    Hey,

    Since we already have an accessories thread going.

    It seems to be a little while since an up to date conversation has been started on VGA applications.

    What are your essentials and must have VGA applications for this device?


    Here's what's been suggested so far:

    Calculator:
    • calc98
    • OmniSolve
    • RapidCalc
    eBook:
    • eReader Pro
    • uBook
    Internet:
    • Google Maps
    • Opera Mobile
    • Virtual Earth Mobile
    File Managers:
    • Resco Explorer
    Keyboards (on screen) & Text entry:
    • Calligrapher
    • Resco Keyboard Pro
    • Spb Full Screen Keyboard
    • Touchpal
    Media:
    • Pocket Player 3
    • Resco Viewer
    • TCPMP with the .FLV and .AAC add-ons
    PIM Suite & Plug-ins:
    • Agenda One & Agenda Fusion (Agenda One has been designed to be completely stylus-free. Agenda Fusion with features like drag and drop, more heavily relies on the Pocket PC stylus.)
    • SBSH PocketBreeze
    • Spb Diary
    • Pocket Informant
    Security:
    • SplashID
    • Spb Wallet
    • Spb Backup

    Not to be off thread but i own the N810 and the unit does a good job on videos, Youtube and what not. Will the new Ipaq 210 be capable of such? If so the N810 might be down the road...

    Well the VGA screen on the 210 should display videos beautifully, but it remains to be seen how it looks in landscape mode. (some VGA screens had polarization issue when viewed in landscape mode such as the X50v / x51v)

    In the coming weeks we should get plenty of review to pick from.

    The iPaq 210 will play anything TCPMP plays, including DivX, MPEG, Xvid, etcetera. As for YouTube, there are several different options for playing them on Windows Mobile. I'm told Opera Mobile combined with the WM Flash plugin can do this. There's also TCPMP plugins, and other programs.

    I'd certainly put TCPMP with the .FLV and .AAC add-ons on my "Must Have" list.

    I recently migrated from WM2003SE to WM5 and practically everything was capable of making the transition. I did upgrade Sprite Backup as there are different versions for the two operating systems. I expect that everything I currently run on WM5 will migrate successfully to WM6; I have no indications otherwise. :)

    Yes, indeed.

    Of all of those applications, the first five I installed on this most recent migration were:
    • Resco Utility Suite (Explorer + Photo Viewer)
    • Tweaks2k2.net
    • PocketInformant
    • PocketBreeze
    • iLauncher
