    Really nice! Why does a 3rd party app scroll better than the native apps to the storm?
    The low-level support for handling the flick gesture is certainly there. I'm not sure why RIM decided against implementing it.

    Perhaps time was running out for the release and it didn't work as well as they had hoped?

    I certainly agree that it makes the user experience so much better to have it.

    Another thing I implemented is progressively faster scrolling. Let's say you've flicked to scroll down. If you flick again while it's still scrolling, the scrolling will speed up. Do it again and it goes even faster, etc.

    If you have problems with OTA install, try doing a sync install.

    You can download the files from here:

    More people would probably download it if you told us what kind of app it was.
    Really? You don't know what the Wall Street Journal is?

    It does run in the background. It updates stocks every 10 minutes and the rest of the news every 40 minutes.

    The news update time can be adjusted via "Settings -> Download -> Time in minutes between automatic update"

    Or, you can have the application exit completely by turning off "Settings -> Display -> Close sends application to background".

    this is the best app that I have seen.


    Does this app run all the time in the background? Is it going to eat up my battery?

    This is a great application, very nicely done. This proves to me that RIM could have implemented flick scroll if they chose to do so. 3rd party apps are going to rock on the storm!

    I had the problem with the keyboard remaining on the screen and after going back and reinstalling, I realized I entered the wrong link. I entered wsj in the link instead of wsju.

    What a difference a letter makes!

    Sorry no link since I'm a new poster.

    Excellent app, many thanks!

    How did you get the app to switch between portrait and landscape so much faster than the standard Storm apps? Also, love the scrolling. RIM would do well to take a look at this one.

    Oh yeah, and the content is sweet too.
