I am looking to do something similar to ESPN for my client. I have developed some mobile friendly content and would like to provide an icon that can be loaded to the BB. When the user clicks on it, I want it to link to the mobile site. It gives the look of it being an application but really is a linked icon. As I mentioned ESPN does this. Any thoughts? I may add that 1) I know as a BB user I can add an icon and link it myself, however, I want the users to be able to download this. 2) This orginazation is member based and their devices vary in type and provider. So doing this through an enterprise solution is/may not be an option. Does this make sense?
It's a Java application that just launches the browser (default or specific, the code is different) to open the URL. There are several knowledge base articles on this. The application uses the Invoke API to launch the browser. If you don't want to use the default browser, then the application will need to search the service books to locate the one you want then launch the URL. This is all shown in the knowledge base articles.
Forgive me for asking what will probably be a very dumb question but I am a complete BB noob. The original post in this thread makes it sound easy for a user to add an icon for a browser link but, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to do it. I would appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.
