I used to use a Palm Treo as my main mobile device, but I've since replaced it with an Android device. I found it interesting to see other people's replacement of apps, and I thought it might be usefull to others to know some of the Android equivalents I've found to my old Palm OS apps. Thus, this list:

Thanks for providing this information. I didn't actually know about the Subway routes.
