Mobile Phone Application Programming by talk2hb1: 6:08am On Apr 19, 2011
Hello guys I think we should start a thread on mobile phone application development. We could develop application to target our local market just like the indians, they are not better of than us, they were only able to dominate the IT industry because they were able to take care of their home IT wise.
I have developed series of application for my p900 which is a symbian phone using python pys60, I can't say much cos I am still learning python. I dont know what you guys think about it? either java or python lets do something for our home country so that my mummy selling pomo can benefit from it.

Am currently taking Android and Blackberry,though i will be sincere esp Blackberry it's quite intimidating but its nice.
Quick Tips for Developing on the Blackberry Platform
1.First of all get the NairaDebit card to get Signed Keys fro your Application it's free but requires a Master Card i used GTBank Debit NairaMaster Card.
2.When you get your keys, you will need a Good IDE my recommendation is Eclipse IDE download it from there Site with the Blackberry Java Eclipse Plugin or you can use Blackberry's IDE though its a bit outdated but chances are you might keep both.as Eclipse has issues i had to use BB Ant Builder and BB IDE while Using Eclipse to debug.
3.Download Simulator ,a simulator is an emulator device with a specified version,u will need to download at least one Torch Screen,an under powered phone like curve 2 and one high end for 5.0 and any 6.0 device.
4.All Simulator comes with samples and applications so its all good learning from scratch.
5.Sign your Application with Blackberry via your keys using the Eclipse or Blackberry IDE

Blackberry Development is not hard but also not that easy as customizing interfaces requires you to make use of Graphics which is so primitive compared to Android and C# Mobile.

i hope to send the book to one person so they can share it with others,Knowledge is Key who knows we might create an app that will help nigeria in its Elections and stuff.
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by NumberOne2(m): 11:27pm On Apr 21, 2011
The key used for the signing, were they from blackberry itself or verisign?

I'm asking cos if you sign an app with your own certificate, chances are the BB device will reject the app cos it doesn't recognize the certificate.

Who issues the certificate?
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by pcguru1(m): 12:12am On Apr 22, 2011
Blackberry RIM
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by pcguru1(m): 12:53am On Apr 22, 2011
The Keys are just access to allow your device access the RIM API else you might be stuck with J2ME,this is quite different from the Blackberry App World they can reject your app based on certain reason.i don't intend to sell apps on the appworld

Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by NumberOne2(m): 1:35am On Apr 24, 2011
I didn't know BB rejected apps. I thought it was only Apple. Have you had any experience with the BB app world? I ask cos you said you aren't going to go through it. I intended pushing some apps through it.
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by pcguru1(m): 1:37pm On Apr 25, 2011
They don't reject apps just like that unless its a clear copy cat of another software
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by pcguru1(m): 7:38pm On Apr 25, 2011

Thanks bro we really appreciate this
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by NumberOne2(m): 1:14am On Apr 26, 2011
You don't have to sign your apps for it to run on a BB device. The signing is very important if your app wants to access certain sensitive API. E.g. IMEI number or if your app wants to access BES etc.
To test an app, you can simply upload it (jad and cod files) on a web server and configure the MIME type of the server and you're good to go.
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by pcguru1(m): 1:46am On Apr 26, 2011
True,majority might not need to sign apps.but without it I have no access to SQLite,which I want.
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by pcguru1(m): 12:52pm On Apr 26, 2011
wink i now understand, i was kinda fascinated by how much you knew that almost all classes in the RIM API didn't need key signing till i checked your website,nice one.you already have indepth with J2ME,nice one.
Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by NumberOne2(m): 11:42pm On Apr 26, 2011
Thanks man. I haven't really had time to add more apps to the list. Have a few in my head. Judging from the phone categories that have used my apps, I can say Nokia is by far the most popular in this country. I was surprised by the number of BB downloads. Not as strong as Nokia but quite impressive and encouraging. BB is expanding pretty fast here.

You guys should check out this SDK "MoSync"

www.mosync.com


MoSync makes it easy, fun and cost efficient to develop mobile application for all the major platforms. Using C++ and a set of powerful APIs, you can harness the full power of modern smartphone platforms while still supporting Java ME devices using a single codebase.

Re: Mobile Phone Application Programming by pcguru1(m): 9:26pm On Apr 29, 2011
You have to be specific on what platform you intend to focus on whether Java(Android,Blackberry),Objective C for Apple,Web Technologies(Flash,JavaScript,CSS,HTML(5)),.NET Microsoft Mobile or J2ME(General Mobile Apps).
