HootSuite BlackBerry App Bug Fix Beta Releases

HootSuite BlackBerryI tried out HootSuite when it launched last week and I found the experience undesirable. It seems like the developers were new to the BlackBerry platform since the app was laggy and overall it was unusable. David pointed out to me that HootSuite has released 3 new bug fix releases since its public beta launch that fix many of the issues I experienced.

If you have been running into these issues I recommend updating at hootsuite.com/blackberry.

Here is the change log:

  • Version 0.3.07:
    • Invalid username/password errors
    • Avatars loading and caching issues
    • System resources drain when running in background
  • Version 0.3.09:
    • Avatar loading and threading
      • less CPU power consumption
      • better threading
      • increased UI responsiveness
      • running app in background results in less OS churn/usage
      • minor issues with blank avatars
    • Network code changes
      • BIS and WIFI are enabled and prioritized by default – Both can be disabled within the settings menu for faster network operation amongst users whose carriers properly set their APN settings already (MDS, direct connection, etc)
    • “Manage Accounts” screen
      • Users can exit the app without getting “trapped” if no accounts were added to the device previously (mainly an issue post-signup)
  • Version 0.3.11:
    • International characters fixed – Non-roman characters e.g. Thai, Japanese, Korean, Chinese now work from the compose screen
    • Font adjustments – Some font size tweaks to increase readability in various places
    • Facebook permission corrections – no more temporary access problems after adding Facebook accounts
