Does anyone know of some third party app websites?

Does anyone know of any websites that have 3rd party apps for the instinct like getjar.com? Or any programs that someone has gotten to work on the instinct? Post them on this thread please....

Re: Does anyone know of some third party app websites?

The phone just came out not even a month ago. Sprint is holding a contest for developers to create applications for the Instinct, so there are some on the way. This is the link to the post, right here on the BAW forums.

Re: Does anyone know of some third party app websites?

There are tons of FREE third party Java mobile applications that DON'T work on Sprint Instinct because Sprint/Samsung neglected to implement MIDP 2.0 (standards) compliant virtual keyboard that works on almost all phones that support mobile Java. Instead they implemented their own keyboard widget which is cool but it would be a lot more beneficial for us if they also implemented the regular MIDP 2.0 compliant keyboard software code for Instinct.

If you want to use a number of great FREE third party applications with Instinct that are already available, please make an appeal to Sprint as described here:

Here is a site where you can get a large number (many free) of third party applications for Sprint Instinct. They install fine on Instinct but you can't really use them because Sprint didn't implement the standard keyboard for Java applications so when you try to type anything, you get a text input screen but no keyboard!!
