Xetra recently informed me that his Xbar and Therma utilities for Smartphone 2002 reached version one stage and are available for free download from his homepage!

Xbar
Xbar is a graphic oriented task switcher for Smartphones which lets you switch between tasks and close open tasks/applications as well as it provides you information about phone memory used and since Beta 4 also information about your battery health as well as the current temperature.

Thermo
Thermo shows you the current battery temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit and while this might be relative inexact as long as you hold the Smartphone in your hands its working not that bad if you put it for a while onto a table.

Xmail
In addition Xmail is in development. It enhances your Inbox to be used with more then one account only by adding a script engine to Inbox which lets you select/switch between E-Mail accounts with two clicks only. However, it doesn't adds multiple accounts to Inbox but changes the account information only.

I've tested it in Beta 1 and I lost all SMS as well as all synchronized mails from my Desktop Outlook and not this only. Because for ActiveSync the synced mails was deleted it also removed all that E-Mails from Outlook with the result that I lost 5 days of E-Mails.
Thankfully I had a 1 hour old backup of my Outlook PST file which enabled me to recover all mails. So if you try Xmail, be very careful with it!

All Smartphone utilities are free of charge but Xetra asks for a small PayPal donation so please be so kind if you like what he developed so far.

Cheers ~ Arne
