Nokia’s SNAP 2.0 breaks out

A new SDK for Nokia’s SNAP mutliplayer gaming platform has been released.

Version 2.0 of the development kit boasts a simpler API and faster emulation and testing tools. It is free to obtain through Forum Nokia – which boasts it is the largest ‘mobile development community worldwide with 3.4 million registered members’.

A number of developers have already been using the SDK, said Nokia – with positive results.

"The SNAP Mobile SDK 2.0 makes it easier for developers to write and debug a connected mobile Java game, and brings fun to development," said Randolf Wu, business development director, PocketNet.

"I had the SDK up and running on my desktop within minutes of downloading. It’s invaluable as it provides a realistic game play environment for a cellular network. For example, it can simulate error conditions so that we can check that our games will respond appropriately when an error occurs. The SNAP Mobile SDK is a mature toolset to the point where bugs are not really an issue, and it just gets better and better with each release."
