    get into Homebrews:

    some drawing programs(Colors! and DSnote),

    if you want to make simple flip style animations: FlipBook

    some emulators (nesDS, lameboy, jENESIS DS, snameulDS),

    some music player/editor: GameMelodyOratorioDS, NitroTracker (for chiptunes),

    some greats FPS games that have great ports on DS (QuakeDS, Quake2, DSCENT),

    if you are and old adventure's fan try SCUMM DS(for alot of oldie adventure games, namely, Indiana Jones and fate of Atlantis, Monkey Island 2, Flight of Amazon Queen, etc)

    some random homebrews: PocketPhysics, PuzzleManiak, DSLinux, PlatdudeRetro

    if you are a fan of Rogue-like games, try: ASCIIWARS, NetHackDS, POWDER 102,

    those are the homebrews currently on my DS, you can find them all in homebrew section of this site:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?dlcategory=1

    Thanks to Urza for his hard work on introducing homebrews.

    if you want more, tell me and I can find my topics that people voted on best homebrews.

    DSOrganize is also a popular and useful homebrew app.

    GBA games require an additional slot2 card like the Ewin 2in1 expansion pack or the EZ 3in1 expansion pack. As a bonus, these also work as additional memory required for the Opera Browser. The Ewin 2in1 is relatively inexpensive (about $15 at psxboy.com). You'll also need to grab a loader like GBA ExpLoader from the download section of this site to load GBA games and to patch the memory so that the Opera Browser will run.

    DSOrganize also has one of the best web browsers. It's not a full graphical browser like the Opera Browser, but it's much faster and allows you to download stuff. The homebrew database is also pretty useful. The calculator and IRC client are useful too.

    The icons that come with it are pretty crappy though. I found some really nice icons and then modified them for DSOrganize.

    I assume you want more help with DSorganize and I think Bri is better than helpin with this software than me but its better to ask with more detail what you are after and asking than more vague and general questions.

    Yeah, I really don't understand what you need help with. There is an excellent DSOrganize website, with very detailed instructions about how to use it. Start with the DSOrganize Wiki and see if it doesn't answer your questions.

    Never used it. You'll have to find a website for it. There are actually two weather programs for the DS, one of which is only for Europe. But I've never used either of them, so I can't give you any information.
