The recent update to Pixilang made me try to find a decent text editor for my Axim Windows Mobile device, which wasn’t that easy. In fact, I found that there were only about 3 text editors that were even workable for my device. It made me realise that it isn’t easy to find software for aged software platforms, especially not terribly popular ones.
When I was looking for Einstein (the Newton emulator for Android) I realised that the Newton was very well supported, but that’s not true of everything in the older mobile world. So it got me thinking about setting up a site/store/repository for this stuff. Sounds like loads of work though! Maybe someone else will do it.
Bizarre as it might seem I don’t think I’ve bought an app for ages now. It does feel very odd, but I haven’t bought one all year I think. I haven’t even downloaded very many free iOS apps either. On Android it is slightly different, but I think my purchases may total just 2 or 3 so far. Even so, it’s nothing at the moment. Not compared to what my app consumption was.
