Is Windows Mobile 6.5 still a good operation system when Window Phone 7 is just around the corner? Let’s find out with these applications. No matter you are using US T-Mobile, Europe or Asia HTC HD2 version…

Top 10 HTC HD2 Applications

1. Android 2.2 Froyo for HTC HD2 is the top most must install operating system on HTC HD2. With it, you can explore a new world in Google Android. Lot of interesting Android applications can be run with your HTC HD2 now.

2. Cookie Energy Custom ROM will unlock the true potential of Windows Mobile. It is using the latest Windows Mobile 6.5.X build and come with lot of useful pre-installed applications.

3. Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5 is the essential application for Windows Mobile. Lot of applications requires it in order to run properly. A must installed application for all Windows Mobile phones.

4. Microsoft Office Mobile 2010 will unleash the true power of Microsoft office. You have SharePoint Workspace Mobile 2010 in this edition.

6. PHM Registry Editor will let you modify Windows Mobile registry setting. Unlock advanced features of certain application. Make your HTC HD2 becomes a better phone out there.

7. PIM Backup v2.8 is a backup application that allows to backup / restore personal information stored on Windows Mobile devices. It will backup contacts, appointments, tasks, messages, calls.

8. G-Alarm is a finger-friendly and reliable alarm clock for Windows Mobile. A nice replacement for Windows Mobile 6.5 built in alarm clock.

9. SenseTasks is a finger friendly Windows Mobile 6.5 Outlook Tasks replacement. A must install because built in Outlook Tasks is not finger friendly even with HTC HD2 large 4.3″ screen.

10. Garmin Mobile XT for Windows Mobile Phone is a must have offline GPS application for me. A perfect combination with free maps from MalFreeMaps.

11. Opera Mobile 10 is my default browser because it has Adobe Flash Lite 3.1 built-in. And the speed and ease of multitask with tabs buy me off to use it instead of 9.7 which support pinch and zoom.

12. uZard Web P is a server-based Web browser for Windows Mobile. A better full desktop view browser than limited access Skyfire.

20. Traditional / simplified Chinese on HTC HD2 WWE ROM will let you read Chinese on WWE ROM and even let you write Chinese.

    22. Call Emergency (Marketplace) – all emergency numbers in all countries. Great for travelers like me.
    23. Roam Freely (Marketplace) – stops roaming charges in foreign countries.
    24. IMDb Mobile – for all movie buffs, this app is close to the original PC version.
    25. Lyrics Finder – what are the words and who sang it can be found here.
    26. Pandora – great free music site that you set up, especially good at the gym.
    27. AP Mobile – quick rundown of the world’s news events.
    28. SoftReset – allows a soft reset with just one push.
    29. Deluxe Moon – all phases of the moon are revealed. Great for teachers.
    30. uConvert – the absolute best converter of everything from currency to temperatures for the HD2.

  2. hi, I saw you had the chinese language for the htc hd, do you know of an app for adding japanese? I just got my htc hd 2 last week and im feeling somewhat lost 🙁 I wouldn’t call myself technologically inept, however, learning about this phone seems to be a bit more difficult than my first computer. there seems to be so much potential but im having problems getting from a to b. any tips or tricks would be welcome 😉

  3. I am very much impressed with your achievements and i have gained a lot from this site. i need to know just two things.

    1- how can u mute the volume of key pad while dialing the number as it doesnt look nice when u r in a meetign or some place like that.

    2- i need to know how can i use the GPS or maps while i am not connected to the internet. i have E71 which has GPS that works without using the internet. atleast the positioning is working.

    thanks for your kind action and quick reply on these issues.

  4. The ones you mention aren’t really ‘apps’ – they’re mainly tweaks and housekeeping tools!

    What about these (mainly from Marketplace):

    Premier League 2010 – gorgeous marketplace app for the english football
    Pool rebel – favourite game
    Magic Guidebook – like the iphone app Qype Radar; read/write reviews of places around you
    Evernote for an amazing ideas locker for your mind! Helps me remember everything.
    Train Track for the Uk rail system and getting to work on time
    Myplayer for downloading / watching iplayer content
    Co-pilot for not getting lost driving

    More *apps* please 🙂

  5. Very very reliable source of apps. I bought a htc hd2 last month an bumped it up with most of these apps, and now my phone has morphed and evolved into a good companion capable of tackling and assisting you on a everyday basis.
    One thing though I know Android 2.2 Froyo is out but is there any upgrade since or any version specifically for the htc hd2 without problems?

  6. Hi, i had tried to install froyo 2.2 on my hd2 but it fails. i had installed Flash HardSPL3 and Radio ROM Leo_RADIO 2.08 prior to this installation. after running clrcad.exe i executed haret.exe, the installation
    process started but the progress is to slow. gives error “failed to find rootfs on sd card”.
    Please suggests solution.
    Also tell me how to revert back to original win mobile 6.5 since i had installed leo energy rom.
