  • BlackBerry 10 SDKs Will Evolve From Beta To Gold



    Research In Motion is doing the best it can to help out developers on the way to BlackBerry 10. We've seen this in the BB10 Jam Tour and in the tools they are putting out. Today, the BlackBerry Developers Blog featured a post by Tim Neil, in which he gave everyone a little insight as to what is on its way for developers.

    He starts off by explaining how RIM will be providing developers with various beta BlackBerry 10 SDKs, which will ultimately lead up to the "Gold" BlackBerry 10 SDK sometime down the line. You can tell RIM is trying to get it about as perfect as possible before releasing it to the developers, so as to leave no excuse for someone to not develop for BlackBerry 10.

    He was kind enough to share some of the APIs that will be made available to developers in the coming betas:
    I won’t list all of the APIs that are coming, but I’ll list the hot topics where I usually get inquiries:

    • BBM™
    • PIM (Contacts, Calendar, Tasks, Notes)
    • Messages/Email
    • NFC
    • Share/Invoke Framework
      • Adding your menu item to an existing app
      • Invoking and being invoked by another app

    • String pattern registry
    • Geocoding & reverse geocoding
    • Bluetooth®
    I personally cannot wait till these APIs are out there. The deep integration that will come from this will be outstanding and will ultimately benefit us, the end users, the most.
