Default Handheld Hold'Em Games

I'm curious how many other people in this forum use handheld Hold'Em games to keep their skills sharp when not in a tournament. I have a copy of Dataviz's Hold'Em High on my smartphone, and I play it often when I find I'm out and about with a few minutes to kill.

Hold'Em High has three different difficulty levels: Novice, Average, and
Expert. The novice level is embarrassingly easy to beat, and the average level is not much better. The Expert level, however, is very difficult because all computer players play a very tight/aggressive game.

There are a couple of problems with this software, namely that it occasionally loses its mind and distributes chip totals incorrectly. I think that is a problem with the PalmOS or hardware, though, more than the software. I've noticed that when the poker program is acting funny, I can reset the computer and everything plays fine from there. Usually other aspects of the handheld are flaky as well, which is what makes me think the problem is in the operating system.

I know there are a lot of different Hold'Em games out there, both proprietary handhelds and programs made for smartphones and PDAs. Which programs, if any, do you use?
Just my $.02/$.04
