    Xobni Now Available on your Blackberry Device


    Do you have an overwhelming number of contacts in your device? Would it make your life easier if you had a utility app to help you manage those contacts? Xobni Mobile Contact Application is here to solve all your problems. Trust me, managing 379 contacts is not easy, I personally have been waiting for something like this. Xobni Mobile is like your Blackberry address book on steroids, it does it all!!!

    Xobni is a hard worker bee, always working to keep your contacts manageable. Xobni takes every email you receive directly or via CC, your sent mail and helps compile that into your contacts. With a very deep integration into the Blackberry OS, all of this complicated jargon is seamless and easy to use. For an additional fee Xobni Mobile has a service called Xobni Mobile One, which is able to sync your info to your Xobni Outlook. Could this app get any better???

    Features Include:

    • Email addresses for everyone with whom you communicate
    • Automatic phone number extraction
    • Access to contacts using Xobni within the email compose screen or in standalone application
    • Prioritized contacts using Xobni Rank, which lists contacts by how often you communicate with them versus alphabetically
    • Saving of Xobni profiles in the event of hard drive crash or lost phone
    • Quick access to valuable information, including:
      • One-click access to Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, including photos
      • Recent SMS, phone calls and emails exchanged, and shared appointments
      • Shared network of people
      • Ability to send your calendar availability to all contacts



    Pricing:
    • Xobni for BlackBerry standalone app: $9.99 one-time fee
    • Xobni for BlackBerry with Xobni One: $6.99 one-time fee + $3.99 recurring monthly fee
    • One-year of Xobni for BlackBerry with Xobni One: $39.90/year


    Generally speaking a utility feature/app would not get looked at twice with the pricing of this app, however I believe it sells itself. After I took a hard look at this app I feel there is enough value built into it, to warrant the higher then average cost. Although the service of Xobni Mobile One may not be for me I am getting my hands on the Mobile app.

    Let us know what you think!!!
    Are they shooting themselves in the foot with this pricing or can you deal with it, as I plan too?

    I don't see a free trial on the website. If you just purchase the app without the monthly subscription can you still sync contacts with Outlook via DM? I spent 15-20 minutes looking at the website, but I don't see an answer. If the program is truly wonderful, I wouldn't mind spending the $10.00, but I'm not going to get involved with a subscription. I sync my Tour and Outlook daily. I access contact information equally from both. If the ability to sync contacts with Outlook like the native app does is lost, I see that as a deal breaker. Any info would be appreciated. I don't want to throw away $10 to find out. Thanks

    I was fortunate enough to be an alpha tester for Xobni and I can tell you it is an excellent app.
    The best contact management app out there for the Blackberry right now.

    Purchased the mobile version and here's my mini review on my 9700 running .442:

    Xobni does not replace your native address book, it is separate. To use the app, you need to log in with your username and password each time you restart your BB. (It will save your user & pass but u still have to click login) From the point I clicked 'login' it took 2 minutes to pull all of my info. 300 contacts, 69 emails. (I used the stopwatch on my other BB) You pretty much have to stay logged in and run the app in the background; otherwise you would have to repeat the previous process whenever you want to use it. The way it gives you an overview of your interactions with each contact can be seen in the pic Jrod posted up top. For some reason it won't integrate my sms messages. The apps email functions do not work for me either. I can only read emails. You also have the options to open the RIM's native search function as well as schedule a meeting with a contact.

    When viewing a contact, if you click on Facebook, it takes 2-5 seconds to find the contact on Facebook so you have the option to view their profile. (You must have the contacts email address that they use for Facebook stored under that contact in your BB or it will not find them on Facebook.) It does not integrate with RIM's FB app. If you click on 'View Profile' it will bring you to the FB mobile site. I'm assuming LinkedIn works the same way.

    In addition to your BB contacts, Xobni will pull emails from others who are in your inbox and list them as contacts. If the email was sent with the senders name attached, it will list them by name which is nice. That comes in handy when composing an email from RIM's native message app. Xobni's contact list will automatically pop-up, so in case this person isn't in your BB address book, you don't have to use RIM's native search function to find them and then copy & paste their email address to compose. It saves a few steps.

    It has some other functions listed above which I did not touch on b/c they are pretty much self explanatory. I did not run Xobni long enough to see how it cooperates with my battery so I am leaving that out as well.

    We pull batteries, swap bezels, break contracts, and stay up all night. We change OSes like we change underwear. If our phones could make us fly, we still wouldn't be satisfied. We're cut from a different cloth. A better breed. We are BlackBerry.

    Still hoping for an answer. Will Xobni still sync via DM with Outlook if you don't subscribe to a monthly service? mfg:

    I dont think it will. That service is the Xnobi One service.

    Honestly though its not needed. You just open app log in and it recompiles...

    As far as syncing with outlook thru DM, don't think so. I choose not sync my BB w/ Outlook so I can't say for sure. Xobni doesn't remotely save anything though. If you delete your emails from time to time, and most of us do, Xobni will no longer list those ppl as contacts unless you physically entered them into your BB address book.
