If you’re planning to attend the BlackBerry 10 Jam conference coming up soon, you may want to check out a sessions titled ‘BlackBerry 10 Flow and the Invocation Framework’. In this session, RIM will show how developers will be able to seamlessly run apps within apps. The description of the session is as follows:
The Invocation Framework in the BlackBerry® 10 platform is designed to allow one app to integrate with another, while also keeping the flow absolutely seamless and natural to the user. See how you can invoke an app with your content and carry out an action while also including an embeddable view of another app inside yours. Join us to see why sharing content and performing tasks with another app has never been this easy or powerful.”
Essentially, you’ll be able to open embedded content (say a webpage) from within your app. Therefore, keeping your app’s user in one place without them ever having to exit your app. This could be great for apps that need to popup maps, leaderboards, etc. The session ID is DEV117, which will be on Wednesday at 4:45pm EST.
