I have been waiting for RIM to release Cascades since they first announced the native development for the PlayBook. Cascades is the way developers can create visually appealing AND consistently beautiful BlackBerry 10 apps with ease. To prove this point one of our friends, Keeper, shared a video of what he created (called Photo X) with Cascades in a day. Its a simple photo viewer yet what I found even more impressive was how easy it was for Keeper to develop the app. He has not developed in C/C++ since he learned the basics 11 years ago and just picked it up for this app. Check out the results below:
Let us know if you have been toying with Cascades and if you plan on building something with your skills! I am really waiting to see if Cascades will help lower the bar for entry to visually beautiful BlackBerry 10 apps that are a breeze to develop. Who would have thought a few years ago that BlackBerry development would be this straightforward?
