Download Mobile Apps Straight to Your Phone

You’ll notice there’s a new “mobile” category! I’ve begun tinkering with Mobile Processing. If you have a Java enabled phone (or other mobile device) running J2ME, you have two options for getting any of these sketches onto your phone.

1) Download the .zip archive from the blog post, expand it, then copy the .jad and .jar files to your phone using a USB or Bluetooth connection.

2) Use your phone’s internet browser to go to and then select a sketch’s link to download it directly to your phone.

BE WARNED: this stuff is very experimental. I am running them on a Nokia 6555 but I’m not testing for compatibility on other systems. In theory it should work on a variety of devices, but if it doesn’t work for you, I probably won’t know why. And if it breaks your phone, it certainly isn’t my fault. There are instructions for testing your phone.

Thanks. And let me know what you think!
