    OH....okay...now I get it.

    When you are installing programs onto a PPC there are two different type of installation files EXE files and CAB files.

    The exe files are to be used on a desktop/laptop to install a program onto the PPC device.

    The cab file is to be installed directly from the PPC phone, not through a desktop/laptop.

    Think from the perspective of your PPC. exe files are installed remotely through activesync from a desktop or laptop. The cab file is installed locally right on the phone.

    This is so that if you download a program to your laptop you have an exe file to install the program onto your PPC. The cab file lets you download a program from the net directly to your phone and install it.

    If you are installing a cab file locally saved on your phone, yes you would need to use a file manager of some kind on your PPC to find and open the cab file.

    I hope this helps.

    Yup....if you open up the Pocket Plus (either in Program or Settings) there is a tab with detail options for each and every feature. You can disable or enable whatever you like. Very nice to balance features with resources.

    But how do you know where to put the cab file on your device? That's my quandry. I have files all over the place...

    Is there a way to have an icon on the today screen that would say, "games" (where is that games folder, anyway?) Sort of like the palm launcher? Games - then tap games and see a list of games you have on the device?

    Also, (ah, you knew another question was coming, didn't you?) is there a way to map several programs to a button, a la HBX and 1 button pro on palm?

    Man, I'm loving this device so far, I must say. Still waiting for BT headphones to really judge.

    put the cab file anywhere, it should delete once the program is installed. If it doesn't, just manually do it.

    WHERE? If I download or copy a cab file to my device, I just copy it to My Documents folder....then delete the cab file after I install it.

    TODAY: Pocket Plus has a version of this feature. You can create Tabs. I had a tab for Office, Games, and System. Under each tab you can put as many icons for programs as you want. But....be warned the more icons you put there the more resource intensive Pocket Plus becomes. So try to restrain yourself to you most favorite games and most used system tools, ie. Resco File Manager.

    ASSIGNING BUTTONS: There is a perfect program for you called ButtonMapper. You can not only map multiple programs to a button, you can even create and map Macros to a button so it will do several steps and commands for you with one push of a button.

    Perfect for opening a program and loading a specific file with on push of button. I will have to search for the link again

    Nah. I vote for you to stay. I think their should be communication between users of different platforms. We're not at war, unless you ask **** Cheney.

    I just added the coolest new calculator / converter I have found to the list above. I have been using it for about a week now and it is by far the most full functioned utility of it's kind I have seen.....and at a fraction of the cost of some others I have seen with less features.:

    My Converter Pro ($14.95): IMHO, the best multi-purpose tool: calculator, unit converter, currency converter, and coder for your Pocket PC

    I've been a PPC user since CE days -even through my encounter with Palm on my trusty 270. Hobbes is Real indeed and I endorse his three favs -in fact, Voice Command may be THE reason to use PPC. (How about a Top-10 reasons poll?) I'd add Pocket Informant, ListPro, and UBook, a free and relatively feature-rich reader with a very nice UI/display -it reads HTML, PDB, PRC, RTF, TXT and even JPEG files with a simple image viewer.

    As for the Other Handhelds forum, it's thriving thanks to Hobbes, TonyH, BobD, et al, and as long as we keep clickin away, I expect TC to welcome it/us since clicking is the name of this game. Maybe especially if -as Felipe suggests, we mostly "stay in our neighborhood". But it seems that some or most of us are pro-Treo also/anyway, which is why we are here and why we even wander.
    You may be right; I may be crazy. But, the Treo may be just the device I've been looking for.

    I have been using the latest versions of Informant and WebIsMail for the last month or so now.

    Informant is great and as far as I am personally concerned nearly flawless. I love the calendar layout and the flexibility to customize it.

    The contacts are good, but the list seems a little small to click as easily with your finger.

    Web IsMail is certainly more powerful than the default email app that comes on the PPC-6600. It does still have some memory card management issues, but more than livelable with the extra options it provides.

    To take a close look at each and download a demo go to:

    Thanks.. and I'm so glad you guys are talking about this stuff here because it really answers my questions more from my knowledge point (palm and Treo based more then PPC and 6601) and gives me a better comparison on users who have used both to read about....

    Amie
    Amie, I use peacemaker and it beams contacts just fine. That's all I really use it for really so if your hubby with Palm OS just wants to exchange contact details, peacemaker is fine. I can test appointment beaming and let you know later if you're interested

    Have to agree about Informant, after using Agendus I was really disappointed with the built in app .

    Are you not able to navigate the contacts with the D-pad? Seems to work for me. Left/Right selects from the list of letters across the top, then Up/Down scrolls through the list.

    I also eventually discovered after reading the manual that pressing and holding the 'action' button on the d-pad brings up a 'context sensitive' menu. Quite useful.

    The only thing I don't like is the functionality of the d-pad in the week view screen. Left/Right skips through weeks, and I'd really like Up/Down to move through the appointments in the week I'm viewing. It doesn't seem to do this though, it just does exactly the same as Left/Right and I can't find a way of changing it.

    Two apps which I add to this list (understanding this was an old thread but who cares)...

    MemMaid and Tweak2k2

    MemMaid in particular automates the process of moving DLLs to your Storage card. A feature worth the price you pay for the software alone.

    This is another Button Mapper Link Here



    SK Tools is another must have app, What makes this standout is that it will remove duplicate files, contacts, appts. keeping your device clean,.
    Lost of screen shots here.
