Social Net apps

[ Edited ]

Could any one tell me how facebook or foursquare work on BB10? Is it a native app or web app?

Nope, afaik, Facebook is the mobile web version wrapped in an app.

Re: Social Net apps

With FaceBook It depends exaclty you you want to use it


You need authentication and this is easiest on an external server


Do dox as with many APIs are lacking


The easiest solution is to send a message to your server then handle it that way and return what you need to know


I've done some experiments and they were extrremely successful


I would urge enctypted comms to your server though to keep everything safe
