Widgets Supported?

Hello -

 

I haven't done any BB development before, but have a couple of Android apps I'd like to port to BB.  Does the Playbook Android runtime support widgets?  I get this error when I try to verify my apk with the Verifier:

 

[#1] minLaunchable-activity-count:impact=5:1:found=0 BlackBerry Verifying Problem

 

I assume because I don't have an activity that is launched from the launcher that it doesn't like my apk...

Re: Widgets Supported?

The PlayBook UI has no widgets (it looks nothing like an Android homescreen) so widgets aren't supported as there'd be nowhere to display them.

if you try the APK verifier you should get an error...because the verifier is waiting an activity (of course if you have a preferenceactivity the verifier should valid the apk oO)

Blackberry Tablet UI isn't designed to display widgets or other android desktop elements. Too bad for me I have some android apps with cool widgets :smileysad: meeh :smileysad:
Same with my live wallpapers... no way to port them :smileysad:
