I know that RIM is licensing their BlackBerry Travel app using WorldMate’s tech but even so RIM rarely releases updates this close to each other. That is unless there is some critical bug that needed squashing. Nikolaus let us know that RIM has updated BlackBerry Travel to v1.0.350.99 which is only slightly newer than the v1.0.341.99 released on the 23rd. In typical RIM fashion there is no changelog to help us decide if the 3MB download is worth it, but we sort of found an update in BetaZone change log that seems kind of helpful:
- Added Bold 9000 support.
Fixed issue of disappearing itineraries.
Resolved device freezing (white screen) on launch of application.
Fixed settings reset after battery pull:
Caused TripCatch to turn off.
Caused users to lose their home city until next sync.
Updated the splat mechanism to fix various bugs.
Added Hotel promotions in hotels results screen.
General push framework fixes.
Fixed airport selection on new flight.
New UI control in weather card.
UI fixes for LinkedIn screen.
Various small UI changes and fixes ? All screens.
Improved swipe behavior for home screen cards.
Added ?All cities? option:
Will show multiple weather displays (one per each city).
Will show all LinkedIn connections per trip.
Yelp links will go to Yelp search screen (instead of results), with the selected category pre-populated as well as the first city.
Added sort menu items in Yelp screen.
Added empty images to LinkedIn field like in LinkedIn card.
Added state to airport name in auto complete field.
Currency screen: Corrected concurrency issues and added ‘Update Rates’ option in menu.
Implemented key press: ‘T’ & ‘B’ scrolls to Top and Bottom accordingly.
Added timer for ensuring GPS deactivation.
Fixed XML encoding in BlackBerry Maps.
Fixed calendar sync.
PS: I am sure we will make Mike Lazaridis cry by the possibly wasted 3MB upgrade data usage.
