Control Your Windows 6.5.x X Button

Still in the beta stages the application created by XDA’s own xtep is an amazing add-on to your Windows Mobile 6.5.x device.  If you, like me, are a little upset that Microsoft has taken the memory management control into their own hands then this is definitely worth taking a look at.  Not only is the control of the X button yours again, but so are some other very useful features.  And with the help of scarecrow420 it now has a nice User Interface.
