Handspring recently launched the Wireless Application Development center, which is a one-stop location to find the tools and resources for developing wireless applications for Treo communicators, VisorPhone and third party Springboard modules.
Available on the site is a selection of development resources for SMS, WAP or other wireless data and voice applications for the Palm OS.
Handspring also provides in-depth guidelines for designing web site content that is optimized for the Blazer web browser.
Currently available content:
- Handspring Treo Technical Specifications and Development Guide - How to Use the Call History Database - Data Communications on Handspring Devices - Blazer Design Guidelines - Handspring Treo compatible version of Palm OS Emulator (POSE) - Headers - Handspring Database Tools - SMS Library Header Files - SimpleSMS (sample code) - Sample Dialer (sample code) - VisorPhoneUpdate101.exe (285k) PC file—VisorPhone Update to enable 3rd party SMS apps - Handspring Treo Mechnical Information
Hopefully developers will embrace this information and develop alternative "Dialer" and SMS applications for the Treo.
