This is a fairly subjective listing, but for me I can't live without:

- AvantGo & my 12 channels to keep me up to date.
- ZLauncher (the launcher wars are over for me)
- Filez (does everything I need for free)
- SplashID (never forget a password or other personal data again)
- DiddleBug (love my sticky notes with alarms for free)
- AppIcon (for when the default Icon just won't do)
- Clock+ (bought it before MegaClock came out; was the best at the time and it does everything I need so no need to drop more $ for a Casio bitmap - although MegaClock sure looks pretty!) :-)

I really liked the demo of SuperNames 2.x but it is just so expensive for a contacts manager at $20 USD. Not sure what I'm going to do about this one. The default address book is not sufficient for my needs. Hmmm.

Let me also add a few more personal favourites that are not really clie functional necessities:

- Bible Reader (by AsaiSoft - love the dual version display)
- AudioPlayer (came included with my T665 - crank it up!)
- Euchre card game (from Seahorse Software - I majored in this game in college!) :-)
- P-Jongg game (I like it better than the astraware version)
- Billiards by Megasoft (stunningly realistic)
- Tangrams game by Smallware (geometric brain teaser)

The no. 1 App of all times for me is DateBk5. It never lets me down and can give a lot of information when used fully.
CardBackup (VERY essential!!)
Yaps (it´s´free!)
DocsToGo 5
Good old ZAP 2016!!

Just to name a few...

Only somewhat subjective. When you start seeing the same apps over and over again, it gains much more weight. In any event, this is usually a good starting place for new Clie owners, so list away! Oh, and include URLs if you can. Let's make it easy for others to find the apps that we can't live without.

Which apps really take the most advantage of the true power of these machines? I want programs that are full color and high res, and can NOT be ran on my old PalmV...I haven't found too many programs that are really tailored to the Clie-class of handhelds...

Thumbs up

My must-haves in alphabetical order:

AudioPlayer - A 128MB Memory Stick gives me more than enough MP3's to keep me happy.
*BugMe! - Great for quick notes and is currently the only easy-to-use HiRes+ drawing program.
*DateBK5 - Excellent Date Book replacement
Documents To Go - It comes with the Clie, and I prefere it over all the other office suites (I've tried 'em all!)
Hand Story - VFS-friendly all-in-one Web, DOC, Image, and memo viewer.
*Mapopolis - Fast, accurate, and full-featured.
Memo Safe - Hands-down, the easiest and secure Memo Pad replacement available. It is what Memo Pad should have been.
*MyBible - VFS-friendly, lightning fast searches, and multiple Bible versions make this excellent.
*WWCalc - Unofficial Weight Watcher's log and points calculator.

Khroma - Easily customize your colors.
LauncherX - Great VFS-friendly Launcher replacement.
MS Backup - Backup/restore to/from Memory Stick. Saved my butt countless times!
McPhling - I associate it with the Capture button, so it's always accessible!
PhotoSkin - Great for managing VG and Status skins on the NX

Bejeweled! - This is the reason I had to buy my wife her own Clie - She kept hogging mine!
*Billiards - Stunning graphics and great playability
*Klondike - Superb graphics and game play.
*Monopoly - Superb graphics and game play.

Programs with an '*' are run off of the Memory Stick using LauncherX's "Shortcut" feature.
Pilot 1000 > Palm iii > Palm Vx > Sony Clie NX70V > Tungsten T3 > Tungsten C > Palm Z22

It really helps if you put a little blurb about the function of the app along with the name

My apps:
AvantGo (Goes without saying, offline internet content on a handheld)
PalmReader Pro( For those Palm Digital Media E-Books)
PunchClock (I'm part time here at work, so I need somthing to keep track of my hours)
Agendus (Datebook replacement. I was a hard core DateBk5 User untill I saw this. I love the high res support)
TextPlus (Pops up a list of words as your writing grafitti. Really helps speed up your writing)
Launcher X (Mostly for its high res support and simple interface)

Well, my "must have" list is pretty short. Oh, I've got a lot of other programs that I like, but could do without if I had to. The "must haves", in order of must-haveness, are;

iSilo - I just couldn't live without this. I can read web pages and ebooks, of course. But, I have several textual databases on my PC that I update almost daily. I use iSilo to convert and copy them to my Clie. For example, I am the secretary of my bowling league and have to update the records every week as the teams bowl. iSiloX grabs any new information on my PC and transfers it to my Clie. That way, at any time, I can use my Clie to call up every score ever bowled in the league. I also use iSiloX to convert the contents of several inventories that I keep on my PC.

WWCalc - This is an food tracking program (unsanctioned by Weight Watchers). Without it, I would not have stuck to the program that my wife has gooten me involved in.

YiShow - A great launcher that has allowed me to customize the look and feel of my Clie. When other people show me their PDA, I cringe at the bland look.

BugMe! - I'm always coming up with flashes of ideas that I know darn well that I will forget within five minutes. I have BugMe! programmed as my "ToDo" button so that I can quickly jot down things I need to remember.

X-Master and Hacks - No one hack is a must-have, but together, the 4-5 hacks that I have installed have transformed my Clie from a nice machine into an efficient personal assistant. X-Master allows all that to happen.

As an NX70V user, my choices are dictated to some extent by the strengths (and limitations!) of Palm OS5, and the pure joy of a HiRes+ display:

AcidSolitaire (HiRes+)
Agendus (HiRes+)
AIM instant messanger
LCD Analyzer (HiRes+)
Breakout (HiRes+)
Clie Mail
iSilo (HiRes+)
McFile (HiRes+)
NetFront (HiRes+)
Noah Lite
Noah's Ark
Palm Reader (HiRes+)
Pocket Quicken
Soft Reset
Sync Back
Time Copy
TTFont4NX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
World Alarm Clock
Weight Watcher's Calculator (I wasn't always this trim...)

I was a long term AvantGo user, but when I got my NX70V, I had to make a change. I tried Plucker for a short time, but iSilo won me over completely. I don't think I'll ever go back to AvantGo.

I also had to say a sad goodbye to BigClock, a wonderful freeware application, because although it worked on my NX, the alarm would mess up my display, and I have leftover pixel paranoia from my old NR70V. I'm now using the World Alarm Clock which comes with the NX disc.

Ditto Eudora Internet Suite, another old friend and also freeware. It worked on the NX, but no HiRes+, and some minor display problems. I'm using Clie Mail and NetFront, both included on the NX disc. I've tried Blazer and Xiino, but I prefer NetFront (I seem to be in the minority here).

As you see, almost all of my games are from AstraWare.

I've tried DateBook5, but ran back to Agendus. DB5 seems like a good product, but it seems to be a matter of personal taste, and the learning curve just doesn't seem worth it to me. Agendus is polished, intuitive, and has great customer support. I am not particularly interested in the domain name and Bert's controversy that reared it's ugly head last year. It didn't bother me then and it doesn't bother me now.

The only drawback of my NX is that I miss my hacks: XMaster, PageDown Hack, and McPhling

BTW: Too bad about this site, but a fresh start can be a good thing too.

WorldMate - Traveler's best friend
Wassup - Today view of PIM stuff
