Episode 2: What’s Cool in BlackBerry with BlackBerryCool

Comments

This is the next edition of What’s Cool in BlackBerry with BlackBerryCool: a short discussion with Rob Woodbridge and myself about what’s new this week in BlackBerry. This week, we talk about the launch of LinkedIn for BlackBerry, as well as the launch of the new BlackBerryCool SuperStore. Overall, the conversation is focused on the need for app stores, and what a good strategy is for BlackBerry app developers, given the large number of sales and distribution channels.

    If you want to touch a nerve of almost ever BlackBerry users I would touch on the Facebook application. I have been on Kyle's side with this whole programming issue, Facebook is a perfect example of spotty programming by RIM and maybe 2 or 3 programmers working with Facebook to get this application working properly. Why are BlackBerry Smartphones being ignored? Does Facebook not have the money to put into a BlackBerry application? or does RIM not care as much on the most popular social application in the world? Is programming so difficult for this OS that even RIMs dev cannot figure it out? Or are we just so low on the totem pole, RIM must be redistributing people on newer products like LinkedIn.

    I have never seen a failure of an application like this one. I would like to know who is going to get fired over this heap of code. I received a birthday reminder list on Sunday and as normal for the last year it looks like 1 long run on sentence no breaks or links anywhere…. wait lets start a list of things so the developers can figure out what I am saying..

    ~Notifications sometimes have the data in them sometimes they dont and redirect you to the mobile site.
    ~Birthday reminders likes 1 long run on sentence with no break, links or anything else
    ~When you message someone you have to wait 30 minutes for your friends list to populate it site about 32% and does not move
    ~You cannot tag a photo of some one that is not on your list. For instance I use the site all the time to tag photos of my child because they do not have a Facebook account on my list on the mobile version they restrict this.

    My list can go on for a page… Lets just start with that.

    Knock, knock?
    Who's there?
    defiantly not RIMs Facebook development team!!!!

    Need I say more :)
