Note: Since by definition "smartphones" are phones that are also PDA's, the software reviewed here should work with personal digital assistants that are not "smartphones". Check the operating system because we'll be reviewing software for both Pocket PC and Palm devices. -- Editor
AvantGo is cool software that you can use on your PDA or smartphone. It's been available for Palm and Windows Mobile devices for some time, but just recently they came out with a version for the Blackberry. AvantGo is free and it gives you a way to have incredible content on your device. I use it to get news, weather, technology updates, and lots more. There are literally thousands of channels available for you to pick from.
I've also used AvantGo to get driving directions so I can have them right on my phone for easy reference. The content is free and it gives you a great way to receive content on your mobile device. Another cool feature is the ability to create personal channels. With these you can create links to your own Web site, travel sites, and lots more. I even have a channel for Tucows right on my phone.
AvantGo can bet set up to synchronize daily, hourly, or whenever you want. In addition to great content like news and weather you can also get free games to play right on your device. Do you like to read RSS feeds? No problem because with AvantGo you can get them right on your device and optimized for the screen on your device.
So, if you're looking for an easy way to get interesting content on your Blackberry device, this is your solution.
If you have software you use on your "smartphone" or PDA, come and talk about it with us in the Forums. We look forward to seeing you there.
