I am not sure how many of you have ever needed to design an
application for use on a tablet PC (an actual tablet, not a laptop with
a tablet type screen), but I thought I would recount some of my trials
and tribulations that I haveexperienced in the course of working on my current project.
front, Tablet PC development would not appear to be all that different
from normal development for a standard PC, but you have to keep in mind
that when there is no keyboard or mouse attached, all prior knowledge
gets thrown out the window.
I plan to break down this knowledge dumb into multiple parts and will be posting different parts about 1 per week.
- GUI Layout/Presentation
- To Ink or Not to Ink
- Data Security
I hope that in the end that I will have communicated my experiences
well enough that if you should ever develop an application for a tablet
PC you will not have the same learning curve that I did.
Till Next time....
