Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough.

WMVikings: Account Checker for Mobile Vikings
For Belgian Mobile Viking users here, XDA developer h0er created an application called WMVikings, which shows Sim balance, TopUp history and 5 last calls. It’s very useful if you need to check how much text messages you have left, remaining credit, data, and more.

I could not find a working Windows Mobile account checker for Mobile Vikings, so I created one myself.
This application is written completely in .NET and should work on all Windows Mobile 6.5> (.NETCF required).
- SIM balance
- TopUp history
- 5 last calls (incoming & outgoing) *
*: If there are no calls in the stream the application receives from Mobile Vikings, this box can be empty.
You only have to enter your details once, they are saved on the device in XML format.
- Extend ‘5 last calls’ with more functions
- Make it prettier
- Make it finger friendlier
As you can see, the developer is planning some updates, with some nice improvements.
You can find the small but useful application in the application thread.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
