| | How do I develop BB applications?
Please Login to Remove!
We are a small company with several BlackBerry Pearl phones and would like to develop a very simple password calculator program to install on them for our service engineers. I have never developed any software for a BlackBerry before, although I am familiar with Visual Basic and some HTML language.
What I would like to know is:
1. What development software do I need to use to create an application for use on the phone and what is the basic procedure involved?
2. Is this software available as freeware anywhere?
3. If the above answer is "no", are there alternatives?
It is not worth us spending any money to do this, as we can get by creating a small bespoke VB application on the engineers' laptops, but it would be nice to install it on the BlackBerry Pearls instead.
