When we told you back in June that Whrrl had come to Blackberry, people were excited. It’s hard not to get excited over a LBS-based social networking application that combines mapping and micro-blogging technology for discovering and sharing local information on people, places, events and experiences. A few days ago software Developer Pelago announced BlackBerry Bold support for Whrrl, so make sure to check it out! Be forewarned however, Whrrl only works for now in the U.S. To download Whrrl, point your BlackBerry Browser to:
Hey, 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!
