Welcome to PocketMatrix. PocketMatrix is dedicated to providing the best online community for mobile device developers and enthusiests. What's new?

Welcome to We've recently archived much of our old content in order to make the relevant content more accessible and easier to use. Our goal is to become a hub for cross-platform mobile developers. We currently host forums for several popular development libraries such as GapiDraw and EDGELIB. We have much more in the pipeline to make PocketMatrix a helpful resource for developers.

If you have any mobile development questions, be sure to make use of our forums.

If you're a developer looking for user support forum hosting for your game or app, please contact us.

I've been on the look-out for something like this for many years. How cool would a portable android powered gaming system built into and HDMI stick be? Think NES / SNES emulator in your pocket with a wireless bluetooth controller. This isn't windows mobile related, but I thought others might also be interested: ... sole-ever/

Over the past few months, Dan East and I have been working on rethinking what PocketMatrix is about. As a result, we've done some spring cleaning:

  • Pruned much of the old content away that wasn't being updated

  • Upgraded the forums to phpBB3

  • Archived inactive forums

  • Redesigned the site

  • Refocused the direction of the site towards the activity that still occurs here (ie. mobile development focused instead of no focus)

There are some exciting launches coming up with WM7, BlackBerry 6, and iPhone 4 on the horizon, so I'm sure we'll see things pick up here again.

While the site has traditionally been Windows Mobile focused in the past, with the cross-platform libraries that we host, we're hoping to expand our platform focus to include all popular development platforms. Feel free to start posting in the other platform forums.

If you have any additional suggestions or feedback on where you'd like to see the direction of the site go, please respond! We'd love to you hear your feedback.

We still have a few more exciting features we're looking on adding to the site, so it's not stopping here.

Thanks for your patience over the past few years! We welcome old members and new as we shift our focus.

Elements Interactive Mobile B.V. releases version 3.986 of multi-platform middleware solution EDGELIB which includes various improvements and fixes.

Version 3.986 adds a couple of improvements and fixes, including a function to display a "default" character when a character is not available in the current character set, a bugfix in the XML class which addresses stability issues, a faster socket cleanup of improving shutdown on iPhone, better compatibility in the PNG writer code and a fix for a memory leak in PowerVR textures.

This version also removes a "terminate" symbol in the JPEG decode, which Apple recognized as a call to a private API. Also the "const correctness" of several functions has been improved.
