Hi there,
Firstly I am so glad i found this website. There is so much information around.
Now to my problem. I just got my TNZ Apache and my question is Now what?
What things should I have on it? I am newbie to the World of handhelds so me pretty blank on this one.Any Freewares or good quality softwares out there I must have on my machine.
I am looking for a good IM Client for msn, yahoo & icq. Also a good rss feed reader and some apps which increase functionality on the apache.
Any help would be appreciated & I am looking forward to meeting you at the Auckland dinner.

Good points. The device in itself is a great tool, but it can have its functionality greatly expanded.

I use Spb Diary, Newsbreak RSS feed reader, and a few other software. They are available through our Geekzone Software Store.

Have a look through the store, there are lots of software there. I recommend you install the programs on an external mini SD card though, only using the internal memory for programs that are used in the Today screen (such as Spb Diary for example).

Also, have a look at InHand. It's an online catalog that runs on your device with some screenshots and direct links to the the top software in different categories.
