Third party apps and 'Today' styled theme

Hello,

 

How can a 'Today' style theme retrieve information from a third party app so it can display it? Is there an extension API or anything the application needs to implement?

 

Thanks.

 

Regards,

Daniel

This is not currently supported, but is a great idea.  I recommend logging a feature request in the Issue Tracker:  https://www.blackberry.com/jira/secure/Dashboard.jspa

So there is currently no way at all that a theme can query information from a BlackBerry app and display it on the home screen?

Themes can query information from the built in BlackBerry applications, but not from third party applications.
