Today it’s time to get a few more things sorted out for the StyleTap emulator on Windows Mobile. I think that one day this device might actually be quite useful if everything goes to plan.
You can’t really make any worthwhile music app with this language, and it isn’t too useful for anything net related. So, what should I make with it?
I’ve been thinking about what else to put on my old Dell Axim. Emulation seems obvious, well to me it does anyway. I still have a Mac System 7 emulation app somewhere around the place, so I may try that.
The other thing I’d like to do is to populate it with a bunch of my own ‘mini’ apps made with Basic4ppc. That might take a bit longer though.
The recent update to Pixilang made me try to find a decent text editor for my Axim Windows Mobile device, which wasn’t that easy. In fact, I found that there were only about 3 text editors that were even workable for my device. It made me realise that it isn’t easy to find software for aged software platforms, especially not terribly popular ones.
When I was looking for Einstein (the Newton emulator for Android) I realised that the Newton was very well supported, but that’s not true of everything in the older mobile world. So it got me thinking about setting up a site/store/repository for this stuff. Sounds like loads of work though! Maybe someone else will do it.
