A free Nokia Developer webinar, Introduction to Xpress Web App Builder for Series 40, will feature live coding demos that show you how to use the new Nokia Xpress Web App Builder to create a Series 40 web app in mere minutes. You will also learn how to import your web app into other Nokia tools for customisation.
Through live coding demonstrations of the new Nokia Xpress Web App Builder, this webinar will show you how easy it is to create a Series 40 web app from RSS feeds, social media content, and even clipped live web content. You will learn how to customise your app with a unique look and feel, advertising, and other features. You can also submit your resulting web app to Nokia Store for access to millions of consumers around the world.
Join Tapan Acharya, lead developer consultant and evangelist with Nokia. He will explain the architecture of the new Xpress Web App Builder and describe how it relates to the Series 40 web apps platform. Tapan will also demonstrate the tool as he creates and tests high-quality web apps.
Web apps created with Nokia Xpress Web App Builder are suitable for publication to Nokia Store without the need for further development. For developers who want to add features to web apps created with Xpress Web App Builder, Tapan will explain how to use Nokia Web Tools 2.0 to import the apps for customisation.
Today we proudly announce availability of the new Xpress Web App Builder—a new set of easy-to-use tools for Series 40 developers. These new tools make web app development even easier. With minimal effort, developers can create great apps for recent Series 40 devices, including the expanding range of Nokia Asha devices.
The new and enhanced Xpress Web App Builder tools are for Series 40 development only, and will replace the current app wizard tools.
If you have published Series 40 apps using app wizard, we recommend that you re-publish using new Xpress Web App Builder. The new tools offer more stylish templates, social media content and new ways to monetize web apps, without the need to write a single line of code. In addition, apps created with Xpress Web App Builder will be available as source code downloads that can be imported into Nokia Web Tools for further customisation.
Please find below some important dates as we transition from app wizard to the new enhanced Xpress Web App Builder tools:
From September 30, 2012, the app wizard tool will not be accepting new registrations. Series 40 developers are encouraged to start using the new Xpress Web App Builder tools to create web apps.
Until October 31, 2012, existing app wizard publishers can submit limited updates for existing app. We encourage developers to sign-in at appwizard.nokia.com to gather images, links, descriptions, and report data for published apps, and then re-publish these apps using the new Xpress Web App Builder tools.
Existing app wizard apps will continue be available in Nokia Store until the end of 2013. In the interim period, consumers will continue to be able to download and enjoy app wizard apps as usual. Simultaneously, Nokia reserves the right to remove select app wizard apps which have not generated significant recent download volumes.
