Usually, when developers create a new software, their main purpose is to fill one of the many gaps created by Microsoft in the Windows Mobile platform. Not to replace the applications that you use on your desktop. So when one such software comes along and actually does that (not intentionally I guess), even users who […]

Double Up Your Pocket PC As A Webcam

The one spec that I always skip when buying a Pocket PC is that of the camera. After so many years, I have come to given up it ever being able to take great pictures. Instead, I rely on a digital camera, which does a really great job. I was starting to think the Pocket […]

When I was still in college, I did quite a bit of travelling, thanks to the fierce competition among the budget airlines offering unbelievably low fares. During those times, having a travelling companion in the form of software was really handy because all the vital information you needed were within reach. Information such as currency […]

Making Contacts Fun With FunContact

We first reviewed VITO’s FunContact in early November of 2007. Back then, the software was just launched and VITO had a really promising product. Unlike many other contact manager that was in the market, VITO decided to focus on user experience instead of features and thus created an application that was focused around that. Gone […]

When I first moved from my Nokia S60 smartphone (the 6600), the one thing I missed the most about the Symbian platform was the lack of Profiles. No longer was I able to easily switch from Normal to Meeting as easily. Sure Windows Mobile had that speaker icon (and still does) where you can […]

We first mentioned GoodWin here about a month ago when we did our last prize giveaway for 2007. All one had to do was to provide feedback about the software in our forum and we would draw a winner randomly over the course of the month. We had some really great entries (and some satisfied […]

Supersized Note-Taking With PhatNotes

I had to admit, when I first considered reviewing PhatNotes, I was wondering why anyone would need another Notes application? Granted that the Note application in Windows Mobile is rather basic but then again, if you need something more powerful, why not use Word Mobile? That’s what I thought anyways. But after trying the software […]

TapText Data With Ease

When I moved from my HTC Universal (an O2 XDA Exec) to an Eten Glofiish X500, the one thing I missed most was the keyboard. It allowed me to enter text really quickly. At that time, I was running several projects that required me to correspond via email regularly. With the Exec, it was very […]

Launch It With iLauncher3.1

When we were contacted to do a review of iLauncher 3.1, we were pretty excited about it. The developers of the software, SBSH Mobile Software, were really impressed with their new software and they wanted us to see why. So when we were offered the chance to test out iLauncher 3.1, we jumped at it. […]

All In One Spb Pocket Plus

It’s really hard to say what kind of soft Spb Pocket Plus really is. It does many things, from being a today plug-in, to a Pocket IE enhancer and even a task manager with close button. Whatever Pocket Plus is, it’s one software that has received numerous accolades and awards from some really big name […]

Mundu IM Brings Desktop IM To Pocket PC

Ever since I found out that Windows Live Messenger messed with my contacts, I decided not to use the program anymore. Sure I liked how the latest version of mobile Live Messenger worked and all but there was a reason for me setting up the device as such. Looking through the other instant messaging (IM) […]

Learn The Skies With AstroNavigatorII

When I was younger, my dad would point out the stars to me during our camping and fishing trips. He said that I should learn to them in case I were to ever get lost and needed to find directions. For a while, I thought I had it figured out. The 3 sisters, which stars […]

Blogger And WM User? Read On

Blogging can mean different things to different people. I like to blog because I feel it’s one of the best ways to share what I know about Windows Mobile and Eten devices with those who are just starting out. Then there are those who blog to share their personal experiences with the world wide web. […]

Let’s Go To The Opera

And do much more. With Opera for Windows Mobile Pocket PC, you can do so much more with your browser. It puts the default Internet Explorer to shame. I guess the only advantage IE has over Opera is the fact that it’s free. But don’t let the USD$24 price tag set you back. Here’s why […]
