Have you ever been sitting around playing with your Shadow, listening to music when a song came on that you really wanted to change but just didn’t want to get up for? Ever missed a call because you were jamming out at volume 11 or even tried to answer a call and couldn’t silence the machine fast enough? Ever wished you could control a PowerPoint presentation, DVD video, or even your home from your phone? Salling Software Clicker makes that and more possible. Clicker works over WiFi and Bluetooth, but doesn’t need both. Amazingly, it will even control a non-wireless computer connected to a WiFi router. You can enable/disable features from the computer and share features from computer to computer over the network. When connecting from Windows Mobile you can specify if you want to connect over wifi or Bluetooth and choose which computer on your network you want to connect to. More >
There’s a problem with most Note programs, they just aren’t accessible enough and they usually cost money. On touch screen Windows Mobile phones the notes are synced with Outlook and the interface is messy at best. Then again there are thousands of desktop-only note applications. Even further, there are plenty web based note systems in place. The worst part of the mess is that not a single one can do Text, Audio, Photo (and Ink) while being accessible from your phone, computer, or any web browser AND allow you to share notes at the click of a button…until Evernote was born. What makes this deal even sweeter is the price…Free! More >
There are several different solutions to having weather on the home screen, some for the NEO home screen and many for the standard Windows Mobile home screen. WorldMate Live takes it a step further by throwing in one click access to your itinerary, travel tools, weather and more, all for free. Even though the home screen plug-in doesn’t work for the NEO you can still use it on the Shadow. In addition to being easy to use it works for you on an easier level than most business/travel apps I have seen. For example, when you are done planning a trip (or having a travel agent do it for you) just email a copy of your itinerary to WorldMate Live and the system automatically begins tracking your flights, providing directions, maps, and weather.

Triniti wrote in to let us know that the MySpace Widget for Yahoo Go 3.0 that we wrote about is back up. When we originally covered the story it promptly disappeared and many people were disappointed. Alas, Yahoo has come through for us and brought it back up! You will need to install Yahoo Go 3.0. Once you have it installed, loaded, and are logged in with your Yahoo ID go to the Widgets icon on the Carousel. From there you should see the MySpace icon in the Editors picks or you can search for it in the Search box.
Thanks Triniti and Enjoy!
T-Mobile has released an update to the HotSpot login utility. This is important to have if you login at Starbucks locations using the HotSpot service.
- For Shadow and Dash users install the TMO_Shadow_Dash_HotSpotUpdate.cab
- For Wing users you can install the TMO_Wing_HotSpotUpdate.cab
You will need to restart your device after installation.
As far as I can tell these updates haven’t been rolled into the Shadow Upgrade Software posted several months ago. So if you perform a Hard Reset you will have to reinstall this.
Edit: The Shadow will fit in the case with BOTH of the Extended Batteries.
First off, if you haven’t bought a Shadow yet make sure you get one in the White Packaging. It has two batteries in it. The standard OEM battery that everyone else has and the new Extended OEM battery.
Okay now for more battery goodness… Starting on Monday, T-Mobile customers can call into Customer Care and order a new Extended Battery (thanks tmonews.com). Supposedly it’s free of charge, which would be a gesture towards customers.
Here is the battery lineup. Starting at the left we have the standard OEM battery with 920mah. In the middle, the new Extended OEM battery from HTC, with a much healthier 1350mah. On the right weighing in at a hefty 2200mah is our BoxWave Electraspan battery we did a full review on. If you want a full 2200mah of power for nearly 3 times the useage then you can order the BoxWave Electraspan here.Keep reading for more Shadow battery pictures and comparisons. More >
