You can’t really make any worthwhile music app with this language, and it isn’t too useful for anything net related. So, what should I make with it?
I’ve been thinking about what else to put on my old Dell Axim. Emulation seems obvious, well to me it does anyway. I still have a Mac System 7 emulation app somewhere around the place, so I may try that.
The other thing I’d like to do is to populate it with a bunch of my own ‘mini’ apps made with Basic4ppc. That might take a bit longer though.
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.
I still have a number of old devices which are for the most part doing nothing whatsoever. So I started to wonder what I could do with them. Especially my Dell Axim x51. It’s a nice device, but I really don’t use it for music anymore, nor do I really use it for anything. It seems a shame to just sell it off as I’m sure I’d regret it. I’d like it to have a reasonable use for it.
So I’m going to have a nose around and see if there’s a way to get some more life out of it.
