Not showing up in my App World, and when I downloaded it from m.xobni.com I got the "error starting module" message

I was able to download, just open Xobni and go to about and it will prompt you to download the newest version.

What device/OS? I tried it on Bold 9650 running Finally got it on App World, but still got the same error (have randomly gotten the module error after downloading several other apps)

Dear bcryberg,

We'd love to hear more about the module error you are seeing (error number, screenshot,etc.)

Also, I don't believe OS 6.x on 9650 has been officially released by RIM, so might be an issue on that release.

If you have the specific error, or steps to reproduce, let our support team know at mobilesupport@xobni.com.

In general though, indeed directly downloading from http://bb.xobni.com/ should work.

Thanks for Trying us though!

Hhhhmmmm...since the update all of my contacts in my address book that have an "'" in their last name, the "'" and the portion of their name after the "'" is removed in the Xobni contact list. Same for my Dr.'s...all I am getting is their last name in my Xobni contact list and the portion of their name associated with the "." is gone. It no longer appears to be recognizing non-alpha characters :-(.
