Blackberry PlayBook users will soon have a powerful new weapon in their productivity arsenals. As part of its effort to show its support for a plethora of development standards, RIM invited Mark Rechsteiner of Canadian development firm Thoughtcorp to show off his upcoming HTML 5-based annotation application, Jotsy.
Rechsteiner showed that, after opening the application, the user is first presented with a list of available documents to open (shown in the picture above). The documents can be synced with the cloud but are stored locally so the entire application runs offline.
After selecting a file, the user sees that document on a plain white screen, with no overhead menus or toolbars. Rechsteiner explained that this clean look is key for maximizing screen real estate on mobile platforms.
