10 More Free Pocket PC Apps You Want

My last Freeware post (also here) elicited many responses.  Who doesn’t love free?  Many of the free titles are excellent.  Nothing beats the passion of writing great software that many of these authors exhibit.  I present them in no particular order.  Without further ado…

1. Calc 98


Downloaded over 1 million times, Calc98 runs on pocket pcs and desktops.  It won Pocket PC Magazines’ 2003 best software award as well as receiving various other accolades.

Thanks Dan!

    7. ThemeGenCE v2.5


    from the website, “Pocket PC Themes let you personalize appearance of pages Today and Start. They have for file extension «.TSK». These files are in fact CAB files for installation on Pocket PC, renamed in TSK. They respect the standards of files CAB defined by Microsoft. A file CAB (and thus TSK) includes in fact one or more files.”

    Thanks breley!

    9. Currency Converter


    Currency Converter is a program that makes it easy to convert an amount from one currency to another. Its strength is that it can search for exchange rates on the Internet if the Pocket PC is on line (either by “pass through” when in its cradle or when directly connected).

    Thanks Mark Kennedy!

    10. Adobe Acrobat PDF 2.5 Diamond Version


    From the genius at XDA Developers.  According to Aximsiter Gylman, ”

    I have tried this out, and it really works very well! It does reflow even on files that are not tagged. It is inferior to Acrobat 2.0 in only one way – there is no way set it up so tapping on the screen advances to the next page, so you have to use the scroll bar. Also, it does not work with 2003SE.
    Still, this has permitted me to read files that previously were unreadable on my beloved HX4700. Thanks for the excellent tip, Horgel!”

    Thanks to everyone who contributed.  There are a multitude more freeware apps.  Let us know which ones you can’t do without.
