WM Software

WM New:

Zen Table Tennis for Windows Mobile v1.0

RESETgame announces Zen Table Tennis: the world''s most intense sport!

It is a long way from the pick up ping pong matches in the filthy back alleys of Lhasa to the ethereal mountaintop temple of the Ten Thousand Paddles. But here you are, one match from enlightenment. There is just one problem -- an invisible demon who has seemingly mastered the physics of the sport. Well, two can play at that game. Remember the teaching: "Become the ball."

To play move the paddle with the keys, trackball, or touch. Flick left and right to control return direction and speed.

The winner is the first to score 11 points or higher with a 2 point advantage. Service alternates every two points.

Press the menu key to bring up a menu. Turn sound off and on, set difficulty easy or hard, reset to a new game.

Win or lose, a fortune cookie awaits at the end. You may soon be back for more!


  • Two difficulty levels
  • High scores screen
  • Help
  • Resume play

Never thought I'd see a table tennis game associated with fortune cookies! But, I always liked playing, or trying to play, table tennis. We called it ping pong! This sounds like a great game!!

BabyMonitor v1.3

BabyMonitor for Windows Mobile, by Pavel Ananyev, is a software which allows you to use your smartphone like a baby monitor. This way, you’ll be able to hear the noise made by your little child, when he or she wakes up!

BabyMonitor comes with noise suppression technology, that ignores environmental sounds and focuses on the noises made by the baby. This software also silences the phone’s ringer, in order to avoid waking the baby up when you get a phone call. Once the child makes a sound, the handset will call a preset number and tell the parents that he’s awake.

Enjoy peace of mind when you're away from your baby!

BabyMonitor is also adopted to use your smartphone like a burglar alarm


  • No need to have any special devices
  • Unlimited radius of action
  • Radio noise insensibility

This certainly sounds like an ingenious use for a cellphone! Parents can sleep knowing if their baby awakes and needs attention their phone will ring and let them know! Just be careful to set it up correctly so you don't wake some poor unsuspecting soul, LoL!!

Get it here for $19.95! Much cheaper than the average baby monitor equipment by far!

WM Updated:


PhatWare has updated its PhatPad to version 4.7!

PhatPad is an advanced notes organizer for Microsoft Windows Powered Tablet, Desktop and Pocket PCs. It allows you to draw pictures, jot text notes, or put a mixture of pictures and typed text on a virtual scratch pad. The program uses new digital ink technology, which provides a very smooth ink flow, so it feels like you’re writing on a piece of paper. While working with the note editor, PhatPad offers standard editing commands, such as Undo, Redo, Cut, Copy, Paste; 25%-200% zoom and special Fit to Screen mode; Draw, Select, Erase, and Change modes; customizable pen palette; variable pen width; customizable toolbars; variable page size; and page preview mode. You can export your notes and drawings as bitmap, JPEG or PNG images, email them as file attachments, and transfer them between Pocket PCs via infrared. In addition, PhatPad allows you to store up to 1,000 pages containing a mix of handwritten text, drawings and printed text per single file.

PhatPad also supports reminders and includes a basic shape recognition engine that allows you to draw smooth geometrical shapes, such as rectangles, circles, triangles, straight lines, and arrows. The latest version of PhatPad now allows a user to move the selected strokes around the page; change stroke's color and/or width; resize selected strokes; load background images; change page order; add voice notes; create and manage PhatPad document templates; create dynamic drawings using the animation mode; protect the document with 265-bit strong encryption; view, edit, and print PhatPad documents on the Desktop or Tablet PC.

You can now protect your documents with an encryption that uses a 256-bit long security key and new proprietary encryption algorithms. We recommend that you use a password that is six or more characters long and contains combinations of upper/lower characters, numbers and/or other symbols to make your documents more secure.

If you have CalliGrapher handwriting recognition software installed on your Pocket PC and/or PenOffice software on your Desktop PC or a Tablet PC with Microsoft handwriting recognition software, you may use it to convert your handwritten notes to digital text. You can also search your handwritten notes for specific characters or words. PhatPad also supports the standard Microsoft handwriting recognition engine available on Tablet PCs and in Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.


  • Allows to load background images
  • Allows toolbar customization
  • Supports handwriting recognition (PenOffice and/or CalliGrapher software is required, sold separately); Tablet PC recognizer can be also used
