This an impressive app release. BerryBlab, which recently hit shelves, is packing what you forum crawlers will go berserk for. It offers any vBulliten forums with the BerryBlab add on installed the opportunity to be viewed through a quicker more organized layout compared to the mobile view.
BerryBlab comes packed with all of the basics and then some. It allows all of the basic features. A small list of the features BerryBlab offers:
You can have multiple forums, which provides for easy access to each of your vBulliten forums (IE: Our very own BBOS).
You can easily navigate through the forum's contents. Working your way through the categories/posts hasn't been easier (Unless you're on your PC/Mac).
You can read and respond to personal messages.
You can view the latest posts.
Of course, the basics yet that is just a few of the features it offers. Granted this release is only Version 1 - it is still a highly anticipated app release. In the foreseeable future, I can't image people using mobile vBulliten forums anymore. This truly is one app that will pay back more than you payed.
The app sells for 2.99 in our BBOS store with a 5 star rating. Another excellent feat. that this app offers is that it works on a vast range of Blackberry's. It works on both keyboard (OS 4.5 and above, 8100 and above) and touch screen (OS 4.7 and above) phones! BerryBlab also has a free version which you can download by going to vBulletin BlackBerry App | BerryBlab.com from your Blackberry browser.
As far as i know it is not compatible with all forums, but only the ones that have some extra extension installed that gives access to BerryBlab.. Please correct me if i'm wrong, since i tried their free beta version and not this final one...
You're 100% correct. It's not difficult though, if you have a forum you want to be able to view - just contact the administrator. Most forum administrators will abide considering they want a bigger community and this helps them to expand.
The app is okay. But the one thing that ruined it for me was the lack of basic Blackberry shortcuts and functions. Such as double spacing for a period.
I've been using this for 2 days now & it does have all the regular blackberry shortcuts, ie, double spacing for periods, spacebar for next page, etc.... Maybe you were using an earlier version of a beta? Either way, this application is really great for us "forum crawlers"!!!
