The best BlackBerry 10 app keeps on getting better! You can now download CB10 v1.2 from BlackBerry World (learn how).

As promised, v1.2 adds support for commenting on articles. We wanted to build support for article comments into the first version of the app, but the old CrackBerry website didn't have support for our commenting api. With the new CrackBerry website now here, so is support for comments. CB10 app users have already discovered the feature even before we could get this post blogged up - scroll through the comments to our recent articles and you'll find no shortage of Posted via CB10 signatures. 

Beyond article commenting, we've rolled out a number of other features (including forum search) and fixed a number of bugs. Hit up the gallery above for a visual walk through and keep reading for the full change log.
