Dialer Alternative for WQVGA Devices

rom2

Due to being one of the less common screen resolutions, applications and modifications tailored specifically for WQVGA (around 400 by 240 pixels) devices are hard to find. In addition, the lowered screen real estate makes the transfer of applications designed for devices with larger screens look messy and non-functional.

XDA member Rugal has recently created one of the only resolution-specific dialer alternatives for WQVGA devices such as the Samsung Omnia i900. The Mini-Lite Dialer is a 2G phone canvas designed to increase the finger-friendliness of your phone’s call-making functionality without removing popular features.

The phone canvas is available to download and try in the dialer thre. . . READ ON »

Safely Put your Phone Away with SmartLock

smart

There are several lockers out there with several different types of functionalities. In this case, XDA member tarantula78 brings us this handy little new concept of locker for our devices. This program uses the light sensor equipped on many of the newer devices to determine whether the phone is inside your pocket. If it determines that this is the case, it will place an overlay screen on top of your home screen, with a three touch pattern to unlock it.

The program is in the beginning stages, so expect a few bugs here and there. Having said that, the dev is expecting to create new versions as bugs are discovered and fixed.

Anyhoo this is the point of the app: I dont like to lock my phone with the password all the time as i usu

GTX Playing Ball With WQVGA

While many of you might be loving your GTX themed WVGA devices, the rest of the WQVGA world has been quietly watching with envy, until now. This recent post by XDA member MatG, shows how he has managed to port just about all the graphics you need to have a fully working WQVGA M2D home screen. While many people might ask why you would want something like this on a device with as little power as the Omnia or the Incite, it is the very  same reason why I wanted it on my Touch Pro2 even when it froze.  It simply looks good.

Hey everyone. After some worka at modaco i want to share my work with members of xda.
So here is my work. I give you fully animated GTX clock and full theme for m2d v2 + some extra wallpapers… It’s a

Auto-Rotate Config App

Screen01

XDA member junalmeida developed this application for Windows Mobile to Auto-rotate on devices equipped with a G-sensor. It will configure your registry settings using very low memory as it´s not resident. This is ideal for those of you who don´t have it cooked on your ROM.
This app works on Leo and Omnia II running WM 6.5, but should work as well in other newer devices, .NET 2.0 is also needed.
Users are invited to report bugs and/or ask for features.

Originally posted by junalmeida
Auto-Rotate can configure the registry settings of built-in g-sensor auto-rotate service.
This app is not resident, so, it consumes memory only when you are configuring rotation support.

Pre-requisites
.NET 2.0
Omnia II, or

Singapore Bus Time Widget v 1.4.7 for Winmo

2010-02-24_02-42-43-PM-1

XDA forum member afoongwl215 couldn’t find a bus time arrival widget for windows mobile in the MarketPlace so he has developed one himself.

The widget provides a quick check on bus arrival times in Singapore rather than having to fire up your browser.  It queries and parses the bus times from two websites, but the benefit is that you don’t need to pinch and zoom to read the times. Just click on a stop name and add as a bookmark.

Requires the Widget Engine to be installed on your rom. Confirmed to be working on HTC HD2. Planned features include favourites (routes) and road name search.

For more information and to download the widget, check out the application thread.. . . READ ON »
