about mobilewares.net Pty Ltd
mobilewares is a company based in
Melbourne, Australia - with a passion for
creation of consumer applications for new platforms/devices
- and providing freelance development services to 3rd party
mobilewares was started in 2001 by Niall
Ginsbourg (a software developer/solution architect with 15+
yrs experience). The company's initial focus was
mobile phone applications and on-site consultancy (hence the
name 'mobilewares') - and released a number of j2me
applications + games which were distributed worldwide in
over 5 languages. During this time - mobilewares also
delivered a number of projects to leading Australian mobile
phone content aggregators / providers - such as developing
one of the most popular launch sites on Telstra's i-mode
In late 2005 mobilewares turned it's sites onto Media
Center (and other PVR), .NETv3, and Vista related products
and services. By this time mobilewares had already dabbled
in the world of HTPC/PVR - having already released a widely
used 10 foot EPG addin "Now Showing" for Showshifter, a
developer API for PVR's "PVRX" - as well as contributing to
the popular open source PVR project "DVB-Webscheduler".
Since then - mobilewares has made a major
splash in the world of Vista Media Center + WPF
application development - having launched a full
range of products ("Big Screen"
product range) while Vista was
still in beta - and have several
'world firsts' to boot (such as
being the first company to deploy a MCPL DLL Addin, a MCML
Web Application and Vista XBAP Applications).
The Big Screen product range has
been hugely popular - sporting a user base in the tens of
thousands - and one of the products "Big Screen
Headlines" was also voted 'Best Vista Media
Center Application" iin the 'Media Center
Show Awards 2006'. Company owner Niall Ginsbourg
was also awarded a "Microsoft MVP 2007"

products - mobilewares continues to provide
