Hi, folks ... I know it's been a while since I posted, but I think you're going to LOVE this one. On a personal note, I've made a move from the Windows Mobile team over to the Windows Stationary team (i.e., the desktop). But that doesn't mean I don't still love writing apps for Windows Mobile!
And here's something to prove it. Check this out:
I cominbed the following technlogies:
1. Windows Moble Smartphone (in my case, the AudioVox SMT 5600)
With all that, and a hearty dose of my own .NETCF and a little ASP.NET magic on the backend, it wasn't too hard to create an app that allows me to take a picture and hit "Send" ...
Two clicks, and a few seconds later, anyone can look at the website and see the picture I took, and where I was when I took it (within a pretty wide range, as I'm on the AT&T network, which does location at the cell-tower level, so you know I'm generally in Seattle, but you can't find me exactly).
Mobile location scenarios really get me excited ... anyone else have some ideas for apps that take advantage of the fact that when you move, so does your device? Let's hear 'em in the comments!
(Adding a couple of comments. If you just go to http://www.blogthevote.net/mapquake/map.aspx you can see the original application I wrote and then "morphed" into this. It uses RSS feeds and MapPoint to map out earthquake data. Also, I do know that the photos are cutting off at the bottom, but since I just wrote this last night, I haven't had a chance to debug -- hopefully I'll get a chance to solve that problem soon!)
