Sony to launch 'Skinny' non-game app software Sony has introduced a new 'Skinny' SDK this past week, one that will give developers a way to create non-game applications and add them to the PlayStation Store, quickly and easily.
The company has described the lightweight 'Skinny' tool as "a simple yet effective means for content holders to put their intellectual property on the PlayStation platforms without software development."

On average, the apps will take one day to create. The software will be mainly used (Sony hopes) to create "strategy guides, game maps, cheats, training manuals, episodic videos, eBooks and eMagazines," and will include a web-based authoring tool and a software client.

It will be available for the PS3 and the PSP.
