Second beta of the Smart Installer released
An updated version of the Smart Installer for Symbian has been released.
I already explained how to use it in the previous blog entry, so I suggest you just go there and follow the steps there to try it out. Here is a short changelog of whats new in v0.18:
Increased stability by rewriting the application engines: - better error handling
- more robust downloads in poor network conditions
Smoother UI flow by reducing amount of prompts:
- you still sometimes get the IAP selection, that will be hidden whenever possible in the future
- select Smart Installer from the application menu and pending installation continues
- only one pending installation is supported
I've made two applications available to install and try out. They are both properly Symbian Signed. Spot the one that involved a professional graphical designer btw? ;) Just click on the image to install.
And to prove it's actually working. Here is a video of a the weather app above being installed on a Nokia 5800.
In the video there are at the moment four prompts. We are working on getting rid of the Internet prompt - and then get it down to three. When used together with the OVI client the number of prompts will go down to one or even zero. Note: The order of the prompts in the video and what you experience will be different as I updated the .sis after I taped the video. The prompts at the moment are:
- Install wrapper app?
- Install Smart Installer?
- Go online?
- Where to install?
We expect the Smart Installer to be ready for commercial use mid-2010.
