    Games - Pocket snails (Worms Clone)

    Apps - Pocket ping
    - SkyPE (if you use SkyPE)
    - Real One Player
    - PocketMusic (I think that's what it's called http://www.pocketmind.com)

    I'm sure there is alot more but I've really not been using my pocket PC and that's about all I've bothered puting back on it

    right ok i havent tried the player Otacons pimping but i use beta player and have had no probs.

    games wise i think a game called space trader is free and is quite small but damn addictive.

    I also have to have PHM regedit as i hate the last used program list and this is the only way i know if how to clear it.

    and also MINIMO!! (ppc firefox;))

    also have today plus as my today plugin as its customizable and i like it.

    :D

    Thanks Burnsy - WM5 comes with a fantastic TS Client. When I said remote contol software, I meant the type that allows you to program your PDA to control all the TVs, CD players etc in your house...
