Dipdive Launches Love Stories Feature in Partnership with BlackBerry

Comments

We’ve given Dipdive some pretty negative reviews here on BlackBerryCool because the social network just didn’t seem to offer much compared to the plethora of other networks any given person has already signed up for. The social network is geared towards artists, musicians and entertainers, who “share a socially conscious mentality.” You have to wonder who that excludes, Charles Manson?

Dipdive has recently announced “Love Stories” in partnership with BlackBerry, so that users can celebrate what they love to do. To create your own Love Story, head over to Dipdive and give it a shot.

Maybe if they keep getting money from RIM, Dipdive will become the new MySpace.

Hopefully This Isn’t Instagram for BlackBerry

Comment

instagram

Sean Percival, VP of Online Marketing at MySpace took a jab at BlackBerry by posting the above joke screenshot of Instagram for BlackBerry. Percival’s intent was to see how well a piece of content could go viral within the Instagram ecosystem, but it’s not very original. The joke is just a copy of the Angry Birds for BlackBerry screenshot that went viral a little while ago. MySpace is going to need a lot more in the way of creativity if it’s going to survive its almost certain plunge into obsolescence.

MySpace has been having its fair share of problems lately. The company has recently laid off around 40% of its staff, and there has been a continuous exodus of executives from the company to other ventures. The music-centric social network has recently redesigned itself as My[__] and focused its attention on socializing entertainment. My[__] wants users to register their favorite artists and entertainment, give recommendations and spend more time watching video and playing games on the site. But will all of this help the social network or is it dead in the water?

PicDial Uses Facebook and MySpace Profile Pictures for Caller ID

Comments

picdial

PicDial is a picture caller ID app that uses social networks to give a little more context to calls. The app is geared more towards users that don’t have social media applications on their device, so BlackBerry users probably aren’t the ideal market for this app. With a BlackBerry, you can easily set your contacts’ Facebook profile pictures to your caller ID, making this app not all that useful for users. On the other hand, there are a couple features such as the ability to backup your contacts, and select which of the Facebook/MySpace pics you want your contact to use is helpful.

More information about PicDial available on their site.
