What's Installed On your WinMo Standard Device?

We've recovered from the Week o' Weather apps (hint: see the roundup here), but we still have Windows Mobile Standard on the brain. We figure that there are a lot of people out there who have moved to standard from Pro recently -- Standard is less and less the 'redheaded stepchild' of Windows Mobile Proper and more and more the platform of choice for developers. Plus -- the devices are, let's face it, thinner and a little sexier.

So! Cadman starts up a conversation in our forums that we want to continue: What's installed on your WinMo Standard Device? What's your fave? What do you miss from your old device that you need on your new WM Standard smartphone? Hit us up in the comments!

    Before WM6.1 I also had SMSBubbles, Fizzweather, the Orange homescreen plugin, Opera Mini/Jbed, TCPMP/ FlashVideoBundle, and SPBattMet installed. Opera had some issues for me with cookies on some websites so I just stick to PIE now. I never actually used TCPMP or FlashVideoBundle, so that was a waste. I now use CHomeWeather instead of Fizz, and SMSbubbles isn't really necessary for me either with the panel view it does now. Also very important the first time I synced contacts over to my Q9C was ContactFix, which switched all 100 of my contacts to the First Name Last Name type display that I prefer. I've considered PocketTunes myself, but since it doesn't work with the Music sliding panel, I decided to stick with WMP.
    Plus... I have the q9c GPS Hack and ClockonTop installed, in addition to Rinku's Iconbar and CHomeWeather for my sliding panels homescreen (which uses Mortscript as a backend.)
    Here's the homescreen, if anyone's interested in that as well:
    Credit for the background goes to FreddyReyes.com, whose themes look awesome for portrait devices but unforunately don't work entirely right on landscape devices. I'm not entirely happy with the custom slim layout for CHome weather that it uses. (If you notice, it changes all of the panels to make them smaller.) There's some issues with alignment varying too much, and the picture for some panels being on the right and other panels being on the left, but its still nice.)
    I've also changed the dialer screen just slightly using a file from one of his themes. I removed the ugly yellow strip (that shows the letters/ numbers a regular phone has) that was default on my Sprint q9c to replace it with the gray one shown here:
    Edit: One last thing... I see Dieter lists Seven email. I had Seven installed at one point as well, though I noticed for my non-Gmail IMAP account (Fastmail) that it wasn't getting the messages immediately. After some research into the issue, it turns out that Seven's program is only true push for a few types of email accounts. They do not use IMAP IDLE like Chatter did. With Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo, Seven gets server notifications when a new email arrives, making it true push for those email accounts, but with a standard IMAP account like my Fastmail one, it just polls every five minutes, making it no better than Outlook Mobile on its own.

    To me WM standard is so much more integrated into the phone, whereas wm pro seems to make it two separate devices.
  • Right now, all I have on my BlackJack is GamePack 2 from Implicit Software Solutions Inc. It has a good combination of "action" games and "thinking" games such as Sudoku, which I am addicted to. Here is where I got it, and there are sooo many other games I want to try. Luckily many have trials so I don't go broke finding the games I love, haha.http://www.wireless-gaming.com/desc.php?d=d2&id=198869&t=iSS202&com=Implicit20Solutions%20Inc
  • I like all the games. Sudoku is one of my favorites. It gives you into thinking. Makes you play over and over again.
