Hippopost Mobile. Send FREE postcards directly from your BlackBerry!

Sounds too good to be true right? Select a picture from your BB, add a message, pick a contact from your address book, choose a sponsor, hit send and bam! Your picture will be uploaded, printed on a REAL postcard (with your chosen sponsor's name on it), and mailed to the recipient!

I've sent 3 to my home address for my wife and kids and I was very surprised at the quality and speed of delivery.

They're able to do it because of the sponsors. Mistubishi and Expedia foot the bill for printing and mailing in exchange for space on the front and back of the postcard. Its pretty unobtrusive though. I've also heard that they have improved speed of delivery and increased the picture size.

Check out the pics above of the app on my 8900 and one of the actual postcards.

I think its a great idea and the app works flawlessly. Check it out at App World or if you have a Storm, get it here: http://mobile.hippopost.com/

Facebook 1.7 Now Available!

Facebook for BlackBerry has been updated yet again and the change is actually noticeable.

The most important improvement is News Feed Support. Its looks more like the current FB on a computer browser.

At first, I thought this was kind of a rip-off cause I liked the status update filter which only showed status updates of friends and none of that other, mostly useless stuff. BUT if you look at the top where it says News Feed, its actually a drop down menu with these other options: Status Updates, Photos, Links.

I like where this is going. This version still supports the calendar and contact linking which is a great feature.

It is available for download at App World or here: www.blackberry.com/facebook.

BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 Now Available for Download!!!

I'm installing the newest version of BBM right now. 5.0 has many improvements on previous versions.
Download it now on App World!
Here is some more info from BGR (http://www.boygeniusreport.com/):

The new BlackBerry Messenger includes a barcode scan to add contacts to your BlackBerry. Blackberry messenger 5.0 features a proximity sensor which will tell you how close you are to your friends, assuming of course, that both Berry’s were set to share location. Directly on the home screen, messenger contacts can be placed.

And of course, there is that ultra-cool bar code feature. It also provides PIN barcode scanning. And it will permit you to add your friend by just entering their PIN. Other features include threaded SMS support.

Blackberry messenger 5.0 New features include:

Avatar support — set your own avatar using the Camera or saved photo on your device (this is displayed locally as well as shown next to your Messenger name on your friend’s buddy list)

GPS location integration — you can now set permissions so friends can always see your location, have to request it each time, or never can see it

Proximity sensor — we’re guessing this will let you know if you’re within a certain distance of friends (pending, of course, you’re both set to share locations freely with each other)

Set conversation subjects — this will allow you to organize your convos on the main Messenger screen and label them with subjects to keep track of all your conversations

Homescreen support — you can pin/sticky actual Messenger contacts directly to the homescreen for easy access!

Sounds sweet to me! I'm rebooting now, anxiously awaiting the chance to try out this sweetness!
Remember, you can get it free at App World. Enjoy!
