Neil Enns - What do developers need to think about when building applications for the SmartPhone?

Download

Right click “Save as…”

The newest SmartPhones come with the .NET Compact Framework, so we wondered just how different it'd be developing applications for the SmartPhone vs. a desktop PC.

Plus Neil says you can try building apps without even buying a new cell phone, and gives some tips that you'll need to think about.

Anyone try building a SmartPhone application yet? We'd love to see yours.

    I have a few ideas that I am starting to design for the smart phone devices.  I have to admit that in the beginning I was not very impressed with the smart phones but I have seen that I have had to change my thinking and view of the world.  The days of thinking in a window or a browser are gone and for the better.  I will post ideas as they get flushed out but I am trying to help the user with driving and weather.  Hope they work out.

    Neil --  What are the web resources you mentioned in the interview?  A blog for smart phones?  anything else you would have a person check out to get 100% up to speed on the small devices?  Thanks

    Our developer site is at www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/developer/. You can get all the SDKs and emulators and whatnot from there.

    You can also try the MSDN Mobility center at http://msdn.microsoft.com/mobility/. There are a ton of whitepapers and samples and such there.

    Our team blog is at http://blogs.msdn.com/windowsmobile/

    Happy developing!

    Neil
