Default OS6 Applications

Please Login to Remove!

What are the chances all the available (more popular) applications that are currently being used on the 5.0 OS phones will be available for the new OS6 platform on the 9800? I believe it was the BGR video that stated not even the Google package of applications was ready for OS6... Anyone have input or newer inside knowledge? Thanks.

It is supposed to be backward compatable with os5 apps. Only time will tell how true that is

RSA for Blackberry does not work. It will load to the device and allow you to import your token. When you enter your pin and say get passcode it will not display a passcode, but instead displays a plain white screen.

Chances are "hit and miss".

Pandora...their site won't let you install their app at all. It knows you are on OS 6 and displays a message about not supporting your device

Evernote...works but the first time I logged in the authentication hourglass hung. Rebooted and went right in but searching or selecting items hangs on *Loading*

RSA Soft token...Installs and imports token but does nothing after entering your pin

viigo...Installs but you have to choose a device type and OS. Neither the 9800 or OS 6 are choices. I chose the Storm 2 on OS 5. It works for the most part but some items won't load and others load with a huge font. Have to pinch and zoom to read. Maybe another device/OS type works better?

Google search and maps seems to be working normally but when I pinch/zoom it just moves the map around.

ColorID seems to work but once you enter a name and info you really don't interact with it. But the LED does what it's supposed to do when the filters work.

Epocrates works. That was a main concern for me because I use it at work daily.
