This is new. I’ve decided I’m going to start out on (what seems like) the impossible quest of learning, developing, publishing & marketing my first BB app.
First: I don’t know a THING about developing apps- java, CSS, SDK, flash etc. It’s all foreign to me. 100% newbie here.
Second: As I learn, I’ll post. I want this to be a step-by-step guide for those of us (like myself) who don’t have a clue where to begin.
Third: I’m not sure yet whether I’ll develop a PlayBook tablet app, or a mobile app (I haven’t even gotten that far yet). Whatever I do, I will cover basics: building a theme-based app, an app for your blog/site, and then a more complicated app involving GPS locators, maps, directories etc.
Let’s start building apps! o.O
Google Maps, where to begin?
It can find “your” location, which is pretty nice considering sometimes I pop up out of the metro & haven’t the slightest idea as to where I am (yes, I live in DC where, yes the streets are letters and numbers – still. Sometimes you’re trying to navigate back to the metro from the club, and your alphabet gets all jacked up).
You can choose methods of transportation (Walking, Public, Car..). It looks a little like this:

If you’re like me you have about 5,000 different gmail sns- I’m not into syncing my emails directly to my BB, for a number of reasons (I hate the constant buzzing, I can’t tell any of the email addresses apart easily enough, etc.). But I love Google’s Gmail app.

This is my first post. Doesn’t get much simpler than that does it?
I created this website because I am a BB user frustrated by the process of finding & locating new apps, not to mention- figuring out if they’re even me-friendly (which is a little bit worse than user-friendly).
This will be a work in progress for me. Here’s what is going to happen:
1. I’ll upload 1 app per post, along with a brief synopsis on my thoughts/opinions of the app. User comments are greatly appreciated. Maybe you agree with me, maybe you disagree? Maybe you know of an app that’s a better version of the one posted. Ultimately, I’ll want to install a rating system for an easier-viewing guide.
2. As I grow and expand, I hope to find other users to help me post, not only BB apps, but Droid and iphone apps as well. But that’s well into the future. ;)
