Great WM Today screen app on sale

This isn't an affiliate offer, so I have NO financial incentive to bring you this news. I do, however, have other incentives to point out SPB Software House's Pocket Plus 2.5; namely, it's always the first application I add to a new Windows Mobile device! Yup, it's that good. Not only is that good, but it's on sale at PocketGear.com for $15.96. Normal price is $19.95, so this is a pretty hefty discount.

Regular users of SPB software know that they make some great applications for Windows Mobile devices. If you're one of those "in the know", click the post title for the discount info. If you are a newer Windows Mobile user and you're looking for some great Today screen utilities (and more!), click Read More for additional information on why I love this software.

One of the main reasons I like Pocket Plus is due to how much functionality it's packed with! Here's a list, just to give you an idea:

# Today Plug-in:
Tabs. Battery, backlight, memory indicators, drag-and-drop
# File Explorer:
ZIP support, "Folder Up" button, storage card format, file properties
# Close Button:
The close (X) button really closes programs, task manager
# Pocket Internet Explorer:
Multiple windows, full screen mode, save as, view source
# Misc:
Taskbar battery indicator, extended Pocket PC themes, backup/restore

Pocket Plus provides a small, but usable tabbed interface on your Today screen which makes it both accessible and unobtrusive at the same time. My favorite part of the application is the battery meter that runs across the top of your Today screen, providing a nice indication of how much "juice" is left. Many of the options are customizable so you can modify icons for shortcuts, change indicators from actuals to percentages (handy for battery life and memory!), and even choose different Today screen themes.

If nothing else: as a new-ish Windows Mobile user, try the free download. I'm betting that at least 9 out of 10 of you don't regret it. If you're sold on the application, click the post title for the discount details and enjoy!

The price I found on the PocketGear site is still $19.95. When/how did you get the $15.95 price?

It's a little misleading because the dicounted price doesn't appear until the confirmation page during checkout. I wish all companies would apply any applicable disount when you put the item in your cart, but unfortnately not all do. If you are interested in purchasing the software, go through the process up through confirmation. If it STILL doesn't show the discounted price, e-mail me right away and I'll get in touch with PocketGear.com.
