CodeJoker, who have been instrumental in the creation of a number of homebrew apps, has just released another small utility reminiscent of Windows Mobile.

Beau Allison is continuing his work, and his next project is a connection manager of sorts, combining WIFI and Bluetooth shortcuts. All the software of course needs developer unlocked devices.
