Discover how easy it is to create and customise a Series 40 web app from your website content and social media feeds, with Xpress Web App Builder 1.0.
This video guides you through choosing a template to layout your app, adding content from your website or social media accounts – such as Twitter and YouTube – then enhancing your app with ads or maps or features for the user to make a call or send an SMS message. Then, after finalising the app’s content, downloading the source code (to edit in Nokia Web Tools) getting a URL to preview it your Series 40 phone, and submitting it to Nokia Publish to start the process of publication on Nokia Store.
Movie Reviews is a Series 40 Web app which features latest movies, shows details (release date, cast, synopsis) and reviews for the selected movies, and also allows users to search for other movies from the Rotten Tomatoes movie database. This article illustrates how the app is constructed.
As of now, the Movie Reviews application uses several attributes provided by the Rotten Tomatoes API. The author has future plans to add more attributes and make the user interface richer. To track the progress of the project please check the project at http://projects.developer.nokia.com/MovieReviews.
Hola a todos! Hoy vamos a ver un tema del que se ha hablado mucho en twitter últimamente. Con la aparición de Windows Phone 8, nos encontramos ante la duda de hacer una versión de nuestra aplicación para el nuevo sistema, abandonar Windows Phone 7.X o no desarrollar para 8, pues las aplicaciones 7.X funcionan perfectamente en la nueva versión del sistema. Creo que ahora mismo, la respuesta es una mezcla entre ambas. Windows Phone 8 incorpora muchas mejoras que podemos…(read more)
As Nokia strengthens its offerings for Series 40 consumers and developers, we are offering two new and improved tools to help developers create Series 40 web apps. Nokia Xpress Web App Builder, which guides coders and non-coders through a simple process of creating rich Web apps in minutes, has graduated from public beta to final release. Nokia Web Tools 2.3 offers new features that help developers create, test, package, and deploy Series 40 apps, including preparing them for distribution on Nokia Store.
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.
You can download the slides from this session at: https://www.slideshare.net/nokia-developer/basic-ui-layouts-in-series-40-full-touch
This week we are featuring article about Map with directions for use in Windows Phone 8 applications. This article explains how to show route in map and get route directions with Windows Phone 8. The cool thing about this article is that the Map offers route directions in both textual and speech format.
Here are few screenshots of the code example in the article,
Read this article and add Maps with route directions in your Windows Phone applications.
Hola a todos! Hoy vengo con un post muy cortito para informaros sobre una nueva campaña que Microsoft España a lanzado: I APP YOU . Básicamente, aunque se explica mas a fondo en la página de la campaña, tenéis entre el 1 de febrero y el 15 de mayo para crear una app para Windows Phone o para Windows 8 y publicarla en su correspondiente Store. Entre todas las aplicaciones que se publiquen, se sortearán 2 XBOX 360 SEMANALES con lo que las posibilidades…(read more)
Well, it seems like just a few days ago that we released the Lumia 3DK, letting makers on the cutting edge experiment with our 3D models for the Nokia Lumia 820 back shell, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the result. The reaction has been fantastic, and we’re already seeing some interesting designs showing up on Thingiverse and IdeasProject.
To help those printing at home, the nice folks at Makerbot optimized the model for their Replicator 2 and posted it on Thingiverse, along with some great pictures of the printing process.
Whew, January is pretty much over already, and there haven’t been any updates here. So this means here’s a short cumulative update of what’s happened over the last few weeks:
Tetrepetete If you are not afraid of falling blocks, and don’t mind the lack of colors, give Tetrepetete a try. Not to be confused with a game of a totally different name, this game brings falling blocks of 4 to your N900 and N950/N9. While the full color version is still not available as such, the free greyscale version is up for grabs as .deb on the website. Including a cameo appearance by That Rabbit from That Rabbit Game for no good reason. Play or discuss. Or be productive. Or something.
SMS Backup GUI Instead of rolling my own solution from scratch, I found the wonderful MeegoSMSBackupRestore project by Tony Wang, which is a command-line tool for Harmattan devices to backup and restore SMS messages (as if that wasn’t clear from the application name..). It was missing a GUI, so I’ve added one. The announcement and download, as well as the Debian source package (.dsc, .tar.gz) are available from an Internet near you. Feel like Git? We have you covered as well.
apkenv updates If you haven’t been watching the apkenv Git repo closely (I know you haven’t), you might have missed the Pandora port by crowriot, which – while not being directly useful to Maemo/MeeGo users as such – also brought improvements to the Cut the Rope module, which somehow works now. To be discussed at talk.maemo.org, and patches (as always) welcome.
In other (totally unrelated) news, the thesis is done (yay!).
Windows Phone App Star is a Microsoft sponsored tournament-style challenge that will award 100s of prizes and give one developer the chance to see their app featured in a primetime TV commercial.
It’s Microsoft’s way of showcasing great Windows Phone apps from developers around the world. Whether you already have an app or want to create a new one for Windows Phone 8, this challenge will let consumers try yours and others, then vote for their favorites. It’s a fun, head-to-head, bracket-style competition that starts by rating all the entries and selecting the top 64. Then, these 64 are whittled down over several weeks of consumer voting. Think your app has what it takes?
How it works:
Register by March 5, 2013
Developers register and ensure apps are live in at least one market before deadline. Note: If you are not a Windows Phone Dev Center member, you can get a free Dev Center membership as part of the Nokia Premium Developer Program.
Determining the top 64
Apps get rated (50% rating/50% quality) to determine the top 64. All 64 winners receive a Lumia 920, app merchandising, and one year of Dev Center.
The Next App Star Grand Champion
Top 64 apps compete in a head-to-head tournament. Public voting determines who moves forward each round.
