HotButton Plus makes it even easier to operate your Pocket PC Phone Edition device with one hand.

Tired of interrupting your work to return to the Today screen for battery, memory, network or phone status? HotButton Plus gives you access to this information no matter what you're doing, without losing your place!

Assign HotButton Plus to a hardware button - repeatedly pressing the button will cycle through your jog tasks.

Use your navigation pad to move back and forth between jog tasks (and select them!).

Assign applications to launch applications and built-in functionality such as system and network status, and phone numbers to dial.

You can even associate a sound with each jog task so you don't have to look at the screen.
