Need a little help. I searched the forum and Blackberry help but can't find the answer.

Is there a diffferent 'home' page I can use? I was hoping one that would display my schedule for the day, number of emails or VM or missed calls. Maybe the to do list. I would assume this would be available, but I can't seem to find anything.

TIA,
Steve

try searching for bbtoday in the forums. This has all of the things you are looking for. Also Pocketday, but it isn't free like bbtoday. A good place to start is Mark's Killer software thread.

Well, there's BBToday for free...
Download BBLight/BBWeather/BBToday/BBReply binaries (GPL source code included!)
or PocketDay Professional which available for $19.95 on Handango...
PocketDay Professional Released !

How much did it cost you Dawg, and why did you pay for it instead of going with the free bbToday -- I know you're very tight with your money on software.

because of of the options it offers it offers everything I can get out of the free apps plus world time, currency converte,r rss feeds, reply too, able too collapse sections multiple weather locations has so much to offer i just couldnt resist this one. If a program is valuable to me like none other i will purchase it. They also offer unlimited use for the 30 day trial which is why i recommend them as well. the excellent support mark gives as well

Dawg hit the nail on the head. I've been using Pocket Day since the first day I got my 7230. It's a great on-stop app to do a lot of quick things on your BB.

The new PD Pro with the RSS feeds, currency converter and world time is really slick. One program gives you

Missed Calls
E-mails
Appointments
Tasks
News, Weather, Sports, Traffic etc.
Stocks
$ converter
World clocks
...and more

$20 - FREE UPGRADES and incredible support and innovation based on feedback from the developer.

Best app for the money available for the BB.

$20 for the limited version though. If you purchased it a few weeks ago, then I'm sure I'd be smiling too...

Wow, good catch. I purchased months ago. It's still well worth $30.
