    So I've been a Palm User since my Handspring Visor 8MB. From there I went to a Treo 300 and then to a 650 and now to a 800w (My first windows mobile device).

    So as you can see from the palm history (over a decade of the palm os), I don't know much about WM software. I've gone to the today screen layout shown by Wrecks in the What does your 800 look like thread. And it's pretty awesome.

    I like the Mobile Shell software and would love to have a tab for sports scores and news.

    I found Pocket SportsCenter and it doesn't function correctly for me. And would like something a little more colorful. I then found the SI Mobile for the 750. It works fine when manually installed on the 800, but No Today Screen Plugin (well there is one, but it only shows a link to the program).

    So I'm strapped. Any other advice or recommendations would be great. I'd love to have team specific news and scores as well as league stuff.

    I would think going with an RSS reader like newsbreak or prss and finding a good feed would be your best option. Prss is free and awesome IMO.

    That is pretty good, first post after 5 years.

    So I went with PocketSportsCenter 1.8 (was using 1.6 before for Windows for Smartphones) It worked fine until I went out of coverage range and it decided to start throwing errors. But using it in the today screen and not in SPBShell made for a bit of vertical scrolling which I can live with. But it also does some image ghosting when I scroll in the area where PocketSportsCenter sits.

    I've never looked for RSS feeds with updated scores. I use MLB RSS feeds for League News and Yankees News (they tend to have the most drama), but not scores.

    Any other possible sources of Sports Scores on the Today Screen?

    Can you post a link to pocket score board? I have decided that I need scores on my today screen and want them seperate from my RSS.

    Sportscenter is perfect but I am having the display issues as well.
