    What do I need to get started doing Treo application software development?

    I have some ideas for some simple programs I'd like to have but can't find anywhere.

    I would guess google might be a good start...

    type in "windows mobile developers" for some sites.

    Far as Palm OS, I'd stay away from it right now... unless you wanted to get an early jump on Nova.

    I'm sure others will post winmob dev sites... there was one posted in the 800w forum recently.... if I see it I'll post it here.

    I have a Treo 700P so I do want to write a few PalmOS programs. Just really simple stuff.

    I'd like to be able to press a button on the screen and log a date/time stamp to a file of when the button was pressed.

    Another app I'd like to have is a very simple app that records a GPS waypoint with date and time stamp at the press of a button. I have a bluetooth GPS receiver that works with the 700p.

    Automatically geotagging photos would be another nice app but may be more complicated than what I can do at this point.

    I saw a camera yesterday that auto geo tag photos. I did think that was cool.

    Maybe if you go to palm's website they will have some developer info. I'm sure that is starting to wind down due to Nova....

    Then again, heck, with all the centros being sold, you never know. There are still a lot of palm OS devices out there.

    Nice to see a positive palm thread....

    Take care.

    Even a stop at BN or any local book store might be good:

    Google is great for looking up stuff....

    I forgot to mention I don't want to write programs to sell. I just want to make a few simple things to use myself or share with others who may have the same interest.

    I know I can go on google or the bookstore and read books on the subject.

    I was hoping to hear from someone on here that says I use X and it can do Y which is very simple and does what I need to produce a .prc that I can load on my palm device and run.

    You need to download the Palm SDK from the site mentioned above. First you need to create and account and log in.

    Does anyone have any experience with any compilers or interpreters that run right on the Treo POS?


    For my apps that might be a better way to go than starting with downloading the full SDK from Palm.

    Maybe PocketStudio?

    $70 for a "personal" version. How's your Pascal these days? ;-)

    Progress? Well, at least I can get color traffic maps now...

    Wow! What an unlikely combination. I haven't done anything with Pascal since my grad school days at Northwestern in the 70's. I have never heard of anyone using it since then.

    I have used PocketStudio and it is really quite good if you are a Pascal person. Has a good "Delphi like" WYSIWYG GUI, though it is does not support OO.

    This one sounds interesting, although I have not used it CASL
