If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!Buying a Windows Mobile device can be really expensive. For starters, there are models that are not subsidized by your local carrier and even if they were, they still cost a lot more than most of the phones in [...]
When it comes to managing your photos on a Pocket PC, the default Photos & Videos application ain’t exactly finger-friendly for navigating and viewing your hundreds (and thousands in some cases) of photos. I think VITO Technology realized this and came up with EyePhoto, the latest application in their iWindowsMobile stable of applications that are [...]
This is the first time I have ever written a mobile post. In other words, both the words and pictures were composed on my Sprint Mogul. The reason I am doing it this way , as you can see, I am nowhere near my laptop right now.
I just wanted to say hello from [...]
If it is nighttime where you live, open up a door or a window and take look up in the sky. Go ahead. I’ll wait. Great…you’re back. So, what did you see? A whole bunch of twinkling lights? I bet you can remember far enough back to your high [...]
If you were a Windows Mobile developer and distributed your applications through Handango, what would you have done when Handango recently raised their profit cut? I for one would have boycotted them and look for other avenues. And I was hoping that other companies would do just the same.
These developers deserve better. A whole lot [...]
WalkingHotSpot Turns Your Pocket PC Into a WiFi Hotspot
Got an unlimited data connection and want to share it with your colleagues the next time you are out together? The WalkingHotSpot by TapRoot is something keeping a watch on. It turns your Pocket PC into WiFi hotspot. What’s great about this application is that you could [...]
When it comes to file explorer, I prefer to go with something more robust than the generic File Explorer that I (and you) got with Windows Mobile. And thankfully, there are a lot of such applications out there, be it commercial or free software. One such application is Wizcode’s Virtual Explorer that was recently upgraded [...]
The problem with many notification applications out there is that they are rather generic. Which means, you could only set how how often to remind you that there are unread messages. But we don’t always want to be reminded of every single unread message do we? I mean, messages from my boss and significant other [...]
Your Pocket PC’s a great device but you have to admit, sometimes, it’s just much easier to organize the data on your computer. While there have been remote controllers like SOTI Pocket Controller and even the free MyMobiler, these applications basically provides your Pocket PC with mouse and keyboard. That’s not to say that [...]
For the past several months, I have been covering the brewing Windows Mobile Internet browser wars. Within the space of a few weeks, we saw announcements of new mobile browsers from a variety of tried and true companies, such as Netfront and Opera; as well as a few newcomers like SkyFire. The latest entry is [...]
Today, Resco announced the release of a new game, Resco Sudoku Touch. Now, I know what you are thinking: I am sooo over the 551 Sudoku games out there for my device. Yeah, I hear you . I’ve been there done that as well. But bear with me here, I think you will be fairly [...]
I think every reviewer has one that got away. That elusive review that you keep meaning to get to, but never quite do. For me, that review was Astraware’s Bejeweled series. So, let’s start with the Why. Why was I so interested in this program? Well, for starters, Bejeweled was [...]
This one has been around for a while. In fact, I first came across it as a result of a post on PocketNow last November, but I thought it was worth a mention. Over at PDAb.net, which offers some spectacular resources, they have created a Windows Mobile museum. Actually, a PDAhistory chart.
The chart, which is [...]
I have been trying to review Extreme Agenda for Windows Mobile Professional almost since its initial release several months ago. This is a review which, quite frankly, has been giving me fits because it has been so difficult to write. Not because of anything in the program. In fact, as we will [...]
I’m a geek. Well, at least according to my lawyer friends, who tend to be a little bit, shall we say, “old school.” While things seem to be changing, I’d estimate that about 3/4 of all of my lawyer friends still use paper daybooks and dumb-phones.
I try to change this. I really do. But, I [...]
The latest weird phone from Toshiba
I know this is a bit off topic, but this “dumb phone” from Toshiba was just too “interesting” looking to pass up. Of course, with that hefty price tag of $4,000, I doubt that most of us will get our hands on it (not that many of us will likely [...]
Well, it looks like we are not the only ones launching on April 1. According to Internet rumors, Windows Mobile 6.1 is expected to start rolling out of Redmond on April 1 as well. Why April 1, you may ask? That is the official start date of CTIA, and Robbie Bach, the [...]
No, the reference to a pair above is not some new update to Astraware’s immensely addictive Casino Pack. Instead, it is a reference to the email I got from my good friend Alison over at Astraware, informing me that tomrrow (Wednesday) they will be release two new games.
Astraware is excited to announce the [...]
This month PhatWare Corp. is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. In Pocket PC years, that means they are practically ancient, having been founded when Windows Mobile was in its infancy. According to the company:
While PhatWare Corp. was founded in November of 1997, we consider March of 1998 the true beginning, when HPC Notes 2.0 (now [...]
Details of the latest Oragami 2.0 device (OK, maybe this is slightly left of Windows Mobile, but still relevant), the Shift, have been scarce. In fact, the only thing we knew until recently was that it looked pretty cool, ran Windows Vista, and would be coming soon. Of course, that coming soon stretched [...]
