Add BlackBerry contacts from your email with AddresSave

Comments

addresssave_blackberry_app

Our buddy Fabian just put out his latest app, AddresSave, which automatically takes contact info from your email and adds it to your address book.

As you probably know, there are other apps out there that do something similar such as Gwabbit. One thing I like about AddresSave, that isn’t included in Gwabbit, is the option to set a “block” list. With this option, you avoid unnecessary entries.

As this is a new application, it would be interesting to see how well it can sniff out redundancies over a long period of usage.

AddresSave is available for $1.49 until September 4th (normally $2.99).

DubMeNow contact exchange now includes location aware feature

21 Comments

DubMeNow began as a way for BlackBerry users to easily exchange business card information and they’ve recently added a new feature to their app.

The new feature is called ‘Locate’ and it gives you the ability to exchange contact information such as email, phone, address, photo, etc. and links to their social networks, including: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, blogs and more using their location.

The Locate feature should be a hit with users at a conference or venue that they know they’re going to want to exchange information with the people around them.

Included in the latest update are some new improvements as well including:

  • Users can add a photo to their contact info, and include social networking information such as Twitter handles, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr accounts, blog URLs and much more.
  • Users can send a LinkedIn invitation along with their contact info.

To download DubMeNow, visit http://m.dubmenow.com from your BlackBerry Browser, or find it free on App World.

Enterprise-grade address book Sensobi beta – 100 invites!

15 Comments

sensobi

Sensobi is an address book for enterprise professionals. The address book will keep detailed information about your contacts including when you last spoke and what it was about.

The developers of Sensobi have worked hard to integrate it seamlessly with your BlackBerry. You can do anything with Sensobi that you can with your existing address book. If you add/edit/delete a contact in Sensobi or the default address book, it will reflect the changes in the other. If you sync your contacts with your PC Desktop Manager or Microsoft Exchange, Sensobi will pick up those changes as well.

The application is currently free and in the next few months, the company will be launching a premium version as well. The app currently works with OS 4.2 or higher (i.e., any that support App World), with the exception of the BlackBerry Storm. Storm support is coming soon.

Sensobi are giving BlackBerry Cool readers 100 invites. Just go to sensobi.com/form/bbcool and use the passcode bbcool.

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!

12 Comments

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!
