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

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

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

Mobile Development and ROI (Return on Investment)

Code Target

Over the last 3 years or so, I’ve been very lucky in mobile development and IoT.  I’ve built hundreds of applications and games cross platform (yay for me), passed my 250,000th download (celebration time), but I’ve had some mistakes and also learned a few hard lessons along the way. I’m going to share my top 15 “rules” I use to define my development model, and share what I use to make my apps and games profitable today. Disclaimer:  Some of this information may be obvious and these concepts may not be a good fit for every developer and every platform, Continue reading Mobile Development and ROI (Return on Investment)

A graphical difference in releases

Meetup for BB Releases

 I did the 4.2.4 release for Meetup for BlackBerry 10, I didn’t receive the notification email that there was an update to the app.  I think I even waited a day or so before doing the update myself, which was available when I went to myApps in BlackBerry App World.  This wasn’t the first time that I did a release and the notification didn’t go through to the phone.  In the last release, I got the review approval from BlackBerry and then the update notice within 12 hours.  The approval came after 10 pm and by the next morning I Continue reading A graphical difference in releases

Meetup for BlackBerry 10 releases – 1.2.3 thru 4.2.5

Meetup for BB10 product screen

This is my second update this month for Meetup for BlackBerry 10.  At the beginning of the month (May 4th), I relased 4.2.4 which were some quick fixes to solve an issue with the latest version of BB10 and the HTML content. Apparently, at some point after 10.2 release, the Dark Theme and HTML content in a Rich Text editor start publishing white text on white background.  This made reading Event and Group descriptions useless.  The only fix was to remove the Dark Theme.  Also, I hadn’t completely revamped my application look based on the change to my logo in Continue reading Meetup for BlackBerry 10 releases – 1.2.3 thru 4.2.5
