The latest version 2.1.1 of the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ SDK for Smartphones (release notes) is now available for download. Known as the Echo release, this update provides new features that can be used by developers to build even better capabilities into their BlackBerry WebWorks applications.
What’s new in this release?
- BlackBerry® 7 OS simulator – a BlackBerry® Bold™ 9930 simulator running BlackBerry 7 OS device software is now included in the WebWorks SDK download.
- Web Inspector – As promised in a previous blog post, developers can now use WebKit Web inspector to debug, test and profile Web browser or BlackBerry WebWorks application content running on a live device or simulator.
- Microphone API – The same API that was recently made available for the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS can now be used to record WAV audio files in BlackBerry WebWorks applications running on BlackBerry smartphones.
Microphone API code sample
Use the microphone to record audio and immediately save it as a WAV file to the BlackBerry smartphone file system or a removable SDCard.
