    Hi all,

    I'm pretty good at asp.net and vb.net (web/winforms). Now, I'm interested in making an app for mobile devices such as Iphone or HTC mobile phones (preferably something along the lines of the labyrinth app, if you are familiar with that). 

    Is it possible to do this kind of thing using asp.net/vb.net technologies, or perhaps to easily convert from these languages to whatever it might be (Java, C++?) ? If I lower my ambition, is it at all possible to develop apps for the mobile market using (vb).net?

    You can create ASP.NET application that executes on your web server and work on almost any mobile phone that has access to Internet.

    Windows Forms are much harder Laughing, since you need virtual machine. You can create mobile windows .Net application if phone runs on Windows, but I don't think that is possible if client has Android, iOS, Symbian etc.
