Magellan Compass v4 Black Screen

We received that some are getting a black screen when they launch v4 on the PlayBook.  Deleting the app and re-installing the app seems to resolve the issue.  We will look into this further so it does not occur in future releases.

Papillon Currency Conversion New to BB10

Currency ConvertA new app will be available for BB10 when it is released next month.  We took out the currency conversion feature out of Papillon Converter for the PlayBook into its own app for BB10.  It allows for better use of the screen when dealing with currency conversion.  Rates are automatically stored on the device for off-line use.  Rates can be shared with BBM friends if for some reason they do not have Papillon Currency Conversion.  Here is a screen shot of the app:

Magellan Compass 4 for PlayBook

Magellan CompassThere was a little confusion with RIM on the versions we submitted for Magellan Compass v4 for BB10 and PlayBook.  The BB10 version was approved and the PlayBook version was not.  Things were sorted out and we have been told that the PlayBook version was approved.  So user’s should be seeing it shortly.

Magellan Compass for BB10 Released

Magellan CompassA long road to get here.  BB10 version of Magellan Compass 4.0 has been released to App World.  It has tons of new features from the 3.x version of Magellan Compass for the PlayBook, and there are even unique features from the 4.0 PlayBook version.  We hope it will get approved soon for BB10 Dev Alpha users.  We hope those users will provide some feed back prior to the final release in January.

v4 for BB10 has all the great features of v4 for PlayBook, but also includes:

  • Total different User Interface special for BB10 devices
  • Foursquare integration for places
  • BBM sharing of address, places, events and current location
  • Event discovery via Eventful and Eventbrite
  • Updated social links to keep track of o2 interactive

Holiday Season

Next week starts the lengthy holiday season.  Our schedule will be in flux, so if you are trying to get a hold of us, we will respond, it just might be a few extra days.  We will try to check in from time to time for urgent issues, but we finally get a chance to chill from our typical 12 hour days.  Happy Holiday to all and we are certain everyone is looking forward to next year and the release of BB10.

Where’s Magellan Compass 4.0?

Magellan CompassWe uploaded Magellan Compass to App World a week or so ago.  “Typically”, it only takes 1-2 days for an update to get approved.  However, RIM ran some developer promotions in the last week and they are dealing with about 6,000 new apps to review.  So Magellan Compass is in the queue and “Under Review”, so it may take a little longer then we hoped for.
