    New UI components for Web Runtime widgets by Dr. Jukka 

    Web Runtime widgets definitely need frameworks and UI components to be easily plugged and used, without the need to re-adapt and rewrite JavaScript code originally intended for the Web, more than for mobile devices.

    For this reason, It’s a pleasure to see Dr. Jukka releasing a new set of UI components, specifically intended for S60 touch devices.

    Here is the full list of components:

    • Accordion
    • Busy
    • Button
    • Carousel
    • Checkbox
    • LightBox
    • Optionsbox
    • ProgressBar
    • Radiobox
    • Rating
    • TextLabel
    • ToggleSwitch
    • ToggleSwitch list

    Components’ documentation is available on Forum Nokia Wiki, and you can also preview the components online, by using this page.

    Good job Jukka! :)

      Thanks Alessandro. Publish comparison of Guarana and these components sometime.

      Hi Punit! Sure, I’m planning to post some comparative tests, also including other UI frameworks that can be used in the WRT environment.

    A new community for all mobile developers, designers and everything-else gets officially launched today, thanks to the efforts of Giorgio Natili, Leonardo Risuleo, and Alessandro La Rosa (me ;)): http://www.mobilerevamp.org

    With different backgrounds, we all aim at providing useful information about the mobile environment, in all its aspects. From its manifesto:

    Explore the Ovi Store on your home screen, with Ovi Show! 

    Ovi Show! is a new widget that allows you to discover new content on the Ovi Store directly from the home screen of your Nokia device!

    How to use it? Just add it to your home screen and, when you see some cool content, click on it and you’ll be redirected to its Ovi Store download page. Simple! :)

    Ovi Show! is configurable through a settings menu, that you find opening the widget from its icon, in your phone’s menu. You can choose which content categories to filter, and how to sort the content retrieved from the store, choosing from “Top Free”, “Best Seller” and “New”.

    Once you have chosen the desired settings, don’t forget to click on “Save”, or your preferences will not be applied.

    Being just  a first release, Ovi Show! can be improved thanks to your feedback, so please post here your comments or thoughts about it! :)

    Ovi Show! is available for download here:

    Note: to use Ovi Show!, your Nokia device must support home screen widgets. Currently the devices supporting home screen widgets are: Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 mini.

      Hi, there. I downloaded and installed it on my Nokia E52, but what to do next after saved the settings? There’s not even a botton for me to press, or maybe it’s not compatible with S60v3 FP2 devices?

    • pit 12:43 pm on June 7, 2010 Permalink

      Hi Trigold,

      Ovi Show is compatible with Nokia devices supporting home screen widgets, so currently with: Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 mini.


    • Trigold 4:16 pm on June 7, 2010 Permalink
