The BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS allows web and mobile web developers to use the SDK in combination with their development tooling of choice to develop, test and package up their web applications as BlackBerry WebWorks applications for tablets. BlackBerry WebWorks applications are distributed through the BlackBerry App World storefront and run on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with access to the hardware.
BlackBerry PlayBook tablet applications are now being accepted into BlackBerry App World.
BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS features:
- Extend web applications to use the BlackBerry WebWorks APIs, which provide access to device hardware and capabilities and data such as native dialogs, invoking other applications and system information
- Transform a W3C widget archive file (i.e. zip) containing web assets (like images, etc.) into a BlackBerry WebWorks application package
- Use your favorite development tools or tooling in combination with the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK to develop, test and deploy applications
