[UPDATED 6/9/09]This iPhone App = This WinMo App

I'm starting this thread from what has resulted from this discussion: Where's all the good stuff like iPhone and Android have?!

I think this will give everyone a better understanding of what is and isn't available for WinMo and maybe get some developers pointed in the right direction. Maybe I should start learning C++/C#...
I'll keep this first post updated with results. If you have a better suggestion for the Windows Mobile Solution than whats listed be sure to let us know!

Here's our first challenge:

Re: This iPhone App = This WinMo App

I don't really understand your question but if you want to be able to use the websites with special interfaces for iphone like gmail, orb, facebook then you just do this mod.

iPhone ID Spoof

I use it on my Diamond and it works great.

Its not a question. I created this thread so that if people see an app for the iPhone and would like to have it on their Windows Mobile phone they can post it here and get some help from other members who have lots of experience and knowledge about WinMo apps. While the thread you posted does help with the interface on certain websites it doesn't provide an app that displays similar information as the Snow Reports app that sherv is asking for. I hope this better explains the concept of this thread.

Re: This iPhone App = This WinMo App

I am not sure if we are talking freeware only or just apps for WM that do what the i-app in question does, but Fizzweather gives ski updates:

Re: This iPhone App = This WinMo App

I'd give a +1 to free apps. If its not free I'm not gonna complain. At least its out there for WinMo.

Re: This iPhone App = This WinMo App

What would be nicer is if developers came together for something like this. They could make a living off of it and we'd have all the awesome apps we requested.

It can always be requested in these forums, XDA has a lot of great developers there as well!! You never know untill you ask!!!

Some do it for the love of accomplishing a goal...look at A_C over at XDA....( http://www.ac-s2.com/ For those not in the knoa)...I am sure he gets a lot of donations, but I am also sure he hasn't quit his day job, he loves what he does with those apps!!!!

P.S. I just covered image viewers, locking mechanism, callerID screen, and MP3 player!!!

Re: This iPhone App = This WinMo App

Im not talking about donations. Im talking about starting a paid service. We get apps, they get money. Everyone is happy. A central app store would definitely help as well. If they can get that gecko app to be less terrible, it could work.

Re: This iPhone App = This WinMo App

Thanks for starting this thread, Dannzeman! I'm gonna go play with my friends' iPhones to see what really is lacking and if it's anything substantial or not.

edit: So with regards to the ski condition app I requested, Fizz Weather looks like a great program but it's really not what I'm looking for...it appears to me that the iPhone apps are mostly very singular in their function and that can help keep them cheap/free. Fizz is $17 whereas the iPhone app is $1 or 2. Fizz does a whole host of weather reporting whereas Ski Condition (or whatever it's called) only reports on snowfall and such. There are already a plethora of weather apps, hell, my Touch Pro has a built-in one which is sufficiently detailed for my needs...
