Thought I would list out a few Twitter apps for your Windows Mobile phone.  I personally use Twobile the most.  Each application is obviously similar, being that they mostly do the same things.  Enjoy…

Buzz is growing on forums and on some blogs about the new update for the Verizon Samsung SCH-i760. This update for the i760 will upgrade your phone’s operating system to Windows Mobile 6.1. I have been burned as an early adopter many times before, especially with just-released phone updates. But, I’m a sucker, so I installed the update anyways today.

This new update includes the following features for your SCH-i760:

  • SDHC Support for large microSD cards
  • Zoom feature for PocketIE
  • Threaded SMS
  • Several Bluetooth improvements (updated BT DUN profile, improved scanning)
  • Support for YouTube Videos
  • Fixed some memory leak issues
  • Enhanced Task Manager
  • Includes Remote Desktop client
  • Addition of Microsoft OneNote Mobile to Office Suite
  • Many other bug fixes and Windows Mobile 6.1 features

Now, this update was not without incident. I had various parts of the install fail, but in the end the upgrade took. Unfortunately my backups were no good. When you backup with a program like SPB Backup on an older ROM, it causes issues when you restore. I had my contacts and bookmarks sync’d up with DashWire (and ActiveSync) so I didn’t loose any of the really important stuff. I will however have to re-install all of my applications and tweaks, but in the end its not that bad.

My first impressions overall are good. The device seems to be running slightly faster, and so far some of the tiny annoyances I had appear to have been fixed. Before you upgrade please be sure to check out this thread on PDAPhoneHome Forums regarding issues people are having. Also do not attempt to upgrade your Samsung SCH-i760 unless you are a fairly advanced user, and you can afford to loose all of your data, as installing the device will wipe your data and reset the device’s software to a factory-like state.

Goodluck and enjoy the new features!

There are many free software applications for the Windows Mobile platform, unfortunately many of them are horrible. After years of testing various apps on both WM5 and Windows Mobile 6 Professional, I have settled on my essential free programs. I’ve decided to only include those programs I use on a regular basis, or find incredibly helpful. I know everyone has their favorites, but these are mine. I recently had several friends purchase windows mobile based phones (after years of me telling them to do so), so this will also serve as a resource for them to get up to speed. I’ve already done the testing to figure out what works and what doesn’t, so you can just start enjoying your phone for all the cool stuff it can do.
