    Overture for PocketPC

    I was wondering if Geniesoft has ever considered creating a version of Overture for the Microsoft Pocket PC platform similar to the SE version you include with GPO. I am amazed that there is not a pocket version of any of the major notation packages out. The pocket platform seems a perfect fit for entering notation with a pen interface and being able to carry a notation package around easily all the time. It would not even have to have playback abillities, just a way to create a file that is fully compatible with the desktop version and have a somewhat similar interface. I would be interested to know your thoughts on this.
    Thanks!

    I'm all for it.

    As Pocket PCs become more and more powerful, I imagine that we'll see a lot more apps designed for it.

    Re: Overture for PocketPC

    Actually this is a spectacular idea. I assume there is a built in GM device into all pocket PC platforms. Surely there is the generic emulated GM synth from Microsoft's other OS platforms? Not a bad idea at all. The notation package could be streamlined to basic notation or maybe left fully functional if the programs footprint is small enough. Cool idea.

    Any chance someone from Geniesoft could chime in on this topic ???
    I have tried some of the available "notation" programs for the pocket pc and palm, but they lack the intelligence of the bigger commercial products. They also have very primitive notation and graphics. I just want to be able to open/edit/save standard Overture files on my Windows PocketPC.

    I have sent the thread to Don at Overture, but he's kind of busy working on something spectacular I'm sure. Maybe he'll drop in and have something nice to say about this topic. Here's to hoping...

    Well I have looked into it a bit and it seems like a lot of work and probably not enough return for the investment. If I had a programmer that knew MFC code and PocketPC code very well, I would consider it. There are just too many other projects to work on.

    Thanks,
    Don
