The Samsung Mobile Innovator Widget portal allows developers to author widgets which are optimised to run on Samsungâ€™s advanced TouchWiz UI. As touch becomes more popular you can find this interface on increasingly more devices across the entire Samsung portfolio, whether they are built on Symbian, Windows Mobile or Samsungâ€™s own proprietary system which drives Samsungâ€™s feature-phones.
Rapid development and a consistent experience across all Samsung smartphone and feature-phone devices are just two of the benefits being delivered with the launch of the Samsung Mobile Innovator Widget Section.
Why build Widgets?
What will you find in the Widget Portal?
- Tools and SDKs
You can download Samsung Mobile Widget SDK, a development environment, which is based on the Eclipse platform, and is designed to help you develop widgets for Samsung mobile devices running the Samsung TouchWiz UI interface.
- Knowledge base articles
This area provides you with the information youâ€™ll need to get started building Samsung Mobile Widgets. Youâ€™ll find an in-depth overview of the technical specifications and features of our widget implementation and sample widgets.
- Discussion Boards
You can share your thoughts on widgets and your experience developing widgets previously with other program members, or you can discuss your techniques you use when designing a widget interface.
- Testing tools
The Widget Test Page will provide a well documented online interface to upload and download widgets. A developer might publish his/her widgets (making them available to the public with or without charge). The widgets will be certified before being published. Support for tests will be also provided (documentation and tools).
