    FYI,

    remote control WORKS with the 1.0.8 PlayBook OS as long as you download the 2.0 Bridge right now

    Non-touchscreen users:

    To use bezel gestures, scroll to the edge and push alt+click trackpad
    Thanks for the bezel gesture tips. Time to move the Bridge higher up the homepage.

    I love that you can set your Playbook up to take a photo and get into the frame yourself and snap the pic using your phone as a remote! Very cool!

    You don't need the bridge browser. When you are in bridge mode the regular browser works!
    Thank you guys ---- i was in a total panic - all better now

    Just for kicks, I added my 9900 to my laptop through Bluetooth and lo and behold... I can use the mouse and keyboard from my phone on my PC!

    This is awesome.
    Do you have instructions describing how to do this?

    Use the regular browser
    I know you think that's helpful, but remember that some of us are connected to a BES and if we want to access the corporate Intranet, some of us need the Bridge Browser to do that. please don't discount the Bridge Browser when someone asks for help with it.

    If the Bridge Browser is missing try rebooting the PlayBook and the Phone. You can also try removing and re-adding the PB to bridge.

    ALLRIGHT ALLRIGHT, Calm down. I got this!

    Alt + trackpad motion is scroll.. ONLY IN THE BROWSER. On the home screen it's holding the trackpad down + trackpad motion.

    I don't know why these 2 things are seperate. One might imagine this gets changed.

    For bezel Gestures.. one might imagine to get the cursor to the edge of the screen.. and then clicking. However it doesn't work yet. Thus we just use the Menu Key and select ''next app'' or ''home'' or whatever you like.

    To close an app.. Select ''home'' and navigate the cursor to the little X button below the app.
    actually using alt + trackpad on ur bb phone will do the trick

    also you can close an app by simply swiping over it with a mouse click

    its actually quite easy guys treat the trackpad like you would the pb screen and if a click doesnt work try alt + click and the jestures will work!!

    one problem though... I have college tomorrow and I cant sleep due to massive 2.0 anxiety! DAMN YOU RIM!!!!!

    PS* make sure u "enable drag-lock support" in bridge remote control settings!!

    Well luckily I think RIM thought of that so if your at work and you need to use bridge + pb + web browser.. turn of the wireless on your pb.. and enjoy the wonders of bridge problem solved!

    NOW REJOICE 2.0 IS NEAR!!!

    Dad has a 9630 on BES and he has Bridge Browser and it works fine. I cant take into account the dozens of BB models +OS + PlayBook OS combos out there. You literally have 24 hours to wait.

    I think we need a STICKY on using the Remote both with touch-screen phones and with the older trackpad ones (like I have!).

    Strange, my post got all screwed around using my 9930, but anyway, I'm on BES and I have the Bridge Browser working fine too. I was just saying that telling someone to just use the regular browser when they are requesting help with the Bridge Browser is not helpful, even though I know you were trying to be.

    I have a 9780 with bridge ver 1.0.7.4. When I check for updates it says I have the most recent version. I need ver 2.0 for bridge on my phone for it to work right?

    trying to update bridge, says there is an upgrade available but no upgrade button.. Hmm weird.
    I had the same issue on my wife's 9800. Just do a couple of refreshes of the app list. It eventually shows up.


    Typing this from my 9900 is so cool even on 1.0.8.
