    I feel so silly, having 6301k of my BVD's memory left. I REALLY want to bring it down to somewhere in the 4's or 5's, so that I can respect myself in buying the Deluxe, and so that I can have plenty of good programs on there. So, I am asking what some of your best games, utilities, etc are. Please don't post things that others have already posted. Thanks.

    PS-Don't list software that sucks. Also don't list software that is preloaded or part of the original palm games pack (ie-Mail, or MineHunt, etc.)
    -Furthermore, reccomending some of your favorite eBooks wouldn't hurt.

    I'm sure this has been posted before... but having 2 different Bible translations would take care of 3.6 Megs!

    Avantgo will surely take care of at least 2 more Megs, depending on how many channels and link depth you've set.

    And Image Viewer III will use up 1-2 Megs for various maps, or pictures of loved ones that you may want to have on your Visor. Beats carrying around wallet photos!

    If you're into medical stuff, ePocrates takes up 744K for you to have a pretty comprehensive listing of pharmaceutical drugs, doses, side effects etc.

    The last time I looked I have only 384K free on my Visor!

    I have about 3 meg left

    i've got diddle(34k), dopewars(25k) must have game, iSilo(2200k) on here I have about 15 linux how-to's for reading while I'm working on a system, a couple shakespeare plays, a bunch of short stories, and a book about palm programming which takes up about 500k. It's really nice to have them on the palm so that I can read anywhere... stuck in traffic, waiting in line, during tv commercial breaks, etc... Then there's the java KVM(166k), lode runner(122k), king james bible about 1.2 megs (yeah yeah, common, I know). I have sim city that takes up about 225k which is great, and if you like chess, you *must* get pocket chess which is supurb. Then there's pocket C for writing programs and playing with ideas on the run. Still trying to decide how to use my final 3meg...

    I like HanDbase from There are many free user-developed databases in their "gallery" that you can download to help chew-up your available memory:

    - acronyms db
    - area codes
    - password manager
    - checkbook register
    - wine lists
    - sports team schedules
    - fantasy football team tracker
    - work-out logs
    - etc, etc.

    There are hundreds of other apps. all over the web. HanDbase will cost you about $20, but worth it.

    i'm a theater artist and i've downloaded the complete works of shakespeare (individually from memoware) and read them using smartdoc, with which i can also edit them to create working scripts, etc.. and i've got the thesaurus, which spells and gives synonyms - i'd get a dictionary too, but apparently that would be too much memory and i'm waitting for landware's merriam webster springboard. ive also got tinysheet and anyexpense to take care of my personal clients, and as soon as avantgo happens for the mac, i'll be there. a coupla hacks and games, blah blah blah. right now i'm about half full, and i'm looking for more.


    by the by - i got everything from palmgear

    StarPilot: draws a picture of the sky where you live and you can click on star and it gives you all the neat info: how far, name, constellation. Great for nights out on the patio stargazing. It also comes with MoonInfo, Planets, and Sol!II which give you more info at what you're looking at in the sky!

    Catagory: Productive

    Diddle: etch a sketch with extras ...all on your visor!

    the versions you download will not allow you to perform certain change the date so you can see what the sky will look like tomorrow...otherwise it's fully operational for current time.
    It comes with J-Moons (info on jupiter's moons) and Messier (galaxy finder) but i'm not a master astronomer so i saved some memory and didn't install them.

    What I have on my visor:

    1. avantgo -- downloadable web content; my channels:
    2. beambox -- way to beam material that is not normally beamable (e.g., hacks)
    3. diddlebug -- sketching and reminder program
    4. hackmaster -- way to get around some Palm OS limitations. Hacks
    a. SwitchHack -- nice way to switch between programs quickly
    b. SelectHack -- great way to select text (click, double-click, triple-click)
    c. MiddleCapsHack -- GREAT way to capitalize
    d. AppHack -- use 2 sequentual button presses to load any of 24 programs.
    5. ir-pong -- infra-red pong
    6. kalk -- a nice, simple RPN calculator
    7. listmaker -- outlining/to-do program (great for my needs, but I do wish it
    had a desktop text<-->list converter )
    8. mathpad -- an equation solver that is set up like memo-pad
    9. moon info! -- tons of information about the moon
    10. pocketC -- C complier on the visor
    11. RPN -- expandable RPN calculator

    12. Sol! II -- tons of information about the sun
    13. StarPilot -- the night sky on your visor
    14. ThinkDB -- very slick database program

    I still haven't found a suitable programmable, reverse polish notation,
    calculator that does graphing.
