So what exactly does that MSN Direct download bring to your Windows Mobile device? In this under-seven-minute video I give you a quick walkthrough using my Dash; a Windows Mobile 6 device. There’s a few opportunities for improvement in the application, but if you want basic News, Weather and Stocks on your Today screen (and you have enough room for them), this could be useful. There are plenty of third party applications that can provide the same info, if not more, but not all of them are free. Then again, I’m not sure I’d call this implementation “free” exactly; no it doesn’t cost you anything, but there’s a fair share of ads. They’re not obtrusive, but they’re there as you’ll see in the video.
