Zooomer enables "pinch to zoom" in the programs you want.

The software scans all .exe on the device. Just select the app you want to be zoom enabled and perform a softreset - here you go: the exe is enabled for pinch to zoom! Currently only user installed (and some few built in) applications can be "zooom-enabled".

Don't worry, the application is in English.

PocketPC client for movie managment PVD

This is the PocketPC Version (Viewer) of PVD the very best program to organize your movies.



This application is a very useful free alternative to those expensive Contact backup applications. It will backup/export your Contacts and SMS

This program includes:
A super-simple, lightweight GUI
The Ability to backup Contacts and SMS
Three modes of exporting: TXT and CSV and VCF
A comand-line based version of the GUI program

To Install:
Simply download the CAB file, and install it
Then navigate to Start Menu > CycloneApps > ExportStudio
and voila!

To use:
First, run the app and you will see 3 areas : What you want to output, the output format, and the folder to write to.
Select what you want to ouput
Make sure to ONLY PUT THE FOLDER in the folder text box, or you will get errors or weird results...
Once set up, click export, and the application will do its thing!
If you want to use the command-line feature, then just run the same EXE as for the GUI with parameters afterwards (see documentation)

While the CSV format can be opened in Excel or the likes, I find that the TXT format is more organized.



Auto send scheduled sms

Basically, what this program does is allow you to program in set Dates and Times for SMS/TXT Messages to be sent. You can program events (with the application) up to 4 years in the future, down to the minute!

This program includes:
A Simple, Easy to Use GUI
Decent RAM/CPU Usage (there is always room for improvement)
An effective automating system (no need to monitor)
IT IS TOTALLY FREE (well, Donations are accepted )
To Install:
Simply download the attached .cab file and place it on your phone.
Run the .cab file and that is it.
To Use:
In the Start Menu, there is a new folder for my applications, navigate to that and there are two links
"CycloneSender" will run the actual application.
"Check for New" will run the automated portion of this app and check to see if there are pending events for the day, and if so, it will take the necessary actions.
When you EXIT the main application, the automated portion of the app is run (so that newly programmed events can be parsed)
This program is accurate to the MINUTE, therefore if you set a message for 17:00 (Yes, it is in 24-hour mode), and the automated portion runs at 16:55:33, then the text message will be sent at 17:00:33 (Implementation for accuracy to the second may be included in newer released)
Known Bugs/Issues:
Unknown Results occur when two messages are scheduled for the EXACT SAME TIME [I will test this out]
When you add a recipient, you cannot delete it (will be fixed soon)


SliderList control

kinetic scrollable list with functional items

the list items can be simple text, check items with and without thumbnail and radio items. All items can be grouped, but do not have to. If you use grouping, you can decide, if the group is collapsible/expandable or not (see also screen shots)
Each item may have ChildItems (despite to the group items, which have *SubItems*). The child items slide in view either by using a ParentItem, which has a "button" to scroll the children in view, or by sliding the finger from right to left after tapping on the item.

If you need another functionality for your item, you can either inherit and extend the item that fits best, or implement IItem on your own.

Some annotations and sources...

- To skin the control you can use PNG graphics. The transparent color will be the bottom right pixel.
- If you use a graphic as background the height of the item is determined my the bitmap.
- If you inherit from TextItem (as it is done by CheckItem) you have to specify the textRect for the underlying item to render the text correctly.
- the SliderList has an event OnFocusedControl that is fired after tipping on an IItem. After this event the event chain for the items is fired.

event OnItemFocused
is fired when an item is clicked

List Items { get; }
Retrieves the list of items.

bool ShowIndicator
Determines if the indicator bar (Scrollbar) is shown

Color IndicatorColor
The color of the indicator.

Bitmap IndicatorBitmap
Is used as the list indicator. If this is used, the height of the indicator is determined by the height of the bitmap. The indicator color is ignored.

int TopIndex
The index of the IItem that is shown on top of the list.

IItem FocusedItem
The IItem that is currently focused.

Image BackgroundImage
The background image to use.

void AddItem( IItem Item )
Add one item to the list

void RemoveItem( IItem Item )
Removed the item from the list

void IndexOf( IItem Item )
Get the index of the item.

void InsertItem( int Index, IItem Item )
Inserts the Item at Index position.

void Clear()
Clears the list of items.

void SlideToChildren()
If the focused IItem has children, the list slides to the left and from the right the list with the children appears.

void SlideToParent()
When a list with children is displayed, it slides out to the right and the list with its parent item appears from the left.

void ScrollInView( IItem Item )
Ensure that the IItem is visible (this could be improved, because the IItem will always be the top item)

void BeginUpdate()
Prevent the list from updating while adding/removing items. If you call it twice, you also have to call EndUpdate twice before the list invalidates itself.

void EndUpdate()
Internally counts back how many BeginUpdate were called. If non is left the control invalidates.

internal Recalculate()
Used by GroupItem to be sure after adding/removing SubItems to have the internal list parameters recalculated

IItem interface
Implement this interface for own items.
Additional to the events and properties of IItem the items can have own events, methods and propertis

Bitmap Background : the background image that is used. If background image is used, the item height is determined by the image. Otherwise it can be set by property or constructor.

string Text : the text to draw.
Font Font : the font to draw the text.
Color TextColor : the text color.
protected Rectangle textRect : internal used rectangle in which the text is drawn.

RadioItem (derived from TextItem)
Bitmap IconUnchecked : the bitmap displayed right hand side of the item as unchecked state
Bitmap IconChecked : the bitmap displayed right hand side of the item as checked state.
bool Checked : get/set checked state.

CheckItem (derived from TextItem)
event ItemChecked OnItemChecked : fired by cheking/unchecking the item
event ThumbnailClicked OnThumbnailClicked : fired by clicking on the thumbnail (if set)
Bitmap Thumbnail : the image that is displayed left hand side (if not set the corresponding event cannot be fired)
Bitmap IconUnchecked : the bitmap displayed right hand side of the item as unchecked state
Bitmap IconChecked : the bitmap displayed right hand side of the item as checked state.
bool Checked : get/set checked state.
bool CompleteItemCheck : get/set whether to check/uncheck the item by clicking anywhere (not thumbnail) on the item

ParentItem (derived from TextItem)
event ThumbnailClicked OnThumbnailClicked : fired by clicking on the thumbnail (if set)
Bitmap Thumbnail : the image that is displayed left hand side (if not set the corresponding event cannot be fired)
Bitmap IconShowMore : the icon used to indicate that children are available.
when clicked on that bitmap the list slides automatically to the childrens list.

GroupItem (derived from TextItem)
Bitmap IconExpanded : the icon used to indicate the list can be collapsed.
Bitmap IconCollapsed : the icon used to indicate the list can be expanded.
bool Expanded : get/set the expanded/collapsed state
AddSubItem( IItem SubItem ) : add a new item to the group.
RemoveSubItem( IItem SubItem ) : remove an item from the group

RadioGroupItem (derived from GroupItem)
takes care that only one RadioItem can be checked. Other items are allowed in that list.

The most common problems
using the items and not setting the Font property!
Using GroupItems and not adding them to the SliderList before adding SubItems to the group
