by Mauricio 214 views0

The HootSuite app for BlackBerry was released as a public beta last week but has already received a few updates. Here are the changes for the last three updates since release:

  • Version 0.3.07:
    • Invalid username/password errors
    • Avatars loading and cacheing issues
    • System resources drain when running in background
  • Version 0.3.09:
    • Avatar loading and threading
      • less CPU power consumption
      • better threading
      • increased UI responsiveness
      • running app in background results in less OS churn/usage
      • minor issues with blank avatars
    • Network code changes
      • BIS and WIFI are enabled and prioritized by default – Both can be disabled within the settings menu for faster network operation amongst users whose carriers properly set their APN settings already (MDS, direct connection, etc)
    • “Manage Accounts” screen
      • Users can exit the app without getting “trapped” if no accounts were added to the device previously (mainly an issue post-signup)
  • Version 0.3.11:
    • International characters fixed – Non-roman characters e.g. Thai, Japanese, Korean, Chinese now work from the compose screen
    • Font adjustments – Some font size tweaks to increase readability in various places
    • Facebook permission corrections – no more temporary access problems after adding Facebook accounts

If you’ve experienced any issues with the HootSuite app, you should definitely update to the latest version available. Remember, HootSuite for BlackBerry is still in beta so it might have other bugs lingering around. For more info and to download the app go to hootsuite.com/blackberry.
