Smartphone Theme - My List


Are you super organized (or just enjoy appearing to be)? You'll love this modern theme - the color scheme is crisp and cool, and the format is clean and simple. So, you can show a little personality without being too trendy. Very cool :-)

This theme is strictly for Windows Mobile devices with 240x320 resolution screens.

Smartphone Theme - Day Drive


As promised, here is the daytime version of my driving theme - cool huh? Maybe I just love road trips more than the average person, but I tell you, this is a feel-good smartphone theme IMHO. So, I hope the bright orange sunrise will help to lift your spirits :-)

Smartphone Theme - Night Drive


This theme is one of my favorites, especially because I am a highway driver. I just love night drives, so this theme is very calming for me. Even if you prefer day driving (a theme with that motif is coming soon), this is a cool way to give your home screen a little extra something.

That is, if you are using a Windows Mobile device with a landscape screen :-)

As you can see, because of the way the image is designed, I could only produce this theme for 320x240 screens. However, as a Samsung Blackjack II user, I may be a teeny weeny bit biased ;-)

Using Your Smartphone To Help Run Your Home Business - Part One


Home business owners sometimes don't realize the power in having a Windows-based smartphone as part of their technological arsenal. Since the home is also the office, it seems that a laptop and/or desktop are enough. However, there is a gap that can only be bridged by 100% absolute mobility, and a laptop is still pretty big and clunky. The new "netbooks" are smaller, but underpowered and unnecessesary for most home business owners. So, what do you do when you know that you have tasks to complete and correspondence to send but you're not in your home office?

You use your smartphone :-)

As I write this, I am spending some time with my kids, watching one of our favorite shows. My son is on my lap, and my thumbs are moving at the speed of light. So, we can enjoy family time and I can still knock out some necessary work. Sure, only a work-a-holic would think that was good, but I have to b a work-a-holic; I'm a work-at-home mom! There are never enough hours in the day, and sometimes I have to wear many hats at once.

My smartphone makes that possible.

Although I don't do a lot of travelling, I still get a lot of use out of my Windows Mobile smartphone here at the house. And of course, when I am away, I use it to check email and reply to messages on various websites. I even get to do a great deal of social networkingon sites like Twitter and Facebook.

See what I mean?

If you have the entrepreneurial spirit and you realize that you might not be getting enough usage out of your Windows Mobile smartphone, stick around - this blog is exactly what you need to get up to speed!

Do I Really Want the Windows Mobile 6.5 Upgrade When It Arrives?


If I had to make a decision right now, I would say no. I am extremely happy with Windows Mobile 6.1, and from what I have seen so far of it, it doesn't look like I'll be jumping on that bandwagon. Windows Mobile 6.1 is a genuine upgrade from 6.0, improving the user experience while retaining the ease of use and organization that I so love about smartphones in general. This new user interface, although it may not be the final draft, uses a mystical honeycomb format that I think is more about fashion than function.

And it's not all that cute, in my humble opinion.

While the rest of the world is ooh-ing and aah-ing over Windows Mobile 6.5 whenever it does drop (supposedly in Q3 of this year), I think I'll go out for a coffee or something. Maybe Windows Mobile 7 will get back to business and out of Minority Report. I don't know...

Smartphone Theme - Golden (Animated)


I only made this one for 320x240 screens for what I believe to be obvious reasons. However, there are more animated themes coming soon, and they will be for as many resolutions as each design looks good on, you know? Jill Scott sings about 'living your life like it's golden', so I want to encourage smartphone users who do to keep on doing it. It's a great philosophy, and I think this is a great smartphone theme.

However, in order to install the .cab file properly, you have to have the Madbeetle animation plugin, which is available RIGHT HERE. There is a free trial, but I'm sure you'll want to go ahead and shell out the couple bucks it costs to get the full plugin so you can download all the new free animated smartphone themes here as they become available!

Download the Madbeetle animation plugin.

Smartphone Theme - Heart Sky


This one is a little girly, but in a subtle way. I love a calming sky, and when you look closely, you see that the clouds from a perfectly charming heart right in the middle of your screen.

How cool!

Download the .cab file that corresponds with your phone's screen dimensions:
