BlackBerry 10 Cascades MapView
Beyond any doubt, mapping is one of the most valued features of the modern smartphones and mobile devices. That said, a rich set of mapping APIs for BlackBerry 10 is here! Some of you may have already seen it in our API references for Cascades, and some may have even tried it. Now, with the latest SDK update (10.0.9.2318), we’ve got maps for all of our Cascades developers out there.
MapView provides beautiful map tiles and supports all the basic interactions such as pinch-to-zoom and drag-n-pan, drop push pins for POIs and bubbles to present more details about a POI. Better yet, both the pin and the bubble can be fully customized to represent your own branding. ( watch the video above).
The MapView takes it to the next level with APIs for tilting and rotating the map in a 3D space. Hook those two up with the gyroscope and the compass and you’ve got augmented reality in your app with zero effort.
