last week at BBLive I got the information, that now also my app ‘ekkes Tea Timer‘ got certified as ‘Built For BlackBerry‘ 🙂

you see: even a small utility app like a Tea Timer can become certified as ‘Built For BlackBerry’:

  • I’m trying to follow Cascades UI Guidelines as much as possible

  • Application Menu
  • working in the minimized background, notifying the Hub if Tea is ready

I’m proud because now there are already 3 of my apps certified as ‘Built For BlackBerry’

      QString providerDisplayName;
      QString optionsValue;
      int i;
      for (i = 0; i add(
