One of the real benefits of the Windows Mobile Smartphone platform is its multi-tasking capability we all know from our PCs. Therefore it makes sense to have an easy to use task-switcher on the device (like Alt-Tab on the PC) which - unfortunately - Microsoft neither provides for Pocket PCs nor for Smartphones. Therefore VITO Technology released TaskSwitcher for Windows Mobile Smartphones. It's an already well-known and highly popular utility for Pocket PC users and now it is ready to conquer the new platform.
VITO TaskSwitcher allows you to switch easily between your running tasks or stop them from a pop-up list. You can do it using only your joystick:
- Call TaskSwitcher list using the assigned button
- In the list navigate with joystick buttons (or stylus if you wish)
- To switch to a highlighted item press Enter
- Autoselect function also automatically switches to a highlighted item after 5 seconds
- To close the highlighted application press the right navigation button
- To close the active application or all running applications choose "Close active" or "Close all"
- To close TaskSwitcher press the left navigation button
VITO TaskSwitcher now supports all Windows Mobile Smartphones and is available for US$ 4.95 but also available as a fully functional 14 days trial version.
