Current apps are in the first tier. Removed, pending, or crashing apps are in second tier. Italics means it's commercial or paid, Bold means the app is/was free, nothing means it came with the Treo 600 or I have no clue.
- Audible - Listen to "books on tape". My friends say I should just get an iPod, I say "so where's my Birthday present?"
- Backgammon - free with firmware update. Never understood this game.
- Bejeweled - leftover from my Palm m130 days, I paid, well worth it.
- Blocks - free tetris program
- Crystal Quest - you know you want this one...
- Dice Man - gives virtual 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20, & 100-sided dice.
- Klondike - another solitaire games from my m130 days.
- Lines - Somehow I got this for free.
- Memorix - Fantastic memory game, with plenty of skins!
- MineHunt - found on an old install CD.
- Ptunes - MP3 player, selected as my freebee upon registration. Bought the headphone converter plug and a big SD card for tunes.
- Puzzle - found on an old install CD.
- Reader - came with the Franklin Covey CD, the 7 habits book, etc.
- Reversix - found on an old install CD. Othello Game.
- Shuffle - not sure where this came from.
- Sol Free - found on an old install CD. Solitaire.
- Tie Master - reminder for several tie knots.
- Bombel - no sound, so what good is popping the bubblewrap?
- Open Chess - buggy on my palm, no documentation, and I didn't have time to play archeologist. An open source project: very cool.
- Skinner - Changes the default buttons for the Phone app to something more Mac-like. Cool. Might buy it later.
- DiddleBug - might replace the missing notepad app.
- Draw me - need something to replace the missing notepad, this isn't it. But it was free. Not to be confused with Draw Me.
- Kinoma - I show small training videos for my job, and can now show them on the spot. Very cool. I paid the $30US for the Producer media converter.
- mmPlayer - still checking it out. Got DVDs into the Treo with directions found here.
- Movie Rec - Using the Treo to record movies with sound is great. Still waiting for a Mac GUI converter that does sound.
- Pickem - Photo replacement program that tweaks the blue channel by pressing 'S', and does a software 2x zoom by pressing 'Z'. Clear the split screen by pressing 'S' after a zoom. Be sure to get the patched file.
- Pictures - native photo managment program.
- Qset (direct download link: right click, save as, and don't append) - makes the pictures bigger and better quality. Most of my stuff goes through the laptop, not Sprint Vision thanks to the SD card, so size is less important than quality.
- Sketcher - No manual here, evaluating as a notepad replacement. Allows color and different sized lines.
- Splash Photo - another carry over from the m130. Paid for it to have my 'wallet pics' and some job related training pics always with me. I have version 3, might update to 4.
- Treo Shutter - uses the volume keys to take the pic, useful for self portraits.
- Viewer III - old free version is not compatible with Palm OS 5. Graphic Converter will save in FireViewer format.
- Adobe Reader - I still can't make this one useful.
- Calc - native calc program. Rarely used but nice after a long day and I get lazy.
- Calendar - native contact manager. Thank goodness for iSync!
- DayNotez - Natara has a great product, and with the Sprint 1.20 firmware I can record voice memos into a note. No Mac desktop app (frown), but they have an export utility.
- Documents - supposedly free with the Treo, but Sprint doesn't include it.
- File Locator - ???
- iNoah - Why carry a dictionary when you have a web-enabled phone? I got the lite version.
- Key Info - left over from my Franklin Covey install; keeps SSNs, credit card info, frequent flyer numbers with me and secure.
- Life Balance - I paid a few years ago, but it doesn't get much use. I guess that means I'm unbalanced.
- Mail - native pop mail program. Set to read all my mailboxes. Cool.
- Memopad - PalmOS standard text reader. Nice program.
- Phone - native phone app. Fairly smart and bug free. Crashes when changing time zones, might be from loading a patched version for better number keys.
- SiEd - Text editor that I use to write & edit web pages from the handheld.
- SMS - native text messaging. A cool app.
- SocSurvey - Develop portable surveys, tests, and checklists. With statistical subroutines.
- SoundRec - records sound, lets you export sound files.
- Splash ID - supposedly free with the Treo, but Sprint doesn't include it.
- Splash Shopper - m130 carry over. Paid to have packing and shopping checklists along for the ride.
- To do list - native app, not used much because I use a Franklin-Covey paper planner. Maybe someday, but iCal to-do's are still less than intuitive.
- Today - Mapped to my right-hand screen button, and it has a 5-9 app graphical launcher, depending on how you set it up. Nice.
- Web - the native Blazer browser. I remember Netscape 1.5, AOL 1.0, text browsers, and with all that's happend since then, this app works great.
- Date Mate - track birthdays etc. You can do this from the regular datebook with recurring appointments. This program can post reminders a few days in advance. New Zodiac feature is weird.
- FineType - font manager that came/works with WordSmith.
- Happy Days - Anniversary & birthday tracking software. Removed because it makes the "Find More" function crash.
- eReader - nice but a distraction. Some great free book sites out there. Pro features disabled after 15 days.
- Word Smith - still evaluating (also tried on m130 two years ago).
- ChemTable - Periodic Table of elements, in color. Comes in handy.
- Converter - m130 standard. Free and it converts shoe sizes. And other things.
- Electrist - Reference and conversion for electricians
- TrueTerm - Languge translator. I really have no idea where I got this, but it is hella useful.
- Card Export - makes the SD card appear on the desktop as a mass storage device with the phone on a sync cable. The site says Windows but it works on MacOS X 10.3 (and should work with MacOS 8.6 and above with USB mass storage drivers installed). Very cool.
- Card Info - Helps see what's on SD cards, not sure if this is native or a m130 carry over.
- CardBkup - does what in says. I might buy it for the scheduled backup capability. Tried to do a restore but it crashed the Treo.
- EzFTP - lets me download web pages for editing in SiEd, then upload the changes.
- FileZ - Must have for every Palm user. Really. Just load it.
- HandZipper - Unzip those zip files.
- HotSync - native syncing app, works great with iSync.
- KeyCaps600 - Hold for caps, double click for special characters. Great blackberry keyboard functionality.
- Keyguard Time - Press the phone app to flash the time (digital, analog, or both) battery level & date.
- Obfuscate - hide ROM programs such as Welcome, Tutorial, and GetBC.
- Prefs - nice job with all the smart phone extra settings.
- Security - Locking mechanism, works as advertised.
- Sounds - set it and forget it.
- Treo Allegro - Back on after troubleshooting some crashes. Orange LED for SMS, rapid green for Voice Mail. Day & night modes for the backlight, with an autodim feature.
- Treo Helper - back on, seems to be playing nice again.
- WModem - Nice. I paid. Be sure to get the Beta that works better with OS X 10.3.5.
- After Sync - comes with the Launcher X download. Worked OK most of the time.
- Camera test - geekware that lets you hack camera settings (Remember the definition of hack). Needs a manual. Broke the internal camera settings, go to Camera Preferences menu and delete all the hexi strings.
- Clean U - clean uninstaller. Might be worth buying for the group removal of 'a68' files.
- Lightwav - too much for me to work on right now. Maybe after this semester's over.
- Newpen - Graffiti on the screen. Buggy but worked better than
- Graffiti Anywhere - free is good but working is better. Will check this again later.
- Sandman - blanks the screen to save juice on a call (should be standard option with the phone). Removed because you launch it from a hardware button and mine are all spoken for. The link goes to the developer's page, scroll down for the app, then right click and save as.
- Profeo600 Lite - control your backlight, wireless mode, key lights, volume, etc based on time of day. Way too many options. Removed because my schedule is so unpredictable, and the radio or screen was off when I needed it, the sound was off when I wanted it, etc. Great app if you have a normal life.
- STOIC - (STay On In Cradle), removed because another app was interfering.
- BestBuy - compare unit prices of two items. Cool.
- City Time - displays your time zone and 4 others, a cool world map with moving terminator overlay and selectable twilight transition zone.
- DirAssist - look up driving directions. Sprint Vision is fantastic. Don't spell Bryan like Brian.
- Distance - get straight line Great Circle distances between 2 Lat/Longs.
- Flash Boom - Click Flash when you see lightning, click Boom when you hear thunder, see how far away the strike hit. Simple but effective.
- Flight Status - look up where planes are in their flight, in real time from the web.
- Fuel Log - Tracks KPG and graphs it. m130 carryover, export feature is great for roadtrips.
- Location - holds Lat/Long info for major cities and works with Moon Info!
- Moon Info! - see percent lunation, moon rise & set, and sun rise & set info for any location or date. I paid, great app.
- Quick Tip - Figure out tips to the penny. Normally I just guess though.
- Sky Chart - track the stars. A dying skill. Just discovered 5-way nav support.
- Tracker - I have historical storms loaded. Nothing active for now...
- Weather Manager - still evaluating. I can get the info off the web, but this will be good for traveling to different cities.
- TZ-GPS - I would really love to get GPS working on this thing.
- Headphone adapter - $5 lets the phone serve as my MP3 player.
- Charging cradle - better than having to dig under my desk for the charger every day.
- USB sync-n-charge cable - This cable charges, syncs, lets the phone act as a wireless modem & SD card reader. Best $19 I ever spent on a cable. Oops! Lost the cable from a pocket going through SEATAC. Ordered a USB sync-n-charge cable replacement from TreoCentral.
- Leather case - the belt clip is geeky, but the case gives great protection.
- Screen protectors - they sound like a waste, but the screen can get scratched up real fast in the real world.
- 128mb SD card - I got the 128mb for now. The 512's are too expensive for me and a 256 will hold 4+ albums. You can get 2 of the 256's for less than 1 of the 512's.
- Stylus Replacement - Ordered from Treo Central.
