Built by the same folks who made the Sochi app, hopefully they'll be doing a lot of the event apps for BlackBerry 10 cause they're really nice.

MrGlenn

They seem to use a similar layout for both apps. So if they just use that template for future events, I think we can look forward to some more! ;)

(Also, what is wrong with the forum, I am starting to show signs of withdrawal again...)

Yeah,they seem to have the events Niche pretty down pat.They have maps for how to get to where you want to go ,very well thought out,I wonder if, when something new comes along they will send me a Notification.That would be a good idea.I mean other events as they acquire the rights.

Yup. They're nice.

How are they able to make the action bar a different color?? I thought cascades was incapable of doing that.

Yeah the skinned Cascades UI was first thing I noticed when I saw the screenshots in BB World yesterday.

I was trying to remember if we've seen that on any other apps. I thought there was one other, but I can't recall what.

It's the Sochi app for the winter Olympics. As Bla1ze mentioned, it's the same dev for both these apps. Wonder how they got the tools to do this. Some people in the forums have mentioned that the dev is probably using custom controls. But wow, it's gorgeous. Hope more apps can do this.

agree ,Sochi app is great,I am wondering if I can view a trailer or even a movie for a price,that wouldn't be so bad,but then again if they did that I wouldn't go see the movie in a theater

Another not available for this device.

Posted on my BlackBerry Q10, because I'm so Bloody Special.

Their target audience is clearly not BB business professionals. The iphone folks are more of the sundance varietal. Glad to see them support the platform nonetheless.

This forum is usually full of game reviews... I'm thankful for the break.

Once again, this app is not available for *all* BB10 phones. It seems you must be running 10.2 to use it. As I have asked in comments on previous reviews, please include the OS requirements in your reviews. Thank you again.

I take it you don't like leaks for some reason...

Nothing to do with what I like. There are MANY of us (from what I read, mostly in the US) who are still using 10.1 for various reasons (employer policy, purchase/contract agreement, and others), until an official update is made available by the carriers. There are probably many more out there who don't read CB forums, and who have no idea leaks even exist. Knowing what the OS software requirements are for any app is as important as knowing which device models support it, just like any computer software.

I was so excited to see this but I guess need 10.2. Since a lot of people can't or don't know how to do leaks, and U.S. Carriers haven't released 10.2, I guess downloads will be few. Too bad. Would be so handy at the festival.

Just got one question. The p9982 is exactly the same phone as the z10. Why is it even possible that this phones I slept out with apps???
