C++ API Reference

The Smartphone application programming interfaces (APIs) facilitate the process of writing great applications for Windows Mobile™-based devices using unmanaged C++.

The Smartphone programming model is divided into sets of interfaces, properties, methods, functions, data types, and data structures. Each set targets one specific area of functionality. For example, the Messaging API (MAPI) provides the elements for developing messaging applications, and the Remote API (RAPI) provides the elements for developing applications that allow desktop computers to host communications with mobile devices.
