SMS games

The SMS technology combined with J2me can be used to create mulitplayer games. The players can use the cheap SMS facility offered by all mobile service providers to send and receive game data. Using the messaging API in J2me SMS messages can be captured before they reach inbox. Coded mesages can be used to exchange game information. At the same time Normal SMS messages can be detected and send to inbox. As an example a chess games can be played using a J2me program. The interface will be provided by j2me and moves are transmitted between players using SMS. For games on mobiles you need J2ME and its very simple too. Download the Java wireless toolkit from the JAVA site. The latest IDE Netbeans also has an extension thats available for download. So No configuration is needed. I wrote my first J2me program in 10 minutes using netbeans and J2me extension.
