    I read about this on PocketPC Thoughts. It functions like the search in Firefox 2.0 (you know, where you type something and it starts to guess what you might want to search for?)...

    Small footprint (166K I think?) and with an EV-DO connection, it's pretty fast. Just tried it out. Not too bad. Think I'll play with it a bit more. And it looks decent on our square screen.

    looks really useful. I downloaded and immediately used it to look a couple of things on Wikipedia. The suggested words are very very nice. This might be an app I actually rely on since I love to read wikipedia.

    I've been playing with it since I put it on. I read through their site and they show you a bunch of cool ways to find stuff.

    Mobile surf reports in 5 seconds!? It's a keeper for me! And that's not even the half of it! I'm amazed at all it does, and how quickly... I love new free good apps... they make my day.

    Is there a FAQ for Wikipedia? For example, there is a crappy show called "Jericho" that I watch & while most of the time I end up on IMDB, everyone on that board keeps quoting Wikipedia. I go to the main page & cant seem to find much info but they claim there are episode guides within. I cant ever find them.

    That goes for just about everything else I look at on Wikipedia. Any newb advice?

    Try Jericho (disambiguation). If you're talking about the CBS show, there's tons.

    But also, try BOOPSIE! That's why I started the thread...

    Looks like a nice search app.

    However, it wreaks havoc with your start menu. It arrogantly assumes that it should be on your start menu. If you already have 7 items defined, it is problematic on WM5. Removing Boopsie was not as easy as unchecking it since it added itself as the 8th item and shifted existing items around. I needed to zap registry entries to clean up Boopsie's messy installation.

    Not good.

    Saw that it pinned itself there, but I never use my start menu, so it didn't bother me. And I hit the registry any time I uninstall anything to make sure there's nothing left over, so that wouldn't surprise me either, although, if after it was uninstalled it did not leave the Treo the way it was before, that's a strike against it.

    However, (jk), I like it. I'll clean up the detritus left behind later. I'm using it for now... there are too many cool ways to find things that I wouldn't have bothered with before.

    Sorry about that. We use the same .cab file for Smartphone and Pocket PC. On the Smartphone, it just adds a link in the Start Menu folder. We don't adjust any other apps position, so that must be a function of the OS. We'll post a version that does not add itself to the Start menu on the PPC. Thanks for the info. Let us know if anyone has any more suggestions. Send email to support@boopsie.com

    Thanks!
