Game Changers – HTC Home

htc-home-plugin

The recent XDA TV article by Azrienoch & cajunflavouredbob reminded me of the old days, when the HTC logo looked like this. Because of this, I was reminded of some of the old things released that really changed how we use and view our devices and also changed what we came to expect from the device manufacturers.

The first game changer I want to look at is HTC Home. This was the first incarnation of what would eventually come to be HTC Sense. It ran on windows mobile as a plug-in for the home screen and instead of displaying widgets that can be freely moved around to suit the users needs, it displayed one of 5 or 6 things on half the screen.

The first was the “home” tab, this displayed a large digital style clo. . . READ ON »

flick

XDA member antru has developed a very cool app for Windows Mobile. The app is a 3D task manager that is comparable to switching between active windows on Windows 7 or Vista. The app allows you to flick through running windows and open them with a single tap. It runs very fast as shown in the video and is still experimental.

You must have WM >= 5.0 to run it and hardware accelerated 3D Graphics. It uses 1 MB per window task also. The list of currently tested devices is:

1. HTC Max 4G
2. HTC Touch Diamond (to slow yet)
3. HTC Touch HD
4. Dell Axim x51v
5. Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2

Know Your Way Around with LiteTrack for WM

litetrack0.5

You may remember a few months ago, we released an article about a tracking software for Windows Mobile called LiteTrack, developed by XDA member xdaid. In case you are not sure what this those, basically the app runs in the background while using the GPS in your device (assuming it has one) and tracks all your trips. Basically, it maps whatever routes you take to wherever you go. This is particularly useful for people who tend to look for shortcuts from traffic and then simply forget them.

This new version of the app has been loaded with new features and a few critical bug fixes as well. So, if you were using it before, upgrade to 0.5 and find out what else this app has to offer. Feedback is always appreciated.
