The Palm comes with it’s own address (contact), to-do and a program called Palm Desktop that is similar to Outlook. The programs I mentioned are an upgraded version of Palms Standard ones that IMHO add much more flexibility and makes it more usable. Palm includes a Synchronization program that keeps the desktop computer and palm up to date with the same info. (Change/add info in one & it will appear in the other when you sync) You don’t need Outlook, though since that’s what I am using on the computer in the office, it’s nice to be able to sync the palm and office computer. (That way my boss, errr, wife, can check on my schedule, etc.) Palm includes an additional program that will keep the Palm Synced up with Outlook in addition to it’s own Palm Desktop Program. (Which I like because it’s easy to share info between Word/Excel/etc.) I am using 2000, jsut becuase I like to stay current and keep Bill rich. I am certain I saw that Franklin Covey sells a version that adds their Time Management tools to Outlook and carries it over to the Palm. I’m sure you can check it out at their store.
I got the other software I was talking about as follows:
