See, I've got both installed, but for one reason only- Flixster's trailers look absolutely horrible.

they do, but you can put the movie in your calendar. but it does put it in its own calendar and doesnt sync to google.

fandango looks better, and they have a quick way to get to theaters. too many steps in flixter.

i have both for now. but will probably get rid of fandango when needed.

These apps were deleted immediately after installation:

LikeMe: worthless.
Where: isn't worth whatever money they're going to charge for it. I'll just launch the web browser and go to yelp, thanks.
mCraig: neutered, since you can't explore *all* of craigslist, nor can you post. I'll just go to craigslist.org, thanks.
Shortcovers: Who can actually read a book this way?
GoodFood: CLUNKY! I'll just launch the Web browser and go to Yelp, thanks.

Applications I haven't deleted (and would likely pay money for if asked):

New York Times
AP mobile
Tweed
Pandora
Fandango
Pocket Mirror


The rest are useless and/or redundant for me.

Classic. The trial expired before I had a chance to try it.

You would think that since palm is being so restrictive with its sdk access program, that they would want to make sure they get -good- applications. I mean speed brain? How it that anthing that couldn't be done in a web page. Palm should get applications that really show what the platform can do
Most of the things that can be done on the Pre can also be done on a web page. That's why they call it WebOS, it's apps are essentially web apps.

Shortcovers lasted about 20 minutes for me, even though I'm desperate for an ebook reader. The program only allows you to read books from them, and it basically streams the content one chapter at a time, never a complete file. Totally worthless on a plane, and youlre dependent on some fly-by-night startup to access a book youlve paid for, if you want to reread it sometime later.

I paid for Classic instead, so I can have several REAL ebook readers while I wait for a native WebOS one. Shortcover is an epic fail, IMNSHO.

I tried to enjoy Speedbrain but it just made me mad at how boring it was, so that was the first to go. I still have Evernote, thinking that there must be something to it that I am missing. What does it do?

I thought I read somewhere on this site that there's some hidden code in the OS where you can activate a Delete function (if you can access the commented-out code) to allow you to get rid of that bloatware NASCAR program?

I unistalled mobile by Citysearch. Where is better IMO. Classic may be next since I can't verify that they allowed spaces in the Hotsync I'd (trial expired before the updat).

First to go was Speed Brain. I've only installed a handful, and this one wore out its welcome after a couple days.

Never tried to rid myself of Nascar. In fact, followed along with today's race using my Pre.

I had initially downloaded Fandango simply because its popularity causes it to show up on the main Apps page. However, for some reason, Fandango only lists 4 of the theaters in my vicinity, whereas Flixster shows 17 (yeah, there's a lot of movie theaters near me). For that reason, Fandango had to go.

Flixster isn't perfect either, though. For some reason, on Fridays showtimes are never available for any of the 17 said theaters (has this happened to anyone, btw?). Which is the night I'm most likely in need of the app.

I had downloaded Connect4, but between only having 10 games (stupid demo) and continually losing to the computer (damn diagonal!), I ended up erasing it.

Sudoku is hard to use, but since I'm such a fan I've kept it... it's good for the 20-minute train commute I take every weekday. Speed Brain sucks, but it's not a terrible thing to have if you've got a minute to kill, especially with the current lack of games in the App Catalog. So those two I kept.

Haven't found myself erasing too many apps because I'm rather selective about what I download in the first place. I just wish I could get rid of that stupid Nascar app. I'll never use it, and that icon is just an eyesore.

OK, I'm just kidding. Pandora was the first one I installed. Nascar was the first one I tried to install. Tried that before even installing anyting. Spaz was the only one I downloaded then uninstalled. I found Twead easier to use.
I'm working pretty consistently to make improvements to Spaz, and I think we've worked out most of the performance issues. Currently sending out test builds that have URL shortening and message shortening built-in. If you feel like giving it another shot and have questions, bug us at out new support site: Welcome - Spaz Support

I uninstalled Connect 4 first so I could reinstall it to play 1 player.
