Default Aftermarket Software Optimized for 9000?

Please Login to Remove!

With the Bold the only BB with a HVGA screen, and the first with OS4.6 support, what aftermarket software has been optimized to work with it?

I've noticed most software that checks what device you have reports that it's not compatible with the device as yet.

I'm partial to freeware, but interested to know what else is ready for the Bold.

Not much to be honest...

The Facebook app looks great... Viigo is good to go with a new icon... DataVault - JiveTalk or BeeJive... both look good too - - - WeatherEye and the ESPN logo are also solid -

Are developers including icons specific to the Bold that keep with the default theme, or are the icons "traditional" ones?

Well Viigo Tango has a new icon for Bold. Windows Live integrates well. Facebook has a new icon.

So we are on the same sheet of music, Viigo Tango has an icon that matches the new Bold theme? Nice. Facebook as well?

Ohh fun! There's nothing like having a beautiful theme, all the icons in a certain color and BOOM... Facebook is blue and stands out like a Giraffe in the middle of a pack of Zebras. lol.

That's exactly why I am asking... with such a fantastic theme (icon design), I would hope that developers could make their applications icons match this theme.

Yes, facebook matches the theme provided you do a fresh install and not a "restore".
