XDA in History – Past Applications: PocketToolman

On this series of articles, we will be writing about those magnificent applications of the past, we have to remember that not everyone is using the latest device available and many members are still using older devices. This time, XDA member hendrixus presented long time ago an application called PocketToolman, a sys tray utility that gives you quick access to Pocket PC’s functions, programs, and settings. A popup dialog will display useful functions such as suspend, soft reset, easy access to settings, screen off, lock device, and many more. The application is supported for Windows Mobile 6 only and download link can be found on post number 13.

Features:

* Suspend – allows you to power-off the Pocket PC without having to press the Power button. You can also add the Suspend icon in the tray for easy access.
* Soft Reset – performs soft reset.
* Settings – quick access to Control Panel applets.
* ScreenOff – switches off the screen. You can create a shortcut to invoke ScreenOff. Great for binding to a hardware button to easy access.
* Lock Device – allows you to lock the Pocket PC when it’s running. Using the same system password for unlocking.
* Stay Alive [Power] – allows you to temporarily stop your Pocket PC from auto power-off.
* Battery Meter – displays the battery life percentage in the systray.
* Disconnect – Disconnects current RAS connection.
* PIN Lock – Invoke the PIN prompt. You must have the PIN prompt enabled for this to work.
* Quick access to toggle Bluetooth on/off by adding a Bluetooth icon into the systray. *Supports Microsoft Bluetooth Stack ONLY.
* Quick access to toggle WiFi on/off by adding a WiFi icon into the tray.
* Quick access to HTC Task Manager by adding an icon to the systray for easy access to provide one hand operation to close running applications.
* Persistently Hides SIM Contacts – On my TyTN II, after a soft-reset, the flag is restored to show contacts on SIM card. With PT, if you set it to run at Startup, what PT does is apply the setting during execution, then applies again after roughly a minute after soft-reset to ensure SIM contacts are set to hide.
* Data Connections – Allows you to disable data connection entries to stop them from connecting automatically. This feature is great when you are roaming and do not want to pay for costly data roaming charges. You can also set data connection entries to be AlwaysOn.
* Disable SMS ‘Message delivered” popup.
* Disable HTC screen off after a call has been connected.

Would The LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?
