or an e-mail attached PDF and it will return the PDF text contents as HTML or text. This is useful just for reading the contents, and will not give you any layout/graphics.

    Here is the URL, just bookmark this in Blazer and you'll always be prepared to read PDFs.

    maybe i'm confused on the concept. on the install/software disk for my treo 650 was an installer for the Adobe Reader for PalmOS.

    does this have some deficiency i'm not aware of? i've haven't downloaded any pdf's yet, but the Reader fires up on my 650 and looks like it'll work fine.

    what am i missing?

    the adobe Palm reader does not not read pdf's. they must be converted on the desktop.

    1) diddlebug

    2) Megaclock!


    Regarding pdf's, yes there is no native full pdf support on palmone devies. There is Piscel viewer that supports native pdf on SOny Clies and DTG7 which only supports native text based pdf's... Otherwise you have to use a desktop conduit to convert pdfs to view on your Treo. The best on imo is Repligo 2.0.
