    Hey can any of you give me some good suggestions of what free apps I should get for the Pre? I just switched from a blackberry tour so I'm not that familiar with the environment of The Pre anymore. Also if you have any good case suggestions for the phone that would be great thanks!

    Sure. Here's a list of some of the most popular apps across platforms that are all free:

    1.Pandora
    2.Slacker Radio
    3.Grooveshark
    4.Fandango
    5.Where
    6.Yelp
    7.OpenTable
    8.Evernote
    9.New York Times
    10.AP Mobile
    11.Forbes.com
    12.The Weather Channel
    13.Weatherbug
    14.Facebook
    15.Foursquare
    16.LinkedIn
    17.Epocrates
    18.Kobobooks

    There are plenty others, but that seems like a decent start.

    Regarding cases, I'm just using the Palm case and it works fine. Welcome!

    And don't forget about all the Homebrew apps, which mostly are free.

    You can get a list of Homebrew app from Precentral's menu.. look for the label 'APPS' in between accessory store and themes.

    And from that APP menu you can also take a look at all the apps available from the Palm App Catalog.

    I believe both have a limited sort option.

    Palm's App Catalog is now over 2000 apps.

    I'm not sure home many are in Homebrew.

    If you are into Games... oh.. you want free.. I was going to mention NFS.. Need for Speed... its a very graphics intensive game. It's just like the one on the iPhone.

    It will show you how great the Pre is.

    Oh wait, I think they are offering 'trail' games for free... check those out.

    But my main apps are:

    Newsroom (not free but there is a trail I believe)
    drPodder (in homebrew but going to the Palm App Catalog any day now, might be there already as I write this)

    Those are by far the best.

    And yes, Engadget.. I have that but use Newsroom.

    Oh wait one more important one:

    RadioTime... and it's free .. streaming radio... and I'm in to News Talk Shows!

    But you can get music, or stuff like Leo LePorts 'TWIT' This Week in Tech.

    FaceBook and Engadget.

    Comics also is surprisingly a really entertaining app.

    missed Mediafly, RadioTime, Fandango, and DirecTV (if you have that). Get Preware installed and you will be amazed at what's available
