Tip Calculator for BlackBerry 10

Tip Calculator for BlackBerry 10

Well after a few days getting to grips with Cascades and BB10 we have completed our first app. Admittedly its a rather simple app but hey, you gotta start somewhere right?

Anyway, let me introduce you to Tip Buddy for BlackBerry 10:

Whilst it doesn’t look complex (and you’d be right) it does have some nice little features including some animation and different rounding options.

“So how did you get on with your first BB10 app?” I hear you cry. Well thanks for asking and actually it was pretty easy. We used QML to design the UI which (using the QNX Momentics IDE) was very simple plus a handful of C++ routines to handle some of the functionality such as automatic currency symbols.

We have a lot of plans for this OS so watch this space.
