    So far I have been really lucky with the programs I have added to my Treo 755P. These are all programs I had on my TX so likely they are stable with the Palm OS5. I believe I have all the latest versions installed. I did not have a Treo before so now I have to trial some of the Treo applications.:)

    Applications:

    Uninstall Manager
    Resco Explorer
    Resco Backup
    Holiday USA
    Chagim
    Checklist
    Ereader
    Mobipocket
    Fontsmoother
    Handy Shopper
    Pocket Tunes Deluxe- must be the latest version 4.0.2
    Watchmaker
    Zlauncher

    NVBackup disappeared from the Treo during the first day, not sure how. I have reinstalled it and it seems ok so far. I am currently backing up with both NVBackup and Resco Backup. Resco nails the cache pretty good on the Treo too.

    Nice of you to get this going for the 755p. The issue is not Palm OS5 apps but rather Palm OS5 apps that have been updated for NVFS. But, yes, anything from your TX ought to be stable on a Treo. On the other hand, there could always be a new wrinkle so it is good to be cautious. ;)

    Reps to ya. :)

    I use my handhelds a lot to play games. I did not install all of my games yet. I have put them all on the card except Bejeweled 2 which seemed to lag on the card. It still lags in ROM but not as much. I also put Vexed in ROM as it needs to be there for the game packs as I understand it.

    Games:

    Cubis
    Farkle
    Freejong
    TextTwist
    Yahdice
    Penguin Panic
    Word Pop
    Alchemy
    Vexed

    Thanks Hook! I put the games and applications on one at a time and tried them before I moved on, backing up each time before and after. Apparently there are some apps that are Treo only that don't work, but the must affect the system more than the ones I use. Fontsmoother and Zlauncher worried me the most but they seem fine so far. I don't use any hacks so I guess that helps.:)

    Not exactly.
    Card Export II will work on TX, it will not on 680, hence I _suspect_ there will also be issues for 755p.

    Cathearder, I made this thread a sticky in 755p forum ;)

    All: please let's keep this one on-topic ? Thank you for your valuable assistance :D

    I am trialing MyCallLog right now. It is mentioned in Palm OS apps forum. Not sure if it is needed for 755p, but definitely so for 680.
