Introduction

What This Page Is

  • This page is designed to be a list of applications that are useful to a Kaiser owner whether they've had their device for 1 day or 6 months, but is geared more towards new Kaiser owners. If you post software here, please post a link to a thread on XDA about that software or post a link to the webpage of the developer. This may eventually evolve to being a list of recommended software for any WM6 user though, but this started from the Kaiser community and what software apps that they commonly use and recommend.

What This Page Is NOT

  • This is not designed to be a repository of .cab files
  • This is not designed to be a major review site of software
  • This is not designed to be the ultimate location of all WM6 apps available. Go to sites like Freeware PocketPC, FreewarePPC, or PocketPC Freeware for all PPC apps.
