Favorite Palm applications?

I just upgraded to a Tungsten E after three or so years with an m100. I'm loving the speed and the new features, so I figured I'd see what apps everybody considers indispensable, whether retail or freeware? I'd love to load it up with great stuff and I'm curious what everybody's using these days.

What say you all?

My most used apps are (not counting the built in apps):

Palm Reader Pro - I read all of my books on my Clie
Mobile DB - Keeping track of my stuff
Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide- $20, but I find I refer to it all the time.
Splash Money - Keeping track of my checkbook
Splash ID- All my passwords and web logins
Zlauncher - to use my own backgrounds and themes for my launcher
Wordsmith - editing Word documents
Worldmate Pro - Time and Weather updates.

MiddleCaps Hack. No Palm user should be without this.
Bejeweled (built into the ROM in my Sony Clie). My high score is 479,000.
Vexed. Another great game.
MobileDB. App comes with several useful databases.
DiddleBug. For freehand sketch & alarm.
Noah Lite. Free dictionary.
Planetarium. Tells you what star is where, customized to location and time.

Thanks, guys. I'll have to take a look for some of the freeware. I grabbed a couple of groovy games from palmgear last night, but I'll keep my eye out for some of these others.

Do you know how to fix an "invalid password" error on AvantGo (I have it on my Compaq Ipaq (which is where the error comes from) ) when youre using the PocketLJ? I cant figure out how come I keep getting that message, when I know the password is correct. Ive tried deleting, recreating and resync'n and still I get the same error.

I took $175 for the Palm and all my accessories.

Car charger that doubles as a sync cable.
Home charger
2 cases
extra stylus (pack of 3)

And all the stuff that came with it....of course.


They're going for $175 to $200 on eBay and mines only a year old.

Sold it to a friend...so I cut her a bit of a deal

I paid $299 for it 14 months ago so I believe I got my money's worth.

Got the iPaq H5555 for $547 and bought some accessories for another $75. Thats new...not refurbished. I'll have to keep this one for a bit longer to make it pay off.

I did take the Secure Digital card 64mb, out of my Palm. Going to use it in my laptop and now iPaq.


Can't wait to get my hands on this little thing

Too add a few.

Ultrasoft Money. Great check book app as it synchs with microsoft money. No exporting and converting files. Just do your hot synch, and both your money file and the file on the PDA are brought up to date.

PDabs,

Good work out log, the windows counterpart seems pretty useless though

Neither of these apps are free, but they both offer fully function month or so demo periods so you can try them out.
