Guess BlackBerry finally made official that they are no longer in the hardware business. Even though it’s been in the making for a few years now it’s still sad to see that happen.
I’ve started work in earnest on a couple of apps for SailfishOS. Two social network client apps, a port of Renamed Todo, and one other that is in the planning stages. All of these are or will be open source projects and code will be published on my site. More on that soon.
As Google appears to be launching their new messaging services I think I’ll do a little housekeeping and delete the Hangouts app from my various devices. I haven’t been using it much anyway. I won’t be using Allo either since it looks to be yet another Google data vaccum.
An update is now available for all BlackBerry 10 devices in BlackBerry World which adds support for Dropbox API v2. There are no visible changes to this release, just behind the scenes work in preparation for the Dropbox deprecating their API v1. This will allow Renamed Todo to continue to function for the foreseeable future.

And update submitted to BlackBerry World. Let’s see how long it takes for them to review and approve.
I’ve pulled Todo.txt Enyo for the PlayBook from BlackBerry World today and I will no longer be developing for this particular device. My biggest reason has to do with the SDK and the odd bit of hacking it took to build this particular application (the combination of Java and Adobe AIR to build HTML5 apps is a bit bonkers). With Dropbox deprecating v1 of their API I felt it was a good time to bring this particular effort to an end. The source code will continue to be available from my site for those who wish to build their own BAR files. On the brighter side of things the Palm SDK still continues to work so I’ll be continuing support for webOS. I’ll be posting more on that in the near future.
