    Hi there!

    I'm Laura Josepha, just registered at this forum.

    I live in The Netherlands, I'm 37 years old, and work sort of in IT (?!), and apart from my daytime job, I also build websites with my own company Josepha.nl (www.josepha.nl/en)

    I've got my HTC Desire a few weeks now, just figuring everything out.
    I've had and intensively used a Palm M505 since 2001, and was REALLY fond of it, but felt it was time my phone and PIM were combined with each other, and with web access and e-mail.
    So far, I really love my HTC Desire, but I still miss:

    * categories in my calendar, with a color for each category, and which sync with Outlook (this worked on my Palm with the application Datebk4 from Pimlicosoftware.com and later on with Agendus from iambic.com/agendus)

    * my outliner (notes with hierarchical structure, so notes with subnotes and sub-subnotes which you can cross off, as a to-do-list with tasks and sub-tasks). For this, I used Shadow Plan, from codejedi.com.

    * my to-do-list (native on the Palm, and easy to sync with either the Palm Desktop software or with Outlook) (But not wireless, and even less via a mobile connection, of course) (and with categories)

    * my memo / notes application (native on the Palm, and easy to sync with either the Palm Desktop software or with Outlook) (But not wireless, and even less via a mobile connection, of course) (and with categories)

    Okay, I hope to see you all many times, and ask newbie-questions and later on, maybe help some people!

    Byebye, Laura

    Hi There, Laura,

    I think we are on the same boat. Although M505 is a bit historical piece, if you had it finetuned, it might have worked quite well.
    Next to what you wrote regarding tasks and memo I still miss Supermemo (I know there are similar ones, however they do not contain my 10 years learning progress...) and handyshopper - such an easy one, i tried some, they are different.

    We can share experience then.

    OT: congrat to your victory vs Uruguay tonight. Unfortunately, my country was also on the list before, I am from Slovakia sent out by NL too :( So good luck.

    Hi Laura!

    Welcome to Android Forums! I have a few things to say:

    1) You're pretty. (blush)
    2) Are you sure you want to put your personal information up on the internet. I don't know. Just looking out for you! (if you want to edit it out, just hit the "edit" button.
    3) Go to this forum: HTC Desire - Android Forums they can answer all sorts of questions there.
