Follow Me As I learn To Develop & Publish My First BB App

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

Yelp, Top 25 BB app

Yelp App

Yelp, Top 25 BB app #1

I LOVE Yelp.com. Yelp.com is my boy! I yelped a moving company earlier this morning (you know when a website is bomb ass when it becomes a verb).

Buzzd App

What is buzzd?  Well it’s supposed to be some sort of venue/”social”/city guide that helps you navigate the world around you.

The DL:
You have to let the app have access to your phone (it asks twice for two different things), which is to gather info about your whereabouts. So not necessarily the app for the privacy-prone.
I guess the *socialness* comes from the fact that you have to register for a screenname, and can upload a pic..

Truth be told, I’m not 100% what this app is. The website, buzzd.com looks pretty enough, but what is really going on?
Here’s what I’m guessing:

Google Maps

Google's Map App

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:

Google’s Gmail App

BB's Gmail App

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.

First Post

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. ;)

Feel free to like this page, add it on FB, follow on twitter, and email me with your ideas & app suggestions!

– Whitney
