NotepadWS for WM updated

November 8, 2010   By:

tabsp

XDA member xdaid presents an update to NotepadWS for Windows Mobile devices. The application is a great note pad option with tabs, web search, and not memory hungry. Features like edit up to four different text files in the same session, switch from one tab to another with just one click, external clipboard functions added and the ability to add or remove tool bars at any time are some of the changes found on version 2.7.
Each tab has its own font type, size, style and color, background color, start folder and other properties you can configure through the settings page individually.
Working on WM 5 and up and multi resolution from VGA and up.

NotepadWS is a notepad-like application with TABS feature and some interesting tools such as the WEB SEARCH.

The Web Search (context menu) allows you to get google, wiki or dictionary contents about the word or text selected from NotepadWS,
it could be a good way to perform your search quickly and easily!

You can find more information in the application thread.

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

If you would like to contribute and try it out yourself, feel free to join the discussion thread and download it. Report your feedback and bug reports to the developer as usual!

WinStart

If you thought creativity for WM 6 and above was about to die, think again. XDA member petititi has developed a very interesting Start Menu replacement. In fact, because of the animations and transitions used in WinStart, you will be able to appreciate the 3D effects that your devices were meant to use. This particular start menu sort of resembles the app drawer of LauncherPro for Android because of the effects used. The app is very easy to customize and gives the user plenty of freedom and flexibility to rearrange the icons to your liking.

WinStart is still in beta stages, but according to the video that was posted by the dev, it looks pretty solid. The best part is that it will work for any resolution. However, if you find bugs with your specific device, let the developer know.

As you can see in the video, my application is a start menu replacement!
For all screen resolutions (WVGA, VGA, WQVGA, QVGA, square…) and all windows version (after 6.0). You don’t need to have Manila on your phone, but the design is a Manila’s like…

Please report any problems !

Some of xda-developers’ most interesting development projects focus on porting the Google Android operating system to devices that originally run the more outdated versions of Windows Mobile.

Projects such as XDANDROID, which gives users of phones such as the Touch Pro, Touch Diamond, and XPERIA X1 the opportunity to give Android a try, are particularly popular. More recently, major steps forward have been made in running the operating system on the HTC HD2 – arguably the best Windows Mobile 6.x device ever produced.

However, this doesn’t mean that older devices should be left behind. The OPANDROID project was established in order to successfully port Android to the HTC Opal, despite it no longer being in the limelight. Although inital progress is promising, the project is looking for more developing talent to help to get it off the ground.

If you would like to try running Android on your Opal or feel that you could contribute something yourself, visit the project thread.

Avian Player for WM

Avian Player

XDA member thx1200 just released a new kind of media player for WM. Avian seems to specialize in audio rather than anything else and you can use it for podcasts, streaming radio, or as a regular music player. The app differs from others of its kind in the fact that it has a different set of controls for each kind of content you are trying to play. On top of that, the dev has created this with the latest and greatest codecs available to ensure smooth and good quality playback.

The app is fast, slick, and skinnable too, in case you want to integrate it with your device’s look. As always, feedback is very much appreciated.

Features

  • Intuitive, finger-friendly user interface, with seperate control surfaces for each audio file type (music, podcasts, internet radio) with multiple layout scenes per surface
  • Advanced SQL library of music files on your device with customizable queries
  • Tag reading/parsing and tag derived information from paths (\Folder\Artist\Album\Track.mp3)
  • MAD audio codecs
  • Large fonts and titling and large buttons for “car friendliness”
  • Playlist editor
  • Streams can contain multiple alternate URLs in a single entry
  • Immediate list filtering/searching
  • Customizable skins and languages
  • It’s FAST
  • Much more!

When looking through the xda-developers forums, interesting tweaks for your phone’s interface are never hard to find. Originally posted in an EnergyROM thread, XDA member merlin76‘s colourful changes to the default look of HTC Sense were worth sharing on a larger scale.

After receiving inspiration from the coloured tab icons in the Manila build found in the HTC HD Mini ROM, merlin76 felt motivated to port the brighter alternatives to HTC’s regular symbols to some more popular devices.

merlin76′s tab icons should be fully functional with any WVGA-resolution Windows Mobile device and are available to download as a .cab from this post.

Modify Various HTC Sense Icons

October 16, 2010   By:

XDA member and increasingly more well-known graphics modifier davej has recently come up with another addition to his long line of HTC Sense modifications.

davej’s recoloured Contacts and Messaging icons offer a quick solution the problem of your phone’s Sense interface looking stale and tired. The original alternative icons, attached in the thread’s first post, include all of the small, square buttons found in the People tab of Manila. However, davej has frequently updated the thread, adding new modifications along the way such as SMS icons and message avatars.

If you would like to give HTC Sense a new lick of paint, download davej’s icons in .png or .cab format from the original thread.

Those of you who own a non-Snapdragon powered device will be overly popular with one of Windows Mobile’s most-seen animations: the wait cursor. When you’re running your favourite applications or simply trying to send a text message, you know it’s not good news if you see the rotating coloured orbs.

Interestingly, the wait cursor seems to be one of the least-frequently customised aspects of the default Windows Mobile interface. XDA member davej is hoping to change that with the release of an addition package to the popular Marshall WaitCursor 3.0 animation-changing application.

davej’s designs include a rotating, colour-changing globe and the radioactivity label and are sure to bring some originality to your device. Check them out in the modification thread.

Screen04-1

On our main page we always try to bring you the latest news on what´s happening around the big world of XDA, but from time to time we discover some stuff that perhaps is not new but is worth to mention on our portal. This time we bring back a nice theme created by XDA member earni.
An actual and different look on this theme regarding the upper bar for those using previous versions of Manila, you have all the normal information such as battery meter, signal, etc but on a completely different style. Working on VGA and WVGA resolutions running WM6.1 and up.

[THE] Black Kandi [WA3]

Here we have Black Kandi for WVGA Devices Portrait and Landscape supported. I have included both ‘VOLUME’ and ‘LOUD’ buttons in both states, use whichever you prefer.

Requires Wisbar Advanced 3.
When in portrait, you will probably need to disable the clock because if you have more than 4 icons showing the clock goes over the top of the start button. Works fine in landscape though. This is my first full WA3 theme so lots of feedback would be much appreciated.

Originally made VGA now i have added a WVGA version for you people with better devices

Couple of screenshots from my device (VGA):
Please note i only have a VGA Device but this theme is for WVGA

We have not seen too much stuff for non touch screen devices recently. XDA member Thekn presents Thekn Apps , a series of mortscript tweaks to completely customize your Windows Mobile Standard device.
With the developer’s tweaks you´ll be able to modify fonts, icons, and splash screens running WM6.1 and 6.5.
It was tested on Samsung GT-C6625, but I can confirm it´s working on Excalibur and Maple.

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.

what’s new in 0.5 version (big update ever)

New features:

  • statistics for your track (distance, duration, top speed, average speed, top altitude, lowest altitude)
  • power saving: gps sleep & wakeup mode to track walk paths
  • user monitor over cpu, memory and battery status
  • two points distance calculator
  • switch between km/meters and miles/feets units
  • file dialogs and sat viewer improved
  • send your gps location via SMS
  • export tracks (LTF files) to GPX and KML
  • Bugs fixed:
  • several bugs fixed, now LiteTrack is much stable
  • compatibility issues fixed, now LiteTrack supports all kinds of soft-keyboard

Well-finished icons can bring a finishing touch to a well-themed device, but it’s often hard to find a corresponding icon for a relatively unknown application.

Created by XDA member poksh, IconHelper is a building tool that replaces and generates icons for your favourite shortcuts.

The application, which is available both in English and Russian, allows you to apply effects such as transparency and reflection to a start-menu icon simply by holding your finger down on the icon you want to change.

IconHelper is currently only at version 0.14 as its initial release was only a few days ago, but the developer has some interesting features planned for the application’s future. If you would like to try the app out, it is available in the original thread.
