    Well I finally dumped my Palm and have gone modern with the LG Ally. I like all the bells and whistles but still miss having the calendar & task feature on my phone and desktop. I have synced to Google but I just don't like the feel especially now that all my contacts are in First Name Last Name order (how do I fix this in Google). Can anyone recommend a good desktop calender/to-do app?

    Thanks!

    I use CalendarPad as opposed to the HTC or stock Calendar. From reading these forums I've noticed a lot of users coming from Palm and BB who prefer Jorte. As for To-do List / reminder type apps a lot of people love Astrid, there's also 3Banana, and Evernote but I don't use any of them.

    For the answer to your first name last name question check out Ask Nerd Girl on AndroidTapp . com, I believe she answered this question in one of her past blogs, but I don't recall what the solution was.

    Hope this helps.

    already said in details...;)
    the right coast
    Pure Calendar, and Pure Grid Calendar

    And Jorte

    All are good, and integrate tasks in different ways.

    Jorte is free in the market, and Pure costs a couple bucks. (is also produced by a very good developer, and I don't mind giving a few bucks to good dev's)

    Todo Task Manager is almost identical to the Palm OS style task list. If you depended upon the custom pattern for when a task repeated, check it out.

    Hi-I've been using Jorte and the Agenda Widget, not bad...Astrid for tasks (enters tasks into the Agenda Widget, which is nice). Have tried Gemini Calendar, looks nicer, but I find Jorte more functional (Gemini was in beta, so may have changed). Notes I'm still sorting out; have tried ColorNote (simple, looks nice, not many functions), 3 Banana and Note Everything, which are all on my Droid now. I miss Pocket Informant, which I used on my Dell x51v (Pocket PC), but these are adequate. (I've read PI is coming to Android in the fall, but will be about $90 or so, a big investment)

    Was that a typo on the price?? I obtained Pocket Informant free for Windows Mobile through a "free app friday" deal on Handango, but even so, I don't recall it being more than $10! $90 would be insane!

    It wasn't a typo-I'm pretty sure I saw it somewhere in the forum section on their site. I just went back to check the on latest news there, ans now they are saying something like $12.99 (which is the iphone price), and it's in beta, possible release Sept or Oct. Sorry for the misinformation.
