doesnt work

koolaidWTF 06-07-2009 01:20 PM on Bold and 8900 doesn't work either I don't think.

I don't think it's a 5.0.0.X version problem. It's that the program uses API's that have changed even the ever slightest. Those apps that are TIED into the OS (such as AIM, MSN, all those instant messaging apps, and FB included) have to be updated to work with that OS. It's possible that the 1.6 will work, but FB and RIM will have to work together to include the code to work with both operating systems in one... It's a shame. I want to come out already! I want it :$.

BB8900awesome 06-07-2009 09:20 PM

Actually i think the issue is OS 5.0 personally... Because i think RIM is smart enough to make the FB code to work with a new OS that is around the corner of being released. So i think there is an issue with the code in the new OS preventing it to work correctly

Very few apps work with OS 5.0. Thats why it is beta software.

Probably because some of the code and API's like people mention before has changed, so it's totally changed how the programs would work in 5.0 versus the current 4.5/4.6/4.7 Os's

Have to think too that if BES 5.0 is different, then they're gonna have to change the OS to match that, while keeping it working with everything else.

Blaming OS is pointless, as (I assume) none of us have any insight of the actual intentions with their APIs. If they want to change how some methods act, it's completely up to them, and those changes might be even fully justified - e.g. they add a required parameter to a method or a class constructor to boost security.

Saying they should add a workaround for older application is often a matter of philosophy, not of a simple bugfixing (not that bugfixing would be simple in the first place). Yes, they can do it, and end up like Windows - having to support APIs from 15 years back in their latest system to avoid annoying users. The cost? Complexity and size of the software. Backward compatibility incurs additional costs on testing, documentation and support. Wanting to target multiple devices with 5.0, they also need to keep size and performance in mind. Etc.

cherk543 07-15-2009 07:33 AM

Midnight, I did read the thread... Why dont you read my message again? Does SocialScope work with OS 5.0? It has a FB reader??

MidnightDraven 07-15-2009 08:35 AM

but the way you wrote that sounds like

does socialscope work with os 5?
does facebook work too?

i know nothing about social scope so had no idea it did facebook things.

morfy50 07-18-2009 08:05 AM

The only thing available for 5.0 right now is Snaptu - A Different Mobile Web. It's free, so you can try it. I did, but just didn't like it that much; however, it does provide a lot of Facebook and Twitter functions.

SocialScope is a closed beta. Has been for a long, long time.

christopher 07-20-2009 11:04 AM

SocialScope is working on 5.0 !

Unfortunately , its a closed beta. So useless to anyone without an invite.

jfdoyle 10-27-2009 09:00 PM

I can't get socialscope to work on 5.0 but emailed them and will post back response.

CoDudette 10-28-2009 04:38 AM

fb works now on 5.0.. from what i've read now most 3rd party apps are working on 5.0..especially the newer beta's (Bold: .238 & .314)

distro1 10-28-2009 09:58 AM

Why would you even want to use FB version 1.6 when you could be using which works GREAT?
