My Must Have Windows Mobile (PPC) Software


I been using Windows Mobile "Smart Phones" for years now and Over the weekend, I noticed that my phone's disk space was full, which always means... It is time to reformat....

Here is what I'm running

Device: ATT Tilt
OS      : WM 6.1 (check out how to upgrade if you are running anything else)

Note: I also have a 4 GB micoSD card where I install all my none critical applications.



The Following are Software I always Install they are not listed in any order just the order I remembered them. 


KaiserTweak

KaiserTweak is a little tool that tweaks some of your HTC Kaiser (P4450, TyTN II, Vario III) registry settings. Making it took several hours of my life, so you better enjoy it. Note that some tweaks may work on devices other than the Kaiser, but I've looked at the factory settings from my own Kaiser to get default values and such, so take care with other devices.
