The 3rd program of the Spb Business Pack – Spb Diary – is a replacement for the default Pocket Outlook today-plugins.
The installer lets you choose if the program should disable the Pocket Outlook today plugins automatically. It is recommended that you let it disable them – SPB Diary replaces them completely Now lets take a closer look at the program. You will notice that it is divided into 3 parts: the left column has several tabs to toggle between calender view, tasks, contacts, notes (displays word documents, excel sheets, voice notes and hand drawn notes), messaging and special events.
Now what’s so special? At first, you may notice, that if you have an appointment in the next seven days and Spb Traveler installed, there is a small icon at the right side of the date which shows the weather for this day. Tap on it and a window with a detailed weather view will appear.
The appointments are listed in a neatly arranged way:
The contacts tab lists all contacts of Pocket Outlook in different ways: the default list and photo thumbnails (if you have assigned a photo to the contacts. Those which don’t have a photo will be shown as text) :
The mail-tab is very different from the one Pocket Outlook uses, there isn’t only listed how many unread messages you have. Spb Diary shows all messages stored in the ‘Inbox’-folder with sender, subject and the time when it was received. New messages are shown with a bold font.
Interesting for those who can’t remember birthdays: the ‘special events’ tab shows upcoming anniversary’s and birthdays:
Overall, SPB Diary is a potentially-useful add-on for your PocketPC’s today screen. Get the free trial to see if it suits your taste – if you like it, get it for 20$ in the TamsShop.
