Birthday2Calendar for Windows MobileThis free application is a fix for something that Microsoft should have fixed long time ago. Even from my first Windows Mobile device the Mpx200 automatically adding the birthdays of your contacts onto your Calendar was a problem unless you sync with Microsoft Outlook. So what is the solution for all those of us who don't want to use MS Outlook to sync their phones, well it is simple and it is called Birthday2Calendar.
Not surprisingly the developer said that this was his first application for Windows Mobile, since there is a small code example that does exactly this included in the WM5 SDK. And the developer used this to create more user friendly application that will help a lot of us out there.
Birthday2Calendar does not create duplicates for the Calendar birthday entries you already have, it will only create entries for birthdays that aren't currently in the calendar. However, if you have a birthday alert set up, but it's not in the form of the contact's "FirstName LastName's Birthday" - it will duplicate it. Beside that Birthday2Calendar for Windows Mobile is one really useful application that will fix something that was supposed to be fixed a long time ago.
e-Natives Showcase - Finger Friendly Task Managere-Natives Showcase is a Finger Friendly Task Manager for Windows Mobile that seems to be the only free stylus free task manager for TouchFlo 3D / Manila 2D powered mobile phones that really works.
Aside from doing what it is supposed to do, Showcase Task Manager looks really good and the interface of the application is designed in a way that reminds us to those native applications usually found on our Windows Mobile HTC devices.
We have tested so many Task Managers and from those that are free and that really interest us, e-Natives Showcase seems to be the only one we feel comfortable using only with our fingers, so while men have bulky fingers, women on the other side have nails and that makes pressing those small icons much easier on the other task managers.
e-Natives Showcase - Finger Friendly Task Manager for Windows Mobile Professional devices is developed by Ahmad Amarullah from e-Natives Technology using SmartToolkit as a development tool.

GPS Speedometer for Windows Mobile 6
GPS Speedometer for Windows Mobile 6 is a very simple GPS based application that does a very simple thing, measures the speed of your while you are currently driving. GPS Speedometer for Windows Mobile uses the built in GPS receiver in your mobile phone to calculate the speed you are moving with.

Stay Unlock for Windows MobileIf for some particular reason you need to keep your phone unlocked, or you are disturbed by the automatic phone locking of your Windows Mobile device, Stay Unlock is a simple and quite useful solution for you. What the program basically does is removing the time outs set for auto locking your phone.
Stay Unlock runs in silent mode, and will never prompt. A log file is created instead if you want to inspect it. Stay Unlock will also allow override of time out value enforced by Exchange Server. This will address situation whereby users wants the device lock function but prefer a longer time out threshold value than what’s defined by their IT admin.
Stay Unlock will also default the timeout to 24 hours, when you set “Always Stay Unlock. There are technical and security reasons behind this implementation, instead of completely disabling device lock function.
However, you can still turn off device lock by going to Settings > Personal > Lock, and turn off the checkbox “Prompt if unused for”. Stay Unlock is not responsible for your action to unsecure your device!
