Well-Note For Windows Mobile
We like to feature Windows Mobile apps from time to time on our Portal. After all, they are precursors of what we have today on most devices. Note taking apps has been a primordial breed of apps that has spawned countless variants of itself across all known platforms. Many vary in style, design, and functionality, and this one that was created by XDA Recognized Developer TangoChen seems to somewhat fuse newer styles with older technology. Well-Note for Windows Mobile is a Windows Phone styled note taking app, which features the side scrolling screens, big letter, and hidden menus, that every WP7 fan loves to hate (or hate to love, depending on the point of view). The dev posted a video demonstration of the app in action. In there you can see the smoothness with which this app runs.
Well, if you were waiting to replace WM 6.5’s native Notes app, now is your chance. Please leave some feedback for the dev in case you run into any bugs or if you simply have any suggestions.
- Run more smooth while viewing files list of a category.
- After clicking to a file from What’s New, clicking the [Back] icon will take you back to What’s New list but not files list of that category.
- Fixed some bugs.
- Added features of Copying/Pasting text.
You can find more information in the original thread.

Many people are under the impression that once Apple finally launches its smartwatch, the market for wearables will suddenly become mainstream and be taken to the next level. Taking an idea that already exists and making it incredibly successful isn't something new to Apple, but does the Apple Watch have what it takes? The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
