creating playbook app question(s)

I would like to create a simple html / javascript / css app for the playbook.


Is it possible to hand code app (old school) and test on playbook?
Will code need revision with each revised OS?
If program needs to be downloaded, what program and what is the process?

Thanks in advance. Only have playbook, no blackberry phone.

Re: creating playbook app question(s)

1) yes, you can test on PlayBook simulator as well

Check this site and/or WeBWorks forum



2) No, AFAIK there is backward compatibility, i.e if your app is running on OS1.0 it will run on OS2.0 too


3) Check the site in 1)

If you ask about how to distribute your app, it can be distributed only via BB App World
