    Hey there, another newbie post [​IMG]
    What are some good apps for the DS?
    I've seen BEup, which is an MSN messenger app for the DS.
    Anything else out/coming out that might be nifty?

    I'm really deciding on whether or not to get a DS, and if it is as expansive as it seems - im there.

    that is a damn fine list of apps and I need to look into it some more when I get a DS lite. Which flash cart would you recommend for someone wanting those apps? I'm not really interested in the mp3/video function unless it's good and it can hold a lot of songs/high video quality.

    But those emulators and ds organize and the msn app would be totally awesome. So, any recommendations?

    Don't set your heart on playing SNES games on your DS. ATM none of the emus have high compat. (For what i know/remember)

    how's earthbound and actraiser? Is there any list somewhere? If I got just one of those two I'm happy as a frog! But I'd rather have earthbound, since I've only played it on pc, living in PAL-land and all :(

    DrunkenCoders.com has nice homebrew news although they're not as quick at getting news as they used to be.

    Yah snezzi ds is quite compatible and the speed is damn fine, has audio too. I think it was based around the SNES Advance SNESDS setup that came from old loopy/flubba from the GBA hardware. Optimized to hell and back, ran like a champ. Hell if some GBA hardware could run SNES games with asm hacks w/no audio at full speed or near, DS has no excuse not to.
