Total Commander 2.0 Windows Mobile File Utility

I haven’t tried this myself. But, it looks interesting with a beta-level of support for Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PCs and Smartphones.

Total Commander

Version 2.0 is freeware. There is also a shareware version 6.55a. Total Commander provides a rich set of file handling features, a text editor, and ftp client (among other features).

Calc98: Free Pocket PC Calculator

The calculator software that Microsoft puts in every Pocket PCs’ firmware is amazing. It is amazing that after generations of Palm-size PC and Pocket PC releases it is has not been enhanced one single bit since its release years ago. Thank goodness for the freeware calculator…

Calc98 for Pocket PC

This powerful calculator is a great app for anyone who needs more than Microsoft’s 4 function calculator delivers. Although Calc98’s list of supported devices doesn’t mention Windows Mobile 5 based Pocket PCs, I’m running it without any problems on my K-JAM Pocket PC Phone Edition.

MyWaves: Free Mobile Video Service

Today’s mobile freebie is a video service (in beta) for mobile devices…

MyWaves

The service works sign-up indicates it works on all four of the largest mobile carriers in the US (AT&T Wireless/Cingular, Sprint PCS, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless).

Here comes my caveat: Part of the sign-up process requires providing your mobile phone number. That makes sense. But, I’m wary of handing over a mobile phone number to a company I don’t know much about. However, according to their press release, 20,000 people per week have been signing up since October. So, perhaps, my reservation is a minority opinion.

If you’ve been using it, let me know how it is working for you.
