Native widget in Tizen 2.4 mobile


In this article you will learn by example, how to create a Tizen 2.4 mobile native widget and how to share data between a widget, service and a UI application.

In short words, a widget in Tizen is a small application which is displayed on the home screen of a device. Typically we use a clock widget, weather widget, sticky note widget, recent contacts widget etc. Widgets can be created using the Tizen Native API and they can be distributed in the Tizen Store only when accompanied by a regular UI application.

Camera - image grabbing and live modifications to the preview frame and the final picture


This article will show you how to grab a camera preview frame and apply some effects to it.  Also, it describes how to apply the very same effect on the eventually taken picture using only the Tizen Native Camera and the Image Util C API.

In the presented example we want to add a sepia effect to a camera preview and the final picture. Sepia is an effect which makes the picture look like an old-fashioned monochromatic photograph, colorized with brown tones.
