Hi !

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum but hopefully someone can advise me....

I want to develop an application for a device running windows mobile or CE, hopefully someone can tell me which is better to develop for.
It doesnt need to connect to the internet and is basically a step by step guide which i might want to connect to a local database to retrieve info from. The most important thing is for it to look quite good.

Also what software should I be using to develop this?

- Was thinking about using macromedia director but it seems it wont run on CE/Mobile.
- Also Visual Studio seems to be difficult to make attractive applications on.
- Which brings me to windows presentation foundation and silverlight, neither of which I have used before, will they both work on CE/Mobile?

Finally can someone recommend a cheap touchscreen device to play around with when developing this? I was thinking one of those crappy chinese gps or media players running windows CE but I dont know.

Sorry about all the questions but i'm lost at this stage

thanks
