Search the web in a new way with SnappySeeker for BlackBerry

Comments

The productivity wonks over at Iambic Inc. have come up with a way to make searching the web twice as efficient by essentially eliminating the need to go to a website before launching a search. They call it SnappySeeker, an app which allows you to narrow your searches by category (and correspondingly, by search engine) to help get you more accurate results. Though in a sense I’m often unimpressed by apps that merely extend the basic functionality of one’s device - this one simply saves you the time you’d ordinarily spend going to a particular website before searching, I really like apps that aim by design to accomplish operational success - through focusing on delivering only a few services (if more than one), but doing it well. SnappySeeker falls in both camps.

intelliberry-main-3

Makers of the popular Quick Pull and MessageScheduler have recently released IntelliBerry, a utility that lets BlackBerry users search their contacts, apps and files. Additionally, you can program shortcuts - Magic Words - into IntelliBerry that allow you to efficiently search the web for images, Wikipedia articles, books, and more. I’m fairly skeptical of universal search software, and I like using a variety of searches that are designed specifically for unique contexts. I’m not sure if it’s because I believe there is a void of excellent universal search software, or if I’m simply too accustomed to my ways. In any event, I decided to give IntelliBerry a try and in some ways, I was impressed; in others not so much.

Make your old Curve look like a brand new 8900

151 Comments

I haven’t taken to reviewing any themes because I’ve found so few that really satisfy me. But I recently stumbled across an eye-pleasing theme that changed all of that. The Curve 8900 Replica Theme by BNS Designs is sharp and clean, effectively turning your old curve - one you may thought of turning in for a new BlackBerry 8900 - into a fresh new device. Yes, it’s just the theme - you won’t magically find the wi-fi icon in the home tray (unless you already have that feature) - but it’s much more aesthetically pleasant than Telus’s OS 4.3 stock theme.

Solitaire Buddy Gold for the BlackBerry Pearl Flip Reviewed

Comments

Solitaire Buddy Gold

Solitaire is probably the only game I’ve wanted to play consistently for the last 15 years, and chances are many of you - especially those that grew up without a video game console - feel the same way. If you’ve been looking for a classic game that will keep you entertained for any given period of time, then you may be interested in Solitaire Buddy Gold by Nickel Buddy, maker of the popular game Marble Trap (which is similar to one of my all-time favorite games, Nintaii). Solitaire Buddy Gold is the company’s premium solitaire gaming app, offering about thirteen different games altogether, under one app-roof. They even have the courtesy to throw in a free trial.

Sweet.

Star Contacts for Blackberry v.1.0 for BlackBerry Reviewed!

Comments

Contact managers can be handy for those who need a little more dirt on their contacts, only to add it to a swelling Address Book. That’s precisely what Star Contacts by Sparkle Solutions Inc. is for. It’s a comprehensive address and contact management software. It can hold thorough Home, Business and Personal Information of your contacts, and offers users a better - a faster and more receptive - search engine than that of the Address Book that comes standard with every BlackBerry device. Though I’m often a skeptic when it comes to contact managers - they’re always trumpeting the “nicer, better, faster” mantra - I decided to give this one a try and was, in some instances, pleasantly surprised.

e-Mobile Contacts v.2 for BlackBerry Reviewed!

I have trouble getting away from my BlackBerry Address Book. As simple as this stock application is, as basic at it looks, it simply works. E-Mobile Software Inc. has come out with e-Mobile Contacts, an app designed to give you an at-a-glance view of all of your contacts, and the option of contacting those in your address book by e-mail, phone or SMS - depending on the contact information you have stored on your device. I was pretty excited to get my hands on an Address Book replacement because of all the possible benefits of the user interface, and the potential this holds for speeding up the endless search for contacts. And from what I’ve seen of e-Mobile Contacts, the UI looks pretty clean. Perhaps I won’t have to type Xela Zsang’s name every time I want to get to her info!
