vTap updated for OS 4.3

11 Comments

vTapHayden just updated us on the status of vTap, the video search and video player for mobile. It’s now optimized for BlackBerry OS 4.3, which included streaming video support, and stretches back to the 8700. The search is pretty cool, working a lot like Boopsie in that it offers results as you type. On top of YouTube searching, they’ve also got a Wikipedia search with the same instant-return feature. The usual disclaimer follows that you probably shouldn’t be trying this out unless you’ve got an unlimited data plan, or really deep pockets. While it doesn’t look like the video search is ready just yet (just Wikipedia), we’re sure it will soon be accessible at http://m.vtap.com from your mobile browser.

    pierre, if you have a BlackBerry with the 4.3 OS, you should not have to download anything. If you just access the url m.vtap.com from the browser on your device, you should see the m.vtap.com site named “vTap Video Search”. Do you see this site?

    The Tour or 9630 wants vTap.com app. But I too feel the vTap.com loss.

    The app brings numerous fault notices, but has yet to stream.

    Its a shame because this 9630 is the next phone to keep. Sprint gave me a less than half off on their extended battery pack which brings the 9630 in line with the Moto Q9c’s 7 to 9 hour runtime as shipped by sprint. The extended battery pack is small and very light and gives the 9630 a full charge in a minute thirty seconds. It can recharge the 9630 twice or six hours full on additional power in pocket and lightweight. Mca5516
