Collaboration app for BlackBerry now accepting beta testers



Bryte Software are working on an application that I’m personally really excited about. They have begun the internal alpha testing on a new Basecamp portal specifically designed to work with Blackberry platform called “Kompass.” Kompass is the first Basecamp portal made to work on BlackBerry.

Just in case you’re not familiar with Basecamp, it is the world’s leading web-based project management application. They currently have over 3,000,000 users.

This has left many BlackBerry users (including myself) in the dark while iPhone developers create a multitude of apps. I even know of certain individuals switching to the iPhone or buying an iPod Touch specifically for the Basecamp applications.

Bryte Software and Kompass are beginning to accept applications for private beta testers at kompasshq.com.
