Vito Technology releases Winterface 1.1

Winterface

Winterface

I have to say that I’m not using any of the Touch Screen “mobile shell” applications that are currently available, but after the release of Winterface it has generated quite some excitement. So therefore I think people will be glad to know that a new version (v1.1) has been released by Vito Technology.

Winterface to win your hearts

New version with numerous improvements

            August 13th, 2008 – VITO Technology releases a new version of one of its best-sellers – Winterfcae. Winterface is a Windows Mobile shell that helps you to organize applications and settings at your PocketPC the way you like. The start gesture “rainbow” was replaced in new version by upside down tick ^. Moreover, it has become possible to add to the main screen not only applications, settings and contacts but also any files on your Pocket PC. Besides, calendar and tasks now can notify you about upcoming events, appointments and tasks. Minor bugs have been also fixed.
          The new version 1.1 of Winterface includes numerous improvements. The major one is that we’ve changed the start gesture, now the application is started with the help of the upside down tick ^. This gesture is unlikely to interfere with other applications so that Winterface couldn’t pop out each time you slide the screen. Drawing the gesture “tick” or letter “v” on your screen can close any application you are working in.
Other improvements are concerned with tasks and calendar. For most of users their Pocket PCs are organizers and reminders. Therefore Winterface now have red indicators with numbers above Calendar and Tasks icons to show active tasks and upcoming events. When tapping Calender you can see a semi-transparent window with all events. If you need to edit time or event you can go to the calendar if not you may return back to the screen. As for the tasks, pressing the icon you are put straight to the Tasks to look at them and to edit.  
At one of the sites where we had great discussion with our users we were strongly convinced by the advanced WM users that they definitely need quick access to separate files. Therefore “Files” was added to the menu of the program that affords you to add any file to the screen. Moreover, we’ve made a possibility to switch off the lock screen.
Winterface now looks whiter as most of the standard icons were replaced by super stylish winter-like icons. You will be amazed by the cool looks of your Pocket PC screen.
Some of the bugs were fixed like: it is now impossible to delete Menu and Running icons of the program, some of the icons are not doubled any more (like Phone). The bug on HTC devices with battery icon was also fixed.   

NOTE! If you need to backup your settings, you only should rename file pages.db (for example, pages_old.db) in the Winterface folder. Then you should uninstall the old version of Winterface, rename it back from pages_old.db  to pages.db after that install new version of the program. All other updates that are higher than version 1.1 won’t need this operation as the program will do it itself.

Winterface is available for $19.95 at www.iWindowsMobile.com/vito-mobile-shell.html.

VITO Technology Inc. is known for its high-tech products in the field of Windows Mobile and Symbian software, GPS navigation and custom projects. Introduced in the present article Winterface is a mobile shell for Windows Mobile.

Ilium turns 11 next week, and celebrates!

I can remember that Ilium Software turned 10 like it was last month.
However, it has already been a year since they celebrated that birthday.
So next week there is reason for a party again!

This is the key part of the e-mail Judie sent to me this afternoon:

We’re planning a week-long celebration, with a contest each day. We’ll be giving away Amazon gift cards, as well as copies of our software. The contests will be run on our blog, at http://blog.iliumsoft.com, from Monday, June 2nd, through Friday, June 6th.

And, since no anniversary party would be complete without a big sale, we’re having one of those too! For five days, we’ll be offering a 55% discount off the regular price of all of our software. The link to the anniversary sale page will be: http://www.iliumsoft.com/elevenyears (The page isn’t live yet but it will be there on Monday!)

So that’s a daily contest and discounts of more than 50%, for several days! Be aware that you need to be on the specific websites addresses to take advantage of these celebrations, but I´m guessing that Judie will put links to these sections on the IliumSoft.com homepage as well. Be sure to bookmark these pages already!

VITO updates SMS-Chat (version 1.05)

Normally I don’t post press releases, but today I’m making an exception. Ever since its release I’ve liked VITO SMS-Chat a lot for the way it looked, and for what it did. I’m not (any more) someone who upgrades my device with custom ROMs, so I don’t have WM 6.1 and if I want threaded messaging, I need to look for third party software.

The one thing I didn’t like about VITO SMS-Chat was that it copied all your messages to a different, VITO SMS-Chat specific, custom folder, breaking compatibility with other programs. However, when I read the press release I received this morning, I saw that this was no longer the case: all messages stay in your Inbox, Sent Messages folder, etc.! That alone was enough reason for me to install and activate SMS-Chat ( already owned it, just never used it), but there are several other good enhancements, so reading the entire press release is recommended, if you’re looking for threaded messaging software. (In fact,

The press release if after the break.

My Today Screen, A New Online Resource For Windows Mobile Users, Launches April 1.

MTSlogo

This morning I received an e-mail in my inbox from Doug Goldring, announcing the public launch of the new Windows Mobile website My Today Screen. I already knew of it’s existance, because I had the pleasure to be part of the soft launch earlier this week. Doug Goldring and Tariq Bamadhaj have started this website together, so we can be sure to expect some very good content.

Doug is known from contributions to Gear Diary, and many other things, but mostly from his many reviews on JustAnotherMobileMonday. If you´ve ever looked for a review before purchasing a game for your Pocket PC, there´s a good chance you´ve read one of his articles.
Tariq is an Expert Blogger at Smartphone and Pocket PC Magazine’s website, but also the founder of EtenBlogDotCom. I´ve found EtenBlogDotCom to be a great website, not just for people using Eten devices – even if you skip the Eten content there’s lots of good stuff there.
