A friend showed me a couple of neat little programs for my PocketPC. Both are fairly cheap and are downloadable from the internet.
- Passwords Plus: A password database that synchronises with your desktop and PocketPC. And it’s password protected so you can keep prying eyes out. In addition to passwords, you can store all sorts of other information such as Frequent Flyer numbers, bank account numbers, as well as all those website registrations you have to keep track of. Available from http://www.dataviz.com; cost: $29.99 US. (Price rechecked Dec 2007 – still the same!)
- CityTime: A great companion for travellers or anyone needing to know the time in another city quickly. You can have up to 16 cities predefined, and can click on a world map to see the current time at many more locations. Also gives you the distance between cities, international telephone dialling codes, sunrise and sunset times, and ‘at the minute’ time zone shading to tell you whether it’s day or night in the city you need to contact. And daylight saving time in all locations is automatically updated on changeover. Available from http://www.codecity.net; cost $14.95 US (price rechecked Dec 2007 – still the same!)
