Spb Pocket Plus is a software that enhances the Pocket PC operating system with enhancements that has been requested by many Pocket PC users but still missing in all the official OS updates.

When Microsoft first released the Pocket PC 2002 platform, it became quickly apparent there were gaps in the functionality that users were craving: the "close" button not actually closing applications (instead they were minimized), Pocket Internet Explorer unable to function in full-screen mode or with multiple windows, repeating alarms were removed (making the Pocket PC a poor alarm clock), and a smattering of other issues.

After six months of research and development into these user issues, Spb Pocket Plus was born. With a singular goal of improving the Pocket PC experience for users by subtly altering the operation of key applications, Pocket Plus will rapidly become one of the "must have" applications for the platform.

Features:

  • Close (X) button will really close programs
  • Easy to use task manager as a pop-up menu on the X button
  • Multiple Pocket Internet Explorer windows
  • Full screen mode in Pocket Internet Explorer
  • Repeating sound for appointment alarms
  • Battery monitor on the Today screen
  • Storage monitor on the Today screen
  • Customizable program shortcuts on the Today screen
  • Localized to main languages

Pocket Plus is available for US$ 9.95 from PocketGear. A trial version is available also.
