OnTime Mobile for Windows Mobile

The Windows Mobile operating system from Microsoft runs on hundreds of different devices today, including many commercial and professional grade devices. OnTime Mobile is available as a free application that can be installed onto a Windows Mobile device either via a USB connection to a computer or directly from the OnTime web site.

OnTime Mobile for Windows Mobile offers a comprehensive set of features including barcode scanning, digital signature capture, and the ability to work offline. All essential information and functionality, including two way communication, is included. More sophisticated features, such as signature capture and GPS tracking, are included if the device supports them.
