    Just noticed that there's a sticky on PPC Recommended Applications, but where's the one for SmartPhones???

    1) IM+ (www.shapeservices.com) - This is the BEST IM application you can buy for the smartphone...much more robust than Agile IMO.

    2) 1-Homedit (www.omegaone.com/home.htm) - A good home screen editor

    3) Battery Pack Pro (www.omegaone.com/home.htm) - Excellent program that tracks your battery usage, memory, etc.

    4) MSFT Voice Command - Simply the ONLY solution that compares to the WM2003 version that came with the Motorola MPX series phone

    5) Don't Forget - The best, FREE reminder program that reminds you of missed appointments, SMS and calls. It doesn't remind you of voicemails left however.

    6) Call Filter - This FREE application can forward unwanted calls to your voicemail or simply reject them altogether.

    7) Fizz Bill Now - Another FREE application that allows you to split a meal between several parties, along with percentage tip, etc.

    8) Omapclock - FREE program that overclocks your Tornado-based smartphone.

    9) SmartTweaker - Allows you to tweak your smartphone

    10) TCPMP - The best FREE movie player in the market

    11) Jetware Mobile - This complements MSFT Voice Command by allowing you to use your bluetooth headset or carkit

    Here are a few more:

    1) GA Playlist Manager - A FREE program that allows you to create playlists on-the-fly from existing tracks on your phone

    2) Windows Live Search (Beta) - Way better program than Virtual Earth Mobile IMO

    3) Convert It - A FREE program that converts currencies and tables of measure

    FlexWallet for keeping secure data.
    Virtual Pool - the only game I play on my Smartphone.

    I only have two "Must have" applications, and I use them both on a daily basis on my HP iPAQ 6515.

    1. Microsoft Voice Command
    2. TomTom 5 GPS Navigation

    Um, I didn't know the iPAQ was a smartphone...isn't that a PDA?

    Technically yes, but I don't use it as a PDA, and since we are discussing Windows Mobile software, and the iPAQ is a Windows Mobile device, those are the applications I use.

    Leave it to Microsoft to have two Windows Mobile Platforms: Pocket PC & Smartphone

    Of course, applications that were written for Windows Mobile Pocket PC will not work with Windows Mobile Smartphone and vice-versa.

    What exactly is Sprite Backup? I see it preinstalled on my Tilt, but I have no idea what it is for. I guess I'm kinda old school and to me sprites are computer animated objects. I did a lot of work with making sprites on my Commodore 64 when I was a kid.

    It basicly backs up "ALL" of your PPC info. SPB Back up is a simular product.

    Sprite Backup - $29.95

    sprite backup lite is the same thing without the desktop component and remote backup I believe. I went with the lite version. I have used it to restore my device twice so far with no problems.
