If we're using a device that currently doesn't have 4.5 OS available, will the new beta still work if we download it?

Thank you for sharing. Your product seems to be holding well with the 4.5 upgrades.

The beta will work on all OS versions, but certain functionality is dependent on the particular OS version. For example, HTML email is only supported if you have BB OS 4.5 or higher.

The only things missing in PD are bluetooth and BB message indicators on the PD screen. It has virtually everything else. Will these be added in the future? Thx

Another thing I'd like to see is the weather and clock fonts be user-selectable.

I'm hoping for a Profile indicator to show the current profile (not a profile changer/switcher, just an indicator; e.g. N, V, Q, etc.).

Good catch, I think I mentioned this while ago... But yep this would make PD one of the most complete apps on the BB...

All,

BB Messenger, profile indicator, voicemail and bluetooth are things that RIM does not currently expose to 3rd party developers. If/when they add these, PocketDay will support them.

Weather / Clock fonts we are working on.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

I use Viigo but am interested in what PD does with its RSS feeds on this next build

Guess there were some issues? maybe next week now?
