SMath Studio – the closest thing to Mathcad on your Windows Mobile Phone

July 31st, 2009 | Categories: Linux, math software, mathcad, pocket pc | Tags:

It won’t be long before I give up Windows Mobile for good in favour of the HTC Hero and the Android operating system but before I do I thought I would take one last look at what’s out there in terms of mathematical software for the Windows Mobile platform.  I last looked at this back in early 2008 but one or two things have changed since then.

SMath running on Windows Mobile

SMath studio is a very nice free maths application that is being developed by Andrey Ivashov for Windows and Linux (via Mono) desktops  as well as Windows Mobile handhelds.  It installed perfectly on my HTC TyTn II and offers an experience very similar to a simplified version of PTC’s Mathcad and can even handle Mathcad’s .xmcd file format in some cases.  One cool feature to consider is that you can develop calculations on the desktop version (screen shot below) and then carry them around, edit and run them on your Windows Mobile phone (screenshot above).

SMath running on Linux

Andrey has recently released version 0.82 of the software and there are some active forums over at his website in both English and Russian where you can discuss it.  This software is well worth watching in my opinion.  Although I won’t be able to follow the Windows Mobile versions after next week, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on SMath for Linux and Windows and hope to bring a more detailed review to you at some point in the future.

    You should definitely try and use SMath Studio. This “one-man” project is really awesome. I can state, with no doubt, that every Mathcad user will be rather surprised.
