    SocialScope on BB App World *RUMOR*

    Advertisement



    from what i'm hearing is that ss will be in the app world sooner than later. i was gonna guess it was sslite, but it looks like a twitter only version....where sslite has facebook as well.

    fire up the rumor mill.

    i wish i still had the original ss where you could separate by tabs...

    when they released the lite version for testing, i was bummed but figured this meant they would prob release a "paid" version .. guess we will see?

    yeah, i'd guess the original version is going to be paid(?) and the lite isn't....however, like i said, the one that is going to app world looks to just be twitter and not twitter and facebook like sslite is.

    ...yeah...i guess we'll see.

    the one on the app world will be free and the other weird thing, is that it has "news" and "friends" at the top. don't know what that means.

    if they go pay thats wack i think, but meh cause then if they make people update to the new one and then they wont be able to run it and will have to pay then why make people sign up for invites ?...

    at the end of the day makes no point if u ask me should just stay free for both versions

    i think a free basic version and a more robust version that would cost money makes perfect sense. i don't develop programs or anything, but doesn't investing months and hundreds of hours into something deserve some sort of compensation?? it's not like this is some app that was put together in a couple of hours.

    i for one appreciate if people make something when i can't...and if it's an app that i like or is useful to me, i'll pay for it. just rewarding hard work.

    Good point ^^^

    I think that's the way will work, a lite free app and full paid one.

    yeah, it's going to be free on app world, so i would guess, if you download that one, you'll have the option to upgrade for $$

    I missed the original invitation so I'll be interested to ty ANY version just to compare to all the others. I agree that, if it works well, etc., that compensation for their hard work is deserved. What I don't like is developers who "sling' an ap together, rush to market too soon and charge for it too. That's a bad combination.
