Good News for Dutch Members: Hyves Application Released for WM
When you are Dutch (like me), it’s highly possible that you’re familiar with Hyves. For other members that are curious to know what it is, here’s Wikipedia’s explanation:
Originally written by Wikipedia
Hyves is a free Dutch social networking site online since October 2004. (…) The focus of the website is on keeping in touch with existing friends and making new friends. There is no need to know HTML for creating a Hyve. It is comparable with other social networking sites. Users can create personalized pages of themselves with rich media content, such as photos, videos, flash content and custom layouts.
It’s essentially a Dutch version of Facebook. Now, there are a lot of Dutch people that have been waiting for Hyves for Windows Mobile. Luckily, it’s now available thanks to XDA member Reaper, who reported about this application, which allows you to do a lot of things: you can look up your Pings, Scraps, Buzz’s, albums, profile, and a lot more!
Unfortunately, it’s only available for devices with a WVGA screen. You’ll also need to have .NET Compact Framework 3.5 installed to get it working.
Continue on to the application thread for more information (in Dutch), and a link to the developers site!
