Windows phone 7 Developer Q&A: Lukas Lesko, Resco.net

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Developer" @ 07:00 AM

In part two of our ongoing series of Windows phone 7-focused developer articles, this is part two, with Lukas Lesco, Support Manager for resco.net. Resco has made some superb Windows Mobile applications over the years, so I was curious to get their take on what Windows phone 7 brings from a developer's perspective.

WPT: Looking at what Microsoft has announced at MIX10, what's your general impression of their development platform for the Windows phone 7?

Resco.net: On one hand we are looking forward to finding out more about the possibilities that this new platform brings. On the other hand, we are afraid of the restrictions that will be revealed. For example, the limited multi-tasking could bring more available resources, but on the other hand it can limit cooperation between applications. Also, the Marketplace could bring applications closer to users and bring better user feedback, but we are afraid that it will end up like the Apple Store; that is, filled with simple applications like games with no added value.

Windows phone 7 Developer Q&A: Alex Kac, WebIS

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Talk" @ 10:00 AM

We've had some intense discussions in our forums around the development story for Windows phone 7, but not being a developer myself, I don't have the insight required to understand how the radical changes Microsoft is implementing will impact the applications, and developers, that we're familiar with. This is part one of a short series of Q&A interviews I'm doing with some of the top Windows Mobile developers in this space. First up, we have Alex Kac the Founder/President of Web Information Solutions (WebIS).

WPT: Looking at what Microsoft has announced at MIX10, what's your general impression of their development platform for Windows phone 7?

WebIS: I'm pretty impressed by the development toolset and I think Microsoft has definitely made some good choices in their platform vision here. I'm really excited to see how far we can go with the tools and APIs. I understand that right now the APIs are pretty weak because you have to start somewhere and its really designed for consumer/feature phone type apps, but the foundation is really good so long term that's a good thing.

"First, we have the announcement that Pocket Informant 8.5 was released today with many improvements in Smartphone and Pocket PC editions. We have some major improvements in the Calendar, Tasks View, Missions, and Contacts and it is now available as a free upgrade to all Pocket Informant 8.x owners. Version 8.5 of Pocket Informant is a mature PIM on Windows Mobile and most of our major improvements have been focusing on ease of use, improving the basic usability in finger touch modes, stylus, and one-handed usage scenarios. We don't want just cram more features in. Some areas like Journal and Events Views received a lot of attention."

The folks at WebIS have released Pocket Informant 8.5 as a free upgrade to all Pocket Informant 8.x owners. If you're in that boat, head over to WebIS for the installer. If you're not, and you're interested in trying or buying, head over to our affiliate software store (Classic/Professional [Pocket PC]; Standard [Smartphone]). It's on sale for $16.95, down from the regular price of $29.95. But if you want to take advantage of the offer, you'll have to be quick as it ends on November 30.

FlexMail 4 Released

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Software" @ 09:00 AM

http://webis.net/products_info.php?p_id=mail

"FlexMail 4 is a full-featured award-winning (2004/2005/2006/2007) Email application that works with your device's built-in Messaging client to provide the best Exchange and IMAP connectivity available on Windows Mobile! Use FlexMail to improve your ActiveSync or SMS messaging with our multiple signature support, multiple folder searches, and cross-account email copies and moves. Use FlexMail to connect with the best IMAP feature-set on Windows Mobile with easy to configure yet powerful folder settings. Set each folder to download differently, notify of new messages, and get email using PUSH use IMAP IDLE."



Oops, it seems last week's FlexMail 4 press release never made it into our inbox, so we missed giving you the scoop. But as they say, better late than never.

There are a lot of new features to enjoy in this release, including a revision to IMAP support, MMS support, a redesign of the accounts and application settings, a redesign of the single-page view, new notification settings, and an Asian language encoding plug-in. There's more, of course, but we'd run out of space. If you own a previous version, you're eligible for a free or discounted upgrade, depending on when you purchased it. Otherwise, head over to our affiliate software store (Classic/Professional [Pocket PC] and Standard [Smartphone]) to try or buy.
