RIM has today made their BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.1 for BlackBerry Smartphones available for download. This comes on the heals of the release for the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK not too long ago. The new SDK brings along some welcome updates for developers that will help to create feature-rich applications for the BlackBerry platform.
The new capabilities that WebWorks developers can now leverage include NTML & BASIC Authentication support, Camera API, Top Banner Indicator API, Enhanced Push APIs and improved rendering speeds for some applications. The APIs enable web developers to deeply integrate with the BlackBerry Smartphone OS and thereby build feature rich apps that offer more immersive and interactive end user experiences. Other benefits developers can derive from the new application functionality and APIs are better app monetization, diversified development approaches, support for standardized security and better integration with the widely popular BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) Social Platform.
