Skype for Windows Mobile Now Compatible with 6.1

Skype's mobile client for Windows Mobile has been updated to 2.2, it now is compatible with Windows Mobile 6.1. GSM Arena put it through its paces and found it to work well over WiFi, over 3G not so much. Otherwise you're looking at a pretty full-featured client, with support for calls, Skype-out for calling regular numbers, Skype's text-chat, etc.

One downside that GSM Arena notes is that, unlike when making normal calls, the screen stays on during a call and is therefore likely to get “cheek taps” that might accidentally end your call. 'Course, that's not a problem for WMExperts' readers, because y'all know about the clever software that just turns your screen off with the push of an assigned button.

SmartReg for Windows Smartphone v3.5 by Speed Software is next up.

Just a word of caution -- making changes in the registry of your device is NOT for the faint of heart, so it's a good idea to know what you're doing before you lift the hood and start tinkering with the engine. However, if you want an app that will help you track the changes you make, this is one to consider.

Forgotten that registry change you made last week that you really wish you'd never made? Not a problem if you made the change with SmartReg. Simply look in the change history list, view the change and then undo it!

SmartReg is the professional Windows Mobile registry editor. It contains all the features you would expect of a standard registry editor PLUS complete historical change log, comprehensive undo/redo and regular expression searching.

The first free app for WM Standard this week is TempoPerfect at www.smartphone-freeware.com.

TempoPerfect is a Metronome that runs on your PC, Pocket PC or Smartphone and can be controlled on a PC using your mouse or hotkeys. Unlike mechanical metronomes that wind down, TempoPerfect provides a clear and precise beat that can be acurately adjusted for the correct bpm. TempoPerfect is an essential tool for any musician.

TempoPerfect features a visual beat indicator bar that bounces from left to right in time with the beat. This provides musicians with a very helpful visual cue.

You can get TempoPerfect for Free right here.






The next free app for WM Standard is Note2Day v1.0.1 at www.smartphone-freeware.com.

Did something special happen in your life today? A memorable family event? A vacation that you wish to remember? There are many reasons to keep a diary and Note2Day makes it easy to carry a diary in your pocket.

Note2Day turns your smartphone into your personal diary (journal). Add notes with timestamp. Browse and select notes. All notes are stored in single text file so it's easy to import/export and edit your diary.

WM Professional: New

The first new WM Professional application for this week is iContact v0.76 from Doug Melton.

Doug developed this open-source app on his own time for the WM community. If you download and use his app, it's FREE, but donations are welcome and you can download iContact and donate here. Thanks, Doug!

iContact is designed to be an all-inclusive finger-friendly contact manager for Windows Mobile PocketPC phones. It's no secret that it's taken design cues from "other devices". I started out with larna's open-source iContact v0.6, and ran with it!

Please note: iContact 0.76 will not work with WM2003 or non-phone devices. Don't try to install it. For those, iContact 0.6 should work.

Check out the xda-developers thread!

You can get iContact v0.76 for Free (donations are welcomed) here.

CommMgrPro - the Ultimate Profiles App

CommMgrPro, developed Daniel Herrero Rey with all sorts of input from the good folks at XDA is seeing an official version 2.1 release today. We've had some questions about profiles management in our Podcast before and this here software just might be the the bazooka to kill your profiles bug. It does it all -- managing ringers, radios, data connections, auto-sending of SMS, screen light levels, and more. All of which can be based on a ridiculously powerful set of customizable criteria.

Want silence when you walk into a certain (GSM) cell tower's range? Done. Want super-loud-ringer + dim screen when your calendar appointment has the word “discotheque” in it? Done (and we won't judge you for the fact that a. you use the word “discotheque” regularly and b. find it necessary to schedule it on your smartphone).

The software's 15 Euro and available for Windows Mobile Pro devices.

Windows Live Updated For All: Push Email, More!

The Windows Live for Windows Mobile team blog drops the news, the Windows Live client (not to be confused with Live Search) has been updated and is available for everybody to download at http://wl.windowsmobile.com/. The client already provided push sync for email and contacts; the new version adds:

  • View graphics, web links and contact photos in emails
  • Respond to emails with voice recordings
  • Upload photos to your Windows Live Spaces

It does appear that this is still the 'lite' version we mentioned back in April, which doesn't provide for MSN Messenger unless your carrier allows for it. According to MSDN, you'll want to uninstall the previous version from settings before installing the new version, FYI.

Apple's Mobile Me service has been having all sorts of issues, so go ahead and give this app an install and show those iPhone folks how push email (just Hotmail and Live mail) is supposed to work. :p

The wait for Opera Mobile 9.5 is (almost) over

The long-awaited Opera Mobile 9.5 is nearly ready for the public. Opera has announced that an initial beta test is slated for July 15 at www.opera.com, and we'll all be able to get our grubby little hands on it.

Opera also addresses what's taken so long:

Some versions of Opera Mobile 9.5 are already shipping on great phones like the HTC Touch Diamond, and some of you have asked why we wouldn't be able to release it publically yet. As you probably know, releasing a version that works on a large variety of phones is more complex than making it work on one specific phone. You should also expect a few differences between the versions that are pre-installed on phones and the public version of Opera Mobile 9.5.

So, the beta version may contain a few differences than what was seen in a hands-on review back in February.

The Google Mobile Blog has alerted us to a new umbrella page for its mobile services.

Hit up www.google.com/mobile/winmo from your desktop for one-stop shopping for all of Google's mobile device products available on Windows Mobile, including Google Maps, Gmail, Picasa and their bread and butter, Internet search.

Nothing earth-shattering here, but it's all available under one roof, with some how-to videos thrown in as well. No mention of Google Gears, though.

Find your phone with Navizon's Mobfindr

Recently updated in the movement to invade your children's privacy, follow your cheating spouse, ...never lose your phone and locate your friends is Mobfindr from Navizon that will allow you to find the location of nearly any device with a text message.

How it works: The Navizon software utilizes "Virtual GPS", which uses WiFi and triangulation from cell towers to approximate your location. Mobfindr is a service that runs in the background. When an SMS containing a customized passphrase is sent to the Mobfindr-enabled device, it returns its approximate location (within about a mile) via text coordinates.

The Navizon software also features "group" and "buddy" services that allow you and your friends to locate each other.

You can try a free 15-day demo or shell out $24.99 for Navizon Premium. Mobfindr currently only works with the iPhone should be released as a separate application for WinMo and BlackBerry in the near future. A version for S60 devices also is in the works.

Peep video of the Mobfindr service after the break.

JiveTalk for Windows Mobile Now in Alpha

Back when I gave the BlackBerry (Part 1 and Part 2) a shot during the Smartphone Round Robin, there were two BB apps that impressed me: Opera Mobile and JiveTalk. JiveTalk is a multi-IM client and it was by far the best one I tried for the BlackBerry. Over at the CrackBerry forums there was near-universal consensus that it is the best IM client for the platform.

There are a ton of IM clients out there for Windows Mobile (including many on-deck clients built by OZ), but what's neat about JiveTalk right now is the clean, finger-friendly interface. Now remember, this thing is in Alpha and so you're going to see some bugs and it's not yet available for Standard Edition, just Pro. You'll want to keep an eye on the BeeJive Blog for the latest.

Still and all, looks promising, you might want to check it out: JiveTalk Alpha

Thanks to Merlyn3D for the tip!
