This is the wiki's master application directory for the Openmoko smartphones. It can not be exhaustive, as new things are showing up every week. If you are looking for a specific application and it is not listed there, you have found a bug so please add it. You may provide an outgoing link, or use the opportunity to create a new wiki page for the application.
In this case, note that the directory is organized in sections and that it only provides a short explanation for each entry. For each section X, we also have a separate wiki page named "List of X applications" . These List of ... pages includes more details like screenshots, installation instructions, availability. If you add an application in this directory, please also consider updating the "List of X applications" page.

The pages linked above are all maintained manually. We also maintain an automatic categorization system by tagging wiki pages. Here is the list of application-related pages in this wiki. Normally, every page listed below should be also listed above in the same category. The converse is false: there are applications without a wiki page.
Where to find more applications?
Not all Openmoko apps are listed on this wiki - there are much more projects at the Openmoko GForge than the wiki can list, not to mention self-hosted applications on their own websites. Actually the phones can run most Linux based Free Software, using for example the Debian distribution. The mobile phones section of Freshmeat may be a interesting place to look.

The usual warnings
- Some of these software are developed by Openmoko Inc. and some are contributed by the community. Any problems with community contributed software should be reported to the individual software developer rather than the Openmoko core team.
- Most programs listed here are not mature/stable, but only useable/beta.
- Many programs listed here are not yet packaged for your distribution and integrated in its repositories. Whichever it is.
- Installing experimental software from the internet is certain to break things. Running it as root is a very insecure thing to do. Kown that you will be burned, have backups, and be ready to apologize to everybody in your phone contact list in case they receive strange SMSs...
