Software developer since the birth of microprocessors (at the risk of sounding ancient.) Palm PDA fan since, well, since they invented the PDA… Now, a developer for mobile devices.
When I sold my software business in 2005, I was happy to be out of the PC – Microsoft Windows- C++ – Java – programming business. And, for the next few years, the only thing I programmed was the DVR.
Then the Palm Pre was announced and I became inspired to check into developing for the webOS mobile platform. The idea for my first application came from my wife, as explained here.
But, As we all know, the retards at HP decided to kill Palm. Since there will be no viable webOS or Touchpad now, I’m moving on. Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” appears to be on the right track for a mobile OS.
We’ve now got a route planner style app in the Windows Phone store. And, “Route Planner 8” for Windows 8 that runs on Win-RT tablets. Still mobile – still powerful.
If you have any suggestions to share with me, please leave a comment!
