Preload Bloo App Permissions

Hey guys,

First the video. I know you are waiting for it but I might need a few more hours for this due to real-life issues I have to deal with. I apologize for this, it WILL exist and the APP will be PUBLISHED this week so do NOT worry.

Now, to use 3rd party apps you must grant Facebook permissions. Each permission allows you to perform a certain action. This is how Facebook works. If I could do it differently I would. The good news is that you only have to do this once!

All permissions can be enabled through the phone in the app, but to make it easier and get you started quickly I recommend you to do it from desktop or laptop.

Follow these steps:

  1. Bloo will ask you for a 6-digit key upon startup.
  2. Get your 6-digit-code here – Write this down and enter it when you get Bloo. If for any reason you are unable to login with your code, do not hesitate to generate a new code. Sometimes if it takes time they might expire. If you uninstall Bloo later on you will have to generate another one.
  3. Enable read-stream permission – Enable this to view the feed and all your friends feeds. Once you do this you never have to do it again even if you uninstall Bloo from your phone.
  4. Enable publish-stream permission – Enable this to be able to POST new posts, comments, UPLOAD and TAG pictures. Once you do this you never have to do this again even if you uninstall Bloo from your phone.

That’s it! Remember you can do this from the app, this is only to make your life easier.

I am sorry about the video, I had it started but then things came up.

  7. Bill says:

    I’m looking forward to this more than I was looking forward to the cupcake release!

  8. Jamm says:

    So…. it will be on the Market this week?? OR are we dowmloading it from the web?

  9. docgab says:

    Thanks for the heads up. Personally I feel no apology is needed for real life situations popping up. Hopefully it is nothing serious! Looking forward to the app. 🙂

  10. mbiza says:

    how much will be the price??

  11. Bill says:

    I currently use Babble, Fbabble and FriendMobilizer. I’m so ready to trashcan all three of those and free up some space on my home screen! I’m hoping Bloo will suitable replace all three of those apps.

  12. randy says:

    If it’s paid app…..means I have to root my phone to get it.. cos now paid app doesn’t show on my county market. ..

  13. Shrike says:

    If its a paid app it will be great if you provide another way to buy the app other than the market (say through paypal on your blog or something) for us that live in countries where paid apps are not supported (Cyprus). Thanks again for all the hard work you’ve put into this.

  14. Pie says:

    @Randy: even if you root it, This will happen.
    I’ve got the ADP in Belgium (which is rooted by default, plus I got the JF FW installed), same issue.
    Though they should have paid apps allready because they are launching the HTC Magik over here…

    And Dimitris, nice job man !
    Hope I’ll be able to install it this week, leaving for the States on sunday so I can test it out to it’s full extend 🙂

  15. Kevin says:

    Thanks for the update! I’m looking forward to the release of the app! I already changed my settings, so I’m ready to go for bloo! Can’t wait to see the vid! I’ll be waiting for it! :]

  16. acadi says:

    You are a godsend to those who love facebook and android o/s

  17. vivanno says:

    Thanks for your job !

  18. Alex says:

    I am so excited about this and i cant wait for the video. Thanks for all you time and hard work.

  19. Anthony, Glossop, UK says:

    Nevermind the video – I’m already to find out for myself 🙂

    Take your time and get yourself sorted and when you are ready, there’s an army of people waiting in the wings 🙂


  20. randy says:

    Like what shrIke mentioned, I do really hope to get this absolutely wonderful app on my magic. If it’s paid app, hope there’s other way for payment such as paypal…..

  21. Alex says:

    Hi, can you post the link to the program?
    I think that my italian provider (TIM) block the application on the Market..

  22. Jamm says:

    All ready to go. Funny, the price has never been stated. How much will it be??

  23. Henry says:

    its 11 at night and I cant wait! I cant sleep because I want it so badly!!!

  24. Sam says:

    Locked and Loaded.. awaiting co-ordinates to download app.. Can’t wait…. 😀
    Hope the real-life commitments are not too concerning.

  25. todd says:

    This is great!

    Just from pics it looks like you did such an amazing job, hats off!

    Can you post a link to download apk? App store is ok too, but some providers and/or countries have not yet unlocked full app store access

    Installing from SD is easy enough…..

    Thanks in advance!

  26. You definitely deserve some compensation if this app is a sweet as it sounds, but could create issues for those in other countries. If you release the app for free, can you post a Donate link for us to hit up?


  27. travis says:

    i went ahead and did these steps, but i guess i will have to do the first one again since it might expire before i get the app? we will see. can’t wait!

  28. […] kan allerede nu opsætte din Facebook konto til Bloo, så du kan starte hurtig og nemt, når Bloo rammer Android […]

  29. Shrike says:

    Well it seems that the Bloo videos have already been posted in youtube. Take a look:

  30. Shrike says:

    I don’t know about you guys but I’m friggin excited. I just watched the videos on youtube and I can tell you this app rocks! It’s beyond great 🙂 Android just found its killer app.
    And since I believe Dimitris you are Greek: “Ευχαριστούμε φίλε. Έκανες τέλεια δουλειά!”.

  31. Shrike says:

    Since this is a paid app I would like again to ask if its possible to have another way to purchase the app other than the market since a lot of countries (including Cyprus – where I live) do not support paid apps. Thnx.

  32. mr.f says:

    Greece doesn’t support paid apps, 😦

    Make another version that unlocks with a key you buy from paypal and is unique or something?

  33. Jonathan says:

    The vids were great, showed off all I wanted to see. You said notifications were only for your last status update? What about comments on things you’ve commented on? or comments on your photos? It would be great to get all the standard facebook notifications.

    I’m also glad this is a paid app, because you definitely deserve compensation for your work, and continued support. Thanks! Can’t wait for the release.

  34. Nina says:

    Saw the video. Its so good! I can’t wait until it comes out and I would gladly pay for it. I’m definately going to tell my friends about it too. We’ve all been waiting for a facebook app that wasn’t a piece of crap.

  35. pope22 says:

    This question is a bit self serving, but any chance we’ll see the release tomorrow? I’m willing to wait an eternity, but I leave for a long weekend tomorrow to a cabin with no wireless service 😦

  36. Dean says:

    Video 2!

  37. todd says:

    Hmmm. This seems to be using info from x.facebook. [Or they both obtain info same way, same difference] Too bad, as the feed is painfully incomplete and doesn’t go very deep. So you may only see a few hours back. No idea why.

    NOT the developers fault, as facebook makes everyone use same feed it seems. I was in the hope he had dug his way into the live feed. But sounds like with facebook’s restrictions its just not doable on any app on any phone… My guess is they really need you on main site SOMETIMES to make money. Makes sense. If you never needed to go to main site it would kill the ad revenue.

    Well, it looks great! Will be buying for sure! It has a ton of features, I hate asking about the few ones it doesn’t…

    Can someone correct me – Only notifications now are: Birthdays, events and your status comments? So not messages, friend requests, photo comments and photo tags? Bummer.

    And most important, will these notifications pop all the time or just when you load app? It’s not noted and in video he got notifications when he opened app.

    I guess I could just wait a day or two and find out myself now couldn’t I 🙂

  38. Sam says:

    What’s all this about being a Paid App? I always thought this was going to be free. But I always wanted to contribute with donations through PayPal or something. I don’t think Aus has paid apps either.

    • Maff says:

      No one has ever said it would be free!

      • Sam Leung says:

        Meh, that’s all good. I just dunno how I’m going to get it onto my phone now as Australia (Optus) does not allow paid apps.

        Although I have ROOTed my phone and put Cupcake 1.5 on it so maybe I could just see if it somehow works. I doubt it though.

      • todd says:

        A buck and a half is nothing. Half a cup of coffee 🙂

        People need to get paid for their work. And with the pathetic facebook apps we have now [And Google or facebook have no plans to help] it’s nice someone stepped up and made it happen!

        I remember the old windows mobile days when apps were $10-$30! … $1.50 in pretty much free!

  39. randy says:

    Just really really hope there’s another alternative for us….

  40. Ray Nicolini says:

    I agree, there are alot of potential users that do NOT have access to Paid Apps on the Market.

    $1.49 price is great, that is not the issue< but how can we purchase the app,
    Will it be offered in other ways.
    Like an online store that offers paypal.

    Ray from Canada

  41. I forgot, when will it be in the app store for the users that are able to pay?

    This is a great app and I will be re-tweeting your programs on my Twitter account

  42. Ian says:

    Every time I try to generate a code (on my phone or laptop), Facebook keeps telling me that the application “does not exist or is disabled.” I previously had bloo but deleted it a long while back, and now I realized how much I hate the standard facebook app. Any help??
