The BlackBerry PlayBook was officially launched on April 19th. I wasn’t expecting too much from my little Meetup Search application, because I don’t consider it done. The API wasn’t a full release yet and I sort of rushed to finish it in time for the free PlayBook giveaway. Now that the API 1.0.1 version has been released, I will go back and clean up my application. I am still waiting for my free PlayBook, which was supposed to arrive to developers “around the time the device is available in the area”, which was on the 19th. Rumor has it, we’ll all get them today on the 22nd.
Like I said, I didn’t expect a ton of downloads on the first day, of course analysts didn’t expect 50,000 in sales and pre-orders either. So, I am glad to see that some people downloaded my free application. Currently there isn’t a way to get a feed from the download page, so I guess I’ll have to export the graph on a regular basis.
