[17th October,2010 v1.1 (W)VGA/(W)QVGA ]
[4th September 2010 v1.0 (W)VGA only]

Dunno which to choose?
Try Paul's Pick.

It's designed like a WP7 app.
Require .NET CF 3.5
For WVGA/VGA/QVGA/WQVGA
what about HVGA?
I'm not able to test this.but I guess the (W)QVGA version should work on it.
Anyone use HVGA phone can try it and give me a feedback.many thanks

New Features:
1.[Require G-sensor]Shake your phone to move Paul.
thx emailoverhere's idea:Allow the user to tilt the phone left and right to persuade the octopus to move to another box instead of the original decision (like Tetris).
but it's not like Tetris.You have to shake the phone but not slowly tilt it.
Or Paul won't be able to choose unless your keep your phone on the flat surface.

2.Change the value of Paul's muscle(fat?).
Double click the screen.An Option dialog shows to let you change the value.
move the slider to change it.
Also,you can switch On/Off to enable/disable the 1st feature.

The more muscle Paul has,the more tightly Paul would hold the chosen box.
[the longer distance the box would move with Paul when you shake the phone.]

3.Fish move around.
There are 3 kinda fish:Betta Fish(windows 7 beta gallery),Clown Fish(iphone gallery),Fishbone(?)

4.show the entire text of your choices.
If the text is too long to show entirely on the box,press the box and..see this:


notice:It takes much more time to load the main page for the first time you click start to see Paul
"Paul's Pick.CAB" is the old 1.0 (W)VGA version.

[How to use]
When start,you'll see only 3 buttons.
Click 'Start' and you'll get 2 textboxes,which means can set 2 choices.
To add a choice[up to 6 choices],click the bottom 'Add' icon.
Also..
Click 'Minus' icon to delect the last choice.
Click 'Keyboard' icon to show/hide the screen keyboard.
Click '...' to show/hide the bottom menu.

After setting your choices(2 - 6 choices)and click start.
There will appear several boxes with your choices' text on them.
Paul will swim to a box that he (randomly) choose for you.
You can move(drag and drop) the boxes.Paul would always swim to the box he chose.

[Something about the tentacles]
Well,an octopus has 8 tentacles.but in this app,Paul shows only 6 tentacles.
It would also make the app work more smoothly.And too many tentacles would seem messy/orderless.
Maybe I can say,the two other tentacles are on the app's icon.

------------------

I got too many schoolwork to waste my time and so many new apps' ideas to make.
So..I'm not sure to make another new version of this app now..
我有太多功课来浪费时间,还有很多想实现的新程序想法.
所以现在不打算做本程序的新版本..
