ppc-device-emulator-hd2-skin-small

If you are familiar with Microsoft Device Emulator and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 tools, then you will find the work of XDA member FreeDee regarding renewing the default outdated image neat. Also, we have new features like WVGA Emulator window and support of FullHD (or higher). 32 and 64 bit Windows OS are supported.

[Emulator Skin] HTC HD2 Emulator Skin for Device Emulator / Visual Studio Designer

Hey,

this is my first contribution here on xda-developers and I hope you like it.

Overview
I’ve created a new skin for Microsoft Device Emulator and the designer view of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (2005). It is based on the HTC HD2 device and it looks so much more appealing than the outdated Pocket PC skin that the emulator / vs uses by default.
In addition to the improved looks, the skin offers more advantages:
The WVGA Emulator window now vertically fits on your desktop when using FullHD (1920×1080) resolution (or higher).
You have most of the buttons that modern devices use available: Send, Home, Start Menu, Back, End.
Modernized Windows Mobile application development/debugging experience.
(I know of the imminent release of the first Windows Phone devices, but I’m sure development for WM will continue for quite a while, especially on xda-developers. )

You can find more information in the application thread.

RSS

It was requested many times in the past, and not too long ago, the RSS feeds for either WM or Android were implemented. What does this mean? You can get up to the minute information about your favorite community. You will get instant notifications of any news that come out in the Portal, the moment they come out.

The process is simple, just grab either one of the following addresses and depending on your OS, simply put it in the RSS reader of your choice.

For Android: http://www.xda-developers.com/tag/all-android/feed/

For Windows Mobile: http://www.xda-developers.com/tag/all-windows-mobile/feed/

If you are into getting the good stuff on your mobile device, make sure that you get this set up soon!

Advertisment
lotto

If you are one of the millions who play the lotto regularly, you may soon realize that picking numbers is not something you want to take lightly. With this in mind, XDA member savrix85 has developed an app for WM that will do just that. It randomly picks a set of 6 numbers between 1 and 49. The app is light and simple to use, so if you are tired of using the same numbers over and over again, let your WM device try your luck. Who knows? Maybe you will hit the jackpot with the device that you cherish so much.

Make sure that you leave some feedback for the developer as further improvements can probably be done to the app.

New lottery app, WMLotto649! This app helps you choose 6 numbers ranging from 1 to 49.
It works same as the other ones: tap on the Generate button to have the series of six numbers to play.

Use it to play with several national lotteries, such as:

  • UK Lotto – UK
  • Lotto 649 – Canada
  • La Primitiva – Spain
  • Lotto 649 – Greece
  • Mark Six – Hong Kong
  • Loto 6/49 – Turkey
  • Euroworld Lotto, Megabucks, Go Lotto – Liechtenstein
  • Duzy Lotek – Poland
  • South African Lotto – South Africa
  • and others…

amazonit13

Not too long ago, an app surfaced for WM that did what many popular apps for Android and iPhone do – read bar codes and look for pricing for items on the web. The app, known as AmazonIt!, has been worked on extensively by XDA member zaijian who just released v 1.3. In case you are not aware of what it does, as previously stated, the app is used to scan bar codes, which are then compared to item numbers in Amazon. Very useful to see if you are getting a good deal… or not.

This version of the app has had many bug fixes since v1.0, which among other things include better scrolling and the ability to recognize ISBN numbers (serial numbers for books). Also, it is now compatible with Amazon websites in many parts of the world.

1.3 Features

  • Scan, load, or input UPC/EAN barcodes, ISBN, ASIN
  • Retrieve product info, prices, and ratings from Amazon.com
  • Launch product link in your mobile browser
  • Send product information via email

CleanRAM Just Updated to 2.3

September 13, 2010   By:

cleanram

Quite possibly one of the best apps available today to keep your device running smoothly just got updated. XDA member ronenpg just released an update to his famous cleanRAM  app for Windows Mobile. In case you are not familiar with it, the app is used to reclaim program memory from apps running in the background that either do not need to be running or that simply doesn’t close completely upon exit. A nice side effect of this app, is that if there are non responding programs, this app will close them and save you from having to do a hard reset, which is a nice perk if you have devices like the HD2 where the reset button is under the battery cover.

The new update includes a few bug fixes as well as compatibility improvements with other UIs such as Wisbar Advanced Desktop. Try it for yourself and see how you like it.

Changelog:

  • Add language strings: “Show Black Curtain”, “WisBar Advance Desktop” and
    “Infinity” (see post
    #3)
  • cleanRAM is now supporting “WisBar Advance Desktop” and “Ageye Infinity”
    GUI cleaning.
  • Add “Show Black Curtain” option to settings menu – this option allows you to
    put a black curtain while cleaning.
  • Fixed the freezing issue while GUI cleaning. now cleanRAM is more stable!

Now that the football season is well underway, you’ll need a way to keep up with your team in the league.  If you follow the French league then Ligue 1 Pocket 2010 may be just the app that you’re looking for.

Developed by XDA forum members zorro1981, cua-tro and with graphics by chinubrio, the Windows Mobile application provides all you need to know about the French league, including a Live mode where you can be advised of more important events during a match.

Ligue 1 Pocket 2010 keeps you up to date with results, and information on team changes.

The application supports multiple languages and all displays.

Requires a data connection.

For more information including download links, head on over to the application thread.

There are a few keyboard options around for Windows Mobile devices, but there are limited options that make it easier for you to use on smaller screens.

ZoomKey developed by XDA forum member pmprog is intended to make the keyboard easier for use with thumbs/fingers on the smaller screens, by combining two keys together.

Once you press on one of the ‘dual keys’, it will zoom in. Whilst your finger is still on the key, slide it to the left side or the right side of the enlarged key.  When you lift your finger it will enter the key that your finger was on.

ZoomKey SIP is currently in alpha, and hence there may be bugs.  The dev is intending to add an option to set the custom height for the SIP area, so if you use a WQVGA device, you can allocate more space to the SIP.

Other future development options include multiple skin support, multiple character set support, and tap to zoom.

For more information and to download the alpha, visit the application thread.

Contacts ‘FileAs’ Bulk Changer

September 12, 2010   By:

mobile5

If you’ve ever experienced the tedious task of having to change all your contacts one by one so that they appear as ‘Firstname, Lastname’ in the Windows Mobile contact application, then you might be interested in this application.

XDA forum member ristiisa recently synced his mobile device with gmail and discovered that some of his contacts had changed to display as ‘Lastname, Firstname’.  Since there were more than a few that needed to be changed back, the XDA member went searching for an app that could do this in bulk.

Surprisingly ristiisa could not find a freeware application, and hence decided to write his own with the added option to display a nickname if applicable.

Requires .Net CF 3.5.

To download the application, check out the forum thread.  The dev has uploaded both a binary and source to the post.

A New Game Concept for WM – Wheel

September 11, 2010   By:

wheel

XDA member RDT has created a game for WM that anyone with a Windows powered device can enjoy (even those of you still sporting a Wallaby or a Toshiba e740. The game is called Wheel and the basic objective of this game is to control a little robotic wheel to collect stars while running away from a space demon. The demon will try to take your hard earned stars so you have to try and outrun it before it reaches you. The game uses the multi-touch SDK released not too long ago, which enables old resistive screens to have multi-touch capabilities.

The game seems fun and quite addictive, but if you think that it could use some other improvements, please be sure to let the dev know.

Let me introduce you my new platform game for Windows Mobile, playable at Pocket PC 2002 and above (yes, really). I’m not a big fan of apps that works on one display resolution only, so the game is screen resolution independent (you can play on QVGA or WQVGA), however it looks best on the HVGA, VGA and WVGA screens.

The most important is that you can press more than one virtual button on you classic resistive screen (as it was capacitive), which makes this type of game comfortably playable even without hardware buttons. Nice, isn’t it?

You can find more information in the game thread.

If you are an old time Windows Mobile User, the old Home Screen is something that you probably remember from a long time ago. The advent of all the different UIs has left the Home Screen a smudge in the memory of WM history. If you are into retro a bit, check out this mod that XDA member pietsukkel brings for us.

Installation of this creates an extra tab in Sense/Manila that displays good old fashioned Home. In there, you can have all your favorite today plugins that you miss from the old UI. Take it for a spin and see if you like it.

Manila Today Page was originally created for people who are using applications with Today screen plug-ins. When you use Manila or Sense, you are no longer able to display the old Today screen. MTP installs an extra tab, containing your Today screen plug-ins.
This is a modified version of MTP, compatible with EnergyROM’s.

You can find more information in the tab page.
