Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone Applications (Typhoon)

Wednesday, May 31, 2006

Well,I have been successfully using WM5 ROM by Ronswens and am happy to say that I'm a happier customer of HTC Typhoon (bought it on Jan 2005) .WM5 ROM really outshines WM 2003 SE ROM.I started experimenting heavily using this ROM and am successful so far except for A2DP profile thingy which may be sorted out pretty soon by Ronswens!!

I have compiled a list of applications which I have been successfully using for quite sometime now.Feel free to add your fav. apps to this growing list of WM5 apps::

  • Agile Messenger : Good old messaging client (Yahoo,MSN,AOL). =>Download<=
  • TCPMP Core Player : The best media player (AVI,MPEG videos created using Lathe). =>Download<=
  • Opera Browser 8.60 : A full review is pending on this niche product!!Thank you Opera for the ultimate experience! =>Download<=
  • Opera mini 2.0 : The world's best light-weight browser(lesser memory occupied) with download capabilities which also enables us to save images for the first time in Smartphone history! =>Download<=
  • Minimo 0.015 (working Partially) : Doug Turner needs to work hard on this splendid product.Its in an early beta stage,hence not running to its fullest potential in my Typhoon!!(Download the CAB file and extract files using WinRAR.Copy the extracted folder to your phone's storage card and launch minimo.exe file) =>Download<=
  • SlovoEd English Dictionary : Well,this app. really rocks!!I would recommend you if you are a student(prep for TOEFL/GRE/College/School) or a job holder!!The entire dictionary in one slim device,dats what is innovation!! =>Download<=
  • SmartExplorer : This app plunges the loop hole in wm smartphones by enabling us to transfer files via Bluetooth. =>Download<=
  • SpHelper : This is a nifty utility which enables you to run Pocket PC apps. in a rather friendly manner ;) I found it useful when am using Minimo,Opera 8.60 PPC Browser. =>Download<=
  • Tweaks2k2 : Are you so lazy to manually RegEdit your smartphone to achieve few important tasks??Well,this app. is for you then!Have a go at it!! =>Download<=
  • XBar 3 : This tiny app helps you copy/paste,launch/close apps and a lot more!An must use utility!! =>Download<=
  • Pocket Controller Professional : Well,from now on,I will be posting screenshots of apps running on my Typhoon and its possible using this app. alongwith MS Power Toys. =>Download<=
  • ClearVue Suite 2.41 (SmartPhone) : I had to open few important word documents and then began my journey to Zero-in on a fine app for this purpose.Though the Zooming feature needs to be worked a bit,its a better option for the time-being!! =>Download<=

    Hi,
    I read your blog about wm5 on smartphone, i am a fellow smartphone(spv c500) user from AP. I was considering this wm5 rom and came across ur blog. Doyou find this rom functionally different from the 2k3 rom? Are there any defects in it? Will I loose some functions if i upgrade?
    Just mail me at sandeepnadella@gmail.com

    HAHA!
    Wishful thinking Kiran.
    A2DP is a hardware thing that cant be resolved through a software patch by Ronswens.
    Anyways good to see that your experimenting has led you this far.
    I was thinking...I'm surprised you arent bitching about the quality of the camera on the WM5 rom.
    Do you have some sort of secondary app that clicks better pics?

    firstly,my smartphone came to life with wm5.i recommend it firmly,go ahead.

    well,a2dp shud not be hardware thingy.all it does is route the audio output to your bluetooth headset.so,there shud be a patch i believe.lets hope ronswens achieves it!

    as far as my knowledge goes,i downloaded one camera app,but dat sucks high time.dats why i dint publish.
    check my albums on my website for cam qulty

    Hi. I have an IQ700 which I am wanting to upgrade the ROM. However, I have no idea at all as to where to start. Can I trouble you to point me in the right direction. also, If I want to try WM5, can you tell me where there is a current copy to download?

    Hi Kiran. I have downloaded and install SuperCID onto my PC. However, when running it, I gor the error message "RAPI Error. Unknown error - 2147467259 in read operation." I tried redownloading the file but still get the same message. Any thoughts?

    Thanks
