Lightbulb Announcing BerrySearch 1.0

Please Login to Remove!

BerrySearch v1.0 is now available for free over-the-air download by pointing your phone at http://thebogles.com/berrysearch.jad

This version adds IMDb autocomplete and search to the Google, Wikipedia, News, Images, and Techorati Searches of previous versions.

Other additions:

- Shortcut key sequences allow you to quickly change the search type: “g:” for Google, “i:” for IMDb, “d:” for dictionary, and so forth.

- The “Edit Settings” menu item allows you change the network connection type to BES (if your company has a BES) or Direct (for using your carrier’s APN, which you should configure as described here: BlackBerry Internet - MSN/chat/web/telnet/TCPIP - No BES!

I would appreciate input from users on the following question: is it better for BerrySearch to exist as a separate application from Berry411, or should Berry411 be a swiss army knife that does everything?

(Much of the context specific autocomplete in BerrySearch is now supported in Berry411 as well, in a slightly more complex form. For example if you begin a search in Berry411 with “g:” for Google or “imdb:”, the appropriate style of autocomplete is used.)

Phil,

Thanks for the update. FYI the about/upgrades in Berrysearch .91 still told me I was using the latest version.

I voted on your site and indicated I would like the apps to stay separate. I think it keeps them cleaner and more intuitive.

So Berry411 already does everything Berry Search does?

Default It broke!

I was getting this error before, and it's still happening after the upgrade to 1.0. This occurs when I try to do a search from berrysearch.

"HTTP Error 400: Bad Request - The server could not understand the page request, or was unable to process it for some reason. Please try loading a different page."

If I take the "details" option in this dialog, I see "SocketException: Connection reset".

I've been into the new settings screen, and tried all three connection options.

Another interesting datapoint: I get the same error in the blackberry browser when I try to visit any page...until I close and reopen the browser. Then the browser works fine again, until I try another berrysearch.

I think this symptom started when I upgraded to the latest RIM OS from T-Mobile (4.1.0.346, 8700G). I've tried resending service books from the T-Mobile self service page, no help there.

I was hooked on BerrySearch until this started happening, and I miss it terribly. Any suggestions?

Check your browser network settings (Options : Advanced Options : Browser) and update your Default and MDS Browser configuration.

I have Berrysearch 1.0 and Berry411 3.87 on a Telus Mobility 7130e and have not seen autocomplete work in a long time - until I went to San Diego this past week and had it start working! So yeah, it isn't working properly on Telus.

Ack! What a relief! As I'm sure you know, it wasn't just your app...Gmail had the same problem. All better now. Thank you for this indispensible tool.
