BlackBerry Application Development

BlackBerry is a powerful platform best known for its on-device message encryption. Security and reliability are characteristics that make BlackBerry attractive to enterprises and government agencies. With their experience, QBurst engineers can build enterprise grade solutions that extend the capabilities of this platform beyond emails and messages.  Show More

BlackBerry smartphone applications can be developed as a web app or a Java app. Web apps are written using HTML/CSS/JavaScript and run on the BlackBerry browser. The Java app is developed using native BlackBerry APIs and can make full use of the device capabilities. A third and hybrid variety combines a HTML user interface and Java API access.

Native Java development brings the highest degree of customization to BlackBerry applications. Java apps can access input devices such as touch screen, trackball and trackwheel, use data from the accelerometer, and store data locally in SQLite database. These apps also provide the best user experience.

While Java apps are feature rich and offer greater flexibility, they take longer to develop. When time and cost are constraints and your app does not require push notification, a web app may be the way to go. We can help you weigh the pros and cons and decide on the most suitable path. At QBurst, the BlackBerry development team can handle HTML Webworks just as well as the native Java SDK.

A major challenge in BB development is the unavailability of some of the popular third party libraries. Our developers have successfully written those library equivalents and helped our enterprise clients. For example: Janrain, a single sign-on tool, doesn't provide a library for BlackBerry but it does for Android and iPhone. So, we developed a Janrain custom library for BB. We can create similar custom libraries to realize your app dreams. Though J2ME programming has certain limitations when compared with Objective C and Java, our BB architects have surmounted these limitations with their out of the box solutions.

At QBurst, developers choose between BlackBerry Java Development Environment and BlackBerry plug-in for Eclipse to build native apps. We test on an array of devices before certifying the apps for delivery. We have developed several BlackBerry apps that improve employee productivity and efficiency. We are equally experienced in tuning the platform for consumer-focused applications.  Show Less
