Zooomer enables “Pinch to Zoom” for HTC HD2
Zooomer, developed by Bernd M Walter, a friend of the original mobilitygeek, enables “pinch to zoom” on the HTC HD2, for user installed programs.
The software scans for all .exe files on the device (including SD card), you select the apps that you wish to be zoom enabled and perform a soft reset. Simple!
Currently the software only works for user installed applications although some built applications may also be ‘zoom’ enabled.
For example Zooomer will not work with Internet Explorer on your device since it is a built in application.
There is a suggestion, however that there is a possibility to develop onto pre-installed applications in the future.
To download the cab file, visit the application thread.
Zooomer is available for free. If you wish to donate, you can do so from within the app.
Requires .NET CF 3.5

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...
