I am a new smartphone user (had many other higher end phones before, i.e. Sony Ericsson S700i but never had a smartphone, though I’ve had ipaqs) and just got my SP5 w/qvga.

I’m looking at some ways to customize my theme/home page. I like lots of information, though I do like a clean look, so that’s a bit of a dichotomy. I also LOVE analog clocks. I did find one that is an analog clock but it has very little information on it, virtually nothing.

I’m between this theme maker/plug in and the other one called batt plug in or something like that.

May I please ask if you guys know he might consider putting in an analog clock? The space devoted to it needs to be slightly bigger as it is a circle, so a narrow strip would make the clock very tiny.

Does the current version optimize for the SP5’s qvga screen? I’ve wondered, where does the temperature come from, may I ask? Do all these new phones have a temp sensor? Or does the program go out to the web to get this info from a postal code?

Thank you all in advance for helping a total newbie out. i've not yet installed anything on my brand new SP5. worried about all these cab files and all. sounds scary and if i goofed, i might "ruin" my new SP5 ;)

By the way, fyi: I’m located in nyc.

don't worry about missing up the phone. there's also a hard reset available to you. just dont change anything about the firmware.

what about this SmartMonitor versus the Batt plug in?

i'm a total newbie, so ease of use, robustness, fewer problems, no crashes...etc are really important to me. i don't even know how to install a cab file yet!

thx in advance and looking forward to your advice/opinions

smartmonitor simply presents a home screen with info e.g. what percent of memory/internal and external you've used, battery, signal strength, temperature etc.

They're dead easy to use:
Copy the .cab (a compressed file which you install directly on the phone - rather than say an .exe which you run on your computer and the info copies over via activesync to your phone) to your phone/storage card and find the file using file manager wihch is under accessories.

select the file, and it will install the necessary files in the right location....

Then go to START, SETTINGS, HOME SCREEN, and change HOME SCREEN LAYOUT to smart monitor. Click DONE and see how your homescreen looks then!

Hi,

I need help to get smartmonitor into my homescreen. Maybe it should have been posted in this thread so i put up a link about it. I really wants to get rid of the launchbar and get in Smartmonitor there instead. Thnx for helping out!

Hate to ask a stupid question, but here goes :D

Is there an easy way (w/o xml) to get the SmartMonitor plugin to show on my homescreen while using Facade and Fizz traveller. I cant seem to make it work.

Thanks!




Never mind, I figured it out :D

The signal meter plugin in Smartmonitor behaves oddly: If for som ereason I loose signal, the signal indicator goes to 1% (indicating no signal), but never comes up again once the signal strength goes up. Turning off and on again the phone gets things back to normal...Anybody experienced this behaviour?

I am going to have to second that motion, as the link to the site appears to be dead.

ok i am wondering if smartmonitor is able to support signal icons like 3G,E,G to be displayed next to the signal strength? i'm wondering cause there is a person at http://mobile.txcaes...amp;p=3501#3501 trying to do so and i think it would be really cool to have it like this :( .
