NEW:Programming guide is available, and so is MultiTester , a debugging tool!


Multitasker is a breeze to write applications for,even complex ones. The built-in window manager seamlessly handles window display, input, and movment. The windows are also a "set-and-forget function"--you just set a few values in a couple of arrays and the window manager handles the rest. For example, this code is all that it takes to create a movable, clickable window!

winrequest(0)=1
wintxt1$(0)="Window text"
wintitle$(0)="Window"
winr(0)=20
wing(0)=200
winb(0)=200
winwidth(0)=130
winheight(0)=15
winx(0)=20
winy(0)=20
okaybutton(0)=1
cancelbutton(0)=1


Intelligent multithreading


Multitasker keeps track of which application is "active"(using the main display) and which ones are not. It then decides what parts of your program to run(e.g.when it is inactive it can load a file but not print text to the screen).

Force feedback--on almost any OS5 device


Multitasker incorporates proprietary modules that allow it to generate force-feedback vibration on an ordinary palm device--with no special vibration module or added hardware!.Plus, this functionality can be added to Multitasker-enhanced programs with only a single line of code!
