Re: swannview for the z10

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Apps for BB have always required porting to each specific device model number and major OS level combination...this is no different for BB10, and indeed even more challenging. From what I understand, since BB10 is a totally new and different OS from legacy, the developers have to totally re-write their app for it...simple porting from a prior version doesn't work.

 

In any event, it's the developers choice as to which model number/OS level combinations they will support...some choose to support only a subset. From what I see on AppWorld for this app, it appears that this developer has not yet chosen to write their app for BB10.

 

If you desire to put pressure toward getting it written for BB10, the best place for you to do that would be the developer...it's their choice to make. You can find their contact information on the AppWorld catalog page for the app:

Good luck!
