The ArcPad Today Powertoy is a small, configurable Today Screen plug-in for Pocket PCs.

The powertoy allows you to have quick access to useful tools and monitor vital device status information from the Today screen of your Pocket PC.

  • Run ArcPad! - You can also specify ArcPad to start with different configuration files
  • Battery monitor - Displays how much power you have left

  • Program Memory Monitor - Displays how much free memory your device has for programs to run in

  • Storage Memory Monitor - Displays how much free space is available on your device and your storage card

  • Program Launcher - Configure the powertoy to run other applications installed on your device

Download it Today :-)

Wait there's more ...

- Send script code to ArcPad.
- Send application events to ArcPad.

All this and it's Free!!

    This looks good. I have an ArcPad applet that I would like users to be able to run only when needed (as it adds an additional toolbar in ArcPad).

    Is there a convenient way to use ArcPad Today to allow ArcPad to run with/without specified applets? I wondered about using FileCopy to copy valid and dummy applet files into the \Applet folder, but perhaps there is a neater solution.

    Hi i have been trying to use the Power Toy to copy a dependant apm file.

    However this doesn't seem to be working.

    Is this because the FileCopy method in PowerToy will only work with certain files?

    Has there been an update to the ArcPad Today Powertoy?
    I've been using it on a WM6.1 Juniper Archer, but whenever I suspend & unsespend the device the screen (while still functioning) goes fully white.
    After I uninstall ArcPad Today normal functionality is resumed.
