webOS 3.0 beta now available to developers

With the webOS 3.0 SDK available for almost two months, HP has now given developers access to a beta download of webOS 3.0 -- which powers the upcoming TouchPad and will likely ride along on HP desktops and laptops in the form of an emulator. Right now, the webOS 3.0 beta is only available to Early Access developers. The crew at PreCentral states that HP appears to have eased up on access...

RIM's BlackBerry Messenger Social Platform beta SDK now available for developers

RIM have announced that their BlackBerry Messenger-based social initiative, dubbed 'BBM Social Platform,' has made it into public beta. Promised at the end of September last year, RIM has created a BBM SDK, opening up its popular messaging service to developers for integration into other apps, pushing the social edge, allowing embedded chat, status updates, location sharing, and file transfers. ...

Immersion haptic feedback SDK for Android released

Haptic feedback, which all began with the mythical introduction of the Nintendo Rumble Pak and its use in Star Fox 64 and GoldenEye, is about to get a big boost on the Android platform thanks to the release of the Immersion SDK. Immersion Corporation, which has long provided haptic feedback technology for a variety of other applications, has only really dabbled in video games before. This...

Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK now available for all

Right now's a pretty exciting time for Android users, but even more so for tablet-lovers. Google's finally released Android 3.0 Honeycomb's SDK, which means that not only will we soon see a whole new round of slab-centric apps make their way to the Android Market, but also that the toolset used by Android developers and enthusiasts alike has been updated with a few goodies and improvements as...

New Google Analytics SDK for iOS supports custom variables

Google has recently released version 1.1 of its Analytics SDK for iOS. The main addition to this release is support for custom variables, which has been available in Analytics for Android since December of last year. Custom variables allow you to segment your users and they can provide very useful context. Examples include finding out what percentage of users prefer a paid app vs. an...

HP webOS 3.0 SDK released to developers

HP managed to keep webOS 3.0 pretty well off the radar until the Think Beyond event, when it was in full display on the company's new TouchPad tablet. Now that the new OS has been outed, it's time for HP to get developers involved. Developers who are members of the formerly-Palm Early Access channel can now download the webOS 3.0 SDK (codenamed 'Enyo'). You'll need to email pdc@palm.com to get...

Android 2.3.3 brings expanded NFC features

With the Gingerbread barely cooled on the Android 2.3 SDK, Google has now pushed another iteration to developers. In Android 2.3.3, it's all about expanding support for near-field communications -- that non-Packers NFC business we've been hearing so much about. In Android 2.3.3, Google has added a full-featured NFC read and write API, which will work with "almost any standard NFC tag in use...

BlackBerry PlayBook WebWorks SDK now available to developers

Before today, if you wanted to develop an app for RIM's upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet you were stuck with an Adobe Air SDK for the device. Now, however, RIM has released the WebWorks SDK -- first announced in September of 2010 -- which gives developers the ability to create apps using standard Web code like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. That should make it a relatively painless procedure to...

Android 2.3 Gingerbread SDK and the Nexus S announced by Google

Google, just moments ago, launched the next iteration of the Android and Nexus product lines: Gingerbread and the Nexus S. The Nexus S, with a 4" Contour Display, two cameras, 16GB of memory and Near Field Communication, is jaw-dropping. But let's not get distracted by shiny things; as software nerds, it is Android 2.3, Gingerbread, that really interests us. If you're feeling brave, dive right...

Android 2.3 Gingerbread rumored for November 11 release

The latest version of Google's Android mobile OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, could be right around the corner, according to reports circulating online today. Intomobile.com has pegged November 11th as Gingerbread's release date, based on information from "a trusted source." The source says that's when the Android 2.3 SDK will be out, not the day Gingerbread actually begins rolling out to the general...

Now's the time to make your first Firefox add-on with the Mozilla Add-ons Builder

Released with nary a muted fanfare, you'd be forgiven for having never seen or used the Mozilla Add-ons Builder. The Builder is a Web-based add-on SDK (and yes, you need to use Firefox to get the most out of it!) This new tool, which is obviously aimed at boosting both educational and commercial adoption of Firefox's new add-on architecture, is actually constructed from two technologies that...

SkypeKit SDK could lead to Skype calling on basically any device

What do you get when you release a Linux-based SDK for Skype? Skype on practically every mobile handset, and even some weird electronic devices, I hope! Instead of relying on Skype and Skype's APIs, developers and device manufacturers can use the new SkypeKit SDK to build their own Skype apps. The SDK goes far beyond the APIs that have been publicly available thus far, and looks a lot like...

Firefox Friday Five

After last week's positively snooze-worthy releases from Mozilla, this week has been much more exciting. Not only do we have tons of news from Mozilla Labs, but we also have new versions of Firefox to play around with AND some cool new add-ons! Let's start with the hot news that Lee broke earlier today: 1. Firefox 3.7 (or 4) will have a sexy new add-on manager It seems like there's a huge...

Steve Jobs comments on iPhone developer restrictions

With the big uproar over Apple's ban on non-native apps for the iPhone -- meaning every app has to be "originally written" in C, C++ or Objective C, and tools like Adobe's upcoming CS5 Flash-to-iPhone converter are probably banned -- developers have been seeking comment from Apple head honcho Steve Jobs. One dev, Greg Slepak, got a response from Jobs. Here's how it went down: Greg told Steve...

Apple puts a flailing, disenfranchised Adobe out of its misery and bans cross-compiled apps from iPhone OS devices

It seems that, in a glorious case of thinly-veiled and slightly-obfuscated smackdown, Apple's new iPhone OS 4 SDK Developer Agreement outlaws cross-compiled applications, such as those made with Adobe's new Packager for iPhone Flash-to-iPhone compiler. The new legalese reads: 3.3.1 - Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any...
