TaskMailer for BlackBerry Makes Calendar Events from Emails


TaskMailer is a new app from S4BB that allows you to send tasks by email with an ICAL or VCAL task file attachment to any contact in your address book. Since version 2.0 it is now also possible to import such tasks into your BlackBerry task database right out of your BlackBerry Messages. While a $9.99 price tag is a little rich for my liking, the app has been discounted to $4.99 until February 19th which is a little more in my range.

BlackBerry Tip: Use Gmail to archive deleted BlackBerry messages


One of the downsides of being a BIS user is that you don’t get the ability to archive your deleted BlackBerry emails. Well there is a way to do it and it has changed my life.

If you’re like me, you have drunk the Cool-Aid and you’re using Google Calendar, Reader, Docs (which I’m writing this on right now) etc. Even though you love Google products, you can’t make the jump to Android because, when it comes to communication and getting things done, nothing is better than BlackBerry.

There have been rumors of a BlackBerry plugin for Gmail for ages, but it’s taking a long time and we’re not hearing much news about it. Until then, here is a solution for archiving your deleted BlackBerry emails using Gmail.

Create simple websites using your BlackBerry email


A new service, elog.com, can use an email from your BlackBerry to create a website straight from your device. With elog.com, you don’t need to register an account and you can create as many web pages as you want. All you have to do is send an email to elog.com and your webpage is created automatically.

elog.com is a simple and non-invasive service. Your website looks exactly like the email you send and it can serve a variety of purposes. To create your own web page, just send an email to newpage@elog.com. Your email can have pretty much anything you want in it and your new web page will look just like the email you send. You will be issued a public web page, e.g. 1993.elog.com, that others can view immediately. To update your web page with new content, just send an email to it, e.g. 1993@elog.com.

Currently, the system does not allow for attachments, but the company has told me that if the BlackBerry community were interested in such a feature, it would be easy to implement. Is this a feature you would like to see?

This is an example of the type of website you can currently create. It took about 10-15 minutes.

Top 5 sites for posting to social media from your BlackBerry


Your BlackBerry can be used in a wide variety of ways for interacting with social media and networks. One of these ways is via email. There are several sites out there that allow you to send media to them via email, and have that media pushed to your facebook and social networks. I’ve taken the time to roundup 5 of these sites; my favorite being Posterous.

1. Posterous.com

Posterous allows you to publish anything online via email and their facebook integration is terrific. I have it set so that every time I upload 3 or more photos, a new album is created in facebook. When there is less than three, they get published in a ‘Posterous’ album. In one particular album, I have over 250 pics!

Posterous also has integrations with Twitter most other social networks, so for me it has become my go-to option for online publishing. All you need to do to get started on Posterous is send an email to post@posterous.com.
