BBTetris 4.1 Released: Overall Game Improvements and Bug Fixes

bbtetris Last time we mentioned the free BBTetris game, it was sitting pretty at version 3. Since then, Papped has been working hard on improving the smaller things about the game like battery usage and other code improvements. Nothing crazy new, but the game now supports the 81XX, 83XX, 8900 and 9000 Bold devices. Keep up the good work, Papped!

You can pick up the latest version on the product page or by using our mirror OTA.

-Changed pause screen.
