Developers have easy new ways to create web apps for Series 40 phones, thanks to two tools made available by Nokia:
- Web Clip Creator: This new, experimental menu-driven tool, available in Nokia Beta Labs, gives people with little or no mobile development experience a mechanism to create Series 40 web apps based on their current, publicly available websites.
- Ovi App Wizard: This free, easy-to-use Series 40 web app template is for RSS-based apps that are ready for publication on Nokia’s Ovi Store. A publisher’s news and information can be presented in a format that offers consumers interactive user interfaces with graphical transitions.
The two new tools follow the earlier announcement of Nokia Web Tools for Series 40 and the announcement that Series 40 web apps can be distributed through Ovi Store.
Also, web apps created with either Web Clip Creator or Ovi App Wizard and then published on Ovi Store can be entered in Nokia's Create for Millions contest, which will award the winners a share of cash and prizes worth 1 million euros.
