    Please elaborate on why you cannot use it properly?
    Yeah, that's odd works perfect Paul, must be a User error. It's the best in blackberry world of s kind. Star will end up on the front page and will go down as the best as the OS falls into more obscurity.

    STAR is a Must-Have..

    Star Player will soon support Background Checking of Announcements, this will be completely optional and the initial choice will be given to current users when the App is started after the update (new users will be enabled by default with an option to disable when a new Announcement)

    Sweeeeet! #ForeverUpdates

    I spy custom radio stations, goodbye to another old app I had that I won't mention. Thanks Paul. I wonder why everybody reads this but not many respond. I know you said I severely over estimate the install base but I'm sure the ones who do use it and know it's solid, it's a main application for them as in needed as in if one restarted (like me and yourself probably) a BB10 phone we would go for the re download ASAP. It's funny, Star would of been a staple for me long ago but I kept screaming for 1x1 and we finally got it. LOL. Hey, 4:3 wouldn't be bad either if not so hard only because with some media (suppose why super tube has all three as in full screen, 1:1 and 4:3) but not most but some, as in... like a Key one video would be best to watch in 4:3 so it doesn't look extremely distorted but imo ALL movies are best in the stretched that you have us as it just works, can not notice anything much of a difference and no black bars. The reason for 4:3 like the crappy AV and Kalem has as well as the superb SuperTube is as its in between and gives is less of black bars but still not overly stretched for things that we truly need to see the sizes like a phone review. I do use it at times but like I said, if it's really hard to do, not worth it but if not to tough it's definitely a plus as I do use it for very particular videos but very few if any movies that need it. I never watch it in 16:9 on the 1x1 BB screened phones. Hope that makes sense..

    CellNinja seems to be doing the same stuff with his apps as in forever features and updates... HE Just gave us some real cool new feature(s) within Hubby.

    Honestly I will be happy when BB10 gets even rarer and it's the true, true die hards as then, imagine how cool we will be then? Also, virus? Hah!.. would be unspeakable...

    If we had a secondary genius like Cobalt as backup as mnot sure if he did anything except when he was on the OS personally however I could be fully wrong and it doesn't matter, he still did so much for US. Super curious what will happen when WE need one more reverse engineering trick as in all the .apks. I'd understand if he didn't but it would hurt like hell. Since most folks are cheap, I say he should charge next time, why not! Just my opinion he will say it's not moral probably because it's not his software and he reminds me of the Internet's own boy. Hah, "BB10 's own boy" but we all know or can imagine what (allot of work) goes into that and in a way, least to Us - it is his software! Now I know he is NOT on BB10 for sure. So, Wondering what will happen. We shall see as 'as far as I know nobody else exist like him and his stuff isn't open source for a genius Russian or Chinese to follow up on. Wow, I just generalized there, such poor taste on my part but I'm speaking the truth. Lol..

    Your the only one I am sure is not on BB10 anymore but not ONLY maintaining his apps but adding features. Shows me much of your character especially with such a small user base because of the Os's small user base! That's dedication and would not be surprised to see you rise up one day and have your own software or OS, etc.. anything business wise and hear on wiki - this is the guy who made star on BB10 as persistent folks like you with a passion even when they are not even using it Daily are a very rare breed man!..

    I think a entire thread if not forum should be opened under the BB10 Os/apps sector for developers whom don't want to work with their apps anymore and are broken (so if people pay they are being stolen from) to hand over their stuff for others to take over open source. I know I would! Well no, I would be more like u and keep it up myself whatever it took. I may be over estimating the user bases installations BUT one things for certain, the ones whom do use it consider it a STAPLE like Hubby, etc. I wish BB10 was a little easier to work with for you to do your Star Browser on BB10 we are going to need it if Q Browser Pro ever doesn't stick around but so far, he's one of the great ones too!

    One thing I wish (totally happy with Passport as it is even the 801 Is superb for me) is that we were working with lolli ART or least KK. ...but so far, so good. I think this is one thing holding cobalt back from ever giving us the apps we need reversed from something like Android O or P,Q or R. Again, I am really curious to see how it all plays out. Either way, he's a legend too. Even if he has to go now.

    Hopefully we get some more times (one more major updates to the cobalt apps) to carry us through for awhile longer as imo a 801 on BB10 feels like a 820 on android. When using finally tuned BB apps like Star, etc and still very relevant to run our android apps fast enough, even with GPS tramp stamp.

    Sorry for the rant and off topic but with BB10 you know we see hope then also we see the sure future and it gets me Jittery as our Cobalt is a very private guy and even when thee updates come, he just puts them on the page like it's not the HUGE deal that it is..
    ... he says: Update! LMAO.. love that guy....

    Hey Paul, mind me asking what is your main phone now?

    Was that lck feature an easy implementation if you looked intobit? I know it can't be locked from swipe up but it's called a "controls lock" or that's what makes sense as that's what what it is and does make sense. I forgot, wish there was a feature I didn't mention in the survery..

    I dunno how I forgot as its super important to me for when your gone.

    Besides having the "in between" stretch A.K.A. 4:3 along with our 1x1 stretch immersion mode we now have would be for it to be able to be SET as a default like "that other one behind you now" that you can pick it to the video setting you want as in start on 1:1 or in between 4:3 or the standard thick black bars which I never use but surely some video buffs whom perfection on the screen means more to them then a fully immersion experience as I love with giving a little back as in that tad of a stretch. It's a no brainer. Especially with a 4:3 option, I suppose the people who prefer a happy medium would set that to their defaults.

    Hope this makes sense..

    Here is a way to show you the three options Supertube has as well as a few others that are way below Star! I actually like how it says 1:1, 4:3 (middle of road black bars) and 16:9 which I suspect is the normal thick black bars we use before we had Star and Supertube.

    16:9 (standard?)



    4:3 (Middle of road best screen fill least stretch)



    16:9 (standard thick black bars)



    In since everyone knows what 1:1 means, I find it odd nobody uses that within the app for the function as in name it 1:1 (fill) or just 1x1 something alike. I suppose people only know what fill means. LOL. Each 1:1 is particular to how the dev made it to as Supertube is superb and star seems great as well as in the best experience to NOT cut anything off of the video with also filling the entire screen of a 1:1. I never use the Zoom feature as I just hadn't had a use for it. What would be some reasons to maybe use the zoom? Porn? I am totally kidding man. I'm horrible.. Haha.

    Keep it up brother..

    Dude the zoom would be AWESOME (orb a mode) that allowed us to zoom in a mode u have now with the pinch but to zoom as much as we want without it cutting anything off? That would be a FIRST for any player, just thought of it now with messing with all other junkie ones that have a few good features. The one that is closest to star doesn't even have a feature like that. Did I explain that right? That would be spectacular! I dunno what u would call it as it would be a mode you'd make that would be a first but it would make so much sense! So much! Also, this other player (the only one close to star starts with a K) will ask you if you want to Resume your movie from where youb left off as in resume or play. It does this on not just the last movie watched partially but all media (movies, video) as in a elegant standard white popup comes up and says, would you like to resume last position or start from beginning? This is another littleb cool trick I didn't mention but just tossing around the few things it's missing that others may have however they still come nowhere near star!

    Yeah, if we could zoom (without cutoff) to whatever we feel is tjhe hapeiest medium In a special mode, that would be a literal first and a big dealb imo.. just hit me man!

    Well I genuinely like BB10, it was the replacement for Symbian I was looking for, unfortunately BB messed it up (I say now and will always say 10.2.1 was the most stable version), I did the same for Symbian when I left.



    . I wish BB10 was a little easier to work with for you to do your Star Browser on BB10 we are going to need it if Q Browser Pro ever doesn't stick around but so far, he's one of the great ones too!
    The thing with Star Browser is that it was a very complicated Application, the WebView was a subclass of the QWebView which was heavily modified, along with a 90% custom UI created by myself; BB10 isn't as flexible in both cases.


    Hey Paul, mind me asking what is your main phone now?
    I use a OnePlus 5 as my main device, previously a Nexus 6p; not really a fan of Android but Oxygen OS is acceptable; it's got a Dark theme + Hub with Dark Theme is nice.

    Interesting and thanks for answering all of that.
    Perfectionist? LOL, me to but you wouldn't know it as get ahead of myself sometimes.

    I have no doubt that you won't forget.

    I see CellNinja actually has an app that fully locks an app to the screen so it may be possible but I don't think it's that needed to go MAD over. I'd more rather see the pinch to zoom without cutting anything out. That be a first.

    Update will be available next week, a little heads up i will be pulling the survey and re-launching it after a few people have updated (so they are notified if they turned Auto Announcements on)
