Default New Blackberry App

Please Login to Remove!


I am new to the world of Blackberry and new to the world of the BBforums, so hopefully I have come to the right spot!

I have an idea for and app that I think could be developed on BB and other mobile phones.

Basically I need some advice as to what to do next as I have NO developer skills at all.

If I have an idea for an app (as millions of people seem to do), what should I do to progress it into something real.

The app itself would require a lot of research and data entry from me in the first place, but am hoping that once up and running, users could upload to it and be involved in updating it.

Dont want to give too much away as I am a novice, but would love to speak to someone who has some more experience with this.

I have apps posted in a number of websites, and I get tons of emails every day from people with "ideas". Usually they want someone to develop it for them, package it for them, market it for them, and then get half the profit. lmao.

I think their are more ideas than developers. SO my advice would be to install eclipse, read the developer tutorials on and code away. Use the developer support forums for specific problems but there is no "easy way".
