Ovi SDK launched

Ovi-sdkSTUTTGART, Germany – Creating applications for Nokia devices has just got a whole lot easier. This morning on the second day of Nokia World 09 the Ovi SDK Beta was unveiled, along with a new navigation API. What’s more the new SDK will enable developers to deploy applications across multiple devices, quickly and easily. The new navigation API offers developers the opportunity to bring navigation directly into applications.

The new web-based toolbox offers developers an SDK which will not only enable them to develop for Symbian and Maemo but also for the web. It also brings in a new, distinct, user interface made up of a series of libraries, alongside integrated Ovi features. The Ovi SDK Beta utilizes standard web-based technologies including HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Forming part of the SDK is the Ovi Navigation Player API. This sits alongside the previously launched Ovi Maps Player API which developers have already being using to create innovative new applications. Adding navigation to the mix offers a wealth of new app opportunities (apportunities anyone?) including the ability to guide app users to specific destinations.

The SDK Beta is available now by invitation, go to Forum Nokia to register your interest.
