The developers behind PocketDay let us know that the app has been updated to version 7.1 (exclusively for OS 5 and OS 6). The latest version adds Facebook integration, and they have discontinued the personal edition of PocketDay and now offer the Professional version at a new cost of $9.95. For those who haven’t heard of the app, PocketDay is a Today Screen on steroids. The app gives you immediate access to important streams of content such as calendar events, RSS, weather and more. In the latest version, features include:
- Now with Facebook integration in addition to Twitter!
- New Title Bar now shows every notification the main BB home screen does (OS 6 only)
- New Toolbar at the bottom of the PocketDay Screen launches Profiles, New (Event, Task, Email, Text, etc.), Messages, BBM, Address Book, Browser, Camera and PD Favorites (Touch screen Devices Only)
- Clicking on the Title Bar shows a new System Status window with a new Toolbar (Device Lock, Manage Connections, BB Options, Search, PD Options) – Touch Screen Devices Only
- New Context Menus available for all PocketDay sections (OS 6)
- New Favorites Feature allows users to create Favorite Contacts, Apps and Web Links (web links can be added to PD from the BB Browser as well)
- Pressing the right side convenience key from within PocketDay opens the Favorites screen and cycles through the views (Contacts, Apps, Web links)…great for one handed quick access to functions
- Clicking on email now launches the BB message app directly for standard functionality (OS 6)
- Facebook, Twitter and RSS News feeds now use the built in parsers for increased performance (OS 6)
The new PocketDay version is available in Blackberry App World or directly for OTA download at pocketday.com/ota.htm.
