Default First time poster - What's your 'must have' app?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi fellas - first a brief intro as this is my first post. My iPaq5555 is on e-bay and will sell in under 2 days as the reserve has already been met. While I will be a little sad to see it go, I am very excited about obtaining my 7520 (been a nextel user for years & very happy) next week.

I've been searching hi & low and trying to determine what apps to get so I can fully enjoy my BB time. My initial thoughts are:

BBlight
Berry411
Verichat
Pocketday (why isn't this freeware?)

So I ask, what are the apps you use the most & can't live without? Don't forget about the games, either! ;)

VeriChat -- My favourite 3rd party app.
MobileSSH -- My other favourite. I've got a Linux box to access, as well as for relay service.
Berry411 -- Free 411 utility (though I'm considering upgrading to Handmark Express from http://www.handmark.com ....)
PDTool - Utility to change the ReplyTo: in emails.

I think Pocket Day isn't freeware because the guy isn't stupid.

Pocket Day.

I didn't see a link to

in either of the threads you mentioned.

Am I going blind?

Thanks,

Different people have referred it to PTReply, PDTool, PDUtil .. all the same thing. Can be a bit confusing. Sorry about that! It's already in one of the two of the above links.

The official name, I think is, PDUtil.

411 was my favorite, but I coughed up the cash and pocketday rules!!

New features and updates weekly, that's why it's not free.. but it's worth more than I paid, 4 sure!!!

I liked the push weather, but pocketday took over...
