mPack – LoadsaUtils!

mPack   LoadsaUtils!







mPack helps make your Smartphone complete. Sure, the built-in software can do Calendar, Contacts, a little task tracking, and basic calculations, but what about all the other great things your Smartphone could do for you? What about taking quick notes? Timing your daily jog? Reading a classic book? Calculating a tip and splitting the check among all the people at the table? Figuring out how much a mortgage will cost each month while you’re visiting the property? And wouldn’t it be nice if you could get a little advice from an Inscrutable Oracle as often as you need it?




  • GREAT FUNCTIONALITY: 11 components covering a wide range of useful functionality and fun.




  • TINY & FAST: mPack takes up less than 100KB of storage – less than many individual Smartphone utilities from other companies. Components launch quickly and save your settings so that you can pick up right where you left off.



  • CLUTTER-FREE: mPack is a single application, so it won’t spam your Programs/Start menu with a slew of entries.



  • DESIGNED FOR SMARTPHONE: Many current Smartphone applications are simply ports of desktop PC or Pocket PC programs. mPack was designed from the very beginning to be a Smartphone product.



  • EASY INSTALLATION AND UPGRADES: With a single install, you get all of the mPack components. When a new version is released, a single download and install ensures that all components are updated to the latest versions. This means you have only one product to keep track of, rather than a dozen separate utilities all updated at different times!
