Ottawa is a great city for BlackBerry and smartphone development. RIM’s App World team is located in Ottawa, and being a capital city, there are plenty of BlackBerrys floating around. There is also a large talent pool for mobile in the city as well and some of those bright individuals got together to demo their latest smartphone applications. The event was hosted by Rob Woodbridge, former CEO of Rove and the more interesting half of BlackBerryCool Untether’d.

The App Showcase event was a success and after the jump you can read all about the presenters and what they’re doing in the space. Stay tuned for the next event, where there will be more local companies showing off their applications. If you have a similar event in your area, send details to BlackBerryCool and we’ll help promote these companies as well.

WICKSoft Introduces Enterprise Calendar Sharing With MoreCalendars

Comments

WICKSoft is a veteran company in the world of 3rd party BlackBerry apps. The company has been around for 4 years now, and has become the leader in SharePoint and Exchange integration on the BlackBerry.

Recently, WICKSoft launched a very powerful and exciting new calendar sharing solution, WICKSoft MoreCalendars, that is going to make some big waves in both the public and private sectors.

Traditionally, the BlackBerry has focused on personal information— PIM. Yet many organizations, using Microsoft Exchange or SharePoint, often share access to things like calendars.

Let’s look at two examples, which many of us can relate to – delegate calendars, and shared calendars:

  • Delegates are when one person has access to another person’s calendar and is something built in to Outlook on the desktop. For instance, an executive assistant might have delegate access to an executive’s calendar so that they could check for availability and sometimes even schedule appointments on behalf of the executive.
  • Shared, public, and group calendars. This could be something like a tradeshow schedule, a project planning calendar, a corporate events calendar, or even just the schedule for a meeting room in the company. Shared calendars are something also supported by Outlook, usually called Public calendars, and also by SharePoint.
