BluePad v0.5 has just been released.

This new version features a complete redesign of the main menu to support more variate phone screens. Also, the Title Screen of death that makes you press 5 every time you use BluePad is now gone forever!!

Apart from that, some part of the code was also refactored.

Currently the new version is only available on SVN but we plan on releasing it to SourceForge ASAP.

Here’s how to get the new jar:

$ svn co

This will create a bluepad_mobile folder in your current directory containing BluePad and BluePad_alternative folders. The jar is inside the bin folder of both of the BluePad mobile versions.

Use the regular BluePad version unless you have a Nokia S60 or another phone that doesn’t like the normal version. Hope you like the new main menu. The next scheduled changes will make BluePad even better but that’s a secret kept in a scroll deep in a mysterious Portuguese city’s catacombs where everybody can go in but only me and Valério come out alive.
