I tried the Gas Prices search and I typed in my zip code 77077. It returned Corpus Christi,TX results.

Sorry about that - We depend on data from the source web sites, and have no way of knowing whether a zip is supported.

Could you try again? I just checked and I get the following for 77077 - is this more like it? (How to update: When you see the search results on the screen, select the Menu option "Update" and that will force a refetch of data)

There is another Gas Finder gadget based on MSN that also works for that zip code. You could try that one too.

Pretty good start. Works fine on my 7290. I wish the bb shortcuts were available, like the space bar to scroll a page, using the shift+scroll wheel to move down a row of icons instead of just scrolling through each row and short cut keys for next, prevevious, read more, save page and back.

Why are some icons unremovable, like the starbucks? Thanks.

I agree. Installed it with no problem. Added some gadgets. All in all a good program. Once it matures, and more content is available I may reload it ...

I think this ones a keeper. A few more additions and it may be my new favorite time waster on the BB.

Anyone else having problems keeping this running in the background? It seems to shut down spontaneously sometimes giving an uncaught exception error, but usually with no indication.

it seems to be working really well on my 7290. Does anyone know if its possible to load personal websites? or do you have to pick from the pre-loaded categories?

I keep getting the following error: "Oops! Connection dropped. Please try again later./ java.io.IOException: could not open tunnel-failed." on my BlackBerry 7105t.

I was previously able to connect, then deleted the app. Decided to give it another try and get the above after 5 attempts by the program to connect.

I am also confused as to where to enter the password that is sent with the link to download the app. It says keep it and enter it the first time I run plusmo, but where do I enter this??

Doesn't work on my Verizon 7250. Keeps telling me either "Oops! Not enough memory on your device" even though I have a few megs free, or "You need a new version.", but there's no new version on the WAP site.

Gave up for now, will try again in the future.
