Developing applications for iPhone, BlackBerry and J2ME in ASP.Net

I would like to introduce you a new mobile application framework


for developing native, form-oriented applications. The aim of the solution is to screen the programmer completely out from the mobile platform itself, and transfer the entire application logic to the central application server level.

Developers with experience with one of the supported Web technologies (ASP.Net, Java, and PHP) may start working with iPFaces virtually immediately.

For more information, see the project web site at where you can also find simple tutorial how to use GPS module.

iPFaces is distributed under GNU/GPL for community usage, client applications are distributed as freeware.



ASP.Net Server Packages

Latest version: 1.2
Released: Sept 09, 2010

Package contains everything you need to start creating iPFaces applications: server libraries, examples and documentation. The MSI installer installs all the packages on your computer and also integrates the iPFaces platform with your Visual Studio.

Server packages are distributed as an open source under BSD license.


Hello world example:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"
CodeBehind="HelloWorld.aspx.cs" Inherits="HelloWorld._Default" %>

<%@ Register Assembly="iPFaces.NET"
Namespace="Org.IPFaces.Net.Controls" TagPrefix="ipf" %>

<ipf:Form ID="form1" runat="server">
    <ipf:Screen ID="screen1" runat="server" Title="iPFaces Form">
        <ipf:Label ID="label1" runat="server"/>

This file represents the visual representation of the application.

File HelloWorld.aspx.cs will look like:

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using Org.IPFaces.Net.Controls;
using Org.IPFaces.Net.Pages;

namespace HelloWorld
    public partial class _Default : Org.IPFaces.Net.Pages.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            label1.Text="Hello World";

Hello World application on the iPhone device
