Palm Opens New Developer Network

Palm has introduced a new online development environment for creating Palm webOS applications called Project Ares.

Palm says Ares is the first complete set of integrated mobile development tools hosted entirely in the browser. The goal is to make it easier and faster to create Palm webOS apps.

The Palm Developer Network Blog provides more details. “Ares streamlines the entire app development process, from design, to coding, to debugging, to app submission. You can preview apps right in the browser, and—with the Palm Mojo SDK installed—it takes just one click in Ares to launch your app in the emulator or on a webOS device. When you’re ready to distribute your app, one more click lets you package and download your app for submission to the App Catalog.”

“We invite you to join us in Project Ares: try it out, build some apps, and give us your feedback as we work to make our vision a reality. To use Ares, you just need to register for a free Palm developer community account. Once you’ve registered, just log in at ares.palm.com and you’ll be off and running. You’ll also find docs and a tutorial there to help you get off on the right foot.”
