    It seems that it is worthwhile to create and maintain a list of programs that have difficulties with our "beloved" 210/11/14?

    As far as I am aware:

    Will soon add quirks from the OS (though that is a bigger project) and bundled applications/programs
    Windows Mobile 6.0 Classic

    Bluetooth compatibility difficulties reported with a combination SPB titles and/or Skype. (thanks bigvoice and DrAT)

    Doesn't Work

    Card Export II - per company report ticket answer (thanks Yildi)

    Chinese Monster version 6 (version 5.3 works)

    WiFiFoFum - not set up to play nicely with our marvell chip. (thanks David Hettel)

    SPB Backup - the actual application works and is not reported to "crash" the system, but rather using the backups to restore system has been reported to cause "Unrecognized Card in Socket 1" error

    (resco backup has been reported as working well however do not "restore" from backup made from completely different device - has led one poster on aximsite to damage which mandated him to replace his unit. see sprite 6.2 below)

    TomTom 6 (other than 6.03 - which does work.)


    SKSchema from SKSoftware

    MiniStumbler: Does not see Wi-Fi card of the 211 so the program will not function.

    Works Partially

    Omega One Battery Pack Pro - report that the power store information doesn't update after a period.

    Sprite Backup 6.2 - strong password encryption/decryption scrambles password when restoring, at least between devices. A work-around exists to not restore security settings: (don't restore the following files: "\Pocket PC\System Data\File System\Windows\System\Default.mky" AND "\Pocket PC\System Data\File System\Windows\System\System.mky") - thanks franktl

    Worms World Party - game works well, but the mapping to hardware buttons has been reported if you hexedit config file (WWPSave.dat) - (thanks rush214)

    Fleximail (thanks DrAT) Since there is only one post claiming it working to some level, and the company still claims that it isn't compatible with the 210 211 214 and DRat has posted some serious and potentially very problematic limitations, I hesitate to move it here, but will for the meanwhile. More experiences with fleximail as it is?)

    Although it has been reported that Webis Mail Version 2.11 (Build 4187) works well and completely (thanks wingman2000)

    native PIM with Outlook 2003/7 in Vista and XP with a lot of info (Pocket Informant 8 has been reported as working well)

    coreplayer 1.2.*

    PIE with Chinese OS - significant slowdown surfing Chinese language sites reported (at least once)

    Slick 0.42 - Slick is messenger application for mobile devices though various online messaging programs (ICQ, Yahoo, AIM, MSN, Google Talk, Jabber) . Currently it is still in development, and alpha version is available for free for public testing http://www.lonelycatgames.com/?app=slick User KS3 notes that the only draw back is that sometimes when you have a lot of things open the program hangs. I just go to Memory and close all programs

    Unclear Functioning

    Real VGA - suspicion that it awakens "Unrecognized Card in Socket 1" error. Not clear if it is the real suspect. Though other reports that it works well.

    WordNetCE Dictionary (works but the text is very big)

    Messaging - has reports of deleted mail items while using Gmail POP - though it may work with gmail IMAP

    Being Examined Further - i.e. not sure but at least a report was made

    Macromedia Flash 7 bothering SPB Plus Repeating Alarms function

    Fully Functional

    Adobe Flash - for windows mobile.

    AE Button Plus 2.6 - Allows you to bind up to 4 different actions (of more than 40) to almost any hardware button including volume slider, SoftKey buttons and even green/red phone buttons.

    its a great idea; I'm a Palm user, so don't know if there is already something comparable to this thread for the TX at PalmFocus for WM devices. If there isn't, you might want to get in touch with a Moderator here to make it a sticky thread (permanently at the top of the 21x forum) and to control access to it (for lack of being able to concisely say ensuring that only tested apps make the list, and that it stays on topic)

    PS--belated welcome to Brighthand, ceril

    The problem is that many programs don't just have an effect on the device itself but also on other installed programs too. I like FlexMail but it completely crashes my 214 yet other people report it works fine!
    So although a list of programs that don't work may be useful people should bear in mind that what works on one device and set up may not work on theirs. Backup first, try it and see is the best advice I suppose.

    I agree which is why, if possible, I will try to keep it updated and offer options that have worked (at least for some). Although at least for Flexmail, the company came out and declared officially a compatibility issue in addition to other users' experience.

    Another example is the Chinese OS. I have no idea about how the Chinese OS of WM6 interacts with any program seeing as I do not speak, read etc Chinese - but it was reported. I would be happy to get feedback from any language-specific apps as well, but seeing as I know English and one other language, I personally will not be able to cover this "field".

    As always, I am open to any suggestions

    Thanks for the welcome.
    At least in the section of the HP 210, I didn't notice a sticky with such a subject, but I attribute that to the young age of the device and the fact that the alpha testers (i.e. us) haven't finished reporting just yet.

    I'm going to go ahead and sticky this thread. A couple recommendations: you might want to sort the list by categories: "Doesn't work," "Works partially," "Fully functional," etcetera. Also, if you go to the advanced reply or edit box, you'll see on the bar right above the text some formatting options that might help you organize the list.

    Only problem I have is that SPB Backup has and is working great for me and for others so why is it listed in the Doesn't Work section? :confused:

    At least for myself, and several others, a restore using SPB Backup results in the CF Slot not being recognized. SPB is working on it. If you don't use a CF card, then it probably does work very well for you.

    That's good to know. I had no idea that was happening. There have been so many CF issues with the 210 that many also say that there must be a hardware problem.
