Blackberry Development

Posted on Jul 21 2009 by Matthew Jakeman

Well I haven’t said much on here in a while because I’ve been busy with various projects. One of which has involved me writing my first application for Blackberry’s.

This has been an interesting experience so far and has taken quite a bit of time to get used to. Writing an application in Java having not touched it for about 5 years has been good and getting used to new API’s is always interesting.

I’m sure there will be many more blog posts to come now on little bits and pieces to do with Blackberry development, especially with the lacking support with regards to its UI. The standard widgets it provides are generally qutie poor and require a lot of customising to get an app even looking half decent. It is here that I envy iPhone devels as from what I can tell there is a very good standard library of widgets (standardised in appearance as well) available to them.

I will be posting code snippets shortly that try to overcome any little problems I have found along the way and hopefully these will be useful to some of you out there. Time will tell…
