Re: Social Integration !!!

Hi moe85, this is the right place to be asking these types of questions.  Welcome to the Web forums, home of may friendly experts happy to assist 


Let me get you started:


1. Have you see the Twitter API Wiki?



2. I have personally not used Facebook Connect - would love to hear from other developers who've had success with this.  Did the Facebook developer's site? http://developers.facebook.com/


3. You can transfer data between pages using cookies, URL query string, HTML5 local/session storage, Web DB, etc.


4. We are happy to hear of developers using PhoneGap, which is a great tool for creating BlackBerry apps.  it is a 3rd party product though, and if you are looking for documentation, I'd recommend http://docs.phonegap.com/


5. Can you pls clarify what is your question?


6. What do you mean by "data online"?  For local storage, the Internet is your friend Smiley Wink  This is a standardized HTML5 API (http://dev.w3.org/html5/webstorage/), so many developers have produced great learning resources and published them on your sites.  For example: http://diveintohtml5.org/storage.html

5. my question was i find many way to use XHR with BB Webworks App, what is the best one that works on all BB OS 4,5,6
