Spb Software House announced Pocket Plus 2.0, the most significant release yet
of this award-winning application. One of the most popular applications on the
market today, Pocket Plus was the #1 selling application at PocketGear for the
last two years. The design philosophy behind Pocket Plus has always been focused
on one task: to address the shortcomings of the Windows Mobile operating system
through strategic enhancements to the existing system. Rather than writing a new
Web browser for instance, Pocket Plus enhances and improves the Web browser that
comes with all Pocket PCs.
The Today screen will never be the same again - Pocket Plus boasts a completely
redesigned Today screen plug-in with myriad of features. Shortcuts to programs,
folders and files can have large or small icons modes, and it's easy to switch
between them by a quick tap and hold. Icons can be re-arranged on the Today
screen with a simple drag and drop, and they can be organized into different
groups using the new tabs feature. New levels of customization are achieved
through the use of Extended Themes, a special type of theme for Pocket Plus 2.0.
Extended themes include the normal background wallpaper and color changes, but
they also include new icons a battery indicator designed to complement the
theme. Extended Themes will make your Pocket PC look better than ever, and with
over 20 free themes included, it's simple to start customizing immediately.
The File Explorer has also been enhanced in several ways - users are now able to
compress files using a quick "zero step" ZIP option available as a tap and hold
option on any file(s). With files full of text-based information such as Word
and Excel files, compression levels can surpass 300%, resulting in significant
savings if the users carry large documents with them. The "Folder Up" button has
been added to the File Explorer to assist in rapidly moving upwards through a
folder structure. Gleaning important file details is now easier with the
addition of a tap and hold Properties option - this allows the user to see the
full file name, file extension, location path, and file attributes (Read-Only,
Hidden, Archive, System, ROM File). Additionally, users can tap and hold on a
folder to get the total size, and quickly format storage cards.
Pocket Internet Explorer has also been enhanced - in addition to the features
included in the first version of Pocket Plus, 2.0 adds several key improvements.
Pictures can now be saved by tapping and holding on any image, source code for
the Web page can be viewed, and HTML pages can be saved for offline use. The
multiple window functionality and full-screen browsing remain as useful as ever.
Overall usability has been enhanced through the use of an always-visible battery
level indicator in the top taskbar. The subtle measurement bar makes it easy to
see your battery level at a glance, but doesn't take up more than a sliver of
valuable screen real estate.
