In a nutshell, the change-log would read: (1) Windows Mobile 6.5 support, (2) Fullscreen text viewing and (3) Word count.
Windows Mobile 6.5 Compatibility
With a support for a wide range of devices running almost any flavour of Windows Mobile, it was imminent that Notepad Mobile would support Windows Mobile 6.5 as well.
WM 6.5 users can also run Notepad Mobile in the same way other WM users do. Simply run the executable from File Explorer and start working.
The screenshots on the product page have been updated to that of Windows Mobile 6.5 and it definitely looks sexy!
Fullscreen Text Viewing
This, in my opinion, is the most useful feature of this release. It gives more editable area to users by going fullscreen.
You can go fullscreen and zoom in at the same time for extremely easy text input. To activate fullscreen, simply launch the menu with right soft-key and select Fullscreen.
This nifty little feature would let you know of how many words are present in your text and would also let you know of the total number of characters present.
Is it worth upgrading to Notepad Mobile 1.6?
Though the first feature will not appeal to any unless more devices support Windows Mobile 6.5 ((In fact, I had a hard time to find an official link for Windows Mobile 6.5)), nevertheless, fullscreen support and word-count would help many in their daily usage of this software.
