    Uh, do you think maybe you could do a search on these things? Every one of them is referenced in one thread or another.

    true...all of your answers can be found here...

    Not to mention that several of them are preference oriented, for example best email? Or best launcher? Answers depend upon your needs/likes/dislikes....search really is your friend on this one.

    ahem...I did an exhaustive search...what I am looking for is the apps that are best in class- easiest to use, must haves, simple, powerful and elegant. best value= kinda like the mac or the treo but for software...I am looking for the apps that you admire, that think it through, and then think it through again...in the catgories I mentioned based on what You want them to do.... Thanks!

    Exactly what I was thinking. If you searched so exhaustively, you would have answered at least half of your questions (I'm being generous, since all have been answered).

    Ideawizard....even your name implies that you like to do the "thinking" while letting others get their hands dirty for you. As Joebar said, might work great for you in the office, but here...good luck. Even if everyone here gave you the answers on which software is "best in class", which is highly debatable and in the end a personal preference anyway, why on earth would we seek out the best available deals for you to go buy them? This is a very helpful community, but you do have to take SOME initiative on your own.

    Man you guys are harsh. Coudl you at least answer some of the questions? I'd find it very helpful, myself.

    If not, why comment at all?

    I'll answer one question.

    Voice memo:

    SoundRec Free. Has minor issues, but the base functionality is very good.

    This demonstrates the point. Your *preference* is for Soundrec. Is that the "Best in Class"? Debatable.

    Maybe a little harsh, but the points made are valid.

    This guy cracks me up. He would definitely fit right in with my drinking buddies, no doubt .

    But, in the spirit of kindness and since the often kind and generous TreoCentral crowd can show their fangs once in a while, I'll throw you a bone.

    This thread should help you get started: http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...1&page=1&pp=20

    Then you might want to read through all the discussion categories as they do give you many thread topics requested above. As far as bargain hunting, if you find a good site please let me know Otherwise, it's probably going to be a tough sell to this crowd till you have some informed requests.
