Seeing as there wasn't many NEW WM programs added to the store lately, I thought I'd take this opportunity to point out a few FREE apps for your WM device!

Down Call

With Down Call, you can schedule a call to a phone number at a specific time.

It's very useful if you need to call and wake up someone in the morning!

To install, copy the content of the archive to your phone and run the executable to schedule a call.

I've read a few posts about the program, some mentioning making prank phone calls to wake someone, hehe! But, I would have to believe there is a valid use for this program!

Get it here for FREE.


Now, this is one program that I WILL be checking out for myself - in hopes of streaming music to my A2DP capable headset for free!

New version 1.0 beta is available for download!

If you have a bluetooth headset, then BtMusic will redirect all your audio to the wireless headset.


  • Use BtMusic to redirect PocketPC audio to a bluetooth headset

It will even resume the redirection after a phone call. So if you get a call while listening to an audio book or music, when you finish the call, it returns you to your audio! Nice!

It's in Beta, but FREE, so get it while you can!

iContact v0.75

iContact is a simple contacts applications for your Windows Mobile device which will help you scroll your contact list in iPhone style by sliding down your finger in the screen! It's really amazing and if you get used to it iContact could be one of your everyday apps.

The app is very basic, it only lists contacts in scrollable list. Use it for accessing your contacts by scrolling the list with fingers, similar to iPhone. Just tap, drag and release.

To select a contact, just tap and release, and standard contact details dialog should appear.
