Basic4ppc Continues to Mature

Basic4ppc, at $39 the most affordable Windows Mobile development solution, has been updated to version 5.0 and now packs even more features, which include:

  • GPS
  • Serial
  • FTP
  • Networking
  • SQL (through SQLite3)
  • Encryption
  • HTTP
  • RAPI (allows communication between the desktop and the device)
  • FMOD (.mp3)
  • Pocket Outlook access (including the ability to send emails and SMS messages, etc.)

Version 5.0 improves application performance, adds a syntax verifier, autocomplete, and more.

Thankfully, despite its growing list of features, Basic4ppc remains IMHO the easiest to use development solution available for Windows Mobile today. If you're looking for a modestly priced, extremely capable development solution for Windows Mobile (or even your desktop!) I strongly encourage you to give Basic4ppc a shot. When my job calms down for a little while I hope to be able to bring you some more in-depth posts on Basic4ppc.

Hi Saj,

I don't know anyone off the top of my head. I suggest that you leave a post on the basic4ppc forum:

If no one there can help you, you might try leaving a similar post on the PPL forum (PPL is another Windows Mobile programming language):

Good luck!
