    People have said good things about TCPMP. I have it installed on my Treo and it's been great. Haven't added it my Q, but plan to.

    Plus, it's free.:happy:

    With what's available so far, I've found Repligo the best document reader and PhatNotes an essential for task/note management. Both have worked on my Q flawlessly.

    I had this simple little program on my Treo called "Big Clock". There wasn't much to it. But it had a very useful, fully programmable stopwatch (which is great for me, because I have to log 8.25hrs a day anything more is considered unauthorized OT, which I get paid for but dosent look good in the long run, because they look at it as mismanaging my time) I use my Symbol MC50 PPC to "Beacon In" (as they call it). Its an IR transmitter/reciever that exists in every Home Depot for vendor log in. Its like a time clock. Anyway, now that Ive written a Biography of my life....Are there any progs out there like I described?

    tcpmp crashes my Q

    Unsure
    Hey, I just installed this app on my Q 45 Mins ago and I tried to watch Blade the series and my Q did a total screene melt. I had to power cycle my phone then It didnt want to come back on. So I had to un-install the player to get control of my Q. Now, This app worked GREAT on my Treo 600 but on the smart phone,,, Well, I will wait until I just need a Better player. So as of this moment Im staying with the Default player.

    Agile Messenger and the Sirius feed program are boht installed on my Q and both work great!

    (I am trying not to load up the Q with a ton of 3rd party apps as in my experience the more I do this to a product the slower it runs... so I want to stay streamlined).

    TCPMP - media player
    Candlelight - dims backlight
    Pocket Light - use flash as flashlight
    QCaps - keyboard enhancement
    Resco Explorer + Rgistry addon - file manager+
    MSN Live Search Mobile - self explanatory
    Blue Tooth Toggler - self explanatory
    xBar3 - Task Manager and a little more

    & a good PIM (Top 3 are Papyrus, Agenda One, Extreme Agenda - not necessarily in that order)

    The first link in this post doesn't work. The second one to the beta does...so is the beta version the current one that works on the Q and WM5?

    Does Agile work with yahoo or is it just an AOL messenger? I have IM + installed and did a trial and like it but have yet to pay.
