This application is by no means new, but its new to me. If you ever listen to MP3s on your Windows Mobile and you don't already have a 3rd party player - get PocketMinds PocketMusic.
It looks great, its intuitive to use, and its quality exceeds many commercial applications - and did I mention it was free?
Also worth noting, it supports Winamp 2.x skins free available online (although I haven't tried this feature yet).
And its only $2.99 US

Panoramic Software Inc is about to release version 1.5.0 of moTweets, its popular twitter client for Windows Mobile 5.0 and newer devices (including 6.5).
Along with a handful of improvements and fixes, performance has also been improved. However, this version contains two major improvements:
Support for Lists - although they can't be created from your device you can easily select and view lists
Translations - moTweets is now able to translate posts into your currently selected language. Language detection is automatic so you don't need to know what you're translating from.
Also worth noting, moTweets now supports Korean and Italian languages. And by popular demand, yFrog support has been added for posting and viewing images.
Get it from Panoramic's website or the Windows Mobile marketplace. If you already have an ealier version of moTweets installed it will prompt you to upgrade next time you launch moTweets.

My Dell Laptop didn't come with any 3rd party CD burning software and I wanted to burn an ISO image ... a quick google search brought me to http://www.freeisoburner.com/.
I downloaded the app, checked it for viruses and started it up. It was simple, didn't install unnecessary files to my computer, and successfully burned my Slax CD image.
5 stars for doing exactly what I needed and nothing more. If you're looking for a free application to burn ISO files - Free ISO burner is perfect.

Instability is usually fixed by removing the offending program and doing a soft reset (or a hard reset if I've really messed things up).
More recently I've had problems with my Palm Treo Pro - it would frequently lock up, sometimes 2-3 times a day. I'll save the long story but I wasn't able to find a cause for the problems and eventually concluded I had physically damaged the phone.
Two nights ago my phone locked up and when I rebooted it refused to read my 8gig memory card. After a bit of troubleshooting I discovered the card itself was bad - and its now completely unreadable. I swapped in a new one and my phone behaving perfectly.
Boring story? Yes ... but I've never had a memory card go south on me and I certainly never thought it would cause my phone to crash. Hopefully this saves someone some frustration.

One thing I rely on quite a bit is moving windows by right clicking on them in the task bar. The "Move Window" option no longer shows up in Windows 7.
However you can get the old style context menu by holding down shift while right clicking on the task bar.
If you use multiple monitors and/or remote desktop you'll likely find this useful.

I recently purchased a Pioneer AVIC F700BT double din in-dash car stereo with GPS. Which is exciting for me but probably not that interesting to you.
What is interesting is that shortly after installation I did some searching to see if anyone has done any hacks or mods to this particular unit. It turns out that all of the F & X series Pioneer GPS units are running Windows CE 5.0 under the hood. And what's even more interesting, there are freely available tools out there that allow you to easily boot directly into the CE environment.
As these devices have 2gig of internal storage, ARM processors and 256meg or RAM, this is pretty ideal platform to experiment with if you have dreams of making custom car computer software. The F700 comes with a CD drive and the F90 & F900 both come with DVD drives and MSN Direct hardware.
If nothing else you could easily create an SD card that boots into the CE environment and provides a web browser. With a quick tether to your cell phone you'd have Internet access on your in dash car computer.
As I experiment with my new CE toy I'll post updates. In the meantime head over to http://www.avic411.com/ if you want to learn more about hacking Pioneer GPS devices.
I'll also share my initial thoughts on using the F700BT and how it compares to my old Eclipse 3424.
First off, the F700 has a fan so instantly it has background noise, although its not noticeable in my Acura once the car is running. If you have a really high-end car you might notice it, but then you'd probably also already have GPS from the factory.
The sound quality is good but I had to re-tune my system as the Eclipse has 4V pre-outs vs the F700's 2 Volt. I also seem to be getting background hiss on AM radio, but its minor.
The interface is good but you'll definitely want to upgrade to the 3.0 version of the software as it greatly improves performance. Once you learn the layout you can get to everything quickly, although its still not quite as easy to use as a dedicated audio player. That being said its more intuitive than my old Eclipse.
Its performed great loadings CDs and MP3s from CDs, SD cards and USB sticks and the GPS works really well. It also pairs almost instantly with my Palm Tro Pro via Bluetooth and transferring contacts to the deck was easy.
Overall I'm very happy with the purchase for the money and with the ability to access the CE environment I'm thrilled.
It doesn't come with a remote control and the F700 does not have an IR port so you won't be able to add one. (I never used mine in the past anyways).
You'll need to purchase an additional cable to use your iPod and you might as well buy it before you have the deck installed as it plugs into the back.

Version 1.8.6 should be released later today, if you haven't updated Phone Genius for a while you'll want the new version.
Panoramic has been working hard to improve the software from top to bottom, there have been many recent changes that improve speed and reduce memory usage. If you've had any problems in the past you owe it to yourself to get the latest version.
And the big news, as of 1.8.5, it now fully supports regional calling codes for Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. More countries coming soon.

1. The 6.5 Developer Tool Kits has been released: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=20686a1d-97a8-4f80-bc6a-ae010e085a6e
(don't forget to install the WM 6 SDK(s) first)
2. You need to include gesture.h, GesturePhysicsEngine.h & WindowsAutoGesture.h to handle gestures in your apps and games (touch screen devices only)
3. Gesture samples projects get installed with the 6.5 Dev Tool Kits - C:\Program Files\Windows Mobile 6 SDK\Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit\Samples\PocketPC\CPP\win32 by default
4. WM 6.5 Supports Widgets - since its already explained here I won't re-write it:
5. New Start Menu icons are 45x45 pixel PNGs (90x90 for hi res and 60x60 for 128dpi). 32 bit images and transparencies are supported.
6. PNG "icons" can be placed anywhere as long as you have the appropriate registry key: "HKLM\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start\MyCoolApp.lnk" In that key create a string value named "Icon" that points to your png (ie \Windows\MyCoolApp.png). You'll need to be clever about supporting multiple resolutions during installation.
7. The only professional square emulator provided is a 128dpi 320x320 resolution. So hopefully no more 240x240 touch screen devices.
8. The new Today Screen is just a plugin so it can be turned off if you're trying to make today screen plugs (although this might upset your customers).
9. Windows Mobile 6.5 is still built on CE 5 so you can use the WM 5 SDKs to develop if you don't need the new features. (and honestly you can still use the 2002 & 2003 SDKs if you want but its a hassle if you need to debug on newer devices).
10. If you're feeling brave and don't mind bending the law you might be able to upgrade your current WM phone to 6.5 by searching on http://www.xdadevelopers.com/ (at your own risk)
** Update **
There was a mention of 36x36 and 64x64 png icons needed for 96dpi devices and some of the other sizes will be used on multiple devices. I'll post further details as I find them.

Version 1.2.0 has a few new key features:
- proper keyboard support on the Programs and Settings view
- keyboard support when adding Programs or Settings to the Favorites view
- "Bounce" effect added to all of the scrolling menus (just for fun)
- minor memory optimizations
Go to http://www.panoramicsoft.com/ for more information and to get the latest version
Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Several minor bug fixes were made to Contacts Genius (which is included in Phone Genius). The big fix is the ability to display contacts without names that only have a business name defined.
A "Bounce" effect has also been added to the scrolling menus and lists.
Go to www.panoramicsoft.com for more information
A small bug was spotted when entering constants in RPN mode, it would add the previous value to stack twice - that has now been fixed.
Two new conversions have been added to the Torque Unit converter "km cm" and "g cm".
And a bug has been fixed that corrects some currency symbols not showing up in the Currency Converter on traditional Chinese devices.
This new version probably doesn't contain anything for the average user but if you're like me you want to have the latest version installed anyways - so head over to www.panoramicsoft.com

I've been playing Trivial Pursuit off and on for a few years now and I finally got tired of trying to answer questions that were all at least 10 years old. I went to the store and the only new version of game I could find was "Trivial Pursuit Digital Choice". And I'll be honest, had there been the normal version I still probably would have bought the one with the electronic gizmo.
The game comes with a full size board, and all of the usual player pieces, the only difference is the electronic device that you use in place of the trivia cards (which you can see sitting above the PSP 1001).
The device comes with 12 sets of 50 questions that cover the basic Trivial Pursuit categories. You can also go to their website and download other question packs - which are well organized and spread across a huge range of interests/categories.
- the device is cheaply made
- is not intuitive to use - it'll take some time before you're comfortable with it
- its cumbersome to set up custom games
- the back light turns off very quickly
- it holds 2000 questions across multiple categories
- its very easy to add new questions from the website
- battery life is excellent
- it tells you when you've used up all of the questions in a category
- allows for quick games where the question packs are randomly selected
I personally still prefer playing with the standard cards - there's just something strange about passing around the bulky, plastic device. And its far easier to flip over a card than press several buttons to get to a question.
Overall though I'd still recommend it simply for the huge selection and variety of questions.http://www.hasbro.com/trivialpursuit/

So it was polished up, giving a catchy title and Launch Pad 1.0.0 was released. Shortly afterwards, it became apparent that it could be improved, and Launch Pad 1.1.1 was released earlier today.
"Panoramic LaunchPad allows you the freedom to easily access your Windows Mobile applications, settings, files and folders with your finger tips. Flip between two customizable favorite screens for quick access to your most frequently used items. An easy to use touch kinetic scroll menu allows you to find the Program or device Setting you are looking for in seconds. "
Improvements in 1.1.1:
Ability to add files or folders to the favorites
Ability to change the titles of the two favorites sections
Improved labels on the favorites
Better support for 320x320 devices
A few other minor tweaks

We have new releases of Panoramic Calc Pro. 2.7.3 was releases immediately after 2.7.2 and fixes a bug with Calc Pro's application icon. Its not an essential update but you'll probably want it for ascetic reasons.
2.7.2 contains some major updates, however these new features and updates probably won't be used by most of our users (my self included).
Better handling of inputting and calculating values in Degrees/Minutes/Seconds. As you can see in the screenshot, Calc Pro will now properly format and handle values in DMS. Numbers can easily be converted between decimal and degrees from the Scientific calculator.
Multi line display for the R.P.N. calculator mode. As you can see in the screenshot we now show two lines of the stack instead of one. For owners of wide screen devices - you'll see 3 lines of the stack when your calculator is in portrait mode.
Better viewing of the RPN stack. You can tap on the low right area of the display to show the values currently in the stack. Its now displayed in a finger friendly list instead of simple message window.
Added Base3, 4, 5, & 12 support the Base Conversions calculator. This is mostly of academic interest but it doesn't take away from any of the other features so we felt it was a worthy addition.
Added the ability to save images of the graph from the graph screen (2.7.1). Also added the ability to chose the name and location of the bitmap to be saved.
Increased the spacing on the menus for wide screen devices in portrait mode to make them easier to use with your fingers.
And as usual we've continued to make minor improvements in the calculator logic and with the button layouts.

Jennifer Chappel, a reviewer and Palm enthusiast at http://www.treocentral.com/ has taken the time to review Panoramic BlackJack 1.0.1.
You can read the review here:
The review is very favorable which of course puts smiles on our faces but my favorite quote from the review is:
Monday, April 6, 2009
I was helping a friend with a few grade 12 math problems and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to put the graphing abilities of Calc Pro to use.
I'm happy to report that it worked great but I also realized there was some room for improvement for both entering graph equations and navigating the graph display.
With that in mind we made the following improvements to Calc Pro in version 2.6.8
- onscreen zoom buttons for the graph (see screenshot)
- reduced minimum bounding box when in zoom mode - ie - you can drag out a smaller rectangle it will still zoom
- smarter equation entry - the text size automatically reduces and the equations will now scroll to the right if the equation won't fit in the display.
As usual - grab the latest version from www.windowsmobilecalculator.com
And you can always upgrade your paid version by installing the latest trial overtop.

I just thought I'd show everyone how I have my Treo setup just in case anyone is looking for ideas, suggestions or recommendations.
I'll start at the top and work my way down:
iSS Battery Meter: that's the rainbow colored bar at the top. It takes up almost no system resources and never gets in the way: battery monitoring made easy.
Panoramic Phone Genius: this configurable today screen plugin works really well. Starting from the top left the icons are:
- phone profile (to control ringing on incoming calls)
- missed calls
- today screen settings
- communication settings
- favorite contacts (Panoramic Contacts Genius)
- Panoramic Launcher (beta - not yet released)
- Panoramic Calc Pro
- clock & alarm settings
Next is Calendar+. This is an open source project I found a few years ago that I've updated to properly support 128 DPI devices. Let me know if you'd like a copy of this version. It's a great plugin that behaves like the default calendar plugin but allows you to show multiple appointments. Its also very configurable it terms of layout and appearance.
And finally, Fizz Traveller. This layout is a custom one I created to properly fit 4 days of weather on the 320x320 screen. Again, I'll be happy to provide it upon request.
I have iSS Task Switcher running and avaliable by tap & hold on the top right-hand corner of the screen. Also launchable by pressing shift-ok.
I also have iSS Explorer Pro set up as a quick launch by pressing shift and the windows button.
All of the retail applications are available at http://www.wireless-apps.net/
And I highly recommend the Palm Treo Pro - this is the best Windows Mobile touch-screen device I've ever owned.
Monday, March 23, 2009
- now displays "retail", "trial" or "expired" in the about screen
- added a softer 'tap' sound in the options (user requested feature)
- forces 'normal' number formatting on worksheets as SCI & ENG formatting could cause issues
- improved memory and performance on scrollable menus/lists
- some minor interface alignment improvements
- fixed the reset button on some of the worksheets - they should all be 100% now
- updated the installer to allow upgrading by installing the latest trial version over a retail version. You'll need to install the retail version of 2.6.5 for this to work
- Fixed the worksheet bug where changing cells using the stylus could result in bad values (this should solve any confusion with the worksheets)
- BIG improvement to the Date & Time Calculator - it should handle dates beyond the year 7000 now and handle intervals up to 999,999 days
Now for version 2.6.6:
- fixed the graphing bug on equations with leading '-'
- the installer will no longer ask you twice about keeping your user settings when upgrading
- improved the random function (you'll never notice it but its more 'random')
- improved displaying equations using "Expression mode" for entries wider than the screen
- improved accuracy of Unit Converter results (actually just shows more significant figures - internally its the same)
- fixed Unit Converter and Currency Converter behavior on numbers requiring exponents. Values should never be cut off now
- NEW FEATURE - added an equation buffer to the "Expression calc" mode. It will now store up to20 equations/answers and allow you to scroll through them using up and down on your directional pad. Stylus support coming soon
Buy it now at http://www.windowsmobilecalculator.com/ or download the latest version from your software vendor. If you're not able to get the latest version please contact support through at Panoramic's website and we'll be happy to send it to you free of charge: http://www.panoramicsoft.com/

I finally got around to doing a little research and discovered this bug isn't unique to the Treo Pro, but may many of the new windows mobile phones on the market. The good news is, there is a very easy fix.
Grab your favorite registry editing program (mine is of course iSS Registry Editor) and add the following DWORD
set the value to 0 and perform a soft reset.
This will not fix the time stamps on messages you've already received but all future SMS messages should display the correct time.
If its still not working double check the location, spelling, case of the registry key and of course make sure your regional setting and clock are set right.

Game board improvements - I reduced the boarders around the game field as much as possible which in effect increases the size of the game board, images and numbers.
Best Time is now displayed during the game.

Panoramic Software has quietly released v1 of WiFi Hero.
This tool was created to solve the problem of lost WiFi settings on Windows Mobile 6 & 6.1.
Microsoft implemented a "feature - not a bug" that will erase settings for WiFi access points if the connection fails. What this means is - if attempt to access a WiFi network that requires a pre-shared key and it ever fails for any reason (and anyone that uses WiFi knows it does happen from time to time), a Windows Mobile 6 or newer device will detect the failure and decide that the current settings must me to blame. It will then promptly erase settings for that WiFi access point along with the preshared key. This becomes a huge hassle for users - and an even bigger hassle for IT departments.
WiFi Hero will back up all settings upon first use and will prompt the user for passwords of access points that require network keys (don't worry - you'll only be asked once).
After that - simply load WiFi Hero whenever your settings are erased and you'll be able to restore them in one click.
Corporate versions are also available that remove the need for user intervention and allow for network keys to be pre-installed and encrypted for additional security. Contact Panoramic Software for more information: www.panoramicsoft.com
And you can buy it here for $1.99:

Panoramic Software has just released Calc Pro 2.5.0. The big news with this release is support for Windows Mobile Standard devices. Its now 100% compatible with all Windows Mobile 5.0, 6.0 & 6.1 devices.
That's not the only big change in 2.5
The interface has been improved top to bottom improving appearance, speed and button layouts. Also the Paperless Tape feature has been improved for performance and stability.
For the technical people the Base Converter calculator has been pumped up with two more operators: NAND & XNOR.
The Graph screen has been improved and includes a new feature to center the view on data sets when performing regression - very useful.
The Statistics Calculator has been upgraded to now include a highly accurate Exponential Regression Worksheet. And both Linear Regression and Exponential Regression worksheets can now open and save CSV (comma separated value) files that are compatible with Excel and Pocket Excel.
As well there have been numerous fixes and improvements in all aspects of the product - you'll definitely want to download the latest version if you've purchased a previous version.

It looks like the big change is the inclusion of the Internet Explorer Mobile 6 which is based off of the desktop Internet Explorer's HTML engine. This would be more exciting if I could install it on my real device but its a great opportunity to test out the new mobile browser.
I'm also hoping this release fixes the DPI bug on the WVGA Windows Mobile Professional emulator.
Grab them here:
So I'm happy to report that the WVGA emulator works. Aswell, the new Pocket Internet Explorer is fantastic! It even supports flash with no addtional downloads. Performance was slow on the emulator so I'd still be very interested to try it on a real device.
A BIG step in the right direction.
