LinkedIn for BlackBerry – CES 2010

Comments

With BlackBerry being historically such a business device, it’s only fitting that there be a proper LinkedIn application – the social network defined specifically for business. With the upcoming LinkedIn app you’ll be able to review profiles before a meeting, integrate LinkedIn contacts into your BlackBerry contacts and know when you’re receiving LinkedIn messages via a hip new icon. Hit up the video for more details.

Call Informer displays contact details before you answer a call

Comments

UPDATE: The link has been changed.

One thing I have noticed about the BlackBerry dev community, is that they’re great about making apps that improve the phone’s functionality, rather than just offer a party trick. Not that we don’t have our share of party trick apps, like Fabian’s whip, but there is so much more.

A good example of this is a new app called Call Informer. The app is designed to help sales people quickly identify and respond to incoming calls. Having contact notes available before you answer a call allows you to make informed choices about your response.

When you receive an incoming call from a contact in your address book, Call Infomer displays the following; Caller Name, Organization, Number (inc. type such as Home, Work, Mobile etc), Contact Notes (and previous call notes) and the date/time of the last time this contact called you and the date/time of the last time you called them.

You can update the contact notes right there or you can choose to send an sms to the caller and all of this can be done from one screen before you choose to answer the call.

Features:

* Information displayed on screen as call arrives
* Contact notes and time of last phone contact is displayed
* Update contact notes without having to leave screen
* Send sms to caller without having to leave screen
* Perform all actions before answering the call
* Allows you to make informed decisions about your call response

Call Informer is available for $9.50 or on a free trial.

Use your BlackBerry Storm as a level or ruler

Comment

This is a full review of an app called Storm Level Pro, made by Mobigloo. The point of Storm Level Pro is to transform your Storm into a fully functioning level and/or ruler, by using its accelerometer for accuracy. Interesting, right? Let’s do the break down; features include:

  • Calibration for maximum accuracy.
  • Level for both vertical and horizontal measures.
  • Automatically adjusts to portrait and landscape modes.
  • Includes two rulers, inches and centimeters.
  • Upon the Storm Level Pro’s first touchdown, on the device, installation is noticeably easy and complete, without any additional setting changes. You are instantly prompted to calibrate your device, which is done by simply finding a perfectly flat and level surface (ie a wall) and pressing the “calibrate” button on the screen. Once calibrated, your device is ready to be used as a level and/or ruler.

    e-Mobile Today Professional BlackBerry Storm Edition (v.1.2) Reviewed!

    Many of you may remember that I reviewed e-Mobile Today and e-Mobile Today Professional Edition roughly a month ago. Well, E-Mobile Software Inc. has come out with a special Storm Edition of their popular e-Mobile Today software, which comes in two versions: standard and professional. The features found in each version are more or less the same on other device versions, but I really liked the professional edition last time around so I decided to take a closer look at the same edition made specifically for the storm.
