PocketPC client [Feb. 7th, 2006|11:23 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


I've developed a simple PocketPC/Windows Mobile LJ client. It's developed using the .Net CF 2.0, but doesn't require any other software. It posts using the flat client/server interface, is able to post moods, tags, and grab the list of journals one can post to (in theory it works, but I need to create a test group to test this on..). Any feedback (particularly the "good idea" or "whatever!" kind) is appreciated.

It's available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/pocketposter

I've ideas to make it able to post to other blog services, use/show pictures, grab the list of moods from the server (assuming that it's there), have a option to open the friends page, etc...

Looks good...

Working fine for me on a T-Mobile branded Windows Mobile 5 HTC Universal.

One quick question - is the code Windows Mobile 2005 Smartphone safe? I'm tempted to try it out on a HTC Faraday derivative. I've got other Windows Mobile 5 devices lying around (they're one of the things I get paid to write about), so let me know if you have any specific devices in mind for tests...

Re: Looks good...

Since it's written in .Net, it should be safe, and I'm not (yet) aware of any reason for it not to be. A phone test would be useful as my phone doesn't use WinCE. Non-phone PDAs should run it just fine.

Actually, after making a copy and converting it to a phone, I've found that while phone/PDA combos may run it, true phones won't as they don't have a touch screen.. If there's interest, I can probably make one just for phones.
