    Don't you wish BlackBerry had an email notifier popup like the one you are used to in MS Outlook or Gtalk Notifier (Growl on the Mac). Stop wishing and get SmrtAlerts. With it, you can get critical information from your emails fast.

    With SmrtAlert, you can see who is emailing (with brief email body) while drafting another email, playing your favorite game or other tasks on your BlackBerry.

    • Fully Configurable - only see popup from the people matters to you.
    • Application filter - Prevents popup in specified apps (like phone app)
    • SPAM Blocker - Create Whitelist and Blacklist to filter emails and email popup. With Blacklist, you have the option to auto delete junk.
    • Visually Stunning design
    • No setup fuss. No pain. It Just Works!
    • Complete integration with the existing email program.
    • NEW - With Suspend Popup (for 3 mins) feature to prevent bulk popups after airplane mode

    You may remember during MWC 2011 RIM announced that BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 would be getting some new features. One of these features was the ability for 3rd party developers to integrate BBM into games, media, ect. The first to offer the integration is Telemap, thanks to the developer tools being launched last month. Telemap is a GPS service provider that powers apps from Orange, Telefonica, SFR, and other wireless carriers. The new function simply allows users to request and confirm location sharing through BBM, after which you can see where your contact is in Telmap and get turn-by-turn navigation directions to them. In addition to getting social on BlackBerry, Telmap has also recently added Facebook and Twitter functions to their Android GPS app. It's going to be interesting to see how far BBM integration will go for developers. And as always, we'll keep you updated on the latest.

    One of the big disappointments to many users of the PlayBook at launch was the lack of a native email app. Now, it looks like at least one third-party developer has been working on a solution. The app, which is called aMail has been submitted to App World and is currently waiting for approval. The aMail app comes courtesy of AiFlex and is noted as being a "native email for multiple accounts in one easy to use app." In terms of support, the aMail app offers support for any IMAP, SMTP and POP3 account and will come with preset configurations for Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail and Live accounts. AiFlex has even offered up a video of the aMail app in action while everyone waits to see if RIM will give it the thumbs up. We'll keep you posted on any changes.

    So, when I became a blogger for BlackBerryOS, I needed a quick way to access the site. Since I use Google Chrome, I decided to make a Google Chrome Application for BlackBerryOS. When installed, this app will display a shortcut to BBOS on your New Tab page, enabling you to easily access all the wonders that is BBOS.

    Firstly, you need Google Chrome installed on your computer. To install the app, simply download the .zip file I have included as an attachment, and as a Dropbox download link, then unzip it and drag the file to Google Chrome-which should be open-and click on yes when it asks you to continue. That's it! You now have a quick and easy way to access BlackBerryOS.com!

    UPDATED: Fixed a bug where the user is not logged in when accessing the page through the app.

    Tungle.me, a cloud-based scheduling application that syncs your calender items will all your social networking accounts and your calendar program, has been acquired by RIM today. Hopefully, this will lead the way to additional features in the BlackBerry Operating system, which will most probably be widely embraced. Tungle already has a BlackBerry application, available here, but they should now discontinue development on it, while focusing on integrating it within RIM's OS. Tungle currently supports Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, iCal/Entourage, Lotus Notes, LotusLive, Windows Live, and Yahoo!

    Today we are pleased to announce that Tungle has joined Research In Motion (RIM). We’re excited that the Tungle team is bringing their expertise in cloud-based, cross-platform, calendar management to the BlackBerry platform.

    Tungle is a leading provider of cloud-based calendar and scheduling services that makes it easy for users to share their availability and schedule appointments regardless of their choice of desktop, mobile or cloud-based calendar. Tungle connects users on Google, Yahoo!, FaceBook, TripIt, Plancast, Outlook, iCal, LotusNotes, LotusLive, and WindowsLive. If you are not already familiar with them you can find out more about Tungle at Tungle.me | Scheduling Made Easy.

    RIM is working with Hulu to bring Hulu Plus to the BlackBerry PlayBook after Hulu blocked BlackBerry PlayBook users from accessing Hulu.com on Thursday, just days after the tablet launched in stores. PC Mag and The Wall Street Journal report the same email statement from RIM on a resolution:

    "We are in conversations with Hulu to bring the Hulu Plus subscription service to BlackBerry PlayBook users."
    Rather bland and predictable statement, right? Hulu traditionally blocks non-desktop access on tablets, mobile phones, and set-top boxes in order to encourage users to subscribe to its new Hulu Plus service for $7.99/month. Perhaps we'll see a quick resolution to this conflict. We'll keep you updated on any changes.
