More nifty software: addressing the Treo's calendar problems

To be honest, a lot of the bundled software on the Treo 600 sucks (as I've said in my reviews!). There are a lot of nice features on Microsoft's Smartphone that I've got used to - among them the idea of the "Today" screen, which brings together your next event, along with your current tasks and possibly some application links...

I've been looking for something to add that to the Treo, and I think I've finally found what I'm looking for. What amuses me, is that it's the latest version of a piece of software I used back in my Palm days - Iambic's Action Names - with a new name, Agendus. It's got all the features I want - a better address book, better tools for handling international appointments, a today view which includes tasks, and an IMAP mail client. There's good use of colour, and the ability to integrate SMS messages and and add icons. All in all, I have to say, it rocks.

My only quibble is that it doesn't do secure IMAP yet, and I can't seem to do IMAP folders...

But it's a start. Looks like I can delete the hack of Versamail off the Treo.
