    C'mon people! Check out Checkbook. There are a lot of people on a thread asking for this stuff who must not have seen it. I was hesitant to root my Pre and still won't but the install method linked with checkbook is the ticket for 'normal people'. I think we need more front page articles about how easy that is to do. I am going to find that thread and let people know about Checkbook.
    Treo 300,600,650,755p and now Pre

    Thank you for your work on Blockdrop. I updated the name in your thread.

    Hello world didn't make the cut? That's my favorite app, by far: it's a seamless blend of utility and ease of use

    I checked the ones I installed and am likely to use, but thanks to everyone who is writing any kind of apps. It's great to see the explosion of possibilities.

    I did not see it, but Blocked is my favorite.
  12. #12  
    Blocked would have been #1
    and pDice would have done good too

    Some of your inclusions vs. some of your ommisions is odd. Splitting the poll in two might work. One poll of just games and then everything else. That way everyone gets a chance.

    Be assured that development is happening and features / bugs are all being tested. IMHO, it could become the standard app all Pre'ers will want, so getting it right will take some time.
    Why can't the mobile device manufactures get that most want a touch screen and a front face QWERTY?

    That is a good idea. Normally you can only include 10 options in a poll. I asked for a one-time poll of 25. I sorted by number of replies to each thread and looks at replies in the past week. The top 25 are posted.

    Thanks to everyone who enjoys My Notification. Hopefully with the help of others around here I can make it even better for the community.

    We're completely flattered that Soundboard made it to the top 10, and I personally am honored and thrilled to be tied with Dilbert/Garfield Daily Comics. I wish I had known about this poll. MyTether deserves a much higher ranking.

    I WANT to use homebrew apps, but ( sorry) a) not quite tech savvy to do it b) worried about screwing up my phone. I do read the posts on how to do it and I know that posters are trying to make it simple, I just am not sure. Sorry ( does this mean I have to give my phone back? )
