Microsoft Phone Data Manager Beta

Microsoft India has released a beta version of a synchronisation software for your mobile phone. It will backup your contacts to Windows Live Contacts online so you can access your contacts anywhere. It works with a range of phone models from Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson.

Microsoft® Phone Data Manager Beta is an application that is designed to take away the worry of losing data on your phone - specifically contacts, music, pictures and videos. It does that by synchronizing your phone contacts with Microsoft's Windows Live Contacts store in the cloud, or by helping you download files from the phone to your local computer.

Personally I would rather store my stuff on my PC instead of the cloud since you are literally trapping yourself.

Download the software from Microsoft Phone Data Manager Beta website.

Free English Dictionary for eReader

I found a free dictionary via PalmAddicts which can be used within eReader. It is converted from the WordNet lexical database so there shouldn't be any license issues on free distribution.

No more missed calls and messages

I have lost count on the number times I have missed calls or SMSes on my Nokia phone. I finally found a free missed call/message alert app called Total Patrol via Symbian Guru. The app needs to be Symbian Signed to work which is easily done with the old developer's method of signing or with Open Signed online.

With Total Patrol, you can set the time interval, the sound to use for the alert as well as the choice to enable the vibrator. It also includes a low battery warning alert option which you can set to alert you when your battery level reaches a certain percentage. This is a must have app for all Nokia S60 3rd Ed users since Nokia totally forgot to include such an important feature.

You can download the latest version from the Russian site here [betep.allnokia.ru].

Nextbus consolidated

For those using SBS Transit's iris NextBus, there is now a better all-in-one solution.

I have always thought of making something like this and finally I don't have to since somebody did it. Go to sbsnextbus.appspot.com and you are presented with one entry box. You only need to enter the bus stop number and you can get the full Nextbus schedule of all bus services for that bus stop. Bookmark that result page in your phone's browser and you don't even need to enter anything anymore when you need to lookup that same bus stop. Neat!
