Hey guys.
I'd like to compile a list of very good (mature) software for the Z so that newbies don't get overwhelmed by the avalanche of apps available on it.
If you have very good apps you think no one should miss, reply here with name, link, and whatever info you think is necessary.
I'll update with mine in a few.
Please do NOT post questions/comments so this thread stays on-course, and easy to read

My personal list:

KDEP Pimpi Zautrix is our savior! Send him bug reports here
Opie Reader cool text reader.
Joe's Own Editor. Just a nice CLI text editor.
QPE Filemanager Just a little less braindead than the Files tab.
Qpdf2 Get the freetype package.

I don't do much with my Zaurus, but I do use the Spoken program that converts text to speech. It is a java program that incorporates the flite speech processer and requires jeode. I have used it with my 5500 and 6000L. This has read me the news while I am jogging and walking to work for over a year now. For the money ($13 US) It is the best thing I have bought for my zauri.

There's a demo available for download. I didn't like it myself. But to each his own I guess.
