We’ve now released a maintenance release build!
We know you’ve been waiting patiently for weeks – let’s hear your feedback!
*We ask that all testers please create a backup of their device information prior to installing the software, such that your data can be restored if issues are encountered upon loading the software. If you require instructions on how to do this, please click here.
Please download via OTA only and also make a note of the feeds in your personal feeds list before you upgrade. I know some of you may have A LOT of feeds, but BlackBerry News Feeds is beta software and it’s better to be safe than sorry!

To download BlackBerry News Feeds, you will need to download the software from BlackBerry App World’s Test Center. The purpose of this beta program is to allow you to preview the BlackBerry News Feeds software and report issues and features enhancements before the application leaves App World’s Test Center.
During this Beta program, one build of the BlackBerry News Feeds software will be made available for testing. However, this may change as schedules are currently tentative.
We want to hear your feedback on the BlackBerry News Feeds application!
Feature requests – We will take all of your feature requests into consideration. Due to product schedules, you may not see your request in the next release of the software, but rest assured that we’re taking note of common requests for future versions of the application!
Bugs and issues – We will investigate any bugs you report and bring them to the attention of the News Feeds development team; however every issue you find may not be fixed by the time the application exits App World’s Test Center.
The BlackBerry News Feeds software is compatible with BlackBerry devices using OS 4.6-6.0 software.
