My First Pocket PC Application

Posted in: Phone, Tech

Woohoo! A real-life little program running on my phone with a label that toggles "Hello..." and "World!" on the press of a button.

Click the image to see what the emulator looks like:
Ppc App Hello Snip

Yes, I've even had that app running on my very own phone!

I must say, I'm super impressed with the development software, Visual Studio 2005 Beta. That app took me all of about 20minutes to produce, after a short time installing it. Admittedly, I have a little familiarity with C# and have played very briefly with Visual Studio Express (the free one) but even so.

Compared to the unbelievably fiddly process of beating the Symbian emulator into operation it was essentially an effortless point-n-click affair. Hit F6, choose to deploy on the emulator and up it pops, including an automatic installation of the latest .NET Compact Framework. Wild. Looking forward to more of this...
