I try running Pocket Freemind on a Samsung Blackjack (SGH-i600, Windows Mobile 6, Smartphone without touchpad). It installs fine, but at startup I get "an unexpected error" and then after the click on "Details":
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks & best regards,
Pocket Freemind does not yet support Smartphones. Smartphone support is planned for a feature release but this work has not yet been started.
Let me know if you need someone to test a future smartphone release. I'd be happy to do that.
Peter or someone,
Has smartphone support been included in the Jan release? I get the same errors as above and I'm running samsung blackjack II with the newest freemind mobile installed. Thanks, John
Can I please second the request to add smartphone (with and without touchscreen) support for Pocket Freemind.
I am willing to test future releases of this feature.
I suggest consolidation around replacing the common dialogs in Pocket Freemind with tGetFile.dll replacement which does work on smartphones.
Available from: http://tillanosoft.com/ce/tgetfile.html
One problem with tGetFile.dll is that it uses C headers, rather then being C#. Maintainers (kedge, puddlehaven, rollone), will this destroy C# purity of the codebase (ie undesirable)? On quick inspection of the CVS codebase it does appear pure C#. Would a Smartphone Freemind fork be better?
tGetFile.dll can be accessed from the code using DLL imports:
public static extern bool tGetOpen3(int i1, int i2, int i3, IntPtr p1);
public static extern bool tGetSave3(int i1, int i2, int i3, IntPtr p1);
The code base only appears to use open and save from common dialogs.
Some of the UI appears to use Buttons, which is also problematic on smartphones… How hard is it to change these to menus?
A thought about licensing:
Pocket Freemind is licensed under GPL v2
tGetFile.dll is freeware closed source with the limitation that no redistribution is allowed. This might limit/complicate the way it is installed on smartphones…
tGetFile.dll is a free software. However, unlike the other Tillanosoft free software, redistribution of tGetFile.dll is not permitted. License condition is written in a distributed file. Read the condition before using the tGetFile.dll.

Same problem with my Motorola Moto Q 9c. Would love to beta test SmartPhone version for you. Keith
