OBSOLETE - website and source code repository are down

Screenshot / Code Snippet

Blackberry screenshot
(source: livinloud.ca)


I created this app because I always wanted to create an open source application. But I never had an idea on what to do. So I used my skill in BlackBerry development to build an app with the API provided by StackOverflow.


It's licensed under GNU General Public License v3


You can get the source code on Google Code, and compile it yourself with BlackBerry plugin.


BlackBerry OS 5.0 I will try to make it for 4.5+, but since RIM is trying to push OS 5.0 on all devices, I may not do it.


Right now I'm the only contributor, you can reach me on Google Code


I'm using J2ME and BlackBerry API to build the application and the BlackBerry eclipse Plugin


It is still in an alpha stage of development. I don't have much time this summer to finish this application. I will try to do my best to add code every week or two. If people are interested in helping, post your information on the Google Code page.

If people have logo, Application name idea, they are welcome.

This is the first time I show my code online, and I will apreciate any helpful comments on my work.

If you find out that my english is not well written, this is because it is not my first language, feel free to correct me.

The first version of the app was built during the close beta, but I never had the time to post on the other website for the beta.

    Now working with version 1.0 of the API, you can download the source from the project, compile it and test it.

  • 5-stars for listing this on StackList! (No really, it does deserve 5 stars.) Jul 13, 2010 at 6:33
  • @MichaelB. is this app alive? I have a BB 9360 with BB OS 7.1 and like to have this installed! Any way to get a .jar, .jad or install via OTA?

  • @Michael: Actually, I'm considering an Android app myself. May 28, 2010 at 6:56

Good job! BTW, don't use those suggested names if you don't want nasty-grams from RIM. They have specific guidelines here: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/legal/BlackBerry_Branding_Guidelines_September_2008_v1.pdf

  • I don't see anything wrong with the names, I don't use any of their copyright name.

The application does not work, or at least I cannot install it. I can get the jar file, but the phone gives errors on install. I tried to get the cod files in a different way and install the app offline, but I failed. Is this application valid for Blackberry Curve 8520 OS 5?

    Without the error message I can't help you...

  • I managed to install it, but I get the error : "Error starting stackoverflow: Module must be signed with the RIM Runtime Code Signing Key (RRT)" Aug 14, 2011 at 18:14
  • It seems I forgot to sign the package, I will have to recompile it.
