New Web Development Enhancements - Smartphone Development
It seems as if the smartphone revolution is upon us. Gone are the days where cell phones were simply used to make calls. Now, they can plan your life, allow you to stay in touch with loved ones, ensure that you’re always connected to all things work-related (which may or may not be a good thing), and give us directions to the nearest Thai restaurant, among other tasks. The leader of the smartphone pack can officially be declared the BlackBerry, which is well known for its addictive quality.
The BlackBerry plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio (version 1.2) comes equipped with a wide array of new features. Here is a look at some of the most up-to-date enhancements:
Support is available for debugging web projects with BlackBerry smartphone simulators
Seamless integration into Locals and Watch Windows
Visibility into the content of XMLHttpRequest requests and response data
BlackBerry® Bold™ smartphone simulator now included as the default simulator for ASP.NET projects
Ability to install v1.2 alongside v1.1 to debug and simulate BlackBerry® MDS Runtime projects
As you can see, installing the BlackBerry simulator and the Microsoft Visual Studio plug-in is a piece of cake. And now that you better understand what BlackBerry has to offer, you can truly take advantage of its features to create powerful, engaging smartphone apps.
