hojarojaFinally, our two flagship apps are available for Blackberry! Here are the URLs at which you can download them (beta1):

J1CK wikipedia client: http://wikipedia.j1ck.com/bb/

It will work on all Blackberries with OS 4.3 and above. We have tested all known form factors: the old model with the side-wheel, the modern ones with the thumbtrack, Pearl models with a half-QWERTY keyboard, and the touch-screen bold models.

We’ve been able to implement a good connectivity solution (what a nightmare this is on Blackberry!). On one hand, RIM finally gave us BIS-B approval last Friday — so these apps will go through RIM’s network (and be included in your regular BB browsing plan, so it could be free of any extra cost to you). On the other hand, we finally got our act together and added a quite powerful connectivity settings menu. By default, things are set to Auto, which defaults to the following connection methods tried: WiFi, BIS-B, BES, WAP, TCP/IP. These are tried in order, and the first that works is used. You can override these options and force a single connection method if you prefer.

This is Beta 1, it should work fine in most cases (as it’s based on all our previous work, and we’ve tested it a lot internally and in closed beta), but I’m sure there will be a lot of glitches. Please send us your feedback, and we will be happy to address the issues for the 1.0 release due very soon!
