WICKSoft Introduces Enterprise Calendar Sharing With MoreCalendars

Comments

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.

Late Mate Randomizes Your Clock So You’re Never Late

Comments


YouTube Link

Late Mate is a funny app that aims to stop you from being late for appointments. The idea is very simple: people who are late generally like to set their clocks a few minutes fast in order to trick themselves into leaving a little bit earlier rather than later. This inevitably doesn’t work because they know their clocks are set ahead and end up leaving later anyways. Late Mate prevents you from doing this by randomizing the clock 0 to 10 minutes fast throughout the day. This way, you never know if your clock is perfectly accurate, or 10 minutes fast, meaning you’re either right on time or a little early.

Late Mate is a simple app that makes you wonder whether 10 minutes is at all important anyways. If you’re so concerned with arriving within 10 minutes of when you said you would be somewhere, than you should probably shouldn’t be playing with the settings on the clock.

What do you think of the concept behind this app?

Calendar Pro Provides More Functionality for BlackBerry Calendar

Comment

The native BlackBerry calendar is a decent application but it’s fairly bare-bones. Calendar Pro by SBSH seeks to improve on the native BlackBerry calendar application by introducing features such as information tabs and color coding. The app also allows you to shift between daily, weekly and monthly views more easily, allowing your schedule to be a little more rich and useful. Calendar Pro also features a dedicated tasks manager, recurring items engine, category coloring and icons and more.

Currently, Calendar Pro by SBSH is around 60% off and selling for $5.99. Be sure to check out the feature set as it goes into great detail about the tweaks that may make your calendar more effective.

Tungle Looking for Beta Volunteers for New Blackberry App

Comments

Tungle, the slick cloud based scheduling tool has just tweeted that they are looking for beta testers.  To get in, email bb@tungle.com and include your Blackberry model and OS version.

For those of you not yet familiar with Tungle, it’s a great app that has proved indispensable to me and excels at solving the problem of cross-network scheduling of meetings.  A typical scenario is this:

  • I want to book a meeting with several people from 2 or more companies, which means I can’t see their calendars and they can’t see mine.
  • So I either decide that I’m ‘feeling lucky’, a la Google, and then send out meeting invites for a specific date and time, or I’ll start playing the ‘this date works for me…how about you?’ game.
  • Either method results in a series of wasted back and forth communications whose number is directly and exponentially tied to how many attendees will be in the meeting.
  • Eventually, through luck and determination, and lots of wasted time and effort we finally arrive at a date and time that works for all.

Tungle solves this beautifully by allowing the other attendees to either accept the meeting invite or propose different times.  It really shines when most (or all) of the attendees use Tungle as your Tungle calendar can sync with your other calendars (notably Outlook and Gmail with more to follow I’m sure) which means that you can very quickly find a specific time slot that works for everyone attending.

I’ve applied to the beta and will post a review after I get it and put it through it’s paces.
