You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

Chuck Norris Facts App Finally Comes to Windows Mobile
Since Windows Mobile was born, we’ve had to cope with useless applications such as browsers, document editors and navigation software. They just fill up the storage on our devices, never being used as we wait for something really essential to come along.
Thankfully, Reaper has put an end to this depressing era by creating an app that truly matters. We’ve all been there: standing at a party, watching the funny guys getting all the attention while having nothing to say yourself. Inside, you’re screaming “If only I could access Chuck Norris facts from my Windows Phone!”, but there has never before been a developer there to hear you.
The Chuck Norris Facts app allows you to catch up on the freshest, funniest and most original Chuck Norris one-liners without having to be near a PC. It’s lightweight and effective, and even gives you the option to send the facts in an SMS message to a similarly minded friend.
At present, only WVGA resolution devices are supported. The app requires .NET CF v3.5 and Windows Mobile 6.5 (although Reaper is yet to test it on 6.1 – it may well be functional) and can be found in the application thread.

In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
