    Spb Diary vs. Pocket Breeze

    I've got both 15 day trials installed on my phone and both seem to have some strengths and some weaknesses. Can people share their feelings about which today plugin they think people should go with? Please correct me if I am mistaken about any pro or con. Also does anyone know of another today plugin that is better than both?

    Spd Diary
    1. Pro: Much better email preview window. But it may have some issues with locking at retrieval on occasion.
    2. Pro: Shows one email account at a time which I think is desirable. Having all the colapsed ones on the page at the same time seems cluttered to me.
    3. Con: Uses SPB pocket plus for skins?
    4. Sort of Pro: They have a small collection of nice icons that you can associate with categories.
    5. Pro: has a nicer default look (in my opinion).
    6. Pro: can integrate with SPB finance which is a great product.

    Pocket Breeze
    1. Pro: Seems to have many skins on the market.
    2. Con: email preview is a mess when there is more than one reply since they don't extract out mime headers.
    3. Pro: Allows you to add custom tabs.
    4. Pro: seems to be more reliable retrieving email even when it is installed on the storage card.
    5. Pro: lets you create named filter sets for schedules and tasks.

    I voted PB because it is skinnable, offers more tabs on the today screen, and is more modifiable. I like to keep a certain look on the today page, and PB allows that. PB also integrates with Pocket Informant (and Agenda Fusion as well?) But as always, both products are good and functional.

    In what way does PB integrate with PI that SPB doesn't? Thanks

    I think Diary does too, but was just highlighting that PB does.
