Including the initial learning curve, it took me all of 5 days to complete the app in question, and I’m quite pleased with the result, even if it is still a bit rough around the edges. Unfortunately, since Origo IDE is still a work in progress, some functionality is simply not available yet (such as calling the phone’s dialler, sending sms’s, use of the camera – though these API’s are apparently being added as we speak). So I’ll be adding to the app as and when the framework gets updated.
The app itself is a guide / e-book on snakes most commonly found throughout South Africa. It’s available as a free download, so please feel free to play around with it and give me some feedback – good or bad, it’s all a learning experience.
The app has been tested and works on all Nokia Symbian S60 5th edition handsets . (Including Nokia N97, N97 mini, 5800, 5530 and X6 handsets.)
