treo650-bbvfs.jpgMy Treo 650 recently had a meltdown. Someone tried to call me and I couldn’t answer the call (buttons didn’t work) then it hung on the inbound call screen. After a soft reset it went into a boot loop and needed a hard reset to bring it back. After wiping all my data and apps I decided to selectively re-install just my favorites.
So, following is my list of 10 must-have applications for the palmOne Treo 650:
Standalone – QuickNews, an excellent RSS client loaded with features.
Intellisync – VeriChat, the best IM client for the Treo.
Tiny Stocks - Stock Manager – Keep tabs on your portfolio.
Tiny Stocks - Highway Manager – With gas prices sky high, track your fuel efficiency.
Blue Nomad – BackupBuddyVFS – This one isn’t optional, it saved my bacon this week.
ShSh software – TAKEphONE – Makes finding and calling contacts incredibly easy.
ShSh software – 2day – “Today” type application – shows all your calendar and tasks.
ShSh software – 4cast – Displays forecast for the next 5 days.
Electric Pocket – Ringo Pro – Allows you to use MP3 ringtones with the Treo.
Palmary Soft – PalmaryClock Wireless Edition
Concrete Software – Aces Texas Hold’em – No Limit – The best Texas Hold’em poker game available.
Ok, it’s actually 11. Shoot me…
Hard restting your Treo, although disruptive, is actually a good thing – provided you have a good backup. It purges a lot of unused and corrupt files clogging your memory and it forces you to re-evaluates what software that you really need on your device.
