Killer Mobile Interfaces with Python and Maemo?

Posted: July 15th, 2005 | Author: | Filed under: Linux, Mobile, Open Source, Python | 2 Comments »

Thanks to INdT‘s hard work, Python as well as PyGame are available for Maemo and the 770. This got me thinking about how cool it would be to use PyGame on Maemo to develop simple (but really good looking) apps with that “video game menu” feel to it. Killer apps like MythTV Freevo have proven that you can use PyGame to create killer interfaces.

I’m going to put this somewhere on my long list of things to do in my spare time, but it would rock if someone ran with this. What do you think?

    I think you mean freevo that uses pygame.

    Hey Brady, thanks for pointing that out. I knew that one of them used it but picked the wrong one.
