Gravity (beta) updated to encompass Foursquare API changes

Published by at

I have no idea why Jan Ole Suhr doesn't just make the 'beta' version of Gravity the version, at this stage in Symbian's ecosystem history. Still, most people reading this will be on the 'beta' track, in which case note that there's a new version to be aware of. The good news? It fixes compatibility with changes made to Foursquare's APIs. The bad news? That's all that's different, so if you don't use Foursquare then don't bother!

Anyway, from the MobileWays beta page:

The Foursquare API change is all documented here, if you're interested.

It's pretty impressive that Gravity is still being updated for the old S60 3rd Edition/FP1 platform, dating back to 2006. It shows what can be done with some good old fashioned native Symbian C++ coding!

Update: the beta has now hit .7307, with a Flickr API fix too. Great to Jan Ole back on Symbian development!!

Some screenshot proof:


I always find it easier to download straight from the beta page and install in-place. The in-app updating doesn't work for the beta track immediately, etc.
