    PocketMac update supports Entourage and iTunes

    Comments

    AppleMac users rejoice! Entourage 2008, designed to emulate much of Microsoft Office, can now support syncing for BlackBerrys released as of May through PocketMac. Devices running OS 4.5 reportedly work like a charm for getting contacts, tasks, and calendar items off your Mac and onto your BlackBerry via Entourage. iTunes support is also in there, although it’s kind of funny that PC users got the iTunes Media Sync first. This is pretty awesome for Mac users everywhere, considering the complete lack of love they tend to get from RIM. Hopefully this will keep enough of them from going with the iPhone instead… Hey, you can always make your BlackBerry look like an iPhone with themes like iBerry in Today, Icon and Zen styles. Head on over to the PocketMac site to download version 4.1.25.

    Vlingo launches software for BlackBerry

    Comments

    You’ve seen some of their fine white label work with Yahoo!, but Vlingo’s going it alone with their new application which promises to control pretty much everything on your BlackBerry through voice. All BlackBerrys come built in with a voice dialling app, but Vlingo is going to do a lot more than just that… You’ll be able to text and e-mail by dictation, open applications like Calendar and Maps, search your address book, and make web searches using Vlingo. One very cool feature Vlingo’s packing is Note2Self, where you can pull the classic “Note to self: Pick up laundry. Groom cat. Begin plans for global domination”, which then get tacked onto your tasks, or sent to yourself as an e-mail or text. Super-awesome. I’m really excited about the possibility of third-party apps plugging into Vlingo, too. Tune in to our next podcast to get the full down-low on the new software.

    Click this link to download Vlingo for free or head to m.vlingo.com on your BlackBerry.

    WES Exhibitor Spotlight: REXwireless

    Comments

    REXWireless logoideaMatrix from REXwireless got top marks when we reviewed it just over a year ago. The software allows you to collect your numerous ideas in a central location, as well as categorize and sort them based on whatever criteria you want. todoMatrix works similarly, except with your important tasks and objectives, and with those of the team under you. For companies, they’ve got software like referenceMatrix and knowledgeMatrix, which allow you to distribute and keep track of important materials. A little something for everyone, and definitely something to check out at WES.

    StudentBerry helps berry-carriers hit the books

    Comments

    StudentBerryStudentBerry has been recently released, now letting go-getter academics keep close tabs on assignments and classes. Having been an arts student, I don’t know a damn thing about hard work or diligence, but surely there are some more business-like kids out there packing BlackBerrys and wanting to stay on top of their studies. Although it’s little more than a tweaked task manager, having things changed just enough for the student life makes it a nicely tailored piece of software. In the long run, there’s plenty of opportunity for close synchronization with BlackBerry’s native address book, calendar and tasks application. More info over here.

    Review: Mentat

    Comments

    Mentat is a lightweight task management system based on the growingly-popular Getting Things Done philosophy. BlackBerry software is paired up with a web client to help organize tasks into categories, assign them to particular people, update status, leave comments, and plenty more. It’s a solid step up from the built-in Tasks application primarily by virtue of sharing a daily agenda with others and being able to communicate about those projects. There are some basic things that Tasks has that would be really great to see in Mentat, but it’s still in beta and features are being added on an ongoing basis.

    Let’s take a closer look…

    Review: bThink

    Comments

    bThink LogoThis week, we’re looking at bThink from Perceptus, a light program for your BlackBerry designed simply to provide snoozable reminders with direct access to associated contacts’ e-mails and phone. BlackBerrys come preloaded with plenty of personal information management apps, like Tasks, Calendar, and Memopad - that really covers the big bases, and should take care of most people’s needs. That’s why bThink caught our eye; it was trying to bring something new to the PIM table. In a nutshell, bThink lets you create e-mail, call or blank reminders which link up with your Address Book and Tasks.

    Let’s see how busy this bee is…
