The AppForge SDK allows developers to use Microsoft Visual C++ to create applications and ActiveX controls a variety of devices using a single code base.

Has anyone actually used this?

How well does it work? I'd like to see something a little faster than NSBasic and Satellite Forms.

Take a look at CASL, It is faster and cheaper then both NS Basic and Satellite Forms. Overall a very nice programming environment.

It is REALLY stupid to charge so much for software. They would be macking tons more money of the program if they charged like $100 for it, imean I develop for websites and the software for that is quite expensive with most peices of software in the $500 range but I have at least 5 of those, none of which i have paid a dime for because of the work people have put into cracking them. people put much less work into cracking apps costing <100 than they do the really expensive ones which just makes it smarter for the software companies to lower there prices

They offer a Personal Edition for only $20. It didn't make it into this article because it isn't cross platform. It is the Palm version only.

The application works very well. My only complaint is data synchronization.
