Recently, I just started using a Mac and it was recommended that I use CloudApp. It’s a great application that allows you share screenshots, bookmarks and more, quickly and efficiently. What I found is that there is no app that allows me to access this data on my BlackBerry PlayBook. That’s where Cloudee comes in! Read more…

Update: Blaq for BlackBerry PlayBook issues

Written by on October 15, 2011 in Updates - 5 Comments


We’re sorry 🙁

We’ve been receiving reports of users being prompted to enter a username and password to “”. We’re still investigating the issue but that doesn’t mean you should suffer as a result. We’ve decided to submit version 1.5.5 to BlackBerry App World to work around the issue until it is fixed.

In some instances, you may not receive real-time updates because the issue has not resolved itself on Twitter’s end. With that said, the application will refresh automatically, every 5 minutes or if you press the refresh icon manually.

Here are some fixes that will come with v1.5.5:

FIXED: User is prompted to login to
FIXED: Followers, following and tweets rendering incorrectly
FIXED: Application renders incorrectly in portrait mode. An application restart is required to render properly.
FIXED: Tweet card doesn't always display FIXED: Toolbar icons shift when flipping device upside down.
FIXED: Timelines are scrollable when options menu is showing

Thanks for your patience and support!
