Meetup for BlackBerry 4.2.8 and 4.2.9

ssMeetup_1440x1440

I ended up releasing two quick fixes for different bugs. The firs release, 4.2.8, was to fix a simple issue with authentication to the Meetup.com website for the application. A while ago, Meetup changed their API to use a different method for making calls. With this update, they changed the URLs for the calls, which actually made things easier. I had gone through and updated all the URLs for my app at some point and basically forgot about it. I’m guessing that those old URLs were finally deprecated and that shut off the application authentication call that I was pointing Continue reading Meetup for BlackBerry 4.2.8 and 4.2.9

Chart js and the Tool Tip

I assume that every developer likes to know how the things that they make are being used by those who use it, to some extent. In the mobile app world, it isn’t the best idea to track every move the user makes, but you could do it, if you plan on making your customers a little annoyed with you. At a minimum app developers can track the number of downloads for the app through statistics provided by the app vendor. This is extremely important if the app brings in money and you want to verify with the vendor that you Continue reading Chart js and the Tool Tip

Meetup for BlackBerry 4.2.7

IMG Leave Group

Meetup for BlackBerry 10 by DeanLogic version 4.2.7 is now available for download. As with the 4.2.6 release, this release is meant to give the user the Leave Group option for a Meetup group. This doesn’t give the user the option of telling the Organizer why you are leaving the group, but I will put that in later. There also isn’t a warning to keep your from leaving a group by accident either.  So, use with caution, because you have to use the site to Join a Group.  As stated  before, the Join Group steps are different based on the group Continue reading Meetup for BlackBerry 4.2.7

Meetup for BlackBerry 4.2.6 and deleteResource

IMG Leave Group

Meetup for BlackBerry 10 by DeanLogic version 4.2.6 is now available for download. Unfortunatley, it doesn’t look like my change went through correctly and I noticed that I need to fix something that corresponds with that change. The change added was the ability to Delete (Leave) a Group. I had been playing around trying to get this to work on a previous release and I accidently left the menu option available. Also, I had a couple requests for the feature, so I thought I would give it another try. I still haven’t added Join Group due to the complexity of Continue reading Meetup for BlackBerry 4.2.6 and deleteResource

Text to Speech (TTS) integration via Read Out! (TTS) on BlackBerry 10

Read Out Featured small

Sometimes you like to listen to stuff instead of reading it yourself. In some situations this can became very handy. It’s the same for users of your app(s) as well. For that reason it could be a good fit to integrate a working text to speech (TTS) solution to your apps. Read Out! (TTS) is probably one of the most popular and complete TTS apps available for BlackBerry 10. I’ve developed the app by myself back in July 2015 and since then provided some updates. As I started the development of Read Out! (TTS), it wasn’t even been meant to Continue reading Text to Speech (TTS) integration via Read Out! (TTS) on BlackBerry 10
