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.

VPost by Vayyoo reviewed


I was given the opportunity to try out vPost by Vayyoo Inc. My first thoughts of this app were, Why didn’t RIM include this with their current OS’s? Vayyoo did a good job of filling the need. vPost sends messages as Emails and not multimedia messages (mms), so if you are used to sending pictures, video’s or voice notes via mms you’ll have to get your recipients email or carrier mms email address. vPost is available for 4.5 and 4.6 OS Blackberries, with Storm support coming in March. Installation from the Blackberry Cool store was straight forward and went without a hitch. After the vPost install was completed I was asked to allow permissions for Phone and GPS so naturally, I did. I was greeted with a screen that displayed the End User License Agreement. After agreeing I was asked if I wanted to register my device with Vayyoo. This is where you have the option to enter your activation code or take advantage of the free trial. Vayyoo helped us users out by including an Introduction screen that gives a brief description and quick tips prior to using the program.
