The Mobile Platform Development Webinar Series will continue with Apple iOS on Wednesday at 2 p.m. EST. Before the session, we wanted to share some highlights from the first two sessions presented by Research in Motion(RIM)/Blackberry and Windows Phone. The series was developed to help government agencies learn how to deliver government content–information, data and services–anytime, anywhere and on any device. One way to deliver content to citizens is via applications on mobile devices or native mobile apps.
Highlights of the RIM/Blackberry session included
- The basics for creating apps on the RIM/BlackBerry platform, specifically how to decide the proper open source tools/coding language for the RIM mobile application you want to develop.
- Tips and tricks for good app development on Blackberry like leveraging Blackberry GitHub Social Coding.
- How to get your agency app placed in Blackberry App World.
You can listen to the archived Blackberry session to hear everything covered!

- The basics for creating Windows Phone apps, specifically how to think about leveraging device functionality when developing in Microsoft Silverlight.
