Archives For Built for BlackBerry

last week at BBLive I got the information, that now also my app ‘ekkes Tea Timer‘ got certified as ‘Built For BlackBerry‘ 🙂

ekkes TeaTimer


you see: even a small utility app like a Tea Timer can become certified as ‘Built For BlackBerry’:

  • I’m trying to follow Cascades UI Guidelines as much as possible
  • social networks integrated: FourSquare, BBM
  • Invocation Framework: FourSquare, BBM, Remember (Evernote)
  • Application Menu
  • working in the minimized background, notifying the Hub if Tea is ready

I’m proud because now there are already 3 of my apps certified as ‘Built For BlackBerry’

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.

Some DataRooms and Content listed on Q10:



All the functionality from Touch devices like Peek-back are also available on Q10 of course:


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):


OpenDataSpace is available from BlackBerry World

the app is FREE and there’s also a FREE account from ods for up to 5 users and 2 GB Data Space.
