Ascender have just released the Ascender Personality Kit for both Pocket PC and Smartphone. It combines ringtones, themes, background images and fonts into categorized sets which you can easily choose from and apply.
I’ve tried this out on a Samsung i320 and it worked beautifully on the wide-screen Smartphone. There’s over 50 pre-defined sets of “personalities”, with animals, holidays, place or sports to choose from plus many more. Each set has it’s own matching ringtone and fonts plus backdrop and colour scheme. It’s a simple and effective way to instantly personalize your handset. The only issue I had with it is that I needed to install .NET Framework 2.0 and unfortunately there’s no way of adding your own backdrops or ringtones to existing sets and templates – I’d love to see this feature added.
Ascender Personality Kit is available for all Windows Mobile devices and is priced at $19.99 which is only about £10 thanks to the excellent exchange rate! :)
