View Full Version : Your Top 5 Essential UX App's
11-27-2003, 01:54 AM
What are your top 5 essential add-on applications or utilities you would recommended for the UX?
I'm new to the forum and after reading many of the posts, I have loaded two app's mentioned frequently. First was Pocket Tunes which is a big improvement on the Clie Audio Player. The second was Fonts4UX, which has made my screen fonts much easier to read.
It would be interesting for me and others to review a thread of posts with everyones recommendations. When you list an application, please explain why it enhanced or improved your UX operating experience.
In no particular order:
Bluetooth Toggle - so I don't have to
OKey - Close the UX to switch off
Energy Dimmer - Allows profiles for backlight brightness
WordComplete - Because Graffiti 2 sucks and I need all the help I can get
TuSSH - Widescreen access to my *nix boxes from anywhere in the world.

4 Pocket Tunes
There's a couple more I can't do without - 5 isn't enough :)
iSilo - for reading my ebooks. This is probably the app I use most
Timecopy - syncs the clié time with the PC every hotsync. If your PC is NTP sync'ed then your clié time is always 100% accurate.

Thanks for the great feedback. I'll give some of these apps a try this weekend. Dannn, thanks for posting your primary use for the UX, it has a direct relation to you top 5 add-on apps.
My UX use is multi-purpose for entertainment and organization as Sony puts on the label. I'm a road warrior and the UX keeps me organized and entertained while on the road. On long flights with a set of noise canceling headphones I listen to music or digital books. When I can afford to buy a larger MS, I could watch movies. In restaurants and coffee shops I can surf the net. Obviously I have all the organizer functions for my work, but with the UX keyboard I can easily type short notes and memos.

DALauncher (+ cursorDA +BDAL)

iSilo (all of my ebooks / manuals / stuff)
PalmReader (all of the commercial ebooks I read)
NetFront (I leave my laptop at work most nights, it's so good!)
VeriChat (For IM'ing in meetings at work and at home while watching bad movies.)
Good responses from everybody else, too --- many of the others are on my Clie, paid for, and close to top-five status.

5 really isn't enough 'cuz there is so much great stuff out there! I learn ALOT from this forum and the regulars who post here - I'm gonna surf along and check out some of the apps listed above!

Oh, and one little app that has been with me in my past palms and my UX50: Static Chicken

KeyQuick - now I don't need to use the stylus hardly ever and I love the sidekick menu. I've got keyboard equivalents set up for most functions.
ZLauncher - great launcher, lets you move apps to memory card
HandyShopper - not UX-specific, but this is a fantastic Palm app and does lots more than just shopping lists. And it's free too!
KeyRing - an open-source free password manager that stored them encrypted. Because what's a Personal Data Assistant without Personal Data?
Plucker/JPluck. It supports the widescreen now, and it a great way to catch up on news or comics or whatever when otherwise disconnected. (Plucker grabs and converts web pages for the Palm. I use it for BBC, NYTimes, local papers, comics, etc.)
Honorable mention: UXFonts, which make the others more usable.

TechnoCat, teach me,
how do you convert BBC, NYTimes and comics?
Do you only input the address in JPluck ?
11-29-2003, 11:54 AM
BBC has a PDA section that JPluck can convert directly.
NYTimes you have to register (free), log into with Mozilla and then copy your cookies file somewhere that JPluck can find it and point JPluck at it, using the NYTimes entry in the JPluck showcase. (Or, in my case, I used the one I'd written previously, but I compared them a bit ago and the showcase one is better for most purposes.)
There are several sites that convert comics to simplified pages that JPluck can then grab and convert. Two are:
Then I sync and they're automatically available in Plucker on the Palm.

Is there a UX version of ZLauncher?
11-29-2003, 02:23 PM
The version from early September worked well on the UX but didn't always redraw the buttons properly. They've fixed that recently and now it's very UX-friendly.
11-29-2003, 08:39 PM
Cool. Thanks for the info! I'll check it out. It looks like a great app.

Do you know of a good tutorial for KeyQuick?
11-30-2003, 09:55 AM
This is not a tutorial, but I found this thread very helpful for KeyQuick.
Hope it helps you as well.
11-30-2003, 12:16 PM
I haven't seen a good tutorial for KeyQuick. The documentation is pretty cryptic. And unfortunately I can't give you any reliable tips until my UX comes back from Sony repair, where it's been for ten days for a WiFi fix.
11-30-2003, 01:25 PM
I'm a new and proud owner of a ux50. (4 days now) I found this thread to be very helful. Programs I've installed so far are:
0key To turn it off when I close it.
Fonts4ux Helps with some programs
MobiPocket eBook reader
MobileTS Terminal Services Client
PalmVNC Remote Control
BackupMan Hope I never need it!
This machine is incredible. The Mobile ts lets me control my laptop apps, The PalmVNC lets me control the ones that will not work with ts.
Now, if I could find a program that will monitor my cell using bt to log all of my calls. Any suggestions?
