poeticwun tells us in the Touch Pro2 Forums about this great app called WiFi Remote Access that allows you to explore the content of your Windows Mobile Phone through the browser on your PC over WiFI. It’s super easy to use and can come in real handy in a pinch.
For example, say you’re at a friends house and want to transfer a file to them but you can’t transfer it the usual way. Just fire up WiFi Remote Access up and get to business. Keep reading for a mini-review and some features.
Being able to access network folders on windows mobile will enable you to play video and music from your PC and much more. You will need Schaps Network Plugin. Download the .cab and install it to your Touch Pro2 (or Shadow, Dash, etc). You will need to restart your device and be connected over WiFi to the same network that the folder you want to connect to is on. Keep reading to find out the details. More >
The future is here, NOW! Perhaps you’ve read the reports on wireless energy transfer and wondered how long it would be before you could take advantage of this. Well today is the day. Anton Tomov has developed a super secret app that the battery and charger manufacturers don’t want you to know about. You can charge your phone via wifi. Similar to an RFID, this app enables your wifi antenna on your phone to transmogrify the power in the signals into usable power for your phone. You don’t need a charger anymore!
Hurry up and get it before the authorities have it pulled down! Get it here. There is a version for both touchscreen and non-touchscreen (Sorry Android)
Thanks ND4SPD and XDA
If you are a Boingo Hotspot Subscriber you will be pleased to know that they have finally added support for Windows Mobile 6 devices. Boingo provides unlimited PDA Wifi subscriptions for around $7.95 a month and has thousands of access points worldwide with over 5700 in the US. The Shadow is listed as a supported device and all Windows Mobile 6 devices do require a client application download to access the service.
It might be helpful to check the access points in your area. If the T-Mobile Hotspot plan seems pricey for the number of points you now have more options. If you don’t frequent Starbucks that often then Boingo might be the way to go for you.
