Update: Bloo is officially off the market with todays announcement for Facebook for Android 1.4.0. Looks like Facebook is in good hands! 🙂 It’s been a trip.
Update: Kate from the comments provided some instructions to get the 6 digit code! Thank you Kate!
1. In your browser, enter in http://m.facebook.com (this will bring up the mobile site)log-in to your facebook account.
2. In the “Search” box at the BOTTOM of the page type in “Bloo for Android” and click on “Search”.
3. Click on the application “Bloo for Android” (NOT the group).
4. Then click on the button that says “Allow”. This will link your Facebook account with Bloo.
5. Now, from your phone go to your Bloo application and click on “Get Code” and it should take you to the code page!
*Note* I used the m.facebook.com site directly from my PC, I didn’t try it on my phone… so if it doesn’t work on your phone, try it on your home computer.
I hope this helps out a lot of people!
Ok, things obviously haven’t been progressing as well as we thought out for Too and from the looks of it neither Bloo One is doing great either. There are a lot of complaints from people who cannot retrieve the 6-digit code anymore. Perhaps because Facebook has probably removed it as it is migrating to much better ways of authenticating the user. New and exciting ways the Bloo Too is using but not Bloo One.
I have reached a decision regarding both the apps. Bloo One will no longer be available on the market by the end of October. Simply because anyone who downloads it will not be able to receive the 6-digit code. As for Too, I am postponing it indefinitely and I am actually considering of releasing what I have, which is a bare bones app that only allows you to change status and share links. Hopefully one of you guys or a team can take over and make it big. One final consideration is to switch back to just create a Facebook Chat client only. The future is uncertain as you can tell and it will all depend on my time available for it. Trust me, I made this app, I love it and I want to continue it but I can’t keep you guys waiting without delivering. I’d rather push back for now and perhaps surprise you in the near future.
As a side note, the project I’ve been working on non-stop has finally been announced today. It’s the Logitech Revue with Google TV. It is very exciting and also responsible (in a good way) for the lack of time for Bloo. I opened up a new blog for it here.
Android has matured and has become an amazing OS to develop for. It looks like the Facebook app is also doing alright! Unfortunately, there are only 24 hours in a day and I am struggling to fit it in all together for you guys. I apologize in advance if you were looking forward for more support and better communication.
