BlackBerry 10 Compass and Calculator apps updated in BlackBerry World

To go along with the update of BlackBerry World, two of the BlackBerry 10 core apps are being updated right now as well. The BlackBerry 10 Calculator and Compass apps are showing new versions available. Both simply just list bug fixes and stability improvements as the changes. It should be noted though that these updates don't seem to be appearing on official OS releases for everyone as of yet. 

They seem to be only appearing on devices running a leaked OS such as the early version of 10.2.1.1925  but that's not really confirmed, just appears that way and while some folks are getting them downloaded others are getting errors while trying to download. If you see them available, go ahead and update. If not, they'll almost certainly come with the 10.2.1 update once that is fully released.

Could they be doing this to see how many people are running leaks?

I don't think they need to do this. I'm pretty sure they can tell through other means. Sort of like how a web browser does whenever you access a website, I'm pretty sure your device calls back to BB to update time/date, check for OS updates, etc.

jordandrews90

Yeah probably right

Yes, since any BES can show, and make reports, of OS Versions in use, I'm sure the company that designed all this can tell exactly what is in use.

I hope this is a sign from BBRY that they can update the core apps very easily and not need to wait for a full OS update to do so. They need to use this capability much more often. I would love a killer media player with massive TAT influence.

I would also love that!

I would also love more TAT in just about everything

Both of those updates are like from December, weird you're only seeing them now.

After installing the BlackBerry World update, both apps showed up with updates available (so did Evernote), and I'm running stock 10.2.0.1803.

I think it is a good sign that they are starting to update core apps through BlackBerry World. If they can get more of the apps updated that way, then we won't have to worry as much about waiting on carrier OS updates.

I think it is related to the carrier and the phone model with possibly the type of OS running. Carriers could be pushing out the updates for 10.2.1.X late tonight, early tomorrow.

sklotz2000

Although this update rolled out in December, for the heck of it I updated anyway. My Compass is still broken and has been since installing 10.2.1.1055 and 10.2.1.1925. I have this same issue on 2 different Z10's. The compass needle jumps around and "sometimes" finds North. WTH?!?

Am I the only one experiencing this issue?

misterabrasive

No you are not the only one. My compass Is 180 degrees off, sometimes. The rest of the time it's just wrong. Has been for a while. I thought the Verizon Official 10.2.1 would fix it. Wrong. Good thing I'm not out in the middle of nowhere!

Updates showed up when I checked the 'My Apps & Games' section of BlackBerry World.

Hoping update to 10.2.1 becomes available very soon.
