Xobni for BlackBerry just got a nice update adding support for the BlackBerry 6 operating system. Xobni is like your contact list on steroids, allowing you to take full control of your contact list. I have been using Xobni since it first came out in beta and with each update the application keeps getting better.

Xobni orders your contact list by order of importance, with the people who you talk to and email the most are at the top of the list. Xobni is a paid application and well worth the investment, it does have a free trial period so you can give it a good test drive before you decide to buy the application.

Here are some of the updates in the new release:

  • OS 6.x Support
    • Touching the Xobni bar or flicking up works on compose, reply and forward actions now work on OS 6x devices
    • Updated High-Definition icons
    • Touch scrolling enhanced for optimized scrolling experience
    • Editing is aware of virtual keyboard display and formats content shown on remaining screen
    • Add picture for contacts via camera
  • Multiple interface updates (including improved setup guide, keyboard shortcuts to options, contact detail UI update)
  • Key stability and performance improvements
  • Improvements for activation & trial related issues
  • Contact Extraction and contact edit improvements
  • All user preferences are maintained during upgrades
