For a lot of 2009 the BlackPing project was in hibernation. This caused a lot of frustration for our users for which I'm very sorry. Thankfully the end of 2009 has granted us some time to work on BlackPing and a new version will be coming sometime in the first quarter of 2010.
The new version of BlackPing will include the following:
In the beginning, BlackPing was created as part of a pet project. It fulfilled two purposes: getting my feet wet in regards to BlackBerry development and allowing me to use Ping.fm with more ease than the mobile website provided. The application was created and released and it's popularity grew beyond my wildest expectations. Now, it's time to take a step back and develop the application in a more professional manner. To get this started I created a list of requirements. Feel free to add your own using the comments section.
I know that you all feel forgotten since it has been quite some time since BlackPing has been updated. Unfortunately I can't give you a definitive date as to when a new version will be release. Please be assured that a new version is coming and that, as far as free software goes, BlackPing is a top priority.
