Twitter Windows Mobile Application

8 05 2009

Today, I had a presentation at ITrain for the Windows Mobile Development Bootcamp. After discussing with Mike on what to demo, he suggested that I come out with a Twitter Windows Mobile App so that we can do simple checking on our Friends Timeline as well as allowing for Twitting to be done on the go.

So after another round of checking the Twitter API, I have managed to use both the “Friends Timeline API” to check out my friends and the “Status API” to update my status. Below are some shots from the Windows Mobile 6 emulator.

Since it was a presentation, I have also uploaded a PowerPoint slide on the basics on Windows Mobile development. You can find that here. It covers some basic Windows Mobile tech and some of the best practices of Windows Mobile development. For the source code on how to connect to the API, just get it right here.

Twitter Search

thats great that you are talking about the twitter api,a good example of searching with the twitter api is on twiogle.com because you can search on twitter and google at the same time.

Hello insoo,

My authentication is done by passing in a network credential. You can see the code in Form1.cs with this code:
request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(username, password);

You can replace the username and password parameters with a string of your username and password. I got mines from the login form.

Hope that helps!
