Cool Apps for Windows Mobile on TP2: Midomi (Updated)

Fed up with your unoriginal IPhone mates digging into your Windows Mobile for lack of cool apps? Well I am here to help with some great examples of good looking, useful and touch friendly applications that run on windows 6.0 or above. First up its music recognition app “Midomi”. Now this one is a bit special since its been ripped from a Samsung windows build. The application is available to download here but use at your own risk!

Having played with it this is a really cool application and I look forward to a proper release from Midomi for the Windows platform – not to say this version is not usable but it only seems to work with WiFi (not 3G). I expect your after some screenshots so here you go, the entire lifecycle from inputting your song to getting the results to even buying the tune (the  money punch!).

**UPDATE** Now works over data connection. Thanks to Ikkara from XDA. All you have to do is use your registry editor of choice to change:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Melodis\Midomi\midomiGU IDType

From 3 to 1.

[Reviews] Extensive Reviews of HTC Touch Pro2

htc_touch_pro2_review_23Two are currently up on the web, not in English but one in Russian (of course from mobile-review) and the other in Dutch (from windows phone) some serious amount of depth here. Use Google Translator to read in your language of choice but here are some quick notes from the Review thanks to our friends at…

  • equipped with Straight Talk Technology and People Centric Communication – for improved teleconferencing
  • HTC Touch FLO 3D works now also in landscape orientation!
  • metal band surrounding the edge of the device – similar like in iPhone
  • front facing camera for video calling
  • the only bad thing: lack of 3.5 mm stereo mini plug and only the HTC ExtUSB proprietary headset connector (that is backwards compatible with miniUSB for charging and sync)
  • size: roughly the same as iPhone but thicker due to having QWERTY keyboard with tilt mechanism and keyboard with rows that are shifted (like in real computer keyboard for touch-typing); … but display bigger than in iPhone!
  • display slightly smaller than in HTC Touch HD but still bigger than in HTC Touch Diamond2 and due to having latest enhancements of HTC it is faster and smoother than HTC Touch HD
  • keyboard has backlight
  • the tilt mechanism is fantastic – you can put this phone on the desk and look at display comfortably and use it even very well in this position
  • also features, known from HTC Touch Diamond2, the “zoom bar” under the display – since it doesn’t have multi-touch like Palm Pre or iPhone, users must use this as workaround
  • accelerometer is included
