I don't have specific ones in mind, no (I stopped using my Z a few months 
ago for a variety of reasons).  I just recall that the majority of time I 
found a new app to try I would use the gui add/remove packages option, try 
to select SD, and almost always be told "An error occurred."  Maybe if I 
used the command line version coupled with ipkg-link I would have had 
better luck.

Having just turned my Z back on after a few months the other day I was 
disappointed to discover it had completely wiped itself.  But the SD card 
had not.  Luckily that's where I kept my backup files :).
