BREW Development Experience: Reflections & Afterthoughts
Change frequency of news updates
One problem area we encountered was with finding a mobile news service provider.
You may be able to write the best mobile news application, but it won’t be successful without a good news provider.
Currently, there are few major news providers that deliver news in a format that can be easily interpreted by mobile devices.
Mobile news services are a new and develop-ing field with exciting possibilities.
Developing with the BREW API has been our pleasure.
With further develop-ment and better docum-entation, we believe BREW is on its way to becoming the platform for mobile phones.
As more developers begin to support the platform, we are excited to see what else is possible with BREW.
