Compatibility, also problem with MySpace app

Will an app designed for Windows Mobile 6.1, but also specified for a type of phone (HTC Touch, Samsung BlackJack II, etc.) only work on that particular phone, or on any phone running WinMo 6.1?

My second question is: I have a problem with the MySpace app where if I comment on a person's profile, before I am able to type the comment, the comment form disappears, the app goes unresponsive for about 15 seconds, then tells me it sent the comment successfully. It's basically sending a blank comment before I can type anything!

I've currently uninstalled the app and am relying on MySpace's mobile site, but was wondering if anyone had run into this problem, or if it was a fluke and I should just reinstall and hope for the best.

Thank you.

Ok the difference in the devices is this :

Windows Mobile Professional devices have a touch screen.

Windows Mobile Standard devices no touch screen.

When buying software for your TP2 just make sure the software is compatible with WMPro devices. Some software works with both so if it does not specify it probably works with both.

I have a Samsung SCH-i220 with Windows Mobile Standard 6.1. So, as long as the app is compatible with WinMo standard 6.1, it can run on my device, even if it's listed as being for a particular device, like the BlackJack II?

The BlackJack II seems to be identical to the Code, so probably yes.

Sorry I thought you had a TP2 I would say yes it wont hurt to try if it does not work just remove it.

OK. After all, what's the worst that could happen?

Thanks.

If the worst happens you could have to hard reset your device. A hard reset will restore your device back to all factory settings meaning all the information like Contacts, Calendar items, programs you have loaded will be wiped from the device. If you have all your PIM data backed up and copies of the programs you have loaded you will just need to sync the data and re install the programs.
