I'm really delighted to be able to tell you that the Content Publishing team have created three new Starter Kits for Windows Mobile devices. Starter Kits are ready-to-compile-and-run code samples, and are ideal for both learning how to write for Windows Mobile, and for using as a basis for your own applications.
In this set of releases, we have three C++ programs: two games (SkiTime, and Tic Tac Toe), and a Home Screen utility. The games demonstrate how to write an action game using DirectDraw, and how to use the new Mobile Ink APIs introduced with Windows Mobile 6. The Home screen plug-in demonstrates accessing low-level data such as the current Alarm Clock settings.
Remember, you'll need Visual Studio 2005 installed (Standard or above), the Windows Mobile 6 SDKs, and either an unlocked device, or the emulators running. Enjoy!
