    Great question!!!

    For starters email and web applications are key in addition to minor MS Office work. After that would be entertainment such as music movies ect when traveling. I would also love to hear about other applications folks have found particularly interesting and/or indespensible. I guess I'm willing to experement to get the most utility out of the 650.

    There are many great applications. For email, you can start with the built in free cliet Versamail. It's nowhere near perfect, but for most folks it works for basic mail.

    For web, the built in client Blazer is "Ok", you might try Netfront, Thunderhawk, Eudora suite, even the beta Opera browser. the secret is to disable images (if that's not too important), and frequent pages designed for the small screen like the ones at Pdaportal.com, or Palmportal. And don't forget to pick up some FREE new ringtones at midicenter.com!

    Just be careful to make sure that whatever you add is compatible with the Treo 650 Palm OS. There is a link to a list at the top of this forum.
    I would load UnInstaller first to make it easier to cleanup any messes - and only load one app. at a time, give it a day or so to find problems, then try another.
    Have Fun!

    Netfront and Thunderhawk are not options for the Treo. One alternate browser is Xiino.

    Why would anyone mention WEB Browsers that don't work with the TREO 650? Is there any browser out there besides xiino that works with the TREO?

    That's really it. There used to be Reqwireless WebViewer, but it looks like that company has changed their focus and it's not available anymore. There is Eudora Web, but that's only a text web browser. Built-in Blazer is pretty good and has served my needs just fine.

    Well so far here are my experiences on the recommended apps:

    Love and will keep:
    Pocket Tunes - impressive application with streaming capability!
    Verichat - nice to be able to IM through my yahoo account and not have to pay for IM charges to cingular (you need to set it up right to do this)

    Tried but will not keep:
    Chattermail - this one would lock up on occasion and have trouble logging in at times - versamail works great so no real need
    Kmaps - could never quite get this to work even with attempts are reinstall to SD and internal memory. It also requires java loaded to work.

    Still need to try the movie apps and others.

    Thanks for the suggestions to date.

    Sorry, My pocket PC daze creeping in...(Thunderhawk and Netfront)
    There are browser alternatives that work on the Treo:
    #1
    Eudora, mentioned above is a free text only browser that is quite fast included in Eudora suite an email and browser program.
    #2
    Another option is WebPro.Results are mixed.
    #3
    Opera (not really officially for Treo, but works). Very fast and reders pages well.

    So. as you can see despite the typo brainfade, there ARE alternatives..

    Butler - A must have!!
    Ditto on Snappermail
    Radio Control - Free, turns phone off at night and on in the morning (or when ever)
    mVoice - for voice recording to SD card
    mRings - just for fun, plays full MP3s off card to ID callers
    mSafe - Ultimate security (almost - that is from non-super tech dudes, since there are programs that will generate numeric codes which unlock palms)

    I like EXpress from Handmark, but most people don't feel the need to pay for stuff they can access using the web browzer for free. Same for MobiTV. Costs money, does not always work great, but is really cool.

    My regularly used app list:

    CardKeeper (let's you know when the SD card has been removed)
    Directory Assistant (interface to YP.com for looking up numbers/addresses/people)
    FieldPlus (text hilighting/selection/more without the stylus)
    HolidayUSA (sets USA holidays up in your datebook)
    Mergic Ping (ping program)
    MetrO (mass transit info/schedule/routes from around the world)
    Minutes PLUS (track analyze your phone usage)
    MyCar (maintenance recording for automobiles)
    PalmVNC (platform independent remote system control software)
    Profiles (prefs profiles)
    SharkMsg (Send SMS message to the phone number of a call you are ignoring)
    Switch5 (switch to previously activated app)
    TreoHelper (more flexible than RadioControl with lots of extras)
    TreoNaviText (faster movement within text)

    I have tried to link to the homepage for each of these apps. Those that don't have links are homepages I could not find, but are readily available on any palm or treo software download site.

    I'm using Launcher X to manage my apps. I used Laucher III for my Palm 515 and this is the successor to that. Better than scrolling through a lot of icons.

    There is Voice Signal for the Treo if that's what you're used to.

    Others are VoiceDialIt, VoiceLauncher, and Voice Call.

    Thanks. I gave up my I730 yesterday and went back to the Treo. The I730 is great, but not a good phone. I'm going to stick with this until the 700w comes out.

    I appreciate your quick response!

    Sorry, but a search for this question produced no results. I haven't used the Treo since the 600 and I just switched to it for the I730. I was wondering if any of the 3rd party mail applications work with VZW WirelessSync? If not, do the attachments from the default mail application auto save to the memory card or do I need to change a setting that I'm not finding?

    Thanks in advance for your help on this.

    Tried SharkMessage and it is great. New version 1.3 is even better, and FREE.

    Was trying to use KMaps but it is very difficult to navigate and more frustrating than useful. Directory Assistant is the answer. It is great.
    Thx for the info.
