Ever wished you could speed up the way your Pocket PC operates? Fed up with trawling through the Start menu to access programs or files? Well, this is your lucky day because Pocket Launcher can help you in both these departments.

The program brings a little more order to the Today screen, providing you with quick access to often-used applications and files from a series of tabs at the bottom of the screen. Each tab is formed of an icon relating to a category such as Games, Tasks, Apps and Docs.

The installation process involves Pocket Launcher sifting through your programs and shortcuts to ensure that everything is correctly formed, so this can take a while. However, the program does include a comprehensive guide to setting up the program and managing its options.

Talking of options, there are plenty to play around with, such as customisable tabs, behavours and Gizmos. Be careful when you're editing the tabs that you don't make the icons too big because they're actually pretty ugly when viewed in large format - this is a world away from the Mac OS Dock.

Nevertheless, if you want a simple way of getting quicker access to your files and documents on Windows Mobile, Pocket Launcher is a decent solution.

Pocket Launcher organizes applications into tabbed categories and seamlessly integrates with your Pocket PC or Smartphone, providing an enhanced, customizable user interface. Additionally, launch your documents and manage running tasks!

Pocket Launcher integrates a collection of large, icon-based lists of applications that are installed on a device. Icons represent their respective applications, and when tapped once, the application is launched. The list of icon shortcuts and categories is initially taken from your current layout of the Programs screen, and then copied to another place so that Pocket Launcher can use the shortcut.

Pocket Launcher also links a tab to the My Documents folder, providing quick access to your documents from within the program. You can navigate into sub-folders and add tabs that link to any other folder on the device.

  • Use your Today screen as a tab
