    ...how did it?

    It doesn't run or feel like a true Cascades app. It runs like an app with another GUI designed to attempt to mimic Cascades. (HTML5 maybe? I'm no expert therewith.)

    For example, you can't slowly swipe and "stick" the icons of the menu items to the left like you can in true Cascades apps, Also, it comes from the wrong direction and just feels...different. Open it and pay attention--see for yourself.

    All of the Cascade-like gestures and menus work and look slightly different and are SIGNIFICANTLY laggier.

    Not to mention, until the most recent update, there were plenty of glitches with playback such as extremely long load times, one track failing to load causes no track to want to load until the user closes and re-opens the app, and poor playback controls.

    Hey, I'm not trying to bash it. It is a pretty good app belonging to a pretty good service, especially when considering Playlist.com doesn't exist as it once did.

    But I'm genuinely curious and concerned that B4BB has been given in error/too easily here. I've used native Cascades apps that didn't yet have B4BB status yet ran much, much smoother than ET.

    Reminder: B4BB is supposed to be the elite status denoting that an app has not only been built fully using native Cascades, but also that it complies with several other important quality-based criteria.

    I've never used the app, so I can't comment on how it looks or functions, but according to the Built for BlackBerry critera, WebWorks and Adobe Air applications are eligible.

    It doesn't always needs to be a Cascade app. Cascade UI is just that... a UI. The code / language used on writing the app is the one that matters. BlackBerry supports different coding language for BlackBerry 10

    I don't think you understand what BFB is, or denotes.

    Cascades is not a requirement. App speed and versatility generally can get an app stopped. But also is not a requirement.

    Webworks (html5)
    Sencha (html5)
    Flash (as3)
    Marmalade (c++)
    Unity (c++)
    Cascades (c++)

    Just to name a few, are all BFB valid platforms.

    Shortly after I wrote this I read up more on it...my apologies.

    In my opinion and extensive usage, I don't believe BFB status should be afforded to EasyTune at this time. The UI was not made fluidly and consistently and the app isn't up to par in terms of speed.

    No apologies needed! BlackBerry hasn't communicated it very clearly imo...
