If you've built Web sites using ASP.NET, you'll welcome the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT). MMIT extends the Visual Studio .NET IDE you already know by providing new controls for handheld devices letting you easily develop applications for wireless devices. This means you can write less code while adapting it to more devices. Not only does MMIT integrate with Visual Studio .NET, it extends ASP.NET as well. This article gives you the background you need to write, test, and deploy a site with MMIT and make all your code able to target specific devices for a custom fit.

Last week Android updated their software (changed the display from 480px to 800px) so all the mobile tweaks we made for our apps are no longer work on Droid Phones.
I would need to identify the User Agent(e.g. Android) and switch style sheets depending. (We don't want to redirect to another page, just switch style sheets).
Anybody know any lightweight solution ?
Thanks in Advance.
(we were using 480px pixels to identify if the user was coming from iPhone or Android and switched stylesheets accordingly. If I changed it to 800px some desktop monitors and the iPad would see the mobile version and not the desktop version. Not good.)
I have a mobile web application published at www.tofilmfest.ca/tiffwidget. It has one form where you input criteria for what you're looking fork, and another one that displays the results. The results form displays two backbuttons for returning to the input page and they work fine.
The problem is when you return to the input page using the HARDWARE backbutton on your mobile device. When you do this, the input page reappears, but is no longer functional -- you have to refresh it to get it working again. The functional software backbuttons use redirection to return to the input page. Can anybody think of a workaround that will enable the input page to remain responsive irregardless of how you return to it?
I've created a Public Folder Calendar on my Exchange Server that our Office Manager uses to inform all our partners and staff (small medical practice) of vacations, group meetings, etc.
I'd like to make this calendar available to mobile devices (1 Windows Mobile, 1 Blackberry, 3 iPhones). I know that individual user Exchange Calendars can sync, but I'm told Microsoft isn't making any effort to make this happen for Public Folder calendars
because they're being deemphasized and will disappear in either the next or subsequent version of Exchange. There's a third party product that claims to do this (Outlook AddIn). Since the Public Folder Calendars are being de-emphasized in favor of the Sharepoint
calendar, one would think that Activesync would be able to work with the SharePoint group calendar, but apparently that's not the case. Is my best bet still the Add to Outlook product from diditbetter.com?
