BlackBerry 10 UI Guidelines

[ Edited ]

Hi Everyone,

 

If you're taking advantage of the BlackBerry 10 SDK for Adobe AIR 3.0 beta make sure you check out the UI guidelines to give you're app a native BlackBerry 10 feel.

 

The UI guidelines are being followed for all of the new BlackBerry 10 SDK for Adobe AIR components that will be released in the upcoming 3.0 SDK. There will be updates made to the 3.0 SDK beta over the coming months and we'll make sure to announce them when they become available. 

 

From the getting started section in the UI guidelines:

 

"The design incorporates a framework that allows you to create fluid workflows for your applications, making your routines sing. The operating system allows you to take advantage of an easy to use sharing framework that has been designed for performance, keeping in mind that people want a device that they can rely on."

 

Cheers,
Dustin

Re: BlackBerry 10 UI Guidelines

Dustin,

 

Is there a plan to allow Adobe AIR 3.0 SDK beta developed apps to run on the Playbook. I would really like to use my Playbook to test my app instead of the simulator.

 

thanks

Re: BlackBerry 10 UI Guidelines

Unfortunetly not at this time. I believe some updates are coming to the simulator at some point though to make it a bit easier to develop to. 

 

BB10 for PlayBook will come after the launch of the new BB10 devices. No date given.

 

You can always attend BBJam and get a Dev Alpha :smileywink:

Re: BlackBerry 10 UI Guidelines

To my understanding, not every developer will receive a Dev Alpha. For developers who are registered as App World Vendors, as well as who have not received a Dev Alpha at Orlando would be eligible for a Dev Alpha on any location at the BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour correct?

Re: BlackBerry 10 UI Guidelines

From the website - http://www.blackberryjamworldtour.com/

 

A limited number of BlackBerry® 10 Dev Alpha devices will be available to qualified developers. During the event registration process, apply to receive a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device, available only to developers attending BlackBerry 10 Jam!

 

The BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device is a prototype device created for the purpose of testing BlackBerry 10 applications during development. The device is not a BlackBerry 10 smartphone for end users, nor does it run the final BlackBerry 10 software. It's been created just for developers to help them prepare for the launch of the upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform.

 

Qualified developers will be determined by Research In Motion® (RIM®) using applicant information from the registration system. If you have already received a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device at a previous BlackBerry developer event or from RIM, you are not eligible for this offer.

 

Registrants who apply will be notified within 24 hours before the event if they are qualified to receive a device at BlackBerry 10 Jam. Qualified developers must collect their device in person at the World Tour event that they are registered for. Photo identification must be provided at the time of collection. Registrants cannot receive more than one (1) BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device during the BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour.

 

The BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device comes with one USB charger and one North American wall outlet charger.

This seems weird. Why are you basing your qualified developers based on who lives in what City?

 

I can't travel to Toronto or Montreal, yet I have 3 of the Top 10 Photo Editing applications on Playbook.

 

I would love a test device so I can have adequate time to prepare my software for your new OS, and make sure your users have the best Photo Editors they can get.

 

Have you guys considered seeding the top 1000 developers on Playbook with devices to at least ensure that the cream of the crop from Playbook will be there on BB10 on day 1?

 

This seems way too arbitrary. I think you should be targeting the proven developers who are driving sales right now on your existing QNX OS (Playbook), at least then you're gauranteed to see some tangible results.
