One of the big advantages of the Windows Mobile Pocket PC (and for sure Smartphone) platform is the easy personalization of themes and color sets, if you have the right tool. This right and handy tool for you might be VITO Technology's latest product: VITO Theme Editor and VITO Screen Capture which offers you some basic functions for managing your Pocket PC from your desktop PC.
Both desktop applications run on Windows 2000/XP desktop PCs and needs Windows Mobile 2003 (Second Edition) or Windows Mobile 5.0 on your Pocket PC.
VITO Theme Editor is a powerful tool to customize your Pocket PC by creating new themes. Your can change the color of every interface item and the background picture on the Today screen or in the start menu. The intuitive interface allows you easily change parts of interface and simultaneously watch the changes at the image. Every step you take while creating a new theme is accompanied by onscreen prompts.
VITO Screen Capture is another useful utility for making screenshots of your Pocket PC on the desktop PC. Its main advantage is its simplicity: you just connect your device to the desktop computer and VITO Screen Capture automatically detects your Pocket PC or Smartphone. Now you are one click from capturing the screen image. The screenshot is immediately displayed on the desktop PC and can be saved as a bitmap image file or copied to the clipboard.
Both applications are available from VITA Technology. VITO Theme Editor costs US$ 14.95 while VITO Screen Capture costs US$ 5.95 only. Both applications are available as 14 days trial versions also.
