Getting more from your Windows Mobile 6 phone: A guide to the good stuff.

I’m not sure how many of you know this, but there are plenty of things that you can do with your windows mobile phone. I’m not going to get into phone specific hacks, ( if you have a request, you know where to reach me – chadhughes8706@hotmail.com ) but I am going to get into some great programs to get you started.

First and foremost, I’m going to list some programs. I think you guys like when I compile a lot of software together in a rar file for you to feast on, but this time I’m going to link directly to the sites so they get the credit and traffic they deserve.

Windows Live Search

If you’re an on the go type person, a person that can afford a verizon data plan (if you can, I admire you) or someone that needs to know where to eat or what to do all the time, then this is perfect. This program, while tiny in size, more than makes up for in it ability. It’s like having a Magellan on your phone! What’s more, you can e-mail the place you’d like to go or sms that place to anyone directly from the program. It’s very, very useful, and I sometimes find myself playing with it for no reason. You’re in the city, walking around, and you want Thai food? Type in where you are, pick a category (Thai for this example) and the restaurants will shoot down your screen in blazing speed. USEFUL!

Facade

Facade is a program, that, unlike other theme patchers, completely changes the phone to a business oriented ordeal. It displays a number of useful icons, appointments next to each other, e-mails, and sometimes messages on the homescreen. It’s a great alternative for the business minded user, and provides amazing customization.

Viigo

If you’re an RSS head like myself, then you’ll love this program. It lists thousands of RSS feeds, and lets you read them in a windows mobile friendly content window. No bells and whistles, it just does what it does, and does that well. It’s a great addition to any WM6 phone, especially those who need news on the go.

Emulators

Now I know, I know it’s coming..”you’re too old for games”. But when you can play classics while you’re on the train, waiting for class to start, or on break at work, “WHO CARES?”. There are a bunch of emulators to download, and while I can’t tell you where to find the roms needed to play, Google always does a great job of that.

There are plenty of others, and they all come with compatibility issues and such. You can do that research, but If you want any extra info, you know where to reach me.

Advice, and Tips

  • Look for registry hacks for your phone. Some can speed it up, others can remove unwanted dialogs and features.
  • Get rid of things you don’t need on a regular basis. There’s no need to keep junk there when you don’t need to.
  • It’s important to update your device as much as possible. Check for updates to software so everything is working properly.
  • If your phone is running slower than usual, it might be time to check out the task manager. Usually in a system tools folder, use your task manager to kill your apps to free up memory.

As usual, if you need help comment or e-mail chadhughes8706@hotmail.com

  1. Crate Property, built by Allan Wexler in 1990, is a
    residence in an eight-toes cube and four crates. This house examines our present lives as
    if historic. Each crate has its personal operate and is therfore isolated and analyzed:
    kitchen, bathroom, residing area and bed room. When one purpose is
    necessary that crate is rolled inside the main. At
    night time the whole residence gets a bedroom and when the occupant is hungry the total residence gets a kitchen.
    The fundamental routines are pared down to important artifacts
    essential and preferred. Isolated they are sculpture, their use gets to be theater.
    As Wexler points out: He’s more intrigued in the distress and he would like to try out to make folks consider twice, to restate,
    to stand back again, as effectively as to seem carefully.

  2. Wonderful site. Plenty of useful information here.

    I am sending it to a few pals ans also sharing in delicious.
    And certainly, thanks on your effort!
