    Sure, it's been discussed... but I always find these threads fun to read. Been using PalmOS software since the Pilot, and I usually find something new in a thread like this. So here are mine:

    Datebk6, Profiles, SnapperMail, SplashID, BackupMan

    LauncherX, BackupBuddy, LED Off (I hate little lights!), TCPMP, VolumeCare. Add Docs to Go and my Treo does everything I need quickly and easily.

    I don't use it myself, but I just got done installing it for a co-worker. Searching by company name (rather than first/last) is something he needed, that the built-in dialer can't do. At a cursory glance, there looked to be a lot of neat options in there. Might download a trial myself...

    Takephone has many advantages which I will not mentione. In addition to the simple lookup and flexibility to search within words etc., for me the most important one is possibly the least used by many others - the ability to automatically dial a a calling card sequence (done within the application) whenever I call a number beginning with a certain area code. This saves me a fortune. With the Treo, you must manually set up each phone number and use one of the one button favorites - very limiting and tremendously time consuming.

    Yes, this same topic has been written about many previous times before. For me, it would be pretty much impossible to only have 5 must-have apps. It would be more like top 25 out of 100!!

    In any case, here's my 5:

    Chatter: Must have instant emails...can't live without it nowadays

    VolumeCare: Must be able to hear the caller at a noisy bar while sipping a brewsky

    Instant Messaging: Must be able to notify the wife asap to get dinner tonight! :-))

    Phone: Must be able to call the wife asap to get dinner if she doesn't respond to my IM !

    Web: Must be able to post my worthless .02 cents of replies to TreoCentral's forum! Hyuck, hyuck!

    By the way, do the built-in apps of Phone and Web count, or can I list 2 more?
    Sprint 755p, 700p, 650 - I am not a geek! Really!

    I like these threads because invariably I find a key app that I just never knew anything about previously.

    Directory Assistance is an example of this. Does someone have a link where I can get this?

    Thanks in advance!


    OK, never mind I found it already.

    What a great little app!

    Oh, and my five:

    Docs To Go, Chess Tiger, Card Reader, ZLauncher, Resco Backup

    If the hacks/mods count I would likely have listed or strongly considered PalmRevolt and Fontsmoother.
