I’ve finally reached the point where I’m ready to discontinue support for BB10 in my various app development efforts. Specifically those projects are Goober for BB10 (a native client for pnut.io) and Renamed Todo (a task list app using todo.txt format). I hope they’ve been useful for the handful of users I’ve had and interacted with over the years, I know I’ve enjoyed building them. But the time has come to retire them and allow myself to focus on other platforms.
I’m starting to think more about my mobile app development efforts after BB10 is no longer supportable. It still has life left in it but now that BlackBerry is starting to turn services off it may not be for much longer. I’ve dabbled off and on with Android development and do have an app for pnut.io that I’m actively working on. But Android as a platform isn’t my favorite and developing for it isn’t as fun given it’s Java roots.
It’s been a long while since my last update. I haven’t been paying much attention to this app over the last couple of years for various different reasons. Mostly do to having switched my primary phone from the lovely BlackBerry Passport to an Android based BlackBerry phone. But I still love BlackBerry 10 and I still love this app so I’ve finally pulled the trigger and made it open source. It’s now available under the Apache 2.
A change was introduced with the release of BlackBerry 10.3.3 that breaks authentication between Renamed Todo and Dropbox. I’ll be reworking (again) the authorization process to work properly with this latest update. I’ll post again when the update is available here on this blog as well as my social feeds. Links to follow me are in the sidebar.
An update is now available for all BlackBerry 10 devices in BlackBerry World which adds support for Dropbox API v2. There are no visible changes to this release, just behind the scenes work in preparation for the Dropbox deprecating their API v1. This will allow Renamed Todo to continue to function for the foreseeable future.
