SMS at Hand for Pocket PC v1.1.3313

SMS at Hand, by All at Hand Software, is the Windows Mobile text messaging application that consists of two main screens. The first one includes a list of Contacts arranged in a smart way: from the most intensively used to the least. At the very top you always see the entities with new messages. When entering any Contact, you see the whole history of its communication with you, including short text messages and calls which are chronologically presented. The conversation screen provides all details of each item and shows the whole SMS text body without the necessity of unrolling it. Use it as a convenient and immediate way of inputting an SMS. When you input a new message through SMS at Hand, you are not limited to one-line edit box like in most similar messengers. Your application adjusts the input box to fit the text while typing.


  • Text messaging based on threaded SMS conversation
  • The possibility of viewing the Contact communication history including the talks and messages sorted chronologically.
  • All SMS and voice communication history is instantly analyzed and presented to you to give you quick view - communication history summary. Thus you gain knowledge that may improve your contacts.
  • The use of system message store - all operations made on the message items are reflected in the system message store and all operations made in other messengers are immediately reflected in SMS at Hand.
  • The “Switch to” function gives the possibility of quickly switching to the conversation where new message has just arrived
  • Auto-sized message editor - the new SMS editor gives you the possibility of controlling the typing of long messages by adjusting its size to text length and watching the conversation history at once.
  • Adaptable interface: backgrounds, items and highlights adapt to the System Color Scheme and make your SMS at Hand interface fully compliant with the template you have selected. You can adjust the font size to your preferences. The application handles portrait and landscape orientation and automatically rescales for any resolution (Hi DPI and HTC G-sensor aware).
  • The list of Contacts is may be sorted from the most intensively used to the least, which makes the average time of reaching the desired conversation much shorter.
  • The “Calendar jump” function allows you to jump to the required day of conversation.
  • The Today Screen notification with direct link after receiving a new SMS
  • Long message texts can be rolled up to 2-line items.
  • You can filter your messages in many ways: only incoming, only sent, all messages, including call.
  • The status of message is depicted by icons
  • SMS at Hand allows you to Archive your SMSes to text file

I'm not big on SMS, but for those who do, this program sounds like one heckuva great app! The list of features is impressive and the ability to 'switch to' the message, store messages, 'calendar jump' to a particular day and the characteristic of the text box resizing in real-time sound like features that just might convince me to utilize SMS!

I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but my wife sent me a forwarded Email last week - a game where you try to place each of the 50ish states into its place in a map of the United States - and I could barely place 10% of them! Now, imagine how much I really know about places OUTSIDE of the U.S.! I'd imagine I'm not alone and that some of you fall right into place by my side in the knowledge bracket, LoL!

Why not play a game or set of games that can improve your knowledge?! That's the goal of this program. Plus, my memory just isn't as sharp as it once was, whether it's just normal aging or the fact that I, like a lot of Amercians, have just gotten LAZY. Grab this program today and improve your mind!!

Get it here for $19.95!!

Well, that's it for the new and updated updates for both Palm OS and WM software this week. Tune in next time to see what's new in the world of mobile software - and try to stay warm and dry! (It's cold here!)
