A day in the life of a BlackBerry Storm power user


BlackBerry Storm

It’s 7:40am and my BlackBerry wakes me up to, The Killers – ‘Mr Brightside,’ thanks to the BBSmart Alarms Pro application. I fiddle around to unplug my Storm from the charger, swipe it unlocked using StormSlider and open up Viigo via QuickLaunch. With one eye open and the other one closed, I tap on ‘News & RSS’; After another 15-second sleep the channels are all updated and I read the newest headlines from BlackBerryCool, BerryReview, CrackBerry and CNN World. I find an interesting article and send it to Twitter via Viigo. While flipping through emails on the BlackBerry, I see one that has to get forwarded to another recipient – using Forward with Edit. Now I can still edit the forwarded message and send the corrected version.

Still half sleeping, I open up TwitterBerry to read the latest replies and update my status to: “Still in bed, let’s start this day slowly!” Now, it’s time to get up. I hit the shower, place the BlackBerry somewhere next to me and launch BerryTunes. I love listening to music while showering.

Now I’m ready to go! BerryWeather gets launched to see how the weather is going to be today. It’s going to rain so I grab a coat. I can’t decide what color of coat to wear so I open up Coin Toss and let the application make the choice. While leaving I look at the paintings hanging on the wall and realize that something is not right. I whip out my BlackBerry Storm again, launch Storm Level Pro and hold it against the picture-frame. The app tells me the pictures hangs ‘-2’ to the left, so I quickly shift it in position and rush out.

Free hotel reservation app available on BlackBerry App World



HRS.com, a European online hotel reservation portal, have announced the launch of a free application for BlackBerry that makes the hotel booking process easier than ever before. Business travellers will be able to search for and book rooms at over 230,000 hotels worldwide using the HRS.com application on their BlackBerry. The HRS.com application is now available for download on BlackBerry App World.

The HRS.com application provides business travellers with a simple way to find and book a suitable hotel whilst travelling, without the need to enter large amounts of information. Thanks to the GPS capabilities of BlackBerry smartphones (many models have GPS built-in), accommodations can be booked based on a user’s current location or the application’s Organizer function. When searching and booking hotels via the Organizer, users can also choose whether to use the address of one of the contacts in their address book or the venue of an appointment noted in their calendar. The booking confirmation can then be sent by either e-mail or SMS.

Alternatively, business travellers can use the GPS function to pull up a list of available accommodations on arrival at any new destination worldwide. Once the booking has been made, traveller’s can transfer the hotel information directly into their calendar or address book or display it on a Google map.

Check it out in App World and let me know what you think.
