    Developer Platform

    Hi,

    If I develop an application for n79, can I install/run that application on any other s60 device? Like the E51 for example.


    Thanks in advance.

    It depends. For the most parts, it should work on all devices based on the same S60/Symbian version. It will also probably run on newer versions (due to backwards compatibility promise of the platform). There are no guarantess, though, so you should test your application on more devices than one, to be sure.

    Note also changes due to firmware versions, and operator customization.

    Note also that there was a total binary break when going from S60 2nd Edition and Symbian 8 and earlier to S60 3rd Edition and Symbian 9 and later.

    The Developer Platform of N79 is "S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2". So for Symbian that application will work fine for all devices have Developer Platform S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2. check device list of S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices/m...3ed_fp2_1.html

    It also work on S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 and S60 3rd Edition MR devices, if it not use any FP2 specific API.

    Okay, thanks a lot for the info.

    Is it advisable to use lower edition specific APIs to achieve maximum compatibility?

    Yes, it is advisable.

    You can also create different versions of the application for different S60 platform versions.
