Another funny game for those of you who let your kids play with your expensive toys, or if you simply are an 80´s child – is presented by XDA member savrix85.
The game features two modes (Arcade and Time Attack), where you have to hit down the kitties when showing on the window to advance to the next levels of the game. You can set on easy, medium, or hard as well as adjusting the duration in seconds.
The game can be found in Italian and English and will work on multiple resolutions and Windows Mobile 5 and up. Our dear friend and XDA member The0ne published a video here.

Role-playing game fans among you may remember Tetra Master, one of the highlights of the small set of mini-games included within the legendary Final Fantasy 9 game for the PlayStation console. If this game means anything to you, then you may be pleased to learn that XDA member zyphuris55 has just ported Tetra Master to the Windows Mobile platform.
The card-based game is one of the most popular from the Final Fantasy franchise despite its baffling instructions manual. zyphuris55 has rectified this by improving upon the original manual and incorporating it into his application, allowing completely new players to get to grips with the game in a matter of minutes.
Although still in the early stages of development, the game is definitely worth checking out if you are a fan of RPGs or would simply like to try a new card game. Available in the game thread, it currently only supports WVGA resolution touchscreen devices but the developer hopes to support VGA soon.

As his first contribution to the XDA community, member xdaid has created a very useful application which makes the most of your Windows Phone’s GPS capabilities.
LiteTrack allows you to record and store paths and journeys as you take them; ready for playing back when you want to take the same route again. Such a function is ideal for someone who frequently travels ‘off the map’ with regard to traditional GPS mapping applications. For example, a much-enjoyed walking route is very difficult to plan on turn-by-turn navigational software.
The application uses the OpenStreetMap repository, so that you can update and add to your library of maps without having to pay a fee. This also means that you can use the application without a data connection provided that you have already downloaded the relevant maps. Some of the information that LiteTrack is capable of recording includes your altitude, speed, heading, latitude and longitude to reassure you that you won’t get lost.
This app will work with your device provided that you it has GPS capabilities, a WVGA or VGA touchscreen, Windows Mobile 5.0 or later and .NET Compact Framework version 3.5.
You can find LiteTrack and more information in the original application thread.
If you work for someone, your boss probably has someone hired to do their chores. You know, all those tedious tasks like taking down memos, sending out e-mails, and of course, taking the calls of whoever is trying to get in touch with you. Thanks to XDA member zaijian, anyone with a WM phone can have one. Mobile Receptionist, as its name implies, is a program that handles tasks that are assigned to it. It can do anything from sending e-mails, forward SMS, and yes, even answer your calls. No more sneaking out of meetings to answer the phone simply to tell them that you will call them back. The app was recently updated and includes a few improvements. However, the app is still under testing, so not all options are available at the moment. The only drawback about this app is that it will not be able to make you coffee
What It Does
Mobile Receptionist is a program for your Windows Mobile 5.0+ phone that can handle incoming call, SMS, and email notifications, and execute actions depending on a set of criteria.
How It Works
You configure the Mobile Receptionist via Profiles. Profiles handle incoming events and phone status changes.
Multiple profiles can be enabled simultaneously. For example, you could have one profile automatically forward all incoming SMS messages to an email address for archiving, and another one that responds to all SMS messages and incoming calls while you’re at work.
The Full Profile has Rules. Each Rule contains Criteria and Actions. If all the Critiera are met, then all the Actions are executed. There are also Criteria for the Profile, which apply globally to all Rules in the Profile.
The Full Profile has complete functionality and flexibility of Rules, Criteria, and Actions – but there are also specialized Profile types that are streamlined and easier to configure:
A Sms Responder Profile only handles incoming calls/sms and responds to the original caller.
A Event Monitor Profile only monitors events and sends notifications to a set address.
A Blacklist Profile only ignores or hangs up on certain numbers or contacts.
A Remote Control Profile allows remote control of the phone. Send SMS, get GPS coordinates, disable/enable profiles, look up contact information, etc.
Watching a movie: set up rules to respond to missed calls and text messages with an SMS saying you’re unavailable and will get back to them later.
Archiving: set up rules to forward all text messages to your email account.
Multiple phones: if you have a work phone and a personal phone, after working hours you could set up rules on your work phone to send SMS to your personal phone if the call/message is urgent.
Remote notification: If you’re entering a secure building where you can’t bring your phone, but have internet access, set up rules to send you an email every time you missed a call, got a text message, have an upcoming appointment.
You can find more information in the application thread.
Picture the scenario – you have a meeting so you put your phone in silent mode. You leave the meeting and go about your daily work. Later when you get home, you realise you have 100 missed calls from your girlfriend/boyfriend and some irate text messages.
We’ve all done it – forgotten to turn up the volume on your Windows Mobile device.
XDA member thx1200 has the answer to all your problems – well this one anyway. Thx1200 has developed Mute4 – a simple application that allows you to set your phone to vibrate or silent, and then also set a timeout for when you want to restore the original volume profile via the system timer. The app includes default timeouts of 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, and 3 hours. However, Mute4 also lets you set custom timeouts by editing the settings.ini file.
Mute4 is compatible with Windows Mobile 5.0, 6.0 and 6.5.

A simple image editor like Microsoft Paint always comes in handy when you want to make changes to an image quickly or do a quick sketch without being buried alive under the overwhelming and often unnecessary range of features offered by high-end photoshopping software.
XDA member menos has created just such a handy editing tool, but for use on our mobiles. Through the Paint Now! application, you can add shapes, doodles and effects to pictures stored on your Windows Phone without having to be near a computer. Paint Now! also lets you rotate, crop and flip images before being given the choice to convert them to a more suitable file type.
The app doesn’t ask for much to run – just a touchscreen device running Windows Mobile 5 or higher and .NET Compact Framework version 3.5. Pick it up in the application thread.
Curs Valutar, created by XDA developer virgilp, is an application that allows you to convert currencies, such as from USD to EUR. It also shows official exchange rates, automatic updating system and more.

Curs Valutar – exchange rates and currency converter for Windows Mobile, based on the rates provided by the National Bank of Romania.
- Official exchange rates from the National Bank of Romania
- Currency converter
- Choice of the displayed currencies
- Romanian/English interface
- Automatic/manual update of the exchange rates
- In automatic mode, the update of the exchange rates is performed once a day, Monday to Friday, at the first launch of the application after 1 PM (that’s when the rates are updated by the bank). The data is saved locally and loaded on subsequent launches of the application, in order to decrease the response time and avoid unnecessary traffic.
- In manual mode, the update is performed only by user request
In order to get this working on your device, you need a Windows Mobile 5 or higher platform phone, a data connection and .NET Compact Framework 3.5. All resolutions should be supported.
You can download the application from the application thread.
TrashKalmar‘s very popular anti-theft app, CrimsonLock, has very recently been updated. Along with critical bug and error fixes, the most important addition to the already mature application is support for the HTC HD2 – a much begged-for addition since the phone became one of the most popular Windows Mobile devices on the market.
If you haven’t already heard of it, CrimsonLock is designed to maximize the chances of your phone being returned to you in the case of theft. Through sending a specific code to the phone via SMS, it is possible to regain control of the device. If this doesn’t happen, it will at least make using the phone a nightmare for whoever was stupid enough to steal it.
The application tracks phone calls, SMS messages, soft resets and switching off GSM phone bands, and will detect when a different SIM card is inserted into the device (multi-SIM users needn’t worry as support for several cards has been integrated).
Once control is regained, the original owner can choose to block texts and calls to and from the phone or to switch the phone module off completely. Additionally, you can have fun messing with the alarm, SD card formatting and keypad lock settings to make the thief’s life a living hell. After the app recognizes the original user’s number as a trusted number as set during setup, it is possible to force-call the thief and even to switch the speakerphone on. The owner can also request for GPS co-ordinates to be sent to their replacement phone if the original device supports it.
These are only a few of the features available through the app – the rest can be found along with the download link in the application thread. All resolutions except square QVGA are supported, and any device running WM5+ should work fine with the app.
iAgenda is a finger-friendly and easy-to-use alternative to the standard calendar and tasks applications in Windows Mobile. It is developed by ajige and fully skinnable. This update mainly fixes issues with all-day and multi-day appointments, and the marking of tasks as complete or uncomplete on WM 6.5. Further, the settings program has been integrated into the tabbed interface.

Since the original developer seems to have abandoned this project, I’m starting a new thread and continuing the development. As per request, I’ll upload new versions as they are developed, even if only minor. That also means, there is an increased risk of system crashes.
Version 0.49 April 14, 2010
- Added weekday to group headers
- New default skin by Livven
- Option in Settings to choose start screen
- Added enable checkbox to Settings for those who have issues with the checkboxes crashing
- Tried another bugfix for the checkbox (please let me know if it works)
