The Touch Pro2 "Must Have" Application List...

I have had the Touch Pro2 for a bit now and have been loading several of my favorite applications on the device. I wanted to provide some feedback and maybe also gather some feedback from those who have been installing applications. I hope by the time our brothers down in the States get their Touch Pro2 units they'll have a good place to start for applications.

Here's what I have installed so far:

Garmin XT 5.0 - all I'll say is why would one need a GPS in his car or a standalone device with this beautiful screen! It is absolutely fantastic!
http://www.garmin.com

Total Commander - needless to say - it's the standard...
http://www.ghisler.com/pocketpc.htm

Speed Booster - my overall application speed has increased - its rather nice!
http://teksoftco.com/

Bing - I like it for basic movie listings and general directions
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...4b7d72626f0#tm

Advanced Config - easy modifications without the heartburn of registry hacking
http://www.touchxperience.com/en/adv...downloads.html

Communicator Mobile - this is only good if you have a OCS Server but it's great needless to say!
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

SOTI Pro - great for controlling your Touch Pro2 from your desktop... they updated the skins for the TP2!
http://www.soti.net/default.asp?Cmd=...s&SubCmd=PCPro

XDA Wifi Internet - great way to turn your Touch Pro2 into a Wifi Hotspot!
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?p=4170499

LiveMesh - share files between your desktop PCs and windows Mobile with an Online OS type experience
http://www.mesh.com

HDWallpaper - make stunning HD wallpapers for your Touch Pro2 in full resolution perfection!
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ghlight=hdwall

Xtrakt - a great little game for your TP2! Graphics are smoking hot!
http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/ppc-...ad-xtrakt.html

CorePlayer - a must have for all video playback!
Optimal Bit Rate for MP4 (H.264) = Resolution 640x288
Data Rate: 1,6 Mb/s
Optimal Bit Rate for DIVX = Resolution 720x322
Data Rate 2,0 Mb/s
http://www.coreplayer.com

Flash on your TP2 with Opera Mobile 9.5 and 9.7
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=544770
ONE file to install - all settings and cab optimized.

There's plenty more out there so all the other Telus (and European/Asian/General Unlocked) users of the TP2 may want to add their favorites.

Hope this thread is useful for you!

More software:

Showcase Task Switcher
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=525010
I've been using it for a while - it's really a nice application switcher. Finger Friendly!

Yarboo
http://www.freewareppc.com/games/yarboo.shtml
Very nifty Yahtzee game - uses Flash Lite (should be a link attached...)

G-Config
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=487991
Easy to use application portrait / landscape applications... light and friendly - sets up horizontal and vertical application layout using the G-Sensor.

Resco Photo Viewer Alpha
http://www.resco.net/downloads/pocketpc/viewer/en/PhotoViewerALPHA_p.ARM.CAB
A fantastic application for uploading pictures to facebook, browsing photos, and soon photo editing. The best looking photo package out right now IMHO for Windows Mobile (and it's still Alpha!) Free download.

MSS Converter
http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/ppc-download-mss-converter-v1-02.html
convert... anything...

Outlook Cleaner
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=523804
This is a clean-up tool for Outlook - duplicate contacts, missing information, naming convention... very good application if you have over 350+ contacts in POUT/Outlook like I do :-S

How does the Slingplayer look on the TP2?

I am getting my TP2 Oct 1 (that's when my 150.00 rebate becomes valid), and I am wondering if it fits nicely.

It is a double sword. So far, only used it a few times on the TP2. I can say unlike the Mogul days the picture is smooth which is similar to the TP. Very happy with the performance. The bad news - they are not yet supporting the screen size. Even in vertical mode the picture is small. I plan to go back to the sling web site to see if there is another windows version for a phone with a similar screen size and see if it is improved.

Anyone else solve the screen size issue? All TP2 mobile Sling users should email sling so they know they have a customer base they need to support.
