I'm not certain if a PDA version of their software is freely available... I didn't have any luck when I looked around their site for a minute or two
It's freely available at http://www.vlijapan.com/downloads/bi...5/PKG203JP.exe
(CAB form and PC version are also available here: http://www.vlijapan.com/downloads/bin_20030505/
). The main download screen can be found at http://www.vlijapan.com/downloads/;
you don't need to use it (and struggle with Japanese stuff), however, because the files/the directory is freely accessible.
Install it; after running it, just press the second button at the first, Japanese language screen (it has 'IP' on it). The two textfields may be login info for some kind of dir server; they can be left empty.
This app is just GREAT! It works great over Wi-Fi and even Bluetooth, even over ad-hoc (P2P) connections. That is, if you want to chat over BT, just pair two PDA's and use the 'Network Access' profile to start a PAN; it'll also give IP's to all PDA's after a while and gPhone will, then, be able to work.
Fortunately, apart from the first page and the chat 'Send' button, the app is all in English.
Incidentally, I've also tested version 1.60, the last full English version I was able to find in my archives. It doesn't support chat/file transfer.
, as with https://www.gphoneonline.com/
) and the old page, http://www.gtony.com
, no longer exist. This is why I needed to Babelfish the Japanese pages I was able to find, play around with the user registration page and the non-translated buttons with the old method of 'trial and error' until I found the above-mentioned URL's.
Feel free to ask further questions - this app is a gem! I love it! At last, a working (unlike, for example, ProximityMail
or Bluetooth Chat
) BT/Wi-Fi chatter app! (see http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/foru...ic.php?t=36203
for more info on those apps.)
