    1. I have to develop a web application for PDA. i am new to web application development for mobile devices how ever i have good experience of developing web applications for laptop using asp.net. can you please suggest me how to start this development.

    If you are already using ASP.net , you can continue with the same. Based on the http user agent you can redirect your pages. I suggest you to manage two pages one is for smart phones and another one is for non smart phones.

     

    2. Can we use mobile printer to print reports of this web application?

    No Idea.

     

    3. i need to allow user to down load an icon on his smart phone. clicking on this icon should open the web application in browser of smart phone (like facebook has option of downloading icon)

    Yes it is very much possible for smartphones but not on non smartphones.

  • It's a shortcut with URL in it. How you get it to the phone is another story.
