WICKSoft is a veteran company in the world of 3rd party BlackBerry apps. The company has been around for 4 years now, and has become the leader in SharePoint and Exchange integration on the BlackBerry.
Recently, WICKSoft launched a very powerful and exciting new calendar sharing solution, WICKSoft MoreCalendars, that is going to make some big waves in both the public and private sectors.
Traditionally, the BlackBerry has focused on personal information— PIM. Yet many organizations, using Microsoft Exchange or SharePoint, often share access to things like calendars.
Let’s look at two examples, which many of us can relate to – delegate calendars, and shared calendars:
- Delegates are when one person has access to another person’s calendar and is something built in to Outlook on the desktop. For instance, an executive assistant might have delegate access to an executive’s calendar so that they could check for availability and sometimes even schedule appointments on behalf of the executive.
- Shared, public, and group calendars. This could be something like a tradeshow schedule, a project planning calendar, a corporate events calendar, or even just the schedule for a meeting room in the company. Shared calendars are something also supported by Outlook, usually called Public calendars, and also by SharePoint.
The Biston theme has a cool wheel-style dock with 9 user defined icons on the homescreen, nice big battery and signal meters and a Today preview for your calendar and messages. Fonts are customizable as well, and you can even change the menu font. This theme also includes what Hedone calls DFK (Double Function Keyboard), which is basically a set of custom shortcut keys which are good to get familiar with. More information on DFK available from their site.

The BlackBerry Bold 9650 is basically the Tour 2, but rebranded and launched as a Bold series device. The story seems to be that when the “Tour2″ was leaked soon after the launch of the original Tour, users started to complain about an update being worked on so soon after the original device was launched. The sentiment at the time was a slight resentment at the fact that Tour owners just bought a device without WiFi, and here was a new Tour with WiFi and a trackpad (something all Tour owners would have loved). In response, RIM seems to have changed the branding of the device over to a Bold, and probably pushed a Tour update down the pipe. Regardless of the branding, this is a Tour in my opinion, but I’ll refer to it as a Bold for SEO purposes.
