Using Rosebud you can control devices via SMS (telematics applications) and/or use special SMS services offered by your mobile provider.
At the moment Rosebud is only available in German language. Also some features (e.g. GPS Calculator) will work for Europe only.
You can use the integrated GPS Calculator to translate GPS coordinates between three different formats.
If you are using TTN (TomTom Navigator) you can display the GPS coordinates as POI (Point Of Interest) in your
TomTom navigator software.
If you have no TTN you may use my little web service to display the POI (connection to the internet needed).
The availability and functionality of this web service depends on my web hoster and the underlying map service!
There exists also a Smartphone edition of Rosebud with the same featues as the Pocket PC editon.
This are just some examples what you can do with Rosebud. In Version 1.0 and 1.1 you have to edit the registry manually!
Your mobile provider may also offer you some interesting SMS services. You may also create your own profiles and Rosebud (.rb) files.
Way A: Rename the Rosebud registry key (under HKCU\Software\HfrSoft) to Rosebud.bak, de-install
Rosebud and install the new version. Then delete the created Rosebud key and rename Rosebud.bak
to Rosebud and you will have all your profile and settings again.
Way B: Backup HKCU\Software\HfrSoft\Rosebud (e.g. using PHM Registry editor) to a .reg file.
Install the new version and restore the registry settings using DeviceInfo
(or another utility that is able to import .reg files).
I added this samples in order to demonstrate what you can to with Rosebud. If you like to use Rosebud it
makes sense creating your own profiles.

||Parking in Austria (Vienna and seven other cities) via SMS using your mobile phone (aka 'cell phone' aka 'Handy' ;-))
||Parking in 2700 Wiener Neutstadt (this city goes it's own way and so there is a need for a separate Rosebud profile)
||Check your MasterCard account

In order to obtain a license key determine your device id using DeviceInfo
and send it to me and make the donation using the image below.
After receiving your donation I create a key with your device id and send it back to you. This procedure may take some days
because I do it in my spare time!
