It seems Microsoft has updated its Facebook app in Marketplace to 1.1 (formerly 184.108.40.206p). The official Facebook page for Windows Mobile does not list this latest version, but Brendo has provided it on xda developers for those who can’t use Marketplace. It is not clear what changes have been made because everything seems to look the same. Users claim it is more stable, so it could be worth the upgrade.
Twolf has created a simple sinewave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 12×9 step sequencer. Just click on different bubbles to make sound patterns that repeat over and over. It can be fun to use when you’re bored. It was created to emulate ToneMatrix, which can be played on your computer.
How it works:
- Just click or drag the finger to use.
- Left/right/up/down to clear the screen.
- Enter to exit.
Note: ToneBox needs Flash7 to play.
