MalaTouch for Windows Mobile Released
Posted July 9, 2010 at 09:00 am by Ben Elliott
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.
