Gurbani Anywhere – Bani on your Windows Mobile Phone

Gurbani Anywhere

So my buddy Mr. Sikhnet contacted me and pointed me to this intriguing app called Gurbani Anywhere. This App promises to “enable fast and efficient methods to search & display Gurbani, on a truly mobile platform.”

So I registered on the website and waited (not-so)patiently for a several hours to get my membership approved. (Update: they have listened to user requests and enabled email activation rather than manual administrator activation for the website – definetly much easier to get to the download and forums now!)Finally got the download link so let’s have a look!

The app is distributed as a .zip file download from the site containing a terse README and a standard CAB file. Any owner of a windows mobile phone will know what this is and immediately what to do with it. Note: The application and cab file come in at a hefty 66MB so you will definitely want to transfer and install this to a storage card rather than to your phones (or PDA’s) main memory.

So I transferred the cab file over to my phone and installed it to the card. Let’s take a first-look visual tour!

Overall I found this to be a very nifty app, and I’m sure once the developers do some more updates, this will quickly  become the defacto standard in Sikh mobile applications. Personally I’ve allready replaced Sikhi To The Max – Mobile on my phone with this, as it’s much better, more stable, has active developers, has more features, and is generally a better product. The various cool features, and addition of SDGS and Bhai Gurdas Vara make it especially compelling. I would strongly encourage everyone with a windows mobile device to run over to the website, register, download, and give some positive feedback to the developers as soon as you can!

Unlike my usual self, I will not mirror the installer here as the developers have asked that everyone please register on their site/forums

  5. Microsoft isn’t any stranger to having companions galore within the cellphone enterprise, however its lineup of manufacturers for the upcoming, surprisingly promising Windows Phone 7 launch is no much less impressive. After loads of rumoring, Microsoft has confirmed that Dell and HTC will probably be making Windows Cellphone 7 phones, along with ASUS, LG, and Samsung who had already been confirmed. All of these firms ought to have their stamp on hardware by the top of the year, with the launch of the OS nonetheless vaguely slated for the “holidays” We have now no doubt that each one five producers can construct some compelling, sexy hardware, however we’re significantly enthused to see Dell actually stepping into the game after the impressive Streak and that drool worthy leak a little while back. learn more at http://www.wp7forum.com followers group.

  6. It’s not flash compatible yet although It’ll work with Adobe flash when Adobe has made it compatible. Heck, they’re just now releasing Adobe flash for Android. The OS do multitask just like iOS. It saves the current state of the app then when you open it again, it’ll be where you left it.It doesn’t have ctrl+c. optimistically Copy and paste was attempted to be replaced by smart linking. I hope there will be adding full copy and paste in the next weeks.
