    I see that this is now available, but the app doesn't show up correctly on my phone. What I don't get is that it says its available for the Storm 2 9530?

    Landscape looks fine but portrait is screwed on my 9530. It looks like all it does is turn sideways but doesn't adjust the screen. I need this to work as I already have the alarm and I am going to add the SmartStart module soon.

    I downloaded and have the Viper alarm. I paid 400 for the alarm and I'm not going to pay another 200-300 for the module. That's just crazy man. I've already paid enough for the alarm. It does look cool on the phone tho.

    Does it show up in portrait mode correctly on your Storm 2?

    Nope, I just went ahead and deleted it. I'm sure there will be a fix for it soon tho.

    ** Instructions for using the app on BlackBerry Storm2 and Storm smartphones:

    1. Using the browser on your phone, download the SmartStart app.
    2. From the Options icon on your home screen, select "Applications".
    3. Highlight Viper SmartStart on the Applications list, and press the menu key.
    4. Select "Disable Compatibility Mode".
    5. Return to the Home screen, open the SmartStart application (normally located in Downloads folder).

    It would be great if they went ahead and fixed this issue. I would go out and buy it.
