Mix 08 Day 3 – Take your content mobile with Expression & Zumobi

ZumobiZumobi is a new free mobile widget application that’s from a company spawned from Microsoft Research. They did the whole presentation in Expression and didn’t use Powerpoint :-)

  • The Zumobi application was for organizing content in a easy to find, attractive format mostly in 4 x 4 grids.
  • Zumboi uses XML & JS for building the widgets
  • The SDK and Emulator are free to download and use along with Runtime
  • They don’t use a Windows Emulator but a Zumboi runtime which runs in the PC to give a full experience
  • The differences between platforms (J2ME, Windows Mobile, Palm) on Scripting, Display, etc are all abstracted by Zumobi Runtime
