Dropbox for BlackBerry now working on BlackBerry 7 devices

September 6th, 2011


Like most times when new devices arrive, there is typically a little bit of lag from when the devices release and apps get updated. Such is the case for Dropbox for BlackBerry. When the Bold 9900 and 9930 arrived on the scene Dropbox would load up but only to a blank screen.

The following are the main features of Dropbox:

New features:

  • Security passcode
  • Save email attachments to Dropbox

This build resolves:

  • Issues on 9900 & 9930 devices (BB OS 7 support for other devices should be working fine)
  • Bug on thumbnails screen where only a few thumbnails were loaded
  • Performance issues (more work to be done here)
  • Various design tweaks

Known issues we’re working to resolve:

  • Passcode is not engaged when you hit the button to turn off the screen (only when you leave the app)
  • Cached files are re-downloaded unnecessarily
    I guess you will be interested in Dropbox compatibale with Blackberry OS7.

Research In Motion Introduces the New BlackBerry Bold 9900 Smartphone in Hong Kong

September 5th, 2011

Today i learned that Research In Motion (RIM) today announced plans to launch the new BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 smartphone through authorized carrier partners and retail channels on September 9 in Hong Kong.

I believe many BlackBerry users have learn more about the New BalckBerry Bold 9900,but today i still want to share the truly outstanding smartphone that features both amazing performance and a stunning design with you. Built on a new, performance-driven platform powered by the BlackBerry® 7 operating system, it is also the thinnest BlackBerry® smartphone yet at only 10.5mm, and the first to offer the perfect union of an amazingly effective keyboard and brilliant touch display.

Next generation BlackBerry browser
The BlackBerry 7 operating system introduces a next generation BlackBerry browser with a significantly faster, more fluid web browsing experience that is among the best in the industry. Combining the dramatically improved performance of the advanced WebKit browser engine together with powerful hardware enhancements, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone delivers browsing results that are up to 40% faster than BlackBerry® 6 based smartphones and up to 100% faster than BlackBerry® 5 based smartphones*. Additional enhancements to the next generation BlackBerry browser have also optimized zooming and panning for smoother web navigation and streamlined HTML5 performance for incredible gaming and video experiences.

Liquid Graphics
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 features Liquid Graphics™ technology, combining a dedicated high-performance graphics processor with a blazingly fast CPU and stunning high resolution display to deliver a highly responsive touch interface with incredibly fast and smooth graphics. In addition, the smartphone features a brilliant display, with an eye-popping 287 dpi, that delivers crisp, stunning visuals.

Increased productivity
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 includes a number of pre-loaded applications for increased productivity and collaboration right out of the box. The Premium version of Documents To Go is now included free of charge, offering users powerful document editing features as well as a native PDF document viewer. In addition, BlackBerry® Balance (announced May 2, 2011) is also included, allowing users to enjoy the full BlackBerry smartphone experience for both work and personal purposes without compromising the IT department’s need for advanced security and IT controls.

Improved social experiences
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 comes with the newest release of BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger) which now extends the real time BBM experience to a range of other apps. These ‘BBM connected’ apps can integrate the popular functionality of the BBM service and offer users the ability to interact with their friends from within the app itself. The updated Social Feeds (2.0) app has been extended to capture updates from media, podcasts, and favorites all in one consolidated view. The new Facebook® for BlackBerry smartphones (2.0) app introduces features like Facebook chat and BBM integration that makes it easier for users to connect with their Facebook friends in real time.

NFC enabled
The new BlackBerry Bold 9900 is also the first BlackBerry smartphone to include built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), a new technology that is enabling many new and exciting capabilities, including the ability to pair with NFC-enabled accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone.

How to create your own BlackBerry Avatar!

September 1st, 2011

Avatar Builder Avatar Builder

Have you use this app on your BlackBerry? Today I would like to provide an overview of how to install the Avatar Builder app on your BlackBerry smartphone and showing you several ways you can share your avatar with friends and family.

Part One – Installing Avatar Builder

Before you can install Avatar Builder, there are a few things you’ll need to check first:

1. Are you using a BlackBerry smartphone that is supported?
2. Are you using the required BlackBerry® Device Software version?
3. Are you located in a supported country?

All of this information can be found on the Avatar Builder page that’s available in the BlackBerry App World desktop storefront. If you don’t know which version of BlackBerry Device Software version you are using.

Provided you meet the requirements to use Avatar Builder, the next step is to download it from BlackBerry App World. You can install it using the BlackBerry App World application on your BlackBerry smartphone and by searching for Avatar Builder, or by visiting the BlackBerry App World for each application linked below. If you cannot find Avatar Builder while using BlackBerry App World on your BlackBerry, make sure you meet the requirements that are listed in the BlackBerry App World desktop storefront page for the Avatar Builder app.

  • Avatar Builder Guys Edition
  • Avatar Builder Girls Edition

Note: You can install both the Guys and Girls version of the Avatar Builder in case you want both as well.

Part Two – Creating an Avatar

It’s time to unleash your creativity! After launching Avatar Builder for the first time, you’ll be able to create, view and edit your avatars.

Avatar Builder

If you select Create, you’ll be presented with the above screen that allows you to select the item you’d like to customize, such as your hair style, eyes, and accessories of course (+1 for headphones!). To change or remove something you’ve set, all you need to do is select the item you’d like to remove, and then either click on the item you’d like to replace it with or click the red X that appears on the right to remove it completely.

Avatar Builder

When you are finished customizing your avatar, click on the green arrow or the menu key to save it. You also have the ability to create a random avatar by clicking on the red dice in the top right corner. Don’t forget that you can also access several options while creating your avatar by selecting the Menu key. Within this menu, you’ll be able to do things such as resetting the avatar that you are currently creating.

Part Three – Displaying and Sharing your Avatar

The first thing I did after creating my avatar was set it as my BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) display picture. To do this, complete the following steps:

1. Open BlackBerry Messenger, press the Menu key and select “View My Profile”.
2. Press the Menu key again and select “Change Display Picture”.

3. Select “Picture Library” and click on the avatar you’d like to use.

4. Specify how you’d like to crop your avatar, then press the Menu key and select Crop & Save.
