Blackberry version of Lotusphere Sessions DB Now Available

Gabriella Davis  17 December 2008 13:51:15
We are very pleased again this year to link up with Ben's Lotusphere sessions db and produce a Blackberry version which is installable OTA.  The sessions db is missing some data right now as times are still be finalised for some sessions and the product showcase stands aren't published, but once installed you can do "Load Data' from the app main menu anytime to get an update directly from the sessions db itself.

This year alongside the ability to add sessions to your Calendar on the BB, we have included Ben's 'Feedback' form allowing you to post questions and comments in response to a session.

To download simply browse on your Blackberry to http://lotusphere.turtleweb.com/bb and install.

For those of you wanting an offline iPhone application that isn't browser based - we have produced one that also links to Ben's session db.  Unfortunately to distribute it to you it first has to make its way through Apple approval to the app store.  More news on that here soon.

And if it doesnt get through Apple fast enough, maybe you could put it on Cydia (for those of us who are jailbroken)?

When I click on Download, it tries to download for a bit and then fails with the message "907 Invalid COD". Can you tell me what that means and what do I do to get past it?

Thanks

I'm having the same message as Vince."907 Invalid COD". Can you tell me what that means and what do I do to get past it?

For the people getting "907 invalid COD" this is probably due to older versions of the OS on your devices. We have tested with Pearl, 8300, 8800 and Bold but all with fairly new OS versions.

If you can let me know which version you are using on your devices we may be able to recompile for the older OS and put it on another URL for you.

For those waiting for the iPhone version - it's with Apple and the app store awaiting approval (still) - hopefully it will be approved very soon.

@Devin - your OS is older than that compiled version - we have a 'special' one for you .. go to

{ Link } instead

Just so everybody understands what a truly hoopy frood you are:

1:47:47 PM: Gabriella Davis: hi Devin... try { Link }

1:48:03 PM: Devin Olson: wow. personal service!

1:48:10 PM: Devin Olson: trying now...

1:50:20 PM: Devin Olson: loading data now.

1:50:31 PM: Gabriella Davis: lol

1:50:32 PM: Devin Olson: I owe you a drink at Kimono's (or ESPN)

Thanks again. You rock!

So, does the rest of us that have older blackberry's get a different link than Devin.......

15Gab Davis  10/01/2009 11:26:39  Blackberry version of Lotusphere Sessions DB Now Available

Yes sorry, see my more recent blog.

For older BBs use { Link }

even older than OS 4.1 we can't help you I'm afraid since we can't compile older than that.

Thanks for the app Gab ! See you at Lotusphere.

Gab: app worked for a few days, but lately it's been downloading the data and then never doing anything with it. I try doing a search, and it demands I download the data again, and then (again) it takes a couple minutes to download and then seemingly throws it away, demanding I... download yet again.

I'm deleting the app and reinstalling, see if that fixes anything. This is on an 8800 with 4.5 software.
