This is such a cool thread but I cant seem to install some of them, such as the ereader and WiFiFum 2. Does anyone know of any links that can help please? I got WM5 SPV M5000 with a SD card.

I really need a tutorial on installing :)

Thanks in advance if you can help.

Topic pinned. Kudos to hello_modaco for the continued good work.

@Squilla, first thing to be wary of is that not all software is compatible with the operating system on your device, Windows Mobile 5. You'll need to check the source in each case. As far as how to install, there are two methods most commonly used. One is a .cab file that should be transferred onto your Pocket PC device and then run. Follow the instructions on your device to procede with the install. Then there are .exe installs which have to be run on your desktop PC. They usually link with Activesync to install the software next time you sync. As before, follow the instructions given...

Thanks loads for your advice, I have always tried the .exe way annd have always been unsure of cab files on my device so you have cleared that up for me.

Cheers loads for pinning this thread too! Its a great thread and I have tried to hunt it out many times :)

PocketNotepad 4.0


Download: PocketNotepad 4.0



The application was written to allow anyone who has a blood pressure meter at home or office to track and monitor their blood pressure on a regular basis. Blood pressure readings self taken at home are usually more accurate than readings taken by doctor.

This is a beta version which unfortunately tested only on the PocketPC Mobile 2003 (ARM version). To use it, download BPMonitor.zip , unzip and copy the executable to your Pocket PC and run it as it is. It is free for personal use only.

The application lets you record the blood pressure and heart rate readings by date and time of the measurement, you can then see your readings as table data or view them as graph data to see the trend over time.

TodayAgenda is great - a really good freeware alternative to Spb Diary, with almost all the options the latter has!

Haven't being trying it long enough to comment on the stability, but so far the only (very minor) issue is that it takes a few seconds to get the calendar data onto the screen when first loaded.
