You want to get in on the action of developing apps for smartphones? Dont’ want to bother downloading a piece of software onto your own computer in order to do it? I guess the folks at Palm are listening to your requests, because the Palm Ares SDK has just gone into public beta.
The Palm Ares SDK is a web-based software development package that lets you code and create apps for the webOS-based Palm Pre and Palm Pixi. This is quite different from Mojo, which is Palm’s more traditional webOS SDK.
The development environment with Ares is completely web-based, meaning that you don’t have to download and/or purchase any additional tools to turn your app ideas into a reality. Well you’ll still need some knowhow, but you don’t need much in terms of a “hardcore coding background.”
To take the Palm Ares SDK out for a test spin, head on over to the official page at ares.palm.com. Let us know how it goes.
