iGate is a very nice software that incorporates in only one screen several functions like time, date, missed calls, text messages and more.
It also allows a quick and efficient way to unlock your device by using a numeric pad on the bottom of the screen.
You can try this software over at PocketGear, or buy for 9,95€
The new version of Opera 9.51b1 for Windows Mobile 5/6 Pocket PC is now avaliable.
Donwload it here.
I have made a short video using SOTI Pocket Controller about the great today plugin that comes with the LG KS20.
Although it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of other comercial plugins avaliable I can tell you its quite pratical and helps the one hand use of the device.
I am also demoing in the video a very very cool application that comes with this device and is called PSNote.
PSNote allows you to take notes of course, but it has a built in character recognizer that I can tell you that works just great.
You can also insert movie clips, images, and audio in your notes, and make colourfull drawings.
To me this is one of the most complete and interesting notes application.
I have been lucky enough to recieve a brand new LG KS20, which I am right now exploring.
A few features I am liking allot are:
- Weight – only 92.5 grams!!
- Fast – 400Mhz processor
- Very nice screen – though not as bright as my Samsung i780
- FM Radio
On the down side:
- Only proprietary audio output and AC plug
- Windows Mobile 6 instead of 6.1
I am leaving you a picture and hope to have more tomorrow along with a video about the interface and extra apps.

The Treo 800w is now on sale from Sprint in the United States, and David Ciccone from Mobility Today has made a quite interesting review of the device where he points out its pros and cons.
As a recent Treo 750w user I really liked the experience that the device gave me, but it lacked the GPS and the Wifi. The Treo 800w comes to fill this gap.
To see the whole review check out Mobility Today’s website.
Chris Craft a fellow MVP as put himself to a challenge: developing 30 diferent application for Windows Mobile in 30 days.
He wanted to do this in order to show novice programmers how easy it is to make a small app for Windows Mobile using the .NET Compact Framework.
Because whenever I can I also do some programming, I found this challenge very interesting and I also believe many of you will, so hean on to Chris Craft’s Weblog and learn more about all the 30 app he made with the source code.
