The popular VITO ButtonMapper for Pocket PC is has been updated to work with Windows Mobile 5.0 devices. This application is specially designed to increase the standard button mapping capability on a Pocket PC.
According to the developers, there is no need to pull out a stylus every time you want to perform a routine action like checking inbox for new e-mails or opening a file from a text editor. This can be done by pressing one hardware button by using some of the handy ButtonMapper's features.
This is realized by assigning two actions for a single button: short press or press and hold. This brings the interaction with a Pocket PC to a higher level, allowing users to start about 8 different applications by pressing only 4 hardware buttons.

assigning different actions for one and the same button depending on which application is running at the moment,
starting all major system applets,
stylus taps emulation,
The software can specially benefit users when reading e-books, using text editors, checking inbox for new messages, turning on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi conections and other common tasks.
