ArkSwitch v1.0.1: An Easy Task Manager

With the coming of new Windows Mobile Builds that move the Start button to the bottom task-bar, the default HTC Task Manager becomes unusable.

User Arktronic decided to make a new Task Manager himself, to overcome these new compatibility problems. Not only does ArkSwitch offer a good finger friendly interface, it also gives you the possibility to get a little more information about applications memory usage and its whereabouts.

You can add your own exclusive programs to not show up in the Task Manager.

So I made my own!

VERY IMPORTANT! This application is NOT intended for the original WM6.5 or below. Only for WM6.5.1 and above! If you use it with WM6.5 or below, your device may become unstable.

This is version 1.0.1, a beta-quality release of ArkSwitch. To open it, simply click the left half of the top bar. The right half still has the normal WM6.5.x icon enlargement functionality.

ArkSwitch can be opened from any screen that has the top bar visible – I tried to make it simple yet unobtrusive.
You can click the text of an app to bring it to the foreground, click the icon to view the App Info screen, or click the red “X” to close it.

Application thread can be found here.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
