Re: How can i create a best UI for Blackberry ?

Since this is in webworks category I'm assuming  you want to webworks. I recently picked up bbui.js and have used it to create a pretty native looking HTML5 app. I'm not limited to the framework as I combine it w/ angularjs to reap those benefits. The result is virtually indistinguishable web app from native that's functional and still powerful. There is a BB10theme for jquery mobile if you prefer that(lack of context menu was a dealbreaker for me) it's more flexible.

You can also just use plain jquery mobile and design the UI yourself but I find the BB10 look and feel to be the best.

You can use app frameworks like bbUI.js or jQuery Mobile which are good looking and give good performance. These UIs will save your time on developing a User Interface and give you more agility.
