    New to the forum - just purchased Bucks Finder application from BB app world to find local starbucks whenever I travel (jealous of the Iphone app..) and once I bought it, turned it on, it thinks I am in Canada, which I am NOT. Sent email to support team and heard nothing. Does anyone else have this application or know anything about it?

    It appears the "Advance non GPS location Algorithm" needs some fine tuning.

    I would think your GPS would accurately locate your position. Are you not able to make that setting?

    You should contact the developers for clarification.

    I downloaded the app, BBstorm said it was installed. I tried to open it and an agree/disagree screen came up. Clicked "agree", started browser, requested and went to a terms and conditions screen with all the pages that go with that, but there was no where else to click or say I agreed. I can't get any further than the terms pages. Can't get into the program. Help
