    Hey Everyone,

    Just saw that Nokia Maps has a pretty good mapping solution, and since it's web based I had an idea.

    I was thinking to make it a web app so that I could change the icon as well as run it in a chromeless window.

    When I try to run the application on my PlayBook I get this error "This file could not be opened. check that you have the correct permissions and try again"

    I didn't have any special permissions in the config.xml file I've posted both the Config.xml file and blackberry-tablet.xml source codes.

    Hope someone can figure this out


    Config.xml

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets" version="1.0.0">
    <rim:loadingScreen backgroundImage="blackberry.png"
    onFirstLaunch="true" />
    <name>Maps</name>
    <access subdomains="true" uri="http://m.maps.nokia.com"/>
    <content src="m.maps.nokia.com"/>
    </widget>



    blackberry-tablet.xml
    <qnx>
    <icon>

    </icon>

    You should just build a webapp from scratch that points to Nokia Maps using nokia user agent. Or Nokia Maps - City and Country Maps - Driving Directions - Satellite Views - Routes using non-nokia user agent.

    I've fixed it actually

    Turns out in my config.xml I didn't use the "http://" designation on the src line.

    I've fixed that and changed a few things around, here's a link for the app

    Maps.bar

    Yep that was one of the fixes that I made, all I needed to do there was add one line of code into the config.xml.

    Thanks for the feedback
