FLASH CONTENT: FlashPack, Simplifying Content Distribution
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 05:15 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

HandSmart just released their Macromedia Flash standalone executable maker for Pocket PC called FlashPackâ„¢. FlashPackâ„¢ is a Windows based application which is used to create Flash content for Pocket PCs. What is worth noting is that it is the first to provide flash artists, game developers and content providers with the means to distribute and manage Flash based content without requiring any programming skills.

Moreover, FlashPackâ„¢ creates an .exe file from flash .swf files. This enables users to run your content directly as stand alone application and does not require running it within Pocket Internet Explorer. The end result is that the entire flash and runtime exists in a single file which proves to be a boon for both flash developers and the target users as distribution and installation of the file can be done by simply dragging the file to the device without any prior installation.

Tom Grek works on a little tool which allows you to move your SMS messages from your Smartphone to Outlook on your Desktop PC:


SMS2Mail is a simple program and it seems weird that, whilst everyone has been busy writing Pacman clones etc nobody's actually sorted out this major omission from Smartphone. Essentially the program is run from the phone whereupon it converts all SMS in your Inbox to E-Mails in your outbox (on the phone). Don't worry; the SMS look the same as emails, it's just that Microsoft thought they'd give us two types of message, one of which won't sync properly.

Spb Software House just released an innovative way of deploying applications wirelessly. Called the Spb AirSetup, this deployment solution is aimed at developers who want to be able to distribute their application directly into a Pocket PC.
