    It should be noted that a lot of the programs you listed are not Free but rather Shareware...a BIG difference.

    No fantastic freeware list is complete without HandyShopper 2. I just can't believe this thing is free! It's so complete and flexible that I use it for many lists.

    If you want to keep track of your CD collection you could use my favorite music freeware called "CD List." I just love this sortware, now I could have a database of all my CDs including the name of the Author, Album and even the songs. The best thing is that you don't even have to type the info in. You just place a CD in your CD-ROM and an interface will look for a perfect match on the CD dll or on the Internet. Then you store the CD info in you hard drive and the next time you do a hotsync it will update your palm database.

    Here is the link for palmgear

    If you love music then this is your chance to carry your collection in your pocket


    Enjoy...

    There's been a lot of great freeware ideas added lately, so I thought I'd move this thread to the top again, as I still point people others to it when they ask about free software.

    Here's some additions I've seen lately:

    Syncro found this one:

    http://www.palmgear.com/software/sho...03&prodID=8284
    Standard IE 5 Explorer Bar to convert selected text to DOC format PDB files. Install file automatically using Palm Installer software.

    And Flacks/Hoser found Progect, a great Project Management program:

    http://progect.sourceforge.net/

    What other great freeware/opensource (let's not include shareware on this list) have people found lately?

    Ahhh, freeware. It's about the only thing I've got on my palm so far (Can't stomach paying $30 for some of the shareware out there, but I may have to to get a decent accounting package ). So far, here's what I carry around with me:

    BigClock -- Used mostly for quick date/time lookups, but I'm playing with the timers and alarms.
    HandyShopper -- version 1.7. Haven't tried 2.0 yet
    iSiloFree -- great DOC reader, and reads iSilo format, too!
    GNU Keyring -- great open source account/password crypto program
    Mapopolis -- though the map for my county seems really limited
    PalmInfo
    Progect -- great free outliner
    Runtime

    I don't have too many games, but the ones I'm currently toying with are:

    Frotz -- 80's text-based adventure games brought back to life!
    SolarWars -- Text-based space merchant game

    Applications I still need to try:

    Avantgo
    DiddleBug
    MailAgt -- mail/news agent. Currently free (still in development).

    And, of course, everything that's been mentioned in this thread that I haven't listed.

    I'd also throw my recommendation behind CSpotRun as great free DOC reader with lots of features (autoscroll, screen rotation) that iSiloFree doesn't have. I've been bouncing between the two of these for docs, settling on iSiloFree for now (I'm reading a couple of docs now that only come in iSilo format).

    Now for a clarification:

    Open source tends not to be copyrighted and is "opened" to any developer that would like to continue development on the product.

    It's been a while since I read the GPL, but I believe that the programs released under the GPL are under copyright, but it states that the programs must be distributed with source code, and that they must be distributed freely (yeah, this is still an oversimplification, but it's the gist of it).

    Sowens,

    You may want to try the PeanutPress reader...it's free and has even more features than CSpotRun.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe pocket chess is Shareware...not freeware.

    I thought it was time to revive this thread once again.

    I came across two new free programs that look interesting:

    PortGrinch:

    http://www.palmspot.com/whatsnew/detail/ps6966ane.html

    (And, yes, it is another part of the mega-marketing-and-merchandizing campaign that the studio is putting out, which, of course, completely contradicts the message that Dr. Suess was trying to communicate in regards to Christmas NOT being about crass commercialization, but I digress...)

    and

    My NotesPad:

    http://www.palmspot.com/whatsnew/detail/ps6964ane.html

    One problem with the NotesPad program: I can't install it. It looks cool (a combination of diddle-bug and notepad) but, for some reason, it refuses to load onto my Visor.

    Any other new free program finds out there?

    Where did you find the light version that is freeware?? I took a look on their web site and found that they only offer a trial version of the full software...

    Can you post a URL??

    Anyone else know of any free chess games?

    Cheers,

    cbye,

    If you can find version 1.1 of Pocket Chess, I think it was fully functional. Registration was optional.

    Now the developer has put out version 2.0 and you have to register it to use all the goodies. I haven't used it much yet, but it looks pretty good.

    Chess Genius is also an excellent chess game. Much tougher than the original Pocket Chess. Don't know if its tougher than PC 2.0 or not.
