    Hi all,

    Since I've been geting so many requests/questions from past Palm OS TAKEphONE users about making a Windows Mobile version of TAKEphONE, I have decided to check it out.

    I would like to create a thread for people to comment on:

    1. The need for such an applciation.

    2. Any feature you think it should have.

    3. How should the user interface be:
    How will the app be launched - should it be a plugin within the "Today" screen ? or should it be (like on the Palm OS ver) a stand-alone app assigned to a specific button ?

    4. Any other input...

    Thanks in advance -
    Shimon

    Wow Shimon. I would love this. I miss TAKEphONE on my 650...have since moved on to a PPC-6700. I guess my request would be just to have it operate as the Palm version does. WM5 does have a similar "smart dialer" already, which is a huge timesaver for me (have over 500 contacts) but TAKEphONE's searchable fields would be my most requested feature. With the stock smart dialer, you can only search first, last name and the company (I believe). It would be tremendously useful if I could search contacts based on a little bit of information (i.e. I don't know the person's name or company, but I do remember they are on Alice Street...so I search for "ALI" and it pops up).

    I think assigning it to the phone button like Palm would be fine. Heck, if it isn't too code-heavy, just add an option for a today screen plugin (some WM folks are particular with endless options, plugins, etc).

    Let us know what the status is! BTW, you might want to chit-chat with Marc and Jeff and convince them to port Chatter and Volumecare to WM5 as well! (wishful thinking).

    Sorry for not following directions and posting to your other thread. I'm glad you posted there also since I wouldn't have looked here. I've been missing TAKEphONE for nearly 2 years now.

    Please, please, please create a WM version!!!

    The sad thing about WM is that after a while, users begin to settle for WM limitations and what is already available on the platform. I am no different and gave up on finding needed function. Palm OS users push the limits and there are always developers out there ready to bridge the gap between needs and status quo.

    I agree w/Eric. Please provide both a plugin and an app which can be launched. I'd probably add it to my start menu instead of putting it on a button depending on the size of the plugin -- just one more click.

    Now if we can only get someone to write a SelecText "hack".

    Shimon,

    I only want you to work on a WM version because it means you'll be more profitable and stay in business longer providing us with more great Palm OS goodies!

    yes please. My 5 year old Nokia on the ATT TDMA network had a calling card feature where in I could save the access+pin in one location and make any call from the contacts using the calling card. Wonder why MS did not incorporate it in windows 5. Would love it if you could develop it - eternally grateful!!!

    One feature I miss from TakePhone is the CallingCards

    I had TakePhone as my home application on the Treo650, but I gave on the Treo because the reception, sound quality and no 3G. Tried to go without PDA phone for a while, but ysterday bought a HTC Trinity (dopod 838 pro).
    It's difficlt to find my marks but the reception is 199 times better.

    Give me TakePhone (and Ultrasoft Money) and I'll be all set.

    Shimon, any update on TakePhone for Windows Mobile or other platforms, e.g. Symbian (Nokia E61 or E62) or Blackberry? I really need to upgrade my Treo 650 but I would hate to be without TakePhone. I'm sure many others feel the same way.

    Hi,

    Afraid I tried 3 times to start this, but the OS is just way too slow - seemed to take the point right out of using TAKEphONE...

    Thanks for the fast reply. I'm surprised that Windows is slower than Palm OS(?) I was thinking about buying the new Treo PRO but would need the calling cards support which I dont know if it's supported in the new Windows OS.
