New! - Hacks for Pocket PC 2003 - Get 'em here first!

RegKing is
the ultimate registry hacking tool! RegKing 1.5

Registry "hacks" are little-known settings and tricks that you can use to improve the performance of your Pocket PC. ("Registry" refers to a database of system settings used by all versions of the Windows operating systems.) 

Hacks like these are not supported or documented in any way by Microsoft or the device manufacturers! Only the truly dedicated like Chris De Herrera ferret them out for the rest of us to enjoy!

For example, one of the most popular hacks that RegKing offers is the one that makes Pocket Internet Explorer pretend to be Internet Explorer 5.x. This makes it possible for your Pocket PC to view some of the more secure sites on the internet, such as banks or investment sites.

The wonderful thing about RegKing is that you don't have to know a single thing about the registry or the internal workings of the Pocket PC/Windows CE to enjoy the benefits of its registry hacks. 

As you can see from this screenshot on the right, applying a hack is as simple as selecting the benefit you want and clicking the "Apply" button. Of course, another wonderful thing about RegKing is that you can quickly and easily undo any changes you don't like by highlighting the hack, and clicking "Undo." It couldn't be simpler.

And, best of all, RegKing is free.  (Currently, only the Pocket PC, Pocket PC 2002 and Windows Mobile 2003 devices are supported. We do not have plans to add support for HPC/2000 class devices.)

However, we do ask that you register with us so that we can keep you appraised of new hacks, upgrades and new products as we have them available.

To download RegKing for Pocket PCs...

Or RegKing2002 for Pocket PC 2002 devices...

Or RegKing2003 for Pocket PC 2003 devices...
* NOTE: Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition is not supported.

Note: The PC downloads are in the format of CAB files; to install them, simply copy them to your device and run them (by tapping on them with your stylus) as you would any other program. The software will then be installed onto your device. Please do not unpack them on your PC first.
