To simplify application development on the Symbian platform
Symbian has unveiled new web application development tools, which the company says will simplify application development on the Symbian platform, providing access to consumers and device manufacturers within the mobile market.
Symbian said that the added value delivered by its tools environment is in the areas such as mobile-specific application preview, debugging and deployment capabilities. These features further support the transition of desktop development skill into the mobile universe.
The new tools, which came out of community beta are available across major platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux.
Lee Williams, executive director at Symbian, said: “Now anyone can create fantastic applications for devices such as the Nokia N8, the world’s first Symbian^3 device.
“These Symbian web application development tools provide an ideal entry point for web developers targeting the vast, new development opportunities offered by the Symbian^3 platform and the wider mobile marketplace, where compelling applications are proving their ability to fuel communities.”
