Paul's current favourite COMMERCIAL Hermes software...

In the same style of my FREE software thread, I thought i'd post links to my current favorite commercial software. Some of these i've bought, some of these i've tested for software awards, some i'm using in Trial.

Of course, this list is very subjective and tailored very much to what I use the device for, but I thought some people might be interested. I also have a tendency to hard reset and forget to install things, so this list will be pretty fluid :D

Ok to be the first to say them (as im sure someone else will say them soon)

SPB Pocket Plus

SPB Diary

SPB GPRS monitor (came free with my vario but normally a paid for app essential if not on unlimited data)

SPB Backup (as paul said)

SPB Weather

Yes i know its kind of a lot of SPB stuff but i bought the first two got the third free and bought the 4th and got the fifth free with points so im kinda of biased. plus pocketplus and diary have transformed how i use my Vario II and are amazing

I find a mixture of opera mini 2.0 (for when only GPRS is available) and PIE (with SPB Pocket Plus' extensions) all i need for web browsing not felt the urge for the full blown opera yet but others like it

Games wise

Worms World Party are what ive paid for so far and well worth it.

I concur. I also like Spb Time, except the current version displays 24 hour time in the digital clock view, whereas I prefer a 12 hour display.

Only problem with the GPRS monitor is that it doesn't track data via 3G, only GPRS. According to SPB they'll be looking at including this in the next version.

Huh? ... yes it does.... its all the same connection... so you monitor the connect, and it records whatever.

I know this as I watch it go up while connected on 3G, and syncing SPB Weather!

huh yes it does keep a record of 3g I've only ever really used 3g here (as I have brilliant reception so it never switches to gprs) and spb gprs monitor keeps track of my usage fine all you do is set it to monitor t-mobile internet and it tracks that connection no matter whether 3g or gprs

Fantastic! I contacted SPB to check this and they advised that it wouldn't work with 3G so based on that I didn't bother trying it. Guess their support people had better get their act together. Downloading now!

I was told by slingmedia that I could not download slingplayer mobile as it will not work on the UK slingbox.

Just wanted a bit of clarification.

To all the Spb fans in this thread:

Have you had problems with:

machine running very slowly

freezing on wake up

alarms not sounding first thing in the morning until you physically wake the machine up manually

I tried an install a couple of weeks ago of Diary, Weather, Plus, Finance, Backup as this is what I used to run on my old 2003SE machine, but found the machine slowed down to a crawl, and my alarms & notifications stopped working reliably, so I had to hard reset and am using other software to do the same thing.

The only other stuff I had installed at the time was PI, Memmaid, Finance.

I would love to have these back, but kind of gave up on them, maybe too soon?

thanks

I've had spb diary 2.02 and spb pocket plus installed for a couple of months now and experience no funny behavior or any slowdowns at all.

also got spb backup and that's been fine too. I reckon the problems you had have long since been fixed

I am a relative newcomer to Windows Mobile, and remain very frustrated by the limited RAM on most devices, so I am wary of the huge footprint the SPB apps seem to require. I installed the trial version of SPBTime to my storage card, and got the same problems described in this post, ie slower speed and in particular the freezing on wakeup problem, which required numerous soft resets. I uninstalled the app and everything is working fine again. This has made me very wary of loading any SPB products on my device, but I will be interested in hearing whether others have had similar problems.

To all the Spb fans in this thread:

Since advice after my last post, I did a hard reset, installed Spb diary, weather and plus and all is running well on my machine. No slow downs, or any other hitches.

I think that I must have just been unlucky with my original install, everything is great now, and I can highly recommend this software. I haven't installed time though, on my previous machine I installed it in an attempt to correct my alarm problem, touch wood, I now no longer have an alarm problem since installing checknotifications and using it every day.
