    My needs are simple, but don't know if the apps are out there. I would like (hopefully free):

    vpn, or another way for remote access to computer
    pandora
    google maps
    skype
    read and edit office docs
    IM for yahoo, aol, etc. in one app
    FB
    Browser options?

    On a tangent, will Droid support javascript, and will Flash eventually come to Android? Finally, can Droid multi-task.

    Thank you for your time.

    Pretty simple apps to get there, so far i'd stick with the browser it comes with, it's fine to me. Yes flash will be coming to the droid, just give it i think 2 months? or so was the outlook on that.

    remote access

    Today I tested the GoToMyPc and LogMeIn services with the Droid browser at Verizon Wireless and wasn't able to connect remotely to a PC with either service. I was impressed with the way the device and browser operated but I have to meet the remote access requirement. Does anyone know of a work around?

    BTW there are VPN Settings in Settings > Wireless & networks > VPN Settings.

    Not sure if that is useful for you, but its there.

    There should be a way to even implement existing VPN Profiles from common clients like cisco or lancom anyways. Thats the great opportunity in this phone we get from beeng based on linux ^^

    So far I have been unable to get it to connect to a CISCO VPN. No where to put in any of the group info. Has anyone been successful at this? I know it's possible on a rooted G1.

    Remote access program

    Best one out there by far IMO is phonemypc. It works like Logmein in that you install one part of the program on the PC and the other part is an app for an Android operating system. You don't have to worry about setting up Remote Desktop, IP addresses, routers, none of that techno work. It's fawesome!

    I've heard about "remote" Mumbo Jumbo for YEARS now, but have never looked into it.
    what is the point of being about to connect to another PC at home?
