Hearts for WM Professional v3.00F

ZingMagic Limited has released Hearts for WM Professional 3.00F. Hearts is a classic card game, full of skill and strategy. Unless you attempt to �Shoot the Moon�, simply avoid collecting the Hearts.

There can be few things in life which are more frustrating than being beaten by luck! To have your card playing ability and experience fall victim to a lucky deal can cause players much irritation. I say AMEN to that!! Hearts, however, is a game which regularly brings victory for skilled players over their less skillful opponents through its depth of strategy.

  • Multiple levels of play. Each computer player can have any strength from beginner to expert.
  • Best of breed artificial intelligence engine, better than most PC Hearts engines.
  • Multiple display and card playing options to suit your individual preference.

Tank Ace 1944 for Pocket PC v1.0

Do you like to drive tanks over rugged terrain, lob artillery shells into the far hills, and blow up lethal opponents lurking around every bend? If so, then Tank Ace 1944 by RESETgame is the game for you.

In Tank Ace 1944 you command a World War II tank charging to occupy the enemy capitol. Allied and Soviet Tank Aces advance on Berlin; German Aces advance on London and Moscow. At least that''s what the orders from HQ say. But since you face overwhelming odds and are forced to scavenge supplies as you go, you might just find yourself retreating instead.

The goal of each round of play is to clear the enemy from a map sector and drive them off the far bank of a river so that your side can cross and advance. Skills you will need to accomplish this are a working trigger finger, the ability to navigate West or East (left and right on the overhead map), and driving ability sufficient to crash into other vehicles.

A status panel shows the number of enemies left, rounds remaining, fuel, and armor strength. The last three can be replenished by ramming (not shooting) an enemy truck. If you run out of fuel or armor, or for some reason drive your tank into the water, in addition to an untimely death you will be forced to retreat one sector. If you wipe out the enemies you will advance one sector, retaining any excess supplies you have scavenged. The game ends when you take the enemy capitol, or they overrun yours. Either way the brass will want to have a talk with you.


  • Play one of three aces: Allied, German, or Soviet.
  • Three tanks: Sherman, Tiger, or T34, each with movable turret and cannon.
  • Destroyable 3D landscape.
  • Perspective or overhead view.
  • Three difficulty settings.
  • Enemy trucks carrying rounds, fuel, and armor.
  • Save / Resume game.

WM Updated:

Touch Commander v3.0

Mobilityflow has updated its Touch Commander to version 3.0.

Touch Commander is a small software utility that provides fingertip control for PDAs and smartphones for more efficient, natural touch screen navigation. Just like an iPhone and TouchFLO, Touch Commander lets you browse and scroll a PDA interface, launch applications by recognizing and responding to the sweep of a finger across the screen.

With just a touch, you can make quick calls to photo contacts, start applications, open folders for browsing, get and send SMS, play favorite video and view photos. All basic settings of a PDA are but a touch away. The application is fully customizable, and you can set up all elements of the menu according to your own preferences. Other key features include Full Screen mode, animated transition effects between screens, and an ability to resize screen elements.

The interface of Touch Commander delivers the best features of the legendary Apple iPhone and HTC Touch with its TouchFLO technology. Touch Commander can be installed on any model of a communicator, powered by Windows Mobile 5 or upwards. But the biggest specialty lies in the price, which is nothing compared to the price of an iPhone or HTC Touch with Touch FLO.

Touch Commander is the cure to iPhone envy. Even if you don't have a few spare hundreds, you can still resist the Apple charmer's curves and 'touchy-feely' navigation if you install Touch Commander onto your PDA or smartphone. This will make even an old school handheld or smartphone look and feel so much more stylish and awesome!


  • Touch Control - scroll lists, open and minimize applications by finger sweeps
  • Today Plugin with clock, weather, launcher and more
  • Cube-like Multipage Launcher
  • Finger-friendly Start Menu
  • Titlebar Battery Indicator
  • and much more...
