This webinar is a guide to the new features in Nokia Xpress Web App Builder 1.0. Swapnil Johnson, from Nokia’s Xpress Browser product-management team, shows you the new, integrated click-to-publish support for users with Nokia Store publisher accounts; a more intuitive interface, where changes are reflected in the simulator as you update your code; and more content modules for drag-and-drop additions to your Series 40 web apps.
Featured Project for this week is Movie Reviews by avnee.nathani. We selected this project because it has all the elements of a useful and “joinable” project – a clear summary description, source code availability, explanation in wiki etc.
The app presents the user with a tabbed and structured user interface allowing to see the listing of latest movie releases along with the details like its cast, synopsis, reviews etc. The user also has the flexibility to search for any other movie/reviews, fetched using the Rotten Tomatoes API, the details of which are clearly explained in the Wiki section of the project.
The author also has written a article on Nokia Developer Wiki which explains the very fine details about the implementation & its use cases.
Lastly, we would like thank the project author for sharing as how simply a web app can created with an attractive & clear UI.
In this webinar Swapnil Johnson, from Nokia’s Xpress Browser product-management team, puts the spotlight on the Nokia Web Tools 2.3 update. He demonstrations the Nokia Web App Designer, which provides visual assistance, drag-and-drop UI components, and source code highlights when creating Series 40 web apps. He also shows you how to use the new content-based templates to jump-start development of popular application patterns such as shopping and video browsing.
At the first Series 40 UI clinic, held on 29 January 2013, Jan Krebber answered developers’ questions about UI design and UX on full-touch Series 40 phones. To start the session, however, Jan provided a presentation based around questions he had been asked about full-touch UI layouts in Series 40.
In this presentation Jan covers three main topics: first impressions, forms, and the UX resources offering on Nokia Developer.

Series 40 Web Apps UI Visualisation Examples is a Nokia Developer example which demonstrates the basic use of the S40 Web Apps HTML “UI Components”. The example code snippets are meant for both designers and developers: designers get an impression of how the components actually look on the device and developers learn how to use the Web Apps UI components.
If you’ve noticed a theme in our examples you’re right. Last month we featured a similar project showing off Java ME UI components. These sorts of Nokia Developer examples make it easier for designers and developers to start programming more easily, with less iteration.
This code example article explains how to add in-app advertising with Inneractive to Series 40 Web Apps.
In-app Advertising is a very popular monetization strategy where the application is distributed for free and revenue for the developer is generated by clicks in ads positioned inside the app. The ads are loaded from the Internet every time the application is used. Web Apps are a natural candidate for In-App Advertising because they are always connected and cannot be executed offline.
The article also contains a sample application with a build-able source code illustrating the use of WebBrowser control. So if you plan to use WebBrowser control in your WP7 applications, do check out this article and let us know if it’s helpful!
NewsFlow for Series40 is Google Reader client, developed with Series40 Web Tools by one of our Nokia Dev Champs eetomla (Tommi Laukkanen). The app reads news feed and has a simple user interface created using jQuery Mobile, which includes:
To have a better understanding of the application author has created a Wiki which explains the application features and code in more details.
MinesFinderS40 is a Series40 Web Apps game by lorion84. It’s a clone of Windows based Minesweeper game. The main screen consists of a grid. Some cells of this grid have mines planted in them. The goal of the game is to discover all the mines in the shortest amount of time without clicking on the hidden mines. At the end the grid should be cleared with only the mined cells remaining.
