Bridge does not work for app connections?

[ Edited ]

I was traveling this weekend after receiving my PlayBook on Thursday.  I tried to use my sister's BlackBerry phone inbetween airports and hotels to try and connect to the internet using BlackBerry Bridge.  What I found was, the bridge worked fine to get the messages from the phone, but trying to browse the web requried starting the Bridge Browser, which was extermely slow and pretty much useless.  Also, any application that required interenet access, wouldn't work.  I tried the simple weather app.

 

So, is this the case?  The bridge won't work with apps to let them connect to the interent?  Or could it just have been the particular connection I had?

Yes I believe this is the case.

Re: Bridge does not work for app connections?

Thanks, that did clear things up.

 

It also answer another question I had about creatinga  corporate application.  It looks like the Bridge is not there yet, but will be in the future.
