New BlackBerry version of CampusM due January

We've spoken with the developers and in January they are hoping to release a new version of CampusM designed specifically to work on BlackBerry devices running OS5 and OS6. We will keep you updated as we learn more.

The original BlackBerry version of the University mobile app, CampusM was released fairly soon after the original iPhone app. It seemed to work well for a long time but increasingly we have heard that students are reporting errors when attempting to download the app. Interestingly it also seems to have been removed from BlackBerry App World.

We think that the link here: http://m.grppl.com/g/2470/cmuos will allow users of BlackBerry devices running OS4 to install and run the original CampusM app for BlackBerry but unfortunately no-one in CiCS has an OS4 BlackBerry to test this on! If you have a BlackBerry running OS4 could you please test this link and let us know what happens!

In other CampusM news, CiCS staff recently attended a developer's conference and have returned with a number of great ideas on how to quickly improve and increase the range of services offered by CampusM. These should be hitting your handset over the coming days and weeks.

If you don't yet know how useful CampusM can be for students check out the video below by the developers oMbiel.
