As you can tell, I'm a newbie that just got my BB over the weekend. Have set it up and am definitely a convert - had Palms for YEARS (like, since the beginning of the Palm Pilot that takes 2 AA batts!) and the lastest Treo 650 (as popular as it is) is a horrible piece of hardware! Too bad to Palm, well done BB.
Couple of items I need to 'customise' my BB for optimal use that I may need help from you guys. 2 pieces of software that (actually 3, but will describe the 3rd one below - found out that you can't get it for BB) I found absolutely useful on my Palm(s).
1. A world clock with the world map showing the light (day) and dark (night) areas. Not absolutely necessary if I can't get this same 'map' thing (which is more a feature than anything) for BB - but can someone recommend a 'good' application for under $10?
2. A London Tube map and route planner. Seemed to have 'found' a route planner - but a map will be useful. Again, anything under $10 will be great.
3. Had a Palm OS program that controlled the LED - e.g. kept it 'Orange' when I missed a phone call etc. Had a poke around the internet and found that the BB's LED is not subject to such software control. So, unless anyone has found out otherwise, I've given up on this.
