    I did a search for a topic like this but I couldn't find anything specific like this. I just got my Sprint Treo 650 and have unlimited vision and I think it's absolutely awesome to be able to work or play with your 650 using your internet connection.

    What programs or things do you do with your Treo's wireless internet that you find to be absolutely amazing or fun? Here's my short list:

    Directory Assistant program:
    A phonebook in your palm. It comes in so handy when you are out and about and can't find access to a phone book. Heck, it even lets you dial from the available numbers it comes back with!

    RSS Reading:
    I've used mNews and this is great. No more having to go to each website and reading the latest news. All your RSS feeds are downloaded to your Treo on the go and read them when you want.

    Win-Hand program:
    This allows you to access your actual computer from anywhere in the world. You can see exactly what you would be able to see if you were in front of your computer. And its free!

    FTP:
    If you have an ftp server you can upload/download unto your server. Comes in handy if you have a website.

    PocketTunes:
    Online Radio Stations! Wow. I fell in love when I found this feature. It only broadcasts Shoutcast radio stations but there are tons of them.

    Blog Posting:
    Being able to post to your Blog wherever you are is great. I created my own blog site from scratch using PHP and MySQL so I can't use the programs out there but the point is that there are programs out there for this. There are even programs that let you post pictures to your blog. Awesome.

    SplashMoney Online Banking:
    I can download all my transactions from my bank unto my Treo without having to access my computer. Very cool feature.

    That's my current list. What do you guys use your with your wireless internet connection that is awesome and maybe even ground-breaking?

    Is Win-Hand free now (again)?

    I've started using VNC to remote control my home computer, which works, but Win-Hand was really nice when it was free. . .

    There's also FlightStatus, which I don't use that much...but once or twice a year. Still cool, nonetheless!

    My favorites, though....are Pssh and Wassdat. I'm truly surprised how few people have heard of Wassdat. Check it out....saves a lotta time. Similar to Dir Assist, except it's not quite as "convenient" as it still uses your browser (blazer/xiino), but it's more customizable. And it's only $8...well worth it!

    Then there's also the "Duhs!!", such as Blazer/Xiino, Verichat, and email (tried chatter but I still can't justify $30 for it...guess you gotta be in the corporate world to 'get it').

    chatter ... guess you gotta be in the corporate world to 'get it'

    Nah. The killer feature for me with Chatter is the Summary view shows all mail from multiple different email accounts, color coded to know which is from which account; and best of all the ability to check all mailboxes with one command.

    Yea...I only gots one email box...don't see the need in having more than one to check, except for my "decoy" box where I sign up for everything online or in person....check it once a week to see if there's anything of value. Or if I sign up for something that I'd like to continue getting emails for, I change the email address to the one(s) that I check. [Now, they are] all forwarded to one account, for easy access. Chatter 'causes my phone to crash quite a bit, and the IMAP's not truly instantaneous the two times that I sent myself emails. I had to check 'em before they showed up. I'm prolly gonna go back to Versamail's 15-min. checking.

    Weather Radar

    As for me, the cool bit is being able to quickly & easily check the weather radar. Blazer supports animated GIF files, so find the links to the specific graphic files on weather.com or accuweather.com and avoid all the other junk. Maybe not a big deal elsewhere, but in the SouthEast in summertime...

    Couple examples:

    http://image.weather.com/web/radar/u...edium_usen.jpg
    http://sirocco.accuweather.com/nx_mo...inmaSIRGA_.gif

    Traffic Info
    Local more to Georgia/ATL, but GeorgiaNavigator has a WAP based site. Way cool.

    don't see the need in having more than one to check

    Generally I agree -- I just prefer to not intermingle the emails from my couple of businesses with my personal email. Keeps things "cleaner". That's why it's so great to have as many options as we have -- something for everyone.

    Oh, and for what it's worth, Chatter has been solid for me, but I understand some have had issues with Butler or other apps.
