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.
