Video of BBX Cascades UI Framework – Beta Coming in November

 IMG_5130 IMG_5131

RIM gave us a taste of the TAT’s (The Astonishing Tribe’s) UI framework called Cascades back at BlackBerry World. Now at DevCon 2011 things are starting to come together. RIM showed off the Cascades UI framework for the PlayBook and BBX. Now we know that the beta for developers is coming by the end of the November. That means that devs will be able to create engaging 3D apps based on simple and complex UI elements without having to be physics experts. You really have to read more on Cascades if you are a potential C++ PlayBook developer. It is really going to simplify things for devs when it comes to engaging users with slick UI’s.

Check out the video below:

Here are some more slides from the keynote:

  1. UGH, does this mean OS2.0 is delayed until at least November. Boooo!

    • According to Crackberry, what’s holding people back from getting the PlayBook is: (1.) No native PIM apps and (2.) Not many apps. Looks like they are taking care of the apps. Now they need to let TAT redo the UI homescreen/icons (maybe like sliding and throwing away a deck of cards with sound effects to match) to give it that fresh and new look. throw in universal search and PIM apps and we’re in business.

  2. Excellent time to be a BlackBerry developer

  3. Why doesn’t RIM get TAT to develop some native apps using their fancy UI framework? I think doing so will demonstrate to developers what they can achieve. Showing them the tools is all well and good but demonstrating with a finished app that people are using goes beyond proof of concept. Plus it gives us a really cool app to use :-)
