    I'm really hoping for widgets that can be shown on the homescreen (weather, appointments, etc). It would be just a tad tedious to open my calendar just to see upcoming appointments or open up a weather app to check it for 2 seconds.

    SPB makes a nice app for WM that does this and other things. Hopefully we will see something similar for the Pre.

    I'd love to see a calendar app like DateBk6 that would allow me to attach icons to my appointments that would show up in the month view. It makes the month view SO much more useful.

    I'd love to have a good shopping program as I do a lot of buying for my company. My favorite shopping program is Handy Shopper for Palm OS & WinMo. The developer only updates the WinMo version but is totally open to others developing apps from his source code (see copy from the yahoo group below). So any enterprising individuals out there can use his app as a model and make a wonderfully successful app for the Pre!

    Barring that, I'd pay for a good shopping app. I use it not only for shopping, but for all kinds of other things like... music I'd like to check out, supply lists for camping, jotting down gift ideas, etc... It helps me where my memory lacks!

    Thanks Greg. :-) I am flattered that so many folks find this
    software indispensable and ask for it to be ported to so many
    devices. Unfortunately, flattery will indeed get you nowhere (with
    me). As Greg says, I released full source code for reading/writing
    HandyShopper databases, so now the only thing stopping other people
    from writing versions of HandyShopper for other devices is the usual
    stuff (interest, skill, etc).

    Indeed, on all counts. The source code is released in the Public
    Domain, even. No strings attached.

    Don't get me wrong, they have their place... but honestly, how many $0.99 apps are REALLY used on a daily basis? I think it's USUALLY an indication in a lack of quality. (Although there are some impressive cheap apps, it's not the norm.)
    I'm excited to get the Pre, but as a Palm user of 6 years, I'm a little concerned about the App Catalog looking at the history of PalmOS applications in regards to pricing.

    There are scores of high quality, useful apps & games in the $0.99 - 2.99 price range that I use frequently on my iPod touch (Tweetie, for example). Contrast that with many of the apps on for PalmOS -- PocketTunes Deluxe, an Mp3 player, which I bought years ago for my Palm TX, is $37.95! Many other productivity apps, utilities & games are 25 dollars and up. In the era of Apple's App store, with tons of affordably-priced apps, that's just ridiculous. I really hope the Pre's App catalog is going to host competitively-priced apps, given that Palm developers are used to charging a premium for their software. Clearly that has to happen if the Pre is going to compete with the iPhone -- it's all about the software.

    would love dropbox... with a specific "mobile sync" folder so I don't fill my palm pre w/ crap.

    alternatively, someone figure out a way to get filesharing working... so the palm can act as a server, or a client fetching data. I HATE having to use the microUSB port because I feel I'll break it.
