Home Screen Notes (Beta Download)
I'm putting up a beta of the app Home Screen Notes for download to see if I can get some feedback from OS 7 users. It seems some of my users are having trouble creating notes while others aren't. I'm having a bit of trouble recreating this issue so I am reaching out for help. The beta is fully functional but it will stop functioning on the last day of this month. In the cases it doesn't work, the phone provider wallpaper comes up.
Thanks again for the feedback!

Already got your app and that is exactly what it is doing to me tried a few different wall papers & all it did was revert the phone to the factory red wall paper
Used oem, photos, correct & non correct resolution wall paper
Twice out of about a dozen tries the wall paper took but there was no note on it
Using a bold touch 9930 os7 leak ver 353
Hope this helps
Originally I thought it could be encryption related but that I'm not sure if that is the case anymore because I've seen encrypted files behave like this.
The option is located under "Options" -> "Security" ->"Encryption". If "Device Memory" or "Media Card" is checked off for "Encrypt" then encryption is on.

I have nothing checked under encryption & never did
You mention drm protection in the help section thats why I tried all the different wallpapers
The app would even reset my wall paper to stock
I even tried leaving phone on stock red wallpaper & using a different one in the app & using 2 different wallpapers 1 on phone & 1 saved in app & results were the same

When I plug the phone in as usb drive there are files named
on the phone not on the sd card I installed
There listed under Blackberry/blackberry not removable drive/blackberry

Ok here is what I found
1) Computer reads sd card as BLACKBERRY2 & phone memory as removable storage - phone reads memory as sd card & store - was confusing me & may be of no consequence
2) Getting debug popups - sd card found writing to sd card - write successful - set wall paper sucessfully
3) App created new hsn file with note on it but still doesn't replace phone wall paper - phone reverts to stock red when note is posted - clearing note reverts phone back to wall paper I had it set to - Am using same wallpaper for note as on phone
4) hsn file is on sd card with new note (tried it 3 times with 3 different notes)
5) Note originally created was on a picture now Im using a wall paper so the background isnt the problem its just not posting

Yes its creating a hsn_wallpaper file.png with the note on it & I am able to create/edit the note on that file.
When I try to post the created note it removes the wallpaper I had on the phone but doesn't replace it
Clearing the note puts my wall paper back
I have since even tried posting a note with no wall paper in place but still doesn't post

Tried with the same correct resolution wall paper as before & same result - goes to red & wall paper is on sd card with note in hsn file
Then tried with 2 photos
1) replaced my wallpaper with photo no note & no note on hsn file
2) replaced my wallpaper again with no note this time there was a note on photo in hsn file
When I say replace wall paper it changed it on phone removing the one I had set. I had to go into settings & change it back

Further playing around
With stock red on phone app does nothing except create the hsn file with note
With a wall paper on phone and different wallpaper saved in the app it changes the wall paper as if you changed it in settings (no note) and creates the hsn file with note
Now I had to do this hooked up to the computer
I copied the hsn file with note to the pictures folder & tried to use it as a wall paper & it will not work so looks like the phone doesn't like hsn/png files as wall paper
Edit: Instead of encoding to png i tried jpg, hope this works: http://public.cpqsoft.com/notes4/HomeScreenNotes.jad

That did it yeaaaa
Just a note : The wall paper you use in the app sticks when you clear the note - but the note does clear, edit, color change OK
Tried about all the adjustments & color changes & all are working

What I meant was that if you use a different wall paper in the app than whatever you had on the phone the app wall paper sticks like you had changed it in phone settings didn't know if that was meant to work like that.
I thought the app wall paper was meant to clear with the note - just saying
