The following are written in Java for MIDP 1.0 or 2.0, and has deliberately
been kept as simple as possible, so it should run on ANY Java-enabled
phone or PDA.
RobTweet - a lightweight Twitter viewer. (MIDP 2.0)
If your phone has GPRS or WAP or anything similar (ie, if you can
browse web pages on your phone) you should be able to download these
applications directly to your phone by going to the following
When downloading, it will probably complain about issuer unknown ...
just say Accept, because I'm too cheap to pay for a java
Alternatively, you can download the code in a zip file, and use a USB
cable or IR link to install the application onto your phone or PDA The
exact details vary from widely model to model, so you'll have to read
the manufacturers instructions.
I'm attempting to include the source code... if you decided to fiddle with it, feel
free. It would be nice if I was included in the credits.
There is also this version for Palm Midp1.0 (requires JavaHQ,
downloadable from Palm with a bit of effort)
If you find this useful (or have any other pertinent comments) please let me know.

Java on Palm
For older models (OS3.51 and up) you can download midp4palm . This used to be on the Sun
website, but appears to have moved, so I've put a copy here. This is only a very basic
implementation, and it tends to fall over when you use it the first
time, but if you just reset and carry on, it seems good from there.
This requires your jar/jad files to be converted to a .prc, but the
converter is supplied . In any case, I've supplied a prc version of Robroller here.
Later models can use Websphere,
which can be downloaded here. This is free if you have the right
model, otherwise you can still use midp4palm. Websphere does not need a
prc version, just use the jad/jar files to install.
