Need to convert your old Windows CE Application to an Android Environment?
Windows CE is no longer supported. What should you do with your old custom legacy Windows CE app?
The logical transition is to convert your Windows CE application to run on Android. But should you develop a native Android app? NO. Don’t make the same mistake of locking in your application to only run on a specific operating system or a specific set of rugged mobile devices. TPI has extensive software development experience to assist you with this transition.
Why was Windows CE such a stable platform to run legacy applications on mobile devices? Simple – Windows CE operating system never changed. So the same application that was written over 10 years ago continued to operate day in and day out on a variety of devices. What about today’s environment with Android? Good luck with that. Google has made extensive modifications to Android since it purchased the operating system in 2005. Many of these version upgrades required rewriting portions of native Android applications to continue to operate. No longer are you working in a “one size fits all” operating environment. Now you may need specific code that will only work with specific versions of Android. Ouch!
