I've got an Okta touch and I'm beginning to absolutely love it - mainly due to third party apps I've installed.

So I got to thinking what's the best apps out there?

I have SPB Shell, SPB Diary, and SPB weather and I love them.

The Shell is fantastic, and has transformed the phone for me, add the diary and the weather and it just perfects what was already a good phone.

So, what else is there, and what do you have that you wouldn't be without?

Plenty of stuff - games, applications, etc. Check our on-line store.

The first app I install is eWallet. I had eWallet on my Palm device since ten years ago, synchronising to my desktop. When I moved to Pocket PCs I just kept the same file and installed the application. I have all my passwords, personal information and more stored on this file.

Another application is Google Maps (you need a data plan for this because maps are downloaded in real-time!).

There are lots. Check an old article I posted on Geekzone about what's on my Pocket PC - some applications are not needed anymore, such as the cabinstall, but it's worth looking at the article.

Hey there - I am getting a Touch tomorrow, I've seen some videos of SPB Shell on YouTube and it looks awesome, but I'm wondering how it interacts with / affects the TouchFlo interface? Does SPB Shell replace TouchFlo, or does it work 'behind' it?

Cheers

Steve

SPB shell brings out the best on any phone really, interacts well with the touchflo.

1) SPB Mobile Shell
2) TCPMP Divx/Xvid Player
3) SPB Mobile DVD (to convert your DVD/Movies to Xvid/TCPMP format which is the best!)
