Trapeez: An Update

Written by on November 21, 2012 in Updates - 3 Comments

We’ll keep it short. We know many have been anticipating the release of Trapeez and it has taken some time to get things of the ground (including sending out beta invites). With that, there is some news we need to deliver, both good and bad.

The bad news

Unforunately, we have to halt development on Trapeez for BlackBerry 7. It is mostly complete but we’re not happy with the compromises our customers would have to make with the application in its current state.

The good news

By taking these actions, we expedite the launch of Trapeez for the BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry 10. Also, this would also allow us to focus on our BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry PlayBook applications (both new and old).

We know this news may not sit well with some of you but it is a difficult choice we had to make.

Thanks for listening!

Test Lab for Developers

Written by on May 22, 2012 in Intro - No comments

For those who attended my session at the BlackBerry 10 Jam conference, I promised something that quite a few developers were interested in:

Test Lab for Developers

We solely use this service as a means of distribution of our betas and decided to polish it, secure it and share it with those who may want to give it a try.

Developers on the BlackBerry® platform will soon have the service needed to provide controlled beta testing without needing to deal with all the time-consuming like generating license keys, compiling feedback or managing  . With Test Lab, this is all done for you.


  • Easy-to-use and secure checks over 256-bit SSL
  • Controlled betas tied to unique hardware identifier
  • Timely build notifications to testers
  • Feedback delivered right within the tester’s portal
  • No need to force beta testers to swap out debug tokens
