  • These are "Free" utilities.

    "Ruler" - hashes as big as your screen and can be calibrated (although out of the box it's dead on)

    "Color Grab" - Will grab just about any color and associate a "name", but it is VERY good at white calibration (why I use it).

    "Graph 89 Free" - Will use the most popular Ti ROMs (not included), but it has a logging feature which most free (all?) don't.

    "SoundHound" - Identifies music. The later versions are a little spy'ish, but it's still faster at identity than the competition (I've tried them all).

    "ConvertPad" - Converts units and can convert currency to a reasonable value (handy to have if you DON'T have the internet).

    "PPSSPP - "Emulates" Sony PSP ROMs using Vulcan. Graphically on mobile, it's hard to beat with all the upscaling features (but games are old).

  • I use some of them too like Ruler and CovertPad. But actually never tried the other ones. I will check them out. Thank you for sharing them here!
