MID4th v1.44 (J2ME Application)

MID4th is a Forth System for Java MIDP-2.0 phones.

Release notes:

An ANS Forth System written in Java2ME. It is adapted for Mobile devices from WebForth, available at the FIG archive. The Forth is reasonably standard with referance to the Dpans94 standard document, with a few changes to facilitae use on a mobile device. The main features are as follows.

The Forth suports persistant blocks of size 256 UTF-16 characters. There are 256 blocks in a block set. The current block set can be edited through the Java interface, or saved, or loaded. A Java based block set manager can be used to load or delete block sets.

The use of general URL files is supported. Any URL may be supplid as a filename, and opening the file is done read only. Writes to files are sandboxed, and so no changes are ever made to files.

There are PlatformSpecificWords to control many features of MID4th.

The display supports a background bitmap with 16 bit colour depth (ARGB each 4 bits), and an overlayed full colour font capacity. Alignment is to an 8*8 pixel grid monospacing of TheFont.

The playing of MIDI notes is supported, with note 69 being 440Hz. The notes play asynchronously, so as not to interfere with execution. There are facilities to synchronize code with the device master clock, and multimedia abilities depending on the phone model. Note that some phones suspend or end MIDlets when a media stream is opened, and this may be anoying.

SMS Salama v0.2.0 (J2ME Application)

SMS Salama is mobile phone Java application with which you can send and receive encrypted SMS.

Normally, SMS are transmitted as plain text, so any one with access to your operator’s network may be able to obtain the contents of your message. Some operators may even allow their customer service personnel to look into your messages.

With SMS Salama you are sure your message will only be seen by your intended recipient as long as the password used to encrypt it is a well kept secret between you two (and needless to say, it is strong enough).

Your SMS will be encrypted as it leaves your phone, ensuring that it can only be open by the password used to encrypt it when it reached its destination.
