C# developer developing BB10 App

I would like to develop a BB10 application for Playbook and BB10 device which involves storage(DB) with fast access and camera utilization to take pictures.


Basic requirements

  • User input with text and dropdowns
  • Grid based display with some graph
  • Store and retrieve the data
  • Capture the photo and associate with the record
  • Location data utilization to know the location


I would like to understand what could be best dev option to develop this application. I am familiar with C#, HTML and JavaScript. Have exposure to java as well.


Can it be done with WebWorks HTML5 or Java Android Runtime. Any sample application could speed up my learning skills.

You should be able to do this with any language that you choose. I would however recomend that you avoid using the Android Java runtime...

Cascades / Native C++ shouldnt be too hard to learn since you seem like you know a few languages already. So id say why not. HTML5 is alwasy a fallback option since its so easy Smiley Happy but not as quick

This could be done in AIR. AIR API is "similar" to C#/Java. Basic functionality could be done in about a week. Making it "pretty": another 1+ weeks.
