Despite the large number of custom icon sets available today, it seems like we always want more nicely designed new ways of personalize our devices. This time xda member and moderator zelendel created a black set of icons for Windows Mobile. There are more than 150 different black icons including youtube, adobe, messenger and many more to choose from.
Whether you like them or not, this new set that increases the great collection we have so far thanks to the efforts of many members at XDA.

If you are one of those users who are simply not satisfied with your media management application in your computer, then you have to take a look at Hydros Media Center. This application is an interesting alternative to Active Sync (or WMDC if you are on Vista or later) for managing your media files on your Windows Mobile device.
Despite still being on alpha stage, this app, which was created by xda member rkrishnan2012, has many options to play with. For instance, it presents us with a Zune 4.0 type of interface for easy flow between screens and ease of transfer files onto the device.

For those of you who don’t know what im doing, im trying to make an efficient media player for windows which interacts with windows mobile nicely. As a model, im using many things and features which have been included in Zune Software 4.0. Anyway, I have been working on this alone for a long time and I think it’s time to reveal this to the public for some help as well. I would like to post the source code somewhere but im not sure exactly what the process is so please help me on that if you can.
Features so far:
- Music Library
- Pictures Library
- Apps Bazaar
- oms Bazaar (only for LG Incite so far -due to my lack of knoledge in xda roms-)
- Device Support [NEW for Alpha release 4] – you can add and remove songs now
- You can now delete files [New to Alpha release 4] – works now
Alpha Release 4 – 5/20/10
- Added the ability to add and remove songs in library and device library
- Fixed the comment dialog to show up (it notifies you of any things that are important…like a device being connected)
- Still uses activesync dll so you still need activesync to be installed (and I can’t distribute the dll due to legal issues).
You can find more information in the application thread.
Mosatse is a sexy game that is a big success amongst iPhone users; now member y2ksatan presents this transplanted game for Windows Mobile. This is not an X-rated application, but its content has some decent nudity in it, so please be aware of this in case you or those around you have objections against this.
The game includes some pre loaded models on it, but you have the option of adding your personal models.
To run just unzip the file directly to your Windows Mobile device and execute the .exe, the0ne has posted a video of the game.

A few months ago member AndyZap presented version 3 of this GPS sports application for Windows Mobile touch screen devices.
One of the best things to talk about this GPS tool is the good graphic design it has, some other features are auto pause, time and distance tracking and map display (offline caching of maps).
Definitely a fresh good looking option for enjoying your GPS.

Yet Another GPS Tracker? – yes, but:
- this is a nice one – thanks to excellent design by expo7! And you can set your custom background and button images;
- can select GPS run interval: from “always on” to “run every 10 min” – this is useful if you want to reduce battery power usage;
- has usual cycle computer display: time, distance, speed (current, average, max) plus a graph of your track.
The tool logs GPS data into a binary file (so a lot of data can be stored in a compact form), which can be loaded back for viewing, or saved into .kml / .gpx file to view in e.g. GoogleEarth. With the latest version of GoogleMaps, you can view KML files on your phone. Just click on a kml file in file explorer. Note there is a bug in the latest GoogleMaps installation, so KML files does not work – read the manual how to fix this.
What you need to download (go for the latest version!) :
- GpsCycleComputer_X.XX.cab – the application itself. To install, copy CAB into your phone, and click on it from your phone File Explorer. The manual (file called Readme.htm) is installed on your phone, in the same folder as the application. E.g. if you install into “Internal Storage” on English Windows, the path to the application will be \Internal Storage\Program Files\GpsCycleComputer.
- GpsCycleComputerSource_X.XX.zip – A complete source code in C#, uses CF .NET 2.0. Feel free to change anything you like!

Lately on XDA, the Windows Mobile side of the forum seems dominated by all things GTX, and for good reason. This is by far one of the most popular themes ever to have graced the Windows Mobile platform and owners of WVGA devices can now enjoy the unique GTX look while making a call.
cymlxgo has recently created a phone canvas skin that matches the grey-on-white style of the original GTX Sense 2.5 theme. It replaces the traditional colours of the buttons found on the Manila-integrated dialer only – not the standard Windows Mobile canvas with rounded buttons – although most custom ROMs will already be using such a dialer.
At present, WVGA is the only resolution available, although this should satisfy owners of devices such as the Touch Pro2, Touch Diamond2, Touch HD and HD2 which have a suitably sized screen.
Check out this post to try it for yourself.
Windows Mobile users need more options to make their Windows Mobile experience even better, and with the new powerful devices this is increasing every day. One example of this is the ExtendedFileExplorerExt cab.
Member aestivalisakito has successfully combined FileExplorerExt 2.07 and ExplorerExt into one cab file, adding more options when displaying your file explorer. This app is presented to Developers to cook in their ROMs and also to end users.

I am actually planning on making this a full UI mod eventually including tweaking for the abnormally large menus in wm 6.5
Want to say that this is merely the combination of two VERY excellent additions to file explorer for WM. Those are: FileExplorerExt 2.07 by Hou Ming and ExplorerExt by RAMMANN. So credit goes completely and totally to them.I just combined the two into a single cab. Package version for cooks is attached as well.

- Opens with the parameter (exe files only)
- Copy Path: Copy to clipboard full path names of selected files
- Send a shortcut to the program (exe file only) Shortcut to \ Windows \ Start Menu \ Programs Create

It has never been so easy to share your internet connection with other devices on Window Mobible. This under estimated tool that comes in almost any phone has many other great ways to share connections that we don´t even know exist. A couple of years ago member lysdexical created this app that unlocks the real potential of Internet sharing. Among other connection types, you can find: VPN to Wifi, Wifi to Bluetooth, Wifi to USB, etc. It´s worthwhile to bring back this old app back to life as it’s still actual and very useful.

ICS Control is a GUI front-end for Internet Connection Sharing, a component of Microsoft Windows Mobile. It can be configured to do a variety of things including sharing your cellular internet connection over an adhoc WiFi network.
Requirements: .NET Compact Framework 2.0 and Windows Mobile 5 or later with the IPNAT driver included (most WM6 builds have this built-in). The “Internet Sharing” application that some phones have is not required, but IPNAT is.
ICSControl is a single .exe file, included in the zip file below. You can place it directly in /Windows/Start Menu/Programs/ on your device and it will appear as an icon in Programs. Or you can place it elsewhere and create a shortcut.
Comments, bug reports, and requests are welcome.
- Added host names from DHCP leases to DMZ and InternalHost dropdown lists.
- DHCP Lease editing is completed.
- Virtual Server (aka incoming port mapping) configuration is completed.
- Application definitions (aka outgoing port triggers) configuration is completed.
- Added really simple icons.
- Attempts to accomodate weird ipnat driver configurations.
- Other minor changes/fixes.

The user plays as a penguin and controls it with accelerometer: the task is to jump from one ice platform to another, avoiding sharks, bears and other dangerous but rather sweet-looking creatures. The platforms can move, break or push the player forward; there is also a good variety of bonuses. The highest scores are displayed on the global chart!
Key features of Groovy Jump Free
- Addictive gameplay;
- Accelerometer-based control;
- Different kinds of platforms, monsters, bonuses;
- Free of charge.
- 2800 score maximum
In the nearest future the game will be enriched with new skins, monsters, levels and challenges.
- WM5 / WM6 /WM6.1 / WM6.5
- VGA / QVGA / WVGA / WQVGA / SVGA / SQVGA
- .NET Compact Framework 2.0 (for settings only)
