Jon’s Pocket PC Application Listing!
Oh Lord, If I have a vice it’s Pocket PC Software. Over the years I’ve racked up A LOT of registration keys for these things. So here is the list of software I own, use, or have used, and my comments. Affiliate links for Pocket PC Thougths are provided if available. My preferred store is Handango, although you could use PocketGear just as well. In April 2005 I purchased the Pocket PC Magazine Best Of Everything CD which entitled me to register a lot of software. Software I registered through it are marked with an *.
Unused – I never really used this software as much as I thought I would, or I bought / registered it while it was on sale in case I ever would need it (Obviously, I don’t need it…). If I bought this and never used it (and it h
as no * next to it, indicating that I paid honest to goodness money at the time), you might want to stay clear unless you’re SURE you’ll use it!
Retired – I used it for a period of time, but gradually stopped using it for one reason or another. Perhaps the functionality was built into a new PPC, newer software, etc..
Active – I’m currently using this program full-time
Part-Time – I use this application part-time, or when need calls for it.

|CityTime for Pocket PC||$14.95||Part-Time||Registered it as part of the Best Of Everything CD. Works great when travelling, as calculating Time zones in my head is tricky for me!||ref=”http://www.handango.com/ampp/store/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?siteId=311&jid=DEA9C421FAX5A442243316DD138123F1&platformId=2&productType=2&productId=16103§ionId=0&catalog=30&topSectionId=-1″ target=_blank>Handango|
|CodeWallet Pro*||$29.95||Unused||Registered it, but haven’t used it yet. Looks useful.||Handango|

I use to store all the registration numbers! and all my other life-saving important information. It does this nicely, with a desktop component!

use of it’s lack of enclosure support. Otherwise, rock solid and a nice design!
