Good news for you BlackBerry Curve 9320 and 9310 owners - you can now take advantage of the great features that Wikitude has to offer for BlackBerry smartphones.

Wikitude gets updated to version 7.1.2 bringing support for the BlackBerry Curve 9320 and 9310


While this app is a "cool" thing to have, I found it drains the battery faster than using it for anything productive. Ever since this came out on Bold 99xx, I only have used it for 4 times to find buildings and hotels in Calgary and Vancouver.

One more thing, the calibration of the Bold 9900 compass is annoying. Am I the only one here find it pain the **&**t to calibrate every few mins?

your not the only one if i didnt have to calibrate it so heavily on my 9900 i probably would have more use for this app. With all the calibrations it annoys me so much i rarely use the app, it has such great potential too.

The shockingly poor calibration and battery eating capabilities were the very reasons I deleted the app. I've used it on Android (you have to be aware of the competition) and much as it pains me to say it, it was lots better. I haven't tried it on iOS (if they have it), so I can't comment on that. But while we seem to be getting let down by some devs, at least they're trying to get it right for BB. Let's hope that when BB10 launches and we go back to the top, better support will follow.

Rather bizarre this just last week I received an email from the bodies at Wikitude telling me they have no plans for 9320.

And now here it is.

Can anyone get wikitude to work it's AR thru the camera on a Curve 9370? I can't figure it out and I upgraded to this version a couple nights ago. I'm thinking this device doesnt have a compass built in, but they do show it working on a 9370 on the BB site. Who can help?

If your BlackBerry doesn't have a built in magnetometer/compass, the camera thing simply isn't going to be available to you. You're just going to be stuck with the map view. Sorry, bud...
