WiFiFoFum – The best WiFi scanner for Windows Mobile

First things first, I’ve got to agree that WiFiFoFum is the best from my experience with WiFi scanning apps for Windows Mobile. I tried MiniStumbler but it wouldn’t recognise the WiFi in the Windows smart phone (Palm Treo Pro) i’ve been been given to test. WiFiFoFum saves in all the formats I want, Google Earth (KML), text, Wi-scan, Tom Tom POI, MemoryMap & Netstumbler (ns1) formats, which means I can fit it in with the information I’ve collected very easily. Not to mention it can use the GPS built into the phone which is a big plus for me, no need to carry a notebook with GPS dongle.

You can grab a copy of WiFiFoFum from the Aspecto Software website.

QuickTime Alternative 2.90 MSI Installer

A new version of Quicktime Alternative is available, version 2.90. Here is the new MSI file for deployment. If you want the normal QuickTime Alternative package it can be found at Codec Guide. The previous version was 2.80.

MSI Installer Downloads:

Details on the build process can be found here at my first MSI installer for Real Alternative 1.75, the process for producing a QuickTime Alternative MSI installer is exactly the same as a Real Alternative MSI installer. As always you should actively virus scan these files if you don’t trust them. If you have any issues please post them in the comments.
