Continuing on with the BlackBerry Developer webinars, Research In Motion has just announced another one for those out there looking to design, build and deploy super apps onto the BlackBerry platform. The last webinar was focused on UI designs and this one will fall along the same vein most certainly, given the definiton of super apps which make use of all the BlackBerry UI aspects. Here is a run down of what will be covered:

  • design apps that are stickier, more intuitive, more engaging and more valuable to users
  • maximize network efficiency and battery life with “always-on” apps that run in the background, quietly waiting for the right time to spring into action
  • add custom menu items and data to the Inbox, Address Book and Calendar so your apps are always one click away
  • leverage true push technology to deliver “just-in-time” data with audible notifications and customized messages 

The webinar will be held on Thursday, February 25, 2010 at 2:00PM EST with Mike Kirkup, Director, Developer Relations at Research In Motion doing the presentation. Registration is now open for all those interested and hopefully, like the other webinars RIM will make this available for rebroadcast.

Learn How To Make Your BlackBerry App A Super App

7 Comments

im just waiting to see the updates discussed in the last webinar, i mean they tore their UI layout to shreds to point out its flaws, even the FB app, yet not even an update for that!! what gives with saying `this is how you make it better` then not releasing it?

i know what they are trying to say, and showing people is cool, but wouldnt it be awesome if they practiced what they preached?

I have been waiting for a few months for the new essex on sprint...but now April?..which means this summer! No wonder sprint sales are down. I guess I will stay with att and get a 9700.

I am new here but what I get out of the super apps sounds like it may be tied to the new os and if thats the case I am wondering do u guys think that means that we might have to upgrade to new berrys i saw that somw demos are running on current b berrys but i still wonder that as it moves forward will current berrys be able to handle the new additions well or will we have to spring to get new ones that have stronger hardware to be able to fully use the future of berry software I am open to any ideas anyone has and would like to hear any feed back if anyone has any to my comment
