Android app on BB not synching


Hello Guys,

Just a quick question or request.
I tried to use your android app on my BB z10, but does not synch, it keeps telling me I shall install the play applications to get synching.

Why is this exactly? Other apps could synch perfectly.

Would that be possible to update your android app to snych on BB, so every BB user could use this app too.

Hello Janos,

Our app indeed requires Google Play Services and at this point we're not planning to release a version that would sync independently of these services. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Oh, what a pity.
And would that be possible to know why is that ? I mean what is the additional function of the Google play services?
I am just interested.

Basically the whole syncing structure relies on the Play Services, background syncing, every time you make any change on any platforms, location reminders only work thanks to Google's API and Maps integration. That said, at this point, we can't maintain a separate app that would not use these services :-(
