Following the re-launch of our CrackBerry website, the CB10 app was updated to v1.2 which brought with it a number of new features, including the ability to comment on articles.
Version 1.3 is a minor maintenance release, which addresses some bugs that popped up in the last update. The performance of v1.3 is buttery smooth once again, so you'll want to download the update from BlackBerry World asap. You'll also notice we've updated our BlackBerry World listing to include an overview of the permissions required by the app and how we use them.
As for new features in this version, support for landscape orientation is now present. I love using the app in portrait orientation, but this was a feature many of you requested so we put it in there!
