Rich-media development for Palm OS

Posted on 27-Nov-2003 11:19 | Filed under: News


According to the latest PalmSource Developer Newsletter, PalmSource and Tribeworks have teamed up to kick-start a new category of Palm OS application development. iShell Mobile from Tribeworks enables content developers to rapidly create rich interactive multimedia (i.e., video, animation, VR, sound) applications for Palm OS.

The application lets developers build applications on the desktop (Windows and Mac OS X) that will run on Palm Powered devices. iShell Mobile works in conjunction with Kinoma Player, the most popular media player for the Palm OS.

iShell Mobile offers extensive media support, including all media formats supported by QuickTime, such as full screen Video, streaming Video, MP3 music, Flash, most image types and more. Text handling in iShell is done via standard HTML.

iShell Mobile includes:

  • Drag and drop user interface, no scripting required
  • Kinoma movies with audio, video, and animation
  • Extensive support for VR panoramas and objects
  • Time-based commands for building interactive video projects
  • Power management features
  • Text support: HTML and scrolling
  • Support for databases, variables, and conditionals
  • Virtual key support, allowing support for any Palm OS button
  • Integration with Palm OS Memo Pad and Datebook

    Current Palm OS developers can order iShell Mobile online directly from Tribeworks.
