    Smile Developing a location based application

    Hi everybody
    I'm a c# programmer. I'm intersting in developing a location based application for the Symbian OS (S60).
    I'm new to the Symbian OS and want ot learn it.
    I have a couple of questions:
    1) From what I have read so far, and correct me if I'm wrong, I can't develop to a Symbian OS (S60) with c# .net, or can I?
    2) Is there a way for me to write C++ code for the Symbian OS in VS 2005?
    3) Is there any reference for a location based service for Symbian OS - GPS kind of thng?


    Thanks in advance.

    Avi

    Re: Developing a location based application

    1: You can't use C# to write Symbian apps (unless AppForge is still around and available)

    2: Nope. Currently only CodeWarrior 3.1, Visual Studio 2003 or Carbide.c++ work as IDE's (I guess VC6 would work, too, but VS2005 won't).

    3: The LBS APIs are documented in the C++ S60 SDKs (for S60 3rd Edition and later, at least).

    Note: You can also use Java (J2ME) for developing apps for Symbian based devices, and to some extent also Python.

    For the first one you could try this one:

    (I have never tried it, only bumped into it).

    Python for S60 supports GPS - search the Python forum for more information.

    Hope this helps.
