I have a blog but don't know if it acceptable to post the blog name here. I don't sell anything on it and I don't do ad's I just ramble on about things geeks need.
I would be interested in your blog.

TAUMULLER here no luck.. I think the problem is it wont get past the initializing screen. It never complete the initialization process.. so I never get the welcome screen. I can go to the register screen andit sees my network and updates the time and date. But because it is stuck on initialization it wont register the 4 corner shortcut. I am a complete loss now. have tried numerous resets.. different screens (4 corners).. discharge it all the way down and recharged it .. sleep mode , un sleep mode.. nothing works. Thought maybe update the software.. not sure. And what would I load on it .

I think it is defective.. I never have seen the left screen yet... woot special.. trying to contact them .. no reply. Any suggestions or help would be great. It is to bad because when you read the reviews it gets a good rating... I really like the size.. hope I can get a replacement one.. or get this working.

I would, too, UncleShooter, and welcome to the forum! You may not be able to post a link until you have made 10 (I think it is) posts on MobileRead. I will also be interested in what you think of the eDGe once you get to know it.

TAUMULLER, do you mean the e-ink (lefthand side) screen has never displayed anything? If so, I suspect you are right and that you got a defective unit. If they can, Woot will probably exchange it. That is what they have done in the past. I hope you can get a working PE. They are quite enjoyable little companions in my experience!

You're quite welcome, vinoth, and welcome to the forums, by the way.

I've only had my PE for a few days, so I'm learning here just like everyone else.

Start by reading the 'stickies' in this forum ... a good one on apps and their installation, etc. can be found here:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=132878

Then, if you have problems with a particular app or anything else concerning the device, please post a new thread and one of our really knowledgeable eDGe owners will be along to make suggestions.

I don't have any personal experience with skype or facebook apps...many here do, though. I've only installed the Amazon app store and a few other apps from links supplied here in the forum (browser, ereader software, etc.).

Enjoy your eDGe!!

Sorry, but unless you have an Android phone you won't be using the android market - it doesn't work on the PE or EE.

All is not lost however, there are sites such as http://www.freewarelovers.com/android and http://www.slideme.org/ as well as several others that have apps available.

The two apps you are looking for are on the freewarelovers site, all you have to do is download them to your PC then either copy them to a USB stick or use the USB cable to transfer them to your PE.

Hey to everyone from Nonna. I tried to register my new PE today (attached my android phone to it) but it will not get past the time zone. I selected my time zone (CST) but it states:error getting time from network. I then tried other time zones and it still gave me the same error. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much

hello pocket edge users,
is there any app available thro which i can make video calls like in skype. The skype that is available crash during sign in itself. Share me if there any video chat apps that can be downloadable.
pl send me list of other useful apps that can be downloaded, just bcos i dont have knowledge on what each app is doing i am forced to open each app and check the description .

right now, this is how i am installing app:
1) download the app to desktop. Move it to SD card.
2) open ES file explorer, goto root directory, click on othersdcard , open the app and install it from there.
is there any other way simpler than this?

Thank you Gunnerp245! Had to register and login to mention it -- but thanks! In particular (and for those who may still be having problems) - the VIDEO link that you posted, did the trick. I had been holding my thumbs concurrently on the four corners. Seeing the pen being used.. pressing each of the corners in succession (not at the same time)... got things working for me.

To anyone else still struggling with the registration process... look for the video post early on in this thread -- it makes things crystal clear.


cheers

First - go to http://www.freewarelovers.com/android and select 'android apps' under browse on the left of the page, you will get a long list of apps and clicking on any one will bring up a description of it.

As for your problems with the skype app you may find an older version on freewarelovers will work but you may find video calling is not working.

If you have a WiFi access point you can use the lan part of ES File Explorer to connect directly to your PC and install apps from there - it downloads and installs them.
