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.

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.

now it must be bug free! Also the Tweaks by Thekn v1.0 has some delay
because I wanted to add the Font Changer in it but I finished the Font
Changer about a minute ago! So the Tweaks by Thekn App will be
released in a couple of days!

This Program let you change the System Font. The downloaded .rar file

Microsoft have always tried to establish a separation between non-touchscreen Smartphones and touchscreen PocketPCs. By doing so, they have allowed themselves to also segregate the two groups’ software and to give that of each different features. Smartphones were branded separately to PocketPCs when they first arrived – they were more suited for communication, and were more like a cross between a PocketPC and a traditional feature phone. The PocketPC was capable of more due to its more advanced hardware and higher popularity and was seen as a phone for the business environment.

As a result of this rift between the two lines of products, their operating systems are quite contrasting. While PocketPC owners regularly received the newest builds straight from Microsoft, which include the most recent additions and fixes, Smartphone owners were always somewhat left behind.

This is particularly obvious in the case of Windows Mobile 6.5: Microsoft have marketed the Smartphone version of the OS as ‘Standard’ and the PocketPC as ‘Professional’. However, in many cases the internal hardware of the Smartphones are up to scratch with the requirements of the Professional version of WM6.5, with only their lack of a touchscreen holding them back.

To highlight this, XDA member tj_style has managed to get one of the more recent builds of the popular Windows Mobile 6.5.3 operational on a non-touchscreen Samsung GT-6625. Although developmentally young, the project is very interesting and a downloadable ROM should hopefully be made available to the XDA community soon.

Included in the port of WM6.5.3 are the instantly recognisable buttons-at-bottom layout and the Titanium home screen interface (a cursor is used) along with other improvements Microsoft have made. In porting this previously exclusive operating system to a Smartphone, tj_style opens the door to a vast number of possibilites for non-touchscreen chefs. To find out more about this project (and to view an evidential video of the port at work), take a look at this thread.

Sense Hero Theme for Smartphones

July 28, 2010   By:

For those members using QVGA devices with non touch screen, this great theme presented by XDA member gtg465x will be of your liking. Based on the Hero Sense, this new UI will completely change your WM home screen and will make your WM look like Android. Everything is working on it, including weather panel as the developer wrote it from scratch.
Working for Windows Mobile Standard 6.1 or 6.5.
Please leave feedback so developer can fix any bugs found.

Well, I’ve had a lot of free time on my hands lately and this is the result. I’ll probably be ditching my Blackjack II in about a month when I’m eligible for an upgrade, but I had to make one last theme for it.

As far as I’m aware, there are no other sliding panel themes like this for Windows Mobile Standard, and yes, the weather works! I had to write my own application for the weather (edit: and for the clock… I tried just using the HTC font for the clock but it didn’t look that great). Since it’s a sliding panel theme, there are of course pretty sliding animations when navigating around the home screen.

You can find more information in the theme thread.

Do you have a non touch screen Windows Mobile device?, You must agree not too much development is happening with those smarphones. However, XDA member gtg465x got tired of that and created a new theme for QVGA Landscape devices running WM6.1 and 6.5.
The theme has great graphics and fonts and it will give your device a breath of fresh air.

Critiques are encouraged!

mala

XDA member necrotek has released the first version of MalaTouch, a prayer bead counting application for the Windows Mobile platform. Mala is a set of beads used by members of the Hindu and Buddhist faiths for keeping count when performing a religious recital.

The app is very easy to use: simply tap the beads for the count to increase by one, with the total resetting at 108 (as is traditional for mala). However, what makes the application truly stand out are the visuals: the unusual wire-frame beads are given a three-dimensional effect with the help of your phone’s tilt sensor. The application will also store the last total when you quit it, allowing you to pick up where you left off the next time. Vibration feedback is also included and the app supports both touchscreen and non-touchscreen devices.

The .cab is available via the download link in the application thread.

The ever-growing, ever-changing nature of Facebook, the world’s most popular social networking site, means that developers of associated applications have to release updates very often. One such app, Facebook Instant Messenger for Windows Mobile, has recently been refined to encompass the most recent additions to the website.

Although the changes are fairly minor, the constant developing attention focussed by XDA member blutz upon the application and the usefulness of the program itself make it worth taking a look at. Originally designed to allow smartphone users to use the site’s instant messaging capabilities on the move, the app has since grown and now supports status updates, notification and message indicators and mobile picture and video uploads. Facebook Instant Messenger even includes a CHome (Windows Titanium/Standard layout) plugin so that you can access your news feed without even launching a separate window.

You can give the application a try by following the download link in the application thread.

QVGA Landscape for WMStd 6.1|6.5

What happened to old devices running Windows Mobile Standard edition? In fact, there are a lot of people running devices like Excalibur or Vox, just to mention a few. Well, this theme will raise your hopes and inject new life into your devices.
XDA member gtg465x just released a great looking theme for QVGA resolutions with a Sense like style.
Now you can have weather on your home screen very similar to Sense. This theme comes with its own package of wallpapers and icons.
This is an initial release, so bugs are expected and feedback is much appreciated by developer.

Status Update (6/9/2010)
I’ve discovered several bugs and will be looking into fixing them over the weekend. Here are the bugs I will be working on…
The clock and weather applications both have minor memory leaks that can lead to a crash after they’ve been running for a while.
Notifications sometimes disappear when the clock is updated.
The clock panel steals focus from the notifications and program links panels when it’s updated.
The clock sometimes takes longer than I’de like to update when resuming from the screen off state.
The weather application can’t be installed to storage card.

GPS Weather Radar

March 22, 2010   By:

GPSWR

If you travel a lot and knowing the weather is a must for you, or you just like to check up from time to time and know what the weather radar looks like, then you should take a look at this app.  Created by avs777 a little while ago, this app is a great addition to your WinMo app list.

The app supports a wide variety of WinMo phones only requiring that you have WinMo 6 or higher and NETCF 3.5.  Don’t have a touch screen, WM Professional, GPS?  You don’t need them!  It will work with TouchScreen, Non TouchScreen, WM Professional, WM Standard, and non GPS enabled phones (using cell towers instead to get a good estimate on your location).

Features:

- Gets weather radar for current GPS location or using cell towers
(to get location using cell towers uncheck “Use GPS” in Settings)
– Ability to manually enter location
– Click anywhere on the map to move to that location
– Different zoom levels
– Animated radar loop
– Multiple resolutions (VGA,QVGA,WVGA,WQVGA) Portrait/Landscape/Square
– Integrates with Showaco TitaniumWeather 4.2 PlugIn

iDialer-0_53-2

First released back in September 2008 by XDA member supbro, iDialer v0.53 provides the functionality to call from your Google Voice account direct from the dialpad on your Windows Mobile device.  The dialpad is a clone of the much loved iPhone dialer and is fully skinnable.

Compatible with QVGA, VGA, HVGA and WVGA (upscaled) on touchscreen and non touchscreen devices (pocketpc and smartphones),  iDialer is compatible with WM6 ,6.1 and 6.5.  At the time of writing, compatibility with WM6.5.3. is still to be confirmed.

When placing an outgoing call, iDialer will ask which service you wish to use – however I suspect that most would use their Google Voice account if they have one.

iDialer relies on the built-in default dialer or Google Voice to place the call using a callback method. Once the call is made, iDialer closes down and an incoming call is received from your Google Voice number, which when answered connects to the recipient. Your actual phone call occurs over your phone network and the data network (so not VoIP).

Other features include copy & paste, dialling ‘p’ and ‘w’ in phone numbers from iContact (supbro’s affiliated contact manager app), long press ‘1’ for voicemail, other speed-dials 2-9.  911 calls are always forced to use the built-in dialer.

iDialer is best used with iContact and GreenButton (both applications were developed by supbro and integrate superbly with iDialer).  Without iContact, you will need to either remember the numbers that you wish to dial or copy and paste from the default contacts application.  GreenButton maps your hardkey call button to call up iDialer, rather than the default dialpad.  Unfortunately if you are a fan of Mobile Shell, then GreenButton will not work for you – in which case AEButton (Plus) is a good alternative to map the hardkey yourself.  In order for iContact to communicate with iDialer, both applications must be installed to the same memory – either Storage Card or device memory.

Number format display can be updated via the registry or via supbro’s CabGen app which will update the registry for you.  Dialpad tone volume too has it’s own registry key and can be modified to ‘0’ if you like a silent dialpad or you can install supbro’s mute keypad.cab.

For those of you looking for a fully integrated dialer, then iDialer unfortunately is not for you – ultimately it is a dialpad (it has no TAPI functionality built in) with no additional in-call features (the default dialer takes over), or built in SMS capability for Google Voice.  Supbro has planned for in-call features to be developed in version 1.0 although the last update was way back in September 2009.  In addition smartdialling is not supported, neither is video calling, nor USSD messages.
