The Symbian Platform Issue

The Symbian platform is by far the best platform to develop the mobile application and already there are tons of applications in the cyber world. The Nokia phones are basically based on the Symbian platform and the therefore requires a complete new approach for the development of the related applications. Already the Quickoffice has done a lot of development in this field and now finally Microsoft comes to the forefront to develop all the rest of the unfinished development.

The Development that can be done personally

Installing the SCOAB is easy. You download a Windows MSI file and install it by double-clicking on the file. After installation, there will be a number of new folders in your Program Files folder (in my case, all were under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Application Blocks for .Net\Offline). In the QuickStarts folder under the Offline folder, you will find a number of quick start project folders a couple of levels down. I first opened and tested the ConnectionManagementQuickStart project, and it compiled and worked immediately. There are also links to the various examples in the Program menu, under Microsoft Application Blocks for .NET program group.

The digital age has brought about such changes that have lead to the development of all the PC application on the mobile. In this revolution for development Microsoft too lends a helping hand in making the Office suite possible for the mobile devices.
