Given the quality design of many of the Windows Mobile 6.5 phones (predominantly those made by HTC) this should come as no surprise.

Pocket RAR provides advanced support for RAR archives with solid archiving, multi volume archive support, six different compression levels, Unicode in file names and password protection using 128 bit AES encryption.
Opera Mobile :Windows 6.5 Apps
The HTC HD2 comes with both Internet Explorer mobile and the Opera 9 web-browsers as standard. Both are fine browsers, but for the best browser experience on WinMo 6.5, why not download and install the feature rich and free Opera Mobile 10 browser?
Featuring a much slicker and faster interface than IE or Opera 9, with a “Speed-Dial” home page, I’ve found Opera 10 simply a great browser to use. With multiple (and easily navigable) tabs for web-browsing, and a feature to compress downloads (useful if browsing whilst outside your standard data tariff, say, whilst roaming abroad) it feels clean and snappy in use.
Evernote is a cross-platform application that allows you to easily capture information in any environment using any platform or mobile device and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere. Some of its cool features include creating notes containing text and audio, it finds printed and handwritten text within images, you can clip web content directly into the Evernote app and it also captures screenshots.
Adobe® Reader® is the global standard for reliably viewing, printing, and commenting on PDF documents. It’s the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia.
AirScanner Anti Virus
Airscanner is probably the best free antivirus for your Windows mobile device and with the increased wireless connectivity of PDAs and Smartphones comes an increased threat from virus attacks. Its better being safe than sorry.
• Automatic online updates of virus signatures and scanning engine.
• A very advanced, granular scheduler allows you to design your own test plans.
• Easy to use, yet powerful enough to satisfy the most knowledge-hungry power users and network admins.
• Intercept memory resident viruses with an advanced task manager/process killer.
• Detect spyware, Trojans and other malware with expert tools.
CleanRAM :Windows 6.5 Apps
Another vital utility for Windows Mobile 6.5 is CleanRAM, a great way to tidy up unused applications that may not have shut down completely.
CleanRAM effectively does the same to wasted system RAM as a soft reset, and can be used to free up space on your Windows phone, to three increasingly intensive levels. Its one of the best Windows 6.5 Apps.
Windows Mobile introduced the concept of “tethering” long before the Apple iPhone, and the platform repeated this with Mobile Wi-Fi Router, a brilliant app that turns your Windows Mobile 6.5 device into a mobile hotspot.
As long as you have a good data connection plan with your mobile network, this app can be easily used to provide your netbook or PC with a wireless internet connection!
MoTweets :Windows 6.5 Apps
There are probably more Twitter apps available for Windows Mobile 6.5 than for any other mobile platform, and almost all of them are excellent applications.
However MoTweets gets into this list due to its excellent user interface which includes all of the standard Twitter functions (Tweeting, direct messaging, retweeting) as well as URL shortening, adding photos, Follow and Unfollow, and even updating your location with GPS.
Available for £2.69 (around $4) from the Windows Phone Marketplace, if you’re a regular Tweeter you shouldn’t miss this app.
