Engadget App For BlackBerry Now Available

Other then waking up every morning (afternoon?) and hitting CrackBerry looking for my BlackBerry news I always enjoy checking out other technology based sites to see what is going on. One of those sites is of course Engadget, which always has a wide array of information be it the latest laptop, the hottest new TV, camera or whatever else you can imagine that revolves around technology.

Following up their iPhone and webOS launch of the Engadget mobile app, Engadget readers can now download the BlackBerry application as well to stay up to date on all things tech. The application itself allows access to all the Engadget sites be it the base site, Engadget mobile or even Engadget HD. If you have been looking for a better way to keep up to date on all things tech, you'll want to give it a look. Be sure to check compatability requirements before you download as Storm devices are not currently supported and OS 5.0 users may notice minor glitches.

how does a new app come out and not support the storm which is a newer phone

Cliffford

My guess is they have been working on this app since before my phone and your phone came out. But your phone is an entirely new design for rim and it functions differently. Use your brain and realize that you touchscreen losers may as well be teenagers with iphones.

hey Clifford- are you the big red dog, or the blowhard "know it all" from Cheers? Name calling wasn't necessary Clifford; Also, the storm one has been out over a year Clifford (in fact almost 14 months now)with not 1 but 2 software platform updates. Also I am not sure how long they have been working on it- it shouldn't matter Clifford. And do YOU know Clifford to a 100% certainty how long they have been working on it? Yeah, Clifford, I didn't think so. And notice Clifford, that i didn't feel the need to call you any names, Clifford.

Ha!..

I can type faster on a iPhone and do my work faster.

Go figure...

well done, Engadget ..

That is so retarded!! They don't support the Storm/Storm2!! I've followed Engadget for years and I am severely disappointed!! Lame!!

Did anyone manage to get it working on a 5.0.0.411 Bold (9000)?

Great site to kill some time! I sent the download link to my email but after half hour, I haven't received it. Odd...

Engaget, Why ???

This is a non sense.

Well I'm going back to Viigo then :)

every1 that says fail is lame

i like how the app for a website that reports the latest in technology isn't designed for the latest version of our OS or some of the latest phones from blackberry (storm1/2, bold...)

The Gift

By the way, storm users, if you are keen to check it out, go ahead because I downloaded the bold version on my storm2 just fine... You won't get fullscreen and the controls are a little fiddly but at least you get the chance to try it out.

Works just fine on my Bold 9700

No OS 5. No Storm 2. Guess I'm out on two counts.
Guess I'll catch you on the flipside, Engadget.

fatbbsman

the app installed just fine and I did the reboot. then, the battery started heating up like crazy and i lost 3 bars in an hour. uninstalled it and i was fine again. i am on rogers canada on 4.6.1.250 official. just puttin it out there

Cliffford

Works wonderfully on my 9700, good job.

What more do you expect from Engadget??
I use to follow them religiously, but there reporting has becoming very biased and narrow.
They are a joke now!

Did not work for me. Got stuck loading for +/- 5mins. Got curve 8320 w/os 4.5

bronco_fan

It works fine on my phone, although I noticed a small problem when scrolling up/down for articles that it highlights more than one when you want to make a selection. There is a warning that there are a couple bugs in the application for people with an OS of 5.0+.

Flawson

I've got an 8330 from sprint, I would MUCH rather have an official os 5 upgrade than to be able to run this app... Just sayin'

pkcable

Come in folks its their first shot at an app give them a break. 5.0 full support coming soon and they probably are working on a touch version.

jlb21

Is this an actual app or just a launcher? If it is an app, how different is it from just going to the Mobile Endgadget site? That always seems to be fine for me........

The Gift

I downloaded it on my storm 2. But regardless of the fact the storm is not yet supported...I still think the mobile site looks better.
