    Not sure of your question. You are looking to install an application on your Treo 700p that allows for creating notes using graffiti? The options are DiddleBug, BugMe and MobileWrite.

    I'd recommend against that. Many long-time Palm users are tempted to do it, but apps designed for other Palm devices don't play well on the 700p. That's the reason it's also strongly discouraged that Palm owners just sync their old apps to their 700p once they first get it.

    There are many who share your frustration at not being able to use familiar apps, but the potential headaches you might encounter wouldn't be worth it, IMHO.

    I was looking for the Palm knowledgebase document that details upgrading from a previous Palm device (Zire). If I recall, it lists a few apps that don't play nice on the Treo.

    Found it, but I was incorrect. It doesn't list the apps, but rather informs of a quarantine process for 3rd party apps during the transfer.

    "The Treo 650 installer includes a "quarantine" process that isolates third-party applications that Palm has identified to be incompatible with Treo 650. These quarantined applications will not be migrated to your new Treo 650."

    I assume the process is the same for the 700p. If it didn't make the transfer, Palm may have deemed it incompatible with the Treo.

    You're quick, Chris. I was just about to post the same page/info.

    You might take a look at EasyNotes, which uses your Memo DB, but also allows sketches and voice recording to them.

    Is there a notepad that stores into the SD by default? like CardTXT for memopad? Thanks

    EasyNotes allows storing to the card, but is set to RAM by default...just a simple pref change though.

    Was the OP still looking for a way to accomplish this? I'm relatively new to my Treo but I've had Palms forever. I have successfully transferred the native Notepad program from my previous Zire to the Treo with no adverse effects. The only problem is that there is no Notepad app in the Palm Desktop but anything you write into the Treo will be fine there.

    If you're still interested, let me know and I can walk you through it. Alternatively, you may search Google and find a few articles.
