Geekzone Friends for Windows Mobile

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 6-Oct-2007 19:29

A few months ago we launched the Geekzone Friends social network. It's a neat way of following your friends around Geekzone. Users have access to a page with links to the latest discussions friends got involved with, friends' activities, group messages, and personal messages.

You can also access a RSS feed with your own activities and private messages, and a second RSS feed with your friend's actions. Those are private feeds so only you know what your friends are doing around the site.

Now we have a Geekzone Friends for Windows Mobile, thanks to Kev Daly who developed this small Pocket PC client for us.

The program runs on Windows Mobile 5.0 (requires .Net Compact Framework 2.0) or Windows Mobile 6 (.Net Compact Framework is already part of the OS).

With this program on your Pocket PC you will be able to follow your Geekzone Friends around the site, reading messages they leave for you and checking what discussions they are replying to. And as we add new features, these will be automatically listed too.

If you want to create something similar for other platforms (Symbian, Palm OS), or a widget (Mac OS, Yahoo!, Google) then contact me so we can discuss how to access the platform.

If you are a Geekzone user, start making friends. Read all about this feature in our Geekzone Friends FAQ.
