New York Times Reader

These tiny snippets of the daily news, fed from the New York Times, are just about the right size for a quick news update on the Pre.

Pandora

One of the best music radio clients on the web, this pocket sized version works exactly the same – you type in an artist name and listen to songs that are similar. Streaming worked perfectly on our Pre over a 5Mbps Wi-Fi connection.

PocketMirror

Almost the exact same functions as MissingSync, this holdover from the early days of Palm worked like a charm for contacts, calender, and tasks.

Shortcovers

A virtual library tool, Shortcovers helps you keep track of what you are reading and share your list with other users.

Spaz

Spaz is a Twitter aggregator that lets you keep track of Twitter feeds, search postings, and add favorites.

SpeedBrain

One of the few truly interesting games on the Pre, SpeedBrain is addictive because it's a memory game where you have to click whether an image matches the previously shown graphic, and because you can track high scores.

SportingNews

The client we downloaded for Sporting News (a US magazine and website) showed all of the Major League Baseball scores. You can also show the stats for your favourite team.

Soduku

Soduku fans don't have to forgo their daily routine just because they own a Palm Pre – thankfully, there is a client with multiple puzzles to try.

Tweed

The Palm Pre is an exceptional social networking device, and the Tweed client helps you post your status quickly for all to see and track feeds from other users. It doesn't have quite the same search functions as Spaz but is more directly tied to the popular status update service.

Where

The Where client for Palm Pre functions exactly like the one for iPhone, listing interesting eateries nearby, gas station prices, and other travel related data.
