editor's review




BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator is a powerful software that allows developers to experiment with the BlackBerry environment without requiring a physical device.

Users are provided with a comprehensive platform that provides most of the functionality of an actual Blackberry phone, facilitating access to gesture simulation, debugging modules and other options such as tilting the device.

The program should be run inside a virtual machine that is equipped with support for accelerated graphics, which can also simulate peripherals.

As mentioned, there’s no need for a physical device, but as far as requirements are concerned, it asks that you install Java, Adobe Air SDK and VMware Player in order to successfully deploy and run.

The package includes a controller, which you must connect to the simulator by IP. Typically, it should automatically perform the connection, but if it doesn’t, you can do it manually just as well.

The controller part is very important, so much so that without it you can’t gain access to various parameters such as battery, NFC, sensors and orientation. It is also essential for the resizing of the simulator, since by default, it runs in portrait mode and is larger than a normal monitor.

The operations you can perform with BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator are endless, from opening and closing apps to loading and testing them, with customizable simulation conditions.

You can also run NFC and GPS-enabled apps, phone calls, Bluetooth connections, as well as mapping software.

On an ending note, BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator comes across as a steady program that can help developers to test and evaluate Blackberry applications for free, in an intuitive manner.
