Due to the popularity of my similar Hermes thread, I thought i'd rustle up a list of my favourite free software installed on my Kaiser. All IMHO, YMMV etc. ;)

Wow, looks juicy!! ;)

Quick question though, how do install .cab(s)? With my kaiser (once I get it), do I just come to this forum and click on the files? Im guessing I will be manually placing these files to important folders on my device?

Thanks in advance!

Paul, the "music" tab that you have of your Kaiser is really neat. Is there a way to put a "news" tab for a RSS Reader?

Weather and news right on the homepage would make life eaiser! All I would need then is for the Kaiser to brew me fresh cup of coffee too... :wub:

For what purpose?

Smartskey? For the purpose of one-handed usage. I couldn't live with my XDA Mini without smartskey - being able to close apps, access the start menu and scroll within apps using one hand is great. But I've not played with WM6 so don't know whether it's relevant or if MS have fixed it so you can actually use the device one-handed.

Is there any good tool to enable "switching between applications" that can be mapped to a hardware button?

Somekind like the "ALT-TAB" function in Windows desktop.

Spb Pocket Plus has it. It is really nice, when you switch app, it display the icon (so, it is not like a listbox gui).

But yeah, I dont want to install Pocket Plus ;)

Great list, thanks.

Can someone add a link to the cab file of skype (which version is it, does it work properly)? Since the Tytn II is not listed as part of the HTC devices, I tend to turn in circles trying to locate the correct file.

Vito ButtonMapper is a good extension of the standard tool and includes a task switcher similar to that in PocketPlus.
