    I recently got a Treo 650 and already have found areas where there could be improvements and that I wish were incorporated into the unit.

    1. It would be great if a program could be written, (such as easylaunch which unfortunately is a hack), which would allow for programing any of the buttons, either hardware or key board - at least some, to launch any applications that could be selected from a list. If necessary, pressing a combination of buttons and/or long or short pressing of buttons could be used to differentiate between button presses.

    2. An application that would allow for renaming of applications that have weird names that are hard to remember what they are for. I don't know how many times I have loaded onto my pda, applications that have names I don't recognize and would like to change them to something I can remember. I'm surprised that Palm has not incorporated something into the palm OS to do this already. They have category renaming which is nice, but what about renaming applications to something I can remember?

    3. One of the first things I noticed was that the Keyguard pop up message that pops up when the Treo 650 is turned on is too short!!!! I would like to make it a few seconds longer. So I went to Pref. and, like I figured there was no place to adjust the time delay of this pop up screen.

    How hard would it have been for Palm developers to incorporate these option into their OS? These are just a few examples of things that have been overlooked by Palm developers.

    If anyone knows of any applications or Hacks that will work on Palm OS V. 5, that will do these things, I would appreciate knowing about them.

    A search will give you plenty of results.

    In regard to #2, ZLauncher can rename apps. I have used that feature plenty.

    Welcome to the boards. Along with the reccomendation you search before you post (we can get quite ticky about the here) I'd like to recommend a few apps I really like.

    Profiles: This FOR SURE should have been built into the device. This little free app allows you the ability to *gasp* set up profiles on your 650 like it's a normal phone. It also provides a pop up when you turn on the screen that tells the time, date, andcurrently selected profile. This integrates right into the prefs menu, I love it.

    TCPMP: Core Media Player, another great free app, I never use real player because this plays AAC files (iPod sees most of the music action though). It also make putting movies on the Treo a breeze.

    Directory Assist: Never called 411 again (Free)

    FileZ: Once again a free app. provides much needed ability to manage files and beam files indiscriminately.

    Chatter: You gotta pay for this one, but if you like email and you want it NOW (black berry style) then this is the coolest thing going IMO.

    Volume care: Jeff Gibson has really made VC something to have in the last two weeks. It makes the volume levels go pretty much as loud as you could ask. For $9 it feels free after you realize how much you hated having to mash the little 650 ear "bump" in your head to understand callers.

    Anyway, I don't have time to dig up the links right now, but PM me and I'll tell you where to get them (or try a search , most of these PRC's are floating around the boards)

    Good luck!
