BlackBerry 10 is fast approaching and it seems that the Developers who managed to get themselves an Alpha A or B device have come across an issue preventing Developers from integrating parts of Facebook with their apps.
The issue arises from the need to have a Webview that lets you pass authentication between the app and Facebook using the native Facebook API’s however the BB10 Alpha devices do not have webview thus making it impossible to make apps integrate correctly.
I try to create native app using facebook api using the webview to get the URL link to retrieve the access token. However, the webview won’t display the redirected link from that API hence won’t allow me get the result. I did try using the normal browser and it works fine. Really confused now, is it the webview on bb10 dev alpha not working properly with facebook redirect??
Anyone ever try to develop facebook connect App using bb10?? Please help….
note: I’m using cascade, bb10, dev alpha
According to BlackBerry Cool who published this story, the above excerpt comes from the support forums and has been unanswered for almost 1 month.
That same post suggests that this could be a way to get developers to use ScoreLoop however we should state that this is speculation.
Are you a BlackBerry Dev? Have you came across this issue? Do you have a workaround?
