You remember the posts on Jott and Evernote right? Well I had a thought in mind that it should be possible to Jott to Evernote (JTE) making life all that much easier. What would I JTE? For starters, any small bit of information I might need later for reference such as a note, address, phone number, email address and so on. The list is really endless.
Apparently I was not the only one to see the potential. Phil Libin on the Evernote blog was about to write about it but was beat to the punch by Brad Isaac at LifeHacker. As with many How-To’s involving betas sometimes the flow changes a bit and since this site is about the Shadow I’m rewriting the steps and adding in a dash of AllShadow. Keep reading or suffer the consequences… More >
ukiya16 posted in the forums a cab he found that disables the XT9 input on the Shadow. Someone might want to do this if English is not their native language, they text or email in a different language, and prefer the ABC method of input. Instead of having to switch from XT9 to ABC every now and then this cab file makes the change permanent. The file is originally for a different device but works fine on the Shadow. You can read more about it and download the cab in this forum post.
NOTE: If you didn’t know already you can switch input methods between XT9/T9 English, ABC, 123, and Symbols pressing and holding the * (Star) key when in a text entry field like the address bar in Pocket Internet Explorer or in a text message.
dom2684 started an off-topic thread that has so far seen 160 responses with people talking about where they’re from, what they’re doing at work (don’t let the boss see AllShadow open or he/she may block it!), and so on. That got us thinking – why not add an Off-Topic forum? So we did! AllShadow is a robust community with a lot of interesting people that have various things to talk about.
How is it different than the General forum? The General forum is for General ideas and insights that you have about the Shadow that aren’t specific to Themes/Hacks & Mods/etc, whereas the Off-Topic forum is for everything else!
That said – we hope that you enjoy the Off-Topic forum and get to know even more about fellow AllShadow members =D.
We have our first great submission from the Tell Mike Page, keep them coming! Lloyd writes in to tell us about Feadie:
“Ever tried to download something and that dreaded message comes up “file not viewable on this device”? Well there’s a program called Feadie that allows you to download any type of format you wish to download. Just type in the format you wish to download that you normally weren’t able to download, and the program registers it in your pocket IE.”
Well put and great find thanks Lloyd!
You can download Feadie here
Many of you are aware that the T-mobile Shadow is equipped with access to POP, IMAP, and other personal email accounts. Some of you may not know that the Shadow has the capability to deliver Exchange push email to your device and is a great asset to keep you connected at work. Windows Mobile 6 has many features included in the email service including syncing your Inbox, Sent items, Calendar, Tasks, Reminders and the ability to view a variety of attached files. It really makes the Shadow a solid communication tool. More >
We got a tip from Kareem informing us that the Skyfire beta can be downloaded from now until August 30 using the special promotion code “Michael8″ over at the Skyfire sign up page. Skyfire is the really awesome browser that works on the Shadow which brings desktop-like web page rendering to your phone.
I just tried the code out and it worked….which is really big news for those of you waiting to get a copy. After you sign up on the Skyfire website, you get an SMS which links to a page that will let you download the file. If you want to know more about Skyfire, check out the video that Mike posted a few months ago.
When it comes to a scientific calculator on the Smartphone nothing beats SpaceTime Mathematics. Simply put it can do everything from basic math to derivatives, integrals and limits. It even cranks out 2D function, parametric, polar, vector field, implicit contour and fractal graphs with ease. Additionally it supports 3D function, parametric, spherical and cylindrical plots even with Time thrown in to see the results as it passes by. With its own scripting language and advanced features such as saving workbooks and returning to the last workbook you worked on SpaceTime 3.0 is by far the best scientific calculator on the market. If you might have a use for such a powerful program, keep reading for more details… More >
