Handy Today Item : DKToday

I bumped into Mitch Denny today as he was wandering the halls of Microsoft, We talked about lots of different stuff which included Mitch's journey into the dark world of managed APIs on the Windows Mobile 5.0 platform and his quest for Cell Broadcast information.

A while back, I had searched for a Today Plug-in which displayed the Cell Broadcast information. I mentioned this to Mitch and he mentioned that he had seen such a beast and that he would send me a link. Well, he didn't send me any links, so I thought I would do some renewed searching this evening,

So, I headed over to my trusty search page with the following key words - "cell broadcast"  "today screen" "pocket pc", and I was successful!!  I found an app called DKToday.

It is really really cool. It can take up to 3 lines on the Today screen and it shows the Carrier Name, the Cell Broadcast Information, a signal meter, last missed call info, phone usage for the day & month, and a count of sent SMS messages.

Here's a screenshot of my K-Jam's Today Screen with my new little friend DKToday

Can you tell what other items I have installed on my Today page?

    I have installed DKToday v1.8 on my O2 XDA Atom

    Entered in the 050 channel and I start getting the SMS like alerts.

    The DKToday Plugin only seems to pick up the First word in the location. E.g. If the location is “Neutral Bay” it will display


    And I still get the annoying PDA alerts.

    How did you stop the alerts coming up?

    How did you get it to show the full location name?

    Where is the API so I can make my own Cell Info plugin??
