Smartphone Applications

Sunday, April 23, 2006 Smartphone 2003 (a.k.a. Windows Mobile 2003 a.k.a. Windows CE 4.21) doesn't come with a version of notepad for short notes.

Problem now solved. I wrote a quick notepad application. Curiously, Smartphone 2003 doesn't have a standard control for navigating the file system. The guys at OpenNetCF have some great extensions, and although I can't find it right now, there is are File Dialogs to help you open and save documents.

I also decided to write a stopwatch application. The application has standard start/stop/reset/lap functions, but also adds logging to a file (no, you can't change it). It also has a unique feature that helps explain why I built it: It will time contractions (and display the last hour's average frequency and duration), show you the last 5 frequency and durations of the contractions, and tell you when it's time to go to the hospital. I expect it to be quite handy around the end of June...
