Accomplish the 100 Pushup Challenge with a BlackBerry App

Comment

The Pushups app for BlackBerry is a training regiment to help you reach 100 pushups. The app gives you a graph and encouragement to reach 100 pushups in a six week time frame. With only 30 minutes per week, this app is going to help you get more fit and reach triple digit pushups.

One feature that is missing from this app is Twitter integration. Ideally, the app would tweet each time you reach a benchmark of pushups. Also, at $6.99 (currently on sale for $3.99) the app is a little on the pricey side.

More information available about Pushups in our store.

BlackBerry vs iPhone App Usage: BlackBerry Higher During Workday

Comments

The latest report from Localytics suggests that BlackBerry usage is concentrated and higher during the workday, while iPhone app usage peaks around 9PM on weeknights. Localytics took this information from millions of phones in the US and Canada over 2 months.

The stats reveal much of what you would expect, including that iPhone owners use mobile apps more frequently on the weekend where usage is 40% higher than BlackBerry during the same time Monday through Friday. Mobile app usage for iPhone users peaks at 9PM EST during the week.

Blackberry mobile app usage is clearly higher throughout the workday and starts to peak at 7 pm EST, two hours earlier than the iPhone. There is also no statistically significant difference in the usage of BlackBerry apps on the weekend compared to Monday through Friday, unlike the iPhone.

Xobni preview BlackBerry app which is soon to be available

Comments

Here at the BlackBerry Developer Conference we got a sneak peek at the upcoming Xobni app for BlackBerry. The app features a ubiquitous search bar that is seamlessly integrated into your mail, contacts and social networks. The app gives you a great deal of data about each contact including basic contact information as well as updates from that contact’s social networks. The app will also show you possible connections from within these networks.

One of the most impressions features is the way Xobni organizes your contacts across all your email services. The Xobni demo showed how easy it is to take a common name, for which there could be tens of entries, and efficiently move between the Xobni app and your email. Also, for those names which could have multiple entries, Xobni uses a ranking system that means your most interacted with contacts are at the top.

Xobni isn’t currently available but it looks like they are very close to a launch. Stay tuned because this app looks great.
