> Sl-c1000...applications In Landscape Mode?, Where to find?

I'm a former Pocket PC and Palm user and I just purchased my first Sharp SL-C1000. I love the unit and have no regrets. I installed Cacko 1.23, which is top notch. I also successfully synched with Outlook 2000 on the PC (note it doesn't work at all with 2003).

However there is one problem: I can't find any good 3rd party applications for the Zaurus! After reading extensive reviews on the unit I expected most of the applications found in the Zaurus Software Indexes to be compatible. But 90% of them aren't really compatible, at least in 640x480 Landscape mode. Many of them will crash my C1000, and virtually all of them run in this very bizzarre low res portrait mode, which is awkward to say the least. Working in high-res landscape mode is really the reason I bought the unit.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Or perhaps has someone compiled a list of good applications that work in VGA Landscape mode? Notable exceptions are:

SAFEDEE...works perfect in Landscape Mode
CLOVERPAINT...does not work in Landscape mode but its a nice program and good implementation.

I'm looking for a good PDF reader...and not too much else maybe an outliner or financial program.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
