SMS Backup tutorial

Since we’re getting a lot of questions on how to view or print backup files, we have made a short tutorial video on this.

Before opening the backup file (*.xml), make sure that a stylesheet file (sms.xsl) is present in the same folder. If you are copying the file to the computer, both files need to be transferred.

To edit the backup file you should use an advanced editor such as Notepad++ that knows how to deal with XML files. If you just want to view the content or print conversations, you can do so by opening the backup file with Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Super Hexagon for BB10 now available!

Press release

“Surprise! Super Hexagon is now available for the new Blackberry 10! This wasn’t originally something I had lined up – the opportunity to do it just sorta came along.

Basically, Laurence Muller, who ported the C++ openFrameworks version of the game to Android, has an interest in Blackberry – he maintains the unofficial Blackberry port of openFrameworks. So when Blackberry came along and asked us to do the port, we figured, let’s give it a shot!

If you’ve got one of these fancy new Blackberry 10 devices, you can get it from here, or the store on your device. (A playbook version is also a possibility at a later date.) Enjoy!
