Well, most Singaporeans are pretty crippled recently due to a law suit between Singapore Land Authority and Virtual Maps, thus the mapping service from is not available currently.

So when I was at Auckland for a firewall deployment, the customer was showing his Blackberry with an mapping application, Mgmaps or Mobile Gmaps. He’s using it with a built-in GPS and the best part is, the maps are stored in his memory card. Offline browsing !

Right, I’m slow with this SIP VOIP stuff.  When I subscribed to Pfingo SIP service, I was searching high and low for the client for UIQ3, since Sony Ericsson P1 is supported.

Ah, remember my previous post on the iLock for Java enabled phones like my Sony Ericsson P1i. It was Java based, so it’s like executing an application to key lock your phone, it’s slow and ineffective.

Now here comes the newest beta of the iPhone iLock by Kwull. It’s a UIQ3 app and it’s fast, upon unlocking, it stays in the background with minimal memory resources.

GDesk has a new version release 0.14.

v0.14 – 30th September 2007
Warning – this version has a major change and needs plenty of testing. If you don’t want to risk potentially large bugs and problems it might be best to wait a few days to see what comes up!
Either way it’s a good idea to keep v0.13 installs handy and back up your design before installing v0.14!
Note – this version introduces a slight change to the plug-in interface code so you’ll need to install new versions of plug-ins!

As the warning above, “Proceed with caution !!”

GDesk has been updated again. I really love this application.

Change log

Version 0.13(20th September 2007)

  • Now returns to the correct page
  • Invalid app selection no longer leads to endless error messages
  • Plug-in shortcuts now work
  • Jog dial order setting added (see Design Menu)
  • AgnView – ‘days to’ now rounded up instead of down
  • AgnView – fixed maximum number of entries bug


As you can see, more Control Panel shortcuts are available, in my GDesk design, I created large icons for common used functions for quick finger access and smaller icons for stylus tapping.

Found this program call iLock in Forums, It sort of similar to the slide lock like iPhone.

I installed on my Sony Ericsson P1i and it works fine.

Amazing, I found GDesk, then I found mShell.

mShell is a complete, unlimited m implementation with comprehensive function library. m scripts and own modules can be run, developed, and communicated.

In addition, it contains the applications mSupervisor (m script autostart, SMS control of mShell) and mViewer (m file type recognition).


Neat huh. Shall explore more, hear from me soon ya….

I just saw this in the Ipmart Forums and in Softpedia and it looks like a great Symbian UIQ 3 application. Getting bored with my default “Today” application, I decided to give GDesk a try.

“GDesk is a free, customizable and extendable desktop system. With GDesk, icons can be placed on the desktop representing applications, page links and plug-ins; these can then be launched by tapping them. Plug-ins can be added at any time and as required; further plug-in functionality will be provided over time.
