    My personal best and most used one has got to be lmp-ng.

    I've used it way more then any other homebrew program out there and always had it on in PT/school/public.

    Yaay for Phatty DS MP3 player.

    From Where???
    people are going to suggest for you the things they like, not necessarily the things you will like. for example, when i travel i make use of Clirc on the ds, i highly recommend it, but it is only going to be interesting to you if you chat on IRC. here is another example, nitrotracker is a solid application for making music, but i don't use it so i would probably not remember to recommend it.

    it might be easier if you simply told us what type of things you are looking for. do you want chatting applications, art applications, music applications, multimedia applications, etc? do you want rpgs, platformers, or adventure games? do you want emulators and interpreters?

    another suggestion is simply to go through the files on filetrip and see what interests you. in the long run it may save you time as you won't be clicking on every suggested link or collection of suggested files.

    http://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/games/
    http://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/applications/

    homebrew can be very personal. find what you love and start to build your own list of suggested files.

    Thanks

    As far as video players go, you're going to be disappointed. Unless you have something like a DSTwo, you're going to need to convert your video files over to DPG and use moonshell.
    (Moonshell comes with a DPG converter.)

    Yes I know about TunaVids and such, but IIRC those perform worse.

    Between insane and insecure
    I suggest checking out GBAtemp's own filetrip.
    Filetrip is the best site I know for downloading homebrew.
    I also suggest downloading the latest moonshell, it does come with all the tools you need.

    If Batch DPG isn't working then you might want to try a converter with support for many more input formats, such as SUPER.

    Yes, it's free.
    But out of curiosity, what would be the problem, if it were a shareware program? :mellow:
