Conclusions from selling an application on BlackBerry App World

Although this is my first post for BlackBerry Cool, let me start by saying, “This is not my first rodeo!” My company REGARD is the longest standing BlackBerry partner dating back to 1998 when BlackBerry was still a seasonal fruit. Over the past dozen years, there are few products or services in the BlackBerry business ecosystem that we haven’t sold or at least tried selling. In the late 90’s, we configured farms of desktop redirectors before BES, Lotus Notes to Exchange connectors, installations, massive deployment projects, upgrades, BES Admin & Help Desk training, colored holsters, accessories, T-support, R-Support, BES licenses, CAL licenses, email & BES hosting, custom app development, 3rd party apps…you name it…REGARD has been there and done that!

In some cases, we sold products because there was a need and RIM had not yet come up with a solutions. In other cases, we sold competitive products because RIM dropped the ball. Which brings me to the BlackBerry App World!

It is no secret that the latest tech Gold Rush is “mobile apps!” Being an opportunist, and having one of the best BlackBerry app development teams in the business, REGARD quickly developed version 1.0 of a wine vintage lookup app to sell up on the new BlackBerry App World.

R-Vintage Lookup for BlackBerry is a first in a series of wine enthusiast utilities from REGARD Solutions. With the free trial version of this app, you can see vintage ratings by country, region and varietal, thereby increasing your changes of selecting a fine wine from a wine list.

If you’re one to frequent nice restaurants, and you’re always looking to pair the meal with a potential winner, this app is for you.

In the latest updates to the product, R-Vintage Lookup 2.0 includes:

  • Many look and feel enhancements with new graphics and easier to read.
  • Release of a Storm specific version with slide navigation between years.
  • Non-storm version when drilled in specific region vintage, quick keys “n” & “p” to navigate to next and previous vintage.
  • Make a comment on a specific vintage.
  • Read comments of other users on a specific vintage.
  • Thumbs up & Thumbs down to denote if you think the region experts rate is right or wrong.
  • See thumbs up and thumbs down totals by other users.

As you can see, this application only gets better as the number of users increase. If you think you are a Regional Expert, contact REGARD and you can apply to be one of their experts.

As an early registrant to R-Vintage, REGARD would like to offer R-Vintage Deluxe v2.0 when released later this month, for $2.00 (regularly $2.99).

Until then, enjoy the trial from this link or in App World. Or visit http://www.regard.com/rv from your BlackBerry device.

I got tipped off by a friend at WES about a cool app called R-Vintage by REGARD that is perfect for wine enthusiasts. This free app will allow mobile wine lovers to do a quick vintage ratings look-up by country, region and varietal increasing the chances of picking a winner from the wine list.

This free version provides static lookup back to the year 2000. In addition to numeric ratings, you receive a Drink/Hold recommendation vintage by vintage. A premium version will be released soon to provide dynamic lookup and other must-have features for wine lovers.
