Web App Development
Important Notice: “Cloud preview” functionality within Nokia Asha web apps tools 3.0 is no longer available. We recommend previewing apps locally via the Web App Simulator (WAS) included as part of the web apps tools download.
The Nokia Asha software platform provides a powerful, data efficient web apps environment. Targeting this environment, you leverage your web development skills to create connected apps that deliver web content with an engaging, interactive UX that’ll appeal to consumers globally or can be targeted at specific local markets.
- The Nokia Asha UI builds on the popular Series 40 UI. Delivered through a 3.0’’ QVGA capacitive touch screen, it supports two touch points for pinch-to-zoom and similar gestures. The UI swipe paradigm has been extended to include the Options Menu and fast access to the Home screen. A hardware back-button enables consumers to easily navigate an app’s hierarchy.
- To make most of the Nokia Asha UI, web apps include an API to listen for the hardware back-button. In addition, enhanced HTML tag support also means you can add image and video capture to your web apps.
- The Nokia Asha web app tools deliver a Nokia Asha software platform option to the simulator and fresh examples that show you how to use the latest APIs.
