    Arrow Testers Wanted: New instango beta on BB Storm

    Advertisement



    We have updated instango multi-client messenger to natively support the Blackberry 9500/9530 Storm.

    Everyone with a BB Storm is welcome to test it out and post back feedback here or in the instango Blackberry beta test forums.

    Download the beta OTA on your Storm from here (get.instango.com). Make sure you download the beta version!

    You might also want to take a look at a preview Quicktime video here (Youtube version) and check out the screenshots attached to this post.

    As this is an early untested beta for the Storm we are going to release fixes quite frequently so make sure you check for updates often.

    Minor update to 2.1.0 (2008-11-25)
    - Customizable backlight setting when instango is in front
    (You can have 'Default', 'Always On' which will keep backlight on while instango is in the front and 'On Incoming Message' which will turn the light on when instango is in the front and a new message comes in.
    - Improved selection of items in lists (Press ENTER on QWERTY devices, Click on Storm)
    - Improved reconnect reliability / Now shows time remaining until next reconnect
    - Improved loading speed on startup

    For everyone where instango is not correctly showing (Small screen with blue border and the virtual keyboard up). This means instango is running in compatibility mode on the Storm. You have two options
    1. Go to Options > Advanced Options > Applications on your Storm. Select instango, open the menu and then select 'Disable Compatibility Mode'
    2. Uninstall instango, then reinstall

    We are especially looking for things specific to the Storm. How is scrolling the contacts list/chat history working, how is chatting, how is the overall experience on the touch screen?

    So far the touch sensitivity stinks. I can only enter my user name. I know its not the device because this is the only app I have a problem with. Every
    time I try to click next to the password option it pops open the menu.

    So i downloaded and tested the beta version of Instango last night. I have to say i like it a lot. there are a few areas i feel need improvement, but before I go into that I want you to know I tested this application under multiple conditions. I first tested it on a full battery with low data coverage. The program ran well at first and then began to lag. I expected this due to the data coverage. I then used it with a full battery and full data and wireless coverage. The program performed really well. I found tho that when creating my accounts it was easier to move from the username data field to the password data field by tapping at the end of the username and dragging my finger down the screen a little ways so the cursor would move down. I also found that when scrolling through my buddy lists when i scrolled down the program lagged and cut some of the names off until i actually highlighted them on the storm. Otherwise the program responded well and i am impressed overall. I like the feature that allows the conversations that you are currently in to show up in your messages list just like the other instant messaging programs that are available for download through the applications center.
    Overall i think that this is a great program and i will be looking forward to future updates and beta versions as well. If you would like to know anything else please let me know.

    @ItsNowOrNever Do you still have that issue? I read in another thread that you wanted to send us a screenshot. Have you succeeded in taking the screenshot?

    In both of those images the keyboard comes out and the menu is stuck underneath it....(where it the picture cuts out is where the key board is.

    I dont know if it's my phone or the program, but the touch sensitivity still isn't there...everytime I try to touch it the menu pops up....

    Downloading the update to see what happens.

    Here is what it looks like when the program is just open and there is no keyboard...there is no full screen im age.

    This actually looks like you are running instango in compatibility mode. This happens when you download the official release version which does not yet support the Storm.

    Make sure you download the beta version from get.instango.com.

    When you open the menu and select Tools > About instango what version is it showing?
