auf deutsch / german version

latest version download V0.14 (44kB)
perhaps those 2 files are needed, too: .jad, manifest

This little application is meant to provide oftenly used informations and calculations on a mobile phone. It comprises a single XML-file containing the navigation and content. Only optional images (nothing but png will be accepted by mobile phones) have to be supplied separately. The XML-file and the optional images are directly contained in the JAR-file and may be edited, added or removed at any time without recompiling the application.

 ...more info about editing 

The content may be simple texts, optional with one small image or forms to perform calculations. The formulas used in calculations are not limited to the 4 standard arithmetics of mobile phones; they even allow simple program steps.

try it out

On mpowerplayer.com there are 2 ways to try J2ME-Software without a mobilephone. Both of them work on any platform that has a working Java installation and they are free. Just for being sure: I have nothing to do with this emulating software and thereby do not take any responsibility...

  1. JavaWebStart: start it
    Clicking the link starts JavaWebStart and will download the emulator from mpowerplay.com (1,8MB). Afterwards you are asked to grant full access because the J2ME-emulator will run locally.
  2. local emulator: the Mpowerplayer SDK comprises besides other software a standalone-J2ME-emulator. After downloading the software (appr. 6,5 MB) put the Brian-files (Brian.jar and Brian.jad) into its program directory and run the emulator: java -jar player.jar Brian.jad

Caution
Please keep in mind that I do not take any responsibility for this software - use it freely but also totally at own risk!
If you want to say "thank you for this application", you might use this special link to Thomann. It would be very kind to do that before ordering something there, of course. :-)
