blackberry app generator issues

[ Edited ]

 

Hello,

 

I'm relatively new with Blackberry app development, so bear with me.

 

When using the "App Generator", I can add up to four RSS feeds. However:

 

- there does not seem to be an option to delete a feed (?!)

- when updating the feed itself, you get the "fetching content" again, but

the preview image always shows the first, outdated, feed. It seems the only

way to get the feed to refresh is to change the URL

 

What is the frequency with which the feeds are checked?

 

Is there a reference for which tags can be included in the feed?

 

thanks for any help,

 

Patrick

Re: blackberry app generator issues

Hi pmin00,

 

Answers to your App Generator inquiries are as follow:

 

1) Drag-and-Drop the feed-item with the mouse onto the red X symbol to delete the feed

 

2) Correct, there is no force feed refresh/reparse button. The only way to force the system to re-fetch "old" content is to change the feed url

 

3) Between 5 minutes to 2 hours. Depending on the amount of users of the app. The more users the more frequent it checks for new content

 

4) Tags we look at within a feed:

<title>

<link>

Re: blackberry app generator issues

Hello,

I'm creating an app with the BlackBerry App Generator. I noticed on the " Nollie " by Aigua Media Trading Ltd. app, for example, the splash screen is different than most of the other apps made with the App Generator. I would like my splash screen to be great like this one and was wondering how this was done. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

hi Ryan,

For the 3rd layout though (see attached screenshot), it seems

you should be looking for icons?
