Blackberry App

Hi to All,

this thread is for the New Blackberry App that I have been creating.

Here is the current status:

1. WIFI & 3G (TCP) - If wifi is available it will use this connection, else it will use 3G.
2. Streaming works
3. Checks to see if stream is live or not
4. Feedback works
5. Events - will list the events. current issues: Wrong order
6. Archive - Will list the last 10 show, however not able to do anything with it at this moment. More to come.

The Design is not very "pleasing" to the eye at the moment as I have been working on functionality. Its basically a green background with black text on it.

Todo / Plans:

1. Graphics - make it more pleasing with better colors / icons
2. Make you able to add events to your blackberry calendar
3. Let you download and play or stream and play past shows
4. Live push information - like show alerts
5. Let you choose in options to use wifi / 3g or both
6. Have the app recalculate the event time/date to users local timezone.

Current Issues:

1. Might crash if you press the play / stop buttons to quick / many times.
2. Current events backwards
3. Only shows last 10 shows in Archive
4. Feedback does not save your name / location (quick fix)

So my question is this:

A. Do you prefer that I focus on main functions as streaming / feedback / options which should be kind of quick fix, and publish a alpha test version.


B. Do you prefer that I focus on adding more functions and leaving some of the bugs in the upcoming alpha release. This might take a few more weeks before testing.

Please use poll- to answer the questions. I will close the poll on friday afternoon CET time (Morning NY /KATG time).

Even if it was perfect, it would probably make my Blackberry stop receiving email and text messages and make me rebuild it.

The damn thing is just not that stable!

I say, get it right. Bad would be VERY bad. Good will only be bad.
