RIM BBX Cascades UI for BlackBerry Apps Demo Video
The fortunes of Research In Motion haven’t been too good lately what with the poor reception to RIM’s only tablet the BlackBerry PlayBook and recently the devastating BlackBerry outage problem, but Research In Motion is hoping those fortunes will turn round in the future with the unveiling of their new BBX operating system, a key feature of which is the Cascades user interface framework, which we have a demonstration video of below for your viewing consideration.
The Cascades Demo: Rich UI Development for BlackBerry Apps footage comes our way courtesy of the guys over at Ubergizmo and by way of the official BlackBerry Blog and delivers a minute and a half of showing off Cascades.
Apparently Cascades isn’t that new as according to the blog post the company that Research In Motion acquired, TAT has been using Cascades for quite some time in their own apps and user interfaces.
Anyway, Cascades offers features such as flexible UI layouts including free form lists, 3D support, core UI feature support, the ability to mix pre-packaged UI components with custom components, and great performance including “amazing transitions and animations,” along with tight device integration.
The demonstration footage below does appear to be quite impressive despite the lack of commentary but obviously one doesn’t require audio to appreciate the visual.
The word is Cascades will be released as a Beta in the Fall of 2011 and will see more advanced features arrive in future releases.
That’s it, all you need do now is head on down and mash that play button to check out the Cascades demonstration, and feel free to express your opinions on Cascades to our comments area below…enjoy.
