    Three open source projects for WRT developers: Bing, Buzz and RSS 

    Today I’ve released three widgets as open source projects on the brand new project management tool by Nokia, to allow all WRT developers to freely use and contribute to them.

    The first project is for a widget that allows the user to perform searches through the Bing search engine.

    Its code shows how many widgets’ common features can be implemented, including:

    • integrate a public REST API
    • retrieve and show dynamic data from network
    • detect and adapt to different screen resolutions
    • handle touch and key-based user interaction
    • show tabbed views
    • download dynamic code updates and new versions of the widget

    The second widget is a configurable RSS reader supporting multiple RSS feeds at once. The widget is easily adaptable to different needs, where retrieval and displaying of remote XML feeds is needed.

    The last project is a client for Google’s Buzz social network: the current functionalities include searching by keyword, and retrieving of Buzzes of a single user. Many more features are under development: feel free to take a look and integrate yours :)

    As these are open source projects, everyone is invited to dig into the code and to contribute to the them: just join the project, and start experimenting! To start, visit Forum Nokia Projects.

    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

      Aw… Hope there’d be a similar apps like OVI Show available for other S60 devices. Thanx for ur answer anyway. :)

    Rich Internet Application developer’s guide for Nokia devices 

    Forum Nokia has recently published a very informative guide about developing RIAs for mobile devices: A developer’s guide to creating Rich Internet Applications for Nokia devices.

    The document focuses on three kind of applications: websites, web apps, and stand-alone Adobe Flash applications, covering all topics involved in design and development of a RIA, from development tools to user experience design and evaluation, from testing to going to market.

    Mobile offers significant opportunities for RIAs. The ability to access data and information anywhere there is a suitable network connection is of significant appeal to mobile users. The knowledge that their data is also securely stored on a remote server, regardless of what happens to the mobile device, is a significant attraction as well.
    With many hundreds of millions of Nokia devices already in the market place that can run RIAs now, there has never been a better time to go mobile with your RIA.

    Check it out!
