Manage media between BlackBerry and Facebook with Dazzboard

Comments

While your BlackBerry has an incredible amount of Facebook integration with the latest build of Facebook for BlackBerry, there are still a few issues with the UI and managing your media. For example, if you want to upload a picture to Facebook from your BlackBerry, you can only do so one picture at a time.

Dazzboard is a free online service that allows you to drag and drop media between Facebook and your BlackBerry. The service also supports a variety of other web 2.0 initiatives such as Flickr and YouTube.

The product is currently only for PC and users with Firefox 3.x.

Try Dazzboard for Facebook and start drag and dropping your media today.

If your BlackBerry isn’t connecting, make sure to use Mass Media Storage Mode.

Implementing Google Wave open source code on BlackBerry

Comments

While on the Wave, you get threaded conversations, drag and drop media sharing, easy blog publishing and relatively seamless communication with others.

The creators, Lars and Jens Rasmussen, were also the creators of Google Maps. The Google Maps software works really well on BlackBerry and Google Wave could just as easily run on BlackBerry as well. According to Lars Rasmussen, the mobile component of Google Wave required only an additional 5% in engineering. Google Wave for mobile is the same software as the desktop component, it is just another layer.

Currently, RIM is developing its own Collaboration software called BlackBerry Groups. The software is a simple way of sharing tasks, messages, location, chat, calendar and contacts. We’ve already seen an attempt at this software when BlackBerry Unite launched but the project had very little success.

Whrrl is coming to BlackBerry! Wait, what is Whrrl?

Comments

Whrrl LogoHey, more LBS/Web 2.0 news. I’m beginning to notice a trend. How do I know that this Whrrl for BlackBerry announcement is Web 2.0 related? Well, it’s about ‘mobile social discovery’, ‘user generated content’, and they spell the name of their application without any vowels. Just a handy heads up for all you old school BlackBerry users who aren’t on Facebook yet.

That’s right, Pelago announced support today of their mobile social discovery service for BlackBerry Pearl and Curve devices. Whrrl combines mapping and micro-blogging technology for discovering and sharing local information on people, places, events and experiences. The application is free to download, but is only available right now to people in the U.S., so post a comment BlackBerry Nation and let us know what you think.

Whrrl can be downloaded at www.whrrl.com. Web 2.0, baby!
