PDAStatus 1.2.3

View status information on your Today screen


  • Customizable icons
  • Backlight manager
  • Shows remaining credit


  • Would be nice to be able to map anything onto the status bar


There are lots of areas of your mobile device that it's nice to be able to keep an eye on, but the default Windows Mobile interface isn't really cut out for this.

PDAStatus addresses this issue, allowing you to view all manner of information about your Pocket PC's status from the Today screen, through a series of large, customizable icons.

Once installed, the application makes it much easier to check information without having to delve through the Windows Mobile menu system.

The program displays lots of useful information including battery charge, available memory (ROM, RAM and external card space), and even the amount of balance remaining to make calls if you're on a pay-as-you-go plan.

The software also includes a backlight manager, allowing you to manage when your light comes on, and giving you the opportunity to save precious power by doing so.

It's pretty easy to set everything up and I really like the fact you can customize everything from the icons themselves to the position they appear on the Today screen.

It would be nice to be able to map other information onto here, such as unread messages or news alerts.

Nevertheless, PDAStatus certainly provides an interesting way of presenting status information on your Today screen.

PDAStatus is a small plugin for the Windows Mobile 'Today' screen. It contains customizable set of status icons, including battery information, ROM, RAM, and SD/CF card.

It also shows current level of display backlight (shows value depending on AC/Line mode), and on tap opens device-specific backlight manager.

The program, even shows current SIM card balance, query and reply parsing options are customized in plugin settings. On tap proceeds immediate query.
