When using JiveTalk I would really like to have a new message notification on the top ribbon of the screen, much like BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook, etc. When I emailed BeeJive to ask about this, they told me this is not possible as RIM has not released the API's to access the top ribbon.
My questions are these: 1) Has anyone else asked about this? 2) Would it be worthwhile to email RIM and ask that they mend their ways? Because I don't get a notification on the top ribbon, I sometimes miss messages or respond to them late.
1) Yes it has been asked, I read it hear.
2) Feel free.
You didn't ask, but I use the pop-up notification of an message, I don't miss them. A ribbon bar icon would be nice, though.
Thanks. I don't particularly care for the pop-up window, but I appreciate the suggestion. If I used a sound notification I could simply make it a unique tone, but I have to keep it on Vibrate most of the day. Ah well - I'll see what RIM has to say. For the billionth and first time.
