    Anyone seen a general list or data manager app for Android? Not looking for a to-do list or task list - but a general list manager where I can define my own tables and fields, edit data, filter, sort, etc. Syncing to a PC app would be great, but I don't really expect that.

    If anyone has used Listpro fom Ilium Software, on Palm or Win Mobile - that's what I am looking to replace.

    I may end up using Excel spreadsheets with Documents to Go from Dataviz - and some general sync tool for PC to phone data sharing - but Listpro was so good, I'll miss it!

    You could also give Google docs a try, I hear they optimized it for mobile. Havnt tested though.

    Hmm - lost what I was typing ...

    Once again, but shorter - Thanks for reminding me - I'll give it a try but I remember it was not optimized for productivity on the small screen.

    I used HanDBase on my Treo - fantastic product. Don't see an Android version for it.

    I got a lot of info by searching for android and listpro - just people looking for a replacement. To be honest, when I was trying to decide on a new platform to replace my Treo, I NEVER imagined this would be the toughest application to replace. Application type, I mean - we had several choices on Palm: Listpro, Handbase - I am sure there are others I am not thinking of ...

    I wonder if there is an iPhone replacement for these products? With PC sync ...

    The other thing about Palm is that they provided a structure for syncing: conduits. So you did one sync, and all your syncing apps were driven by that. I am finding that 1) each application has to develop their own sync architecture, which has got to add to the complexity, and 2) you may have to do multiple sync processes. I am using CompanionLink to sync Outlook to my phone, and it has a sync, and SplashID has its own sync process. MarkSpace does outlook syncing (sort of) and a lot more - but I don't think its the kind of architecture that other vendors would or could use ...

    All I can do is sigh, and wish for the good old days of Palm, and wonder: what happened?? :)
