Porting your app

  • Chris King

Abstract

It’s easy to make assumptions when you start programming for BlackBerry. You probably have a single device that you’re looking at, and any time you have questions about how BlackBerry devices handle something, you can simply check to see what the device does. The picture grows far more complicated after you have written your app and start making it available to other devices. Suddenly, you must deal with different keyboards, varying screen sizes, unavailable APls, different carrier Internet settings, and more. Navigating this can be a nightmare. Or it can be exhilarating. This chapter will discuss the major items to keep in mind as you write and port your app, and, by considering them from early on, you can cut down on the grindwork of rewrites and focus on the joy of bringing your app to everyone.
