Your Own Mobile Fax Machine with Wizcode PhotoCopy Mobile 1.4

Posted by Don Tolson in "Windows Phone Software" @ 07:30 AM

Product Category: Imaging Software
Manufacturer: WizCode
Where to Buy: Mobihand [affiliate]
Price: $14.95USD. A fully-functioning 30-day trial version is available.
System Requirements: WM5 or above; Works with touch or non-touchscreen phones; resolutions from 240x240 to 800x480. Requires phone/pda to have built-in camera and have approximately 5Mb of free RAM to run.
Specifications: Uses approximately 1.5Mb of memory.

Pros:

  • Simple to use, very finger friendly;
  • Can produce single or multipage PDFs;
  • Works in colour or b&w (best results are in b&w, depending upon light levels).

Cons:

  • Output is dependent upon the quality of the photo images -- there is no image enhancement capability built into the application;
  • Only produces an image-imbedded PDF -- no OCR to translate content into text.

Summary: This is my kind of application. It does one simple thing, it does it well, and it's simple and easy to use. Wizcode's Photocopy Mobile turns your phone into a mobile photocopier/fax/scanner with the ability to convert an image taken with the camera into an emailable PDF document. Now, you can easily share those wonderful whiteboard ideas with the rest of the workshop, or send in that latest signed contract to head office, right from your phone! Read more...

Microsoft Releases Windows Mobile 6.1 Localized Emulator Images

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Developer" @ 02:30 AM

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...&DisplayLang=en

"The Windows Mobile 6.1 Emulator Images package adds emulator images to Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio 2008 that let you test applications for Windows Mobile 6.1. For general information about writing software for Windows Mobile, please see the Windows Mobile Developer Center. The emulator images can also be used as standalone without Visual Studio. They can be accessed through the Start Menu shortcuts."



The Windows Mobile 6.1 localized emulator images are currently available in US English only, which doesn't quite match Microsoft's usual definition of "localized", although you can probably expect that to change over the coming weeks. The Standard (Smartphone) and Professional (Pocket PC) images weigh in at 184.9MB and 272.2MB respectively, and include some new resolutions: 320 x 320, 400 x 240, and 440 x 240 for Standard, and 240 x 400 and 480 x 800 for Professional. Note that the images work standalone, so if you're eager to poke around Windows Mobile 6.1 to see what's new and improved while waiting for your carrier/manufacturer to release an update, this is your ticket. Developers, if you want full integration with Visual Studio, be sure to grab the Windows Mobile 6 SDK prior to installing the images.
