    Is it now a native app?
    Hey f1mx,

    It is not. It is however updated since my initial posting here several versions to now 1.6.3 which has quite some more new things and set the stage for future more additions.

    Check out the AppWorld Link for details about the recent update.

    And regarding re-write the whole thing into Native App,

    I just attended the Blackberry 10 Jam NYC event.
    I extremely liked what I have seen in BB10.

    To be specific and to be relevant to Facade here, the new BB10 Alpha Device (which I am playing with it for a day so far), has a Android Runtime or 2.0.347 (or some higher version number), which explains why I almost observed NO crash with it and the running speed of Facade is even beating the same Facade instance running on my Razr Maxx!

    If such significant improvement are brought by RIM's commitment of growing all their 3 tracks in BB10, shall I really re-invent the effort to re-write it using C++?

    Pros:
    It is native app then, it still performs the best. And a lot of other BB specific features may be added.

    Cons: a lot of library Facade is using do not provide their Blackberry version. They are provided in iOS / Android / Web etc.

    So to overcome that, I probably need to write a simple library for each social network's API for blackberry so that the whole thing is not in bad programming state.

    Still thinking. If Facade performance is fine to great in new OS, should I put effort to fill some other gaps in the platform by creating some other awesome Native Apps?

    Any suggestions are very very appreciated!
