Gavin's Mobile Phone Programs
These mobile programs can either be viewed in the mobile emulator on this website,
or they can be downloaded to your mobile via cable, infrared or BlueTooth.
Note that you cannot download these mobile programs directly from this website to your
mobile phone as this web server does not have the correct MIME types to allow for this.
Alternatively you can download the JAD and JAR files for a mobile program to your computer,
upload them to MobStorage.com, and then use your mobile's
WAP capability to visit MobStorage.com and download the
files to your mobile. Note that MobStorage only allows one file to be uploaded at a time, and
most mobiles will work just fine if you only download the JAR file. A few mobiles require both
the JAD and JAR files.
The Mobile Emulators
The first mobile emulator used on this website is MicroEmulator,
an OpenSource J2ME (Java 2 Micro Edition) device emulator written in Java.
It is licenced under the GNU Lesser General Public Licence.
The second mobile emulator used on this website is MPowerPlayer.
MPowerPlayer is a more sophisticated emulator than
MicroEmulator, but it also takes much longer to startup.
*** NOTE: Mobile programs run much faster on the emulators than on a real phone ***
