    Google Maps keeps crashing my Tour. GPS works for a few minutes, then screen goes blank, red LED light stays solid and device reboots. Any suggestions on how to fix?

    Other apps that work for me:

    Facebook
    Flickr

    Problems with:

    Vilingo
    Pandora

    I can't get any of the quick launch web icons to work yet (such as Wall Street Journal, NY Times, etc).

    Also, as I have upgraded from the 8830, I can't get the hang of what appears to be the Storm's browser. How do I make the fonts larger? Can't quite figure out the zooming and navigation options using the track ball. What about the Start page for the browser vs a home page? Could someone point me to a FAQ about the browser and for that matter OS 4.7 (such as how to work with folders, etc)?

    Sorry for all the questions!

    So far I'm using:

    facebook
    my verizon
    bolt
    ubertwitter
    berrybuzz 2.0
    berryweather
    tetherberry

    I got my quick launch to work. I had it for my Storm and for my Curve. I was pretty sure that my Storm version wouldn't work because of the touchscreen specifics so I installed the 8330 version. Seems to work fine, the only thing is the fonts are very, very small even on the large setting. probably due to the different screen resolution.

    Vlingo works fine if you go to the website from your phone and download the os4.7 version. I have it working on the Verizon Tour .40.

    Has anyone figured out how to get a non-touchscreen version of Google Maps on their Tour? I haven't been able to find the Bold version of the app.

    Which version of WeatherBug did you use? I tried the Storm version and it just locks up. I think it's expecting a screen input and I obviously can't do that (although I have been caught trying as I adjust away from my old Storm). I can't find any other version to install. The website just takes me in circles.
    This version of Weatherbug works perfect on the Tour.

    Same to report as cannonballgsu - Ascendo money lets you create accounts but can't finish a transaction without a null error.

    I downloaded weatherbug, but I can't find how to launch it. It's not listed under the applications, and I have show all checked. I can find it under the wrench icon under applications, but I can't launch it. Any ideas.

    Is opera mini better than the browser on the Tour? This is my first blackberry and I love the browser that's already on the phone, but I wouldn't mind trying out opera mini if its worth it.

    Well, for nothing else Opera allows you to have a second browser window open, so you can do sorta "tabbed" browsing by looking at Ebay in BB Browser, and Googling things under Opera. Having said that, I like Opera - I find that it's the most faithful way to reproduce pages that are NOT optimized for mobile.

    Had some issues with Pandora - Tried going to ver 1.0.3 as suggested by a storm user but that REALLY didn't work. eventually got 1.0.4 (from Pandora site) to work after 3rd un/re install. Just a bit quirky getting started I think - all is good now.

    I emailed Ascendo about Ascendo money, but haven't heard a response yet. If anyone hears anything, please post up, I'm lost without this app. I'm starting to think i should just carry my curve around to keep track of my transactions!

    Yes, I have the same issue... Flycast locks up when buffering. Hopefully an update will solve it shortly

    Can anybody confirm that berryweather does or does not work on the Tour?
    I haven't read through the rest of the posts, but if you haven't heard, BerryWeather is working on my Sprint Tour.

    Voila... Flycast has a new beta which apparently works on the Tour (haven't tried it yet though)

    FlyCast Forums • View topic - ** New ** Public FlyCast 2.00.7160 Public Beta

    Edit: this beta version of Flycast works perfectly with the tour!
