Default text

I have a question about the text displayed in the browser version of BB Wold: Is that the "default" text?

We have an application with multiple platforms (java, bb10), and it would be nice to have a different text displayed in the device BB Worlds and the browser one.


In addition it seems the browser version does not display any formatting, we have normal linebreaks. It is displayed correctly on the devices.

Do we need to use special formatting for the browser version, like <br> etc?

Re: Default text

Re line breaks: it is a known issues, hopefully it will be fixed soon



Re default text: in vendor portal you have 4 different description sections for each app: default, for BBOS, PlayBook and BB10. I believe that if you have specific text (in any of the sections) it will overwrite the default text when checking the app from device. As for the browser - you can apply filters (selecting a given device), but I'm not sure which text is displayed if no device is selected.

Re: Default text

Right, the default text will be shown until the user logs in, then their device preference is used.
