Projects

I like to share code where ever possible and to collaborate with other developers on projects. The following page is designed to list some of the projects I am involved with that may be of interest to other Windows Mobile developers. If you would like to help out on one of these projects I would love to hear from you.

Simeon Tatham’s Portable Puzzle Collection

I am slowly improving the port of Simeon Tatham’s Portable Puzzle Collection to the Windows Mobile (Pocket PC and Smartphone) platforms.

This project is hosted on the Google Code website. You can download the latest source code and add bugs and feature requests via the website at http://code.google.com/p/portablepuzzlecollection-wm.

You can download the latest installer or learn a little about the development process.

ChrisTec Managed Today Screen Item Framework

The ChrisTec Managed Today Screen Item Framework enables .NET Compact Framework (i.e. C# or VB.NET) developers the ability to create custom items that are displayed on the Windows Mobile Pocket PC today screen.

This project is hosted on the Microsoft CodePlex website. You can download the latest source code and add bugs and feature requests via the website at http://www.codeplex.com/ManagedTodayScreen.

You can download the latest release or watch a screencast that demonstrates how to utilise the framework.
