Fantasy Football app for BlackBerry Playbook get demoed

November 18th, 2010 at 5:36 PM

If you have been waiting to see what a 3rd party developer has in store for RIM’s upcoming Playbook tablet launch, this is the first significant video demo we have found — and it looks great. From Universal Mind, they write on their blog about the development experience:

It was entirely built using Adobe Flash Builder and the BlackBerry SDK. The workflow allowed us to deploy a working tablet application in days with full touch and gesture interactions that you would expect in a tablet device.

The framework SDK is integrated into Flash Builder which made for a very familiar dev environment. Compiling the application and deploying it to the PlayBook Simulator is quick and easy with multiple ways to see your application in a working environment. Without a actual device in hand we relied on the Simulator to test all the interactions, so it was a key piece of the workflow.

Kinetic scrolling with rubber-banding effect is built into the SDK, they note, which makes it easy on developers to concentrate on adding greater functionality and features, as opposed to focusing on little transitional/design elements like they have to in the past with RIM’s previous OS development. All in all, it looks good. A little iPad-ish, but we’d take that any day over regular BlackBerry apps. Question for RIM… are 3rd party QNX apps called super, super apps? Video is after the breakage!
