Write Palm Apps in Pascal with PocketStudio

Pocket Technologies, Inc. has announced PocketStudio v1.0, which allows users to write Palm applications in a Delphi-like language based on Pascal. It offers a 32-bit compiler with a full-featured integrated development environment and allows complete access to Palm OS API for advanced developers. It is being unveiled this week at the Borland Developer's Conference. Pricing is not yet available.

Other features include:

  • Fully integrated editor with templates, database wizard, syntax highlighting, and other features.
  • Fully integrated debugger.
  • SnapIn technology for third-party developers to add features for code generation and code repository
  • PXLTM (PocketStudio Extended Library) collection of compiled source code components that plug directly into PocketStudioTM IDE
  • Integrated POSE support from the IDE for easy testing and debugging
"When we first began experimenting with application development for the Palm OS, we found the available tools either easy to use and slow, or very powerful but too complex, so at Pocket Technologies we set out to change that by creating a quicker, more productive development environment," says Pocket Technologies President Douglas Olson. "With PocketStudioT, we've combined the power equal to C/C++ with the ease-of-use of Delphi to make development for the PalmOS simpler and more powerful than most developers ever thought possible. Beta test feedback has been extremely positive, so we are looking forward to unveiling our product at the Borland Conference."

Looks like a great product. They aren't very clear on the details though. They should release a beta for the public.
