Cascades Client for OpenDataSpace

OpenDataSpace just got some updates: most important one is the support of BlackBerry Q10 with physical keyboard.

We also added an Action to ApplicationMenu: FAQ, where you find answers for your questions or can add new questions.

Here are some screenshots, so you can imagine how it looks on the Q10.

As you can see, on Q10 OpenDataSpace is using a dark theme, where on the Z10 we’re using the bright one. It’s recommended to use a dark theme because of the OLED and will give you more battery power.

OpenDataSpace now also has specific Images as Scene Cover if minimized (running in background):
