- Gist For BlackBerry Updated
  • Gist For BlackBerry Updated To v1.7.0 - Brings New Features And More

    Most of us may know/have heard of Gist because of the PlayBook's new Contacts app in OS 2.0, but they are also a fairly popular app on BlackBerry smartphones as well. Gist for BlackBerry enables you to access all of your contacts in one place and see updates for each contact from various sources including email, social networks and other online content.

    Their app has been updated, it's been a little while, and is now available in App World. Below are more details from Gist's Blog about what's new with this release:

    Overall Account Performance & Reliability

    The Gist for BlackBerry app received major performance and reliability improvements this release. You will notice a significant increase in speed and reliability upon the initial load of contacts from various sources (Contacts app, Calendar app, email, Twitter, and Facebook) and pulling all of their social information and news from the web.

    We now pull new contacts from your social accounts into Gist more often. So you will see a new Facebook friend or someone you’ve followed on Twitter appear faster in your Gist account.

    The “Get the Gist” option from the Contacts and Calendar apps is not only faster, but also more reliable. The app is also much faster when navigating the tabs within a contact profile.

    New Features

    The “Get the Gist” feature now works on contact groups in the BlackBerry Contacts app. Simply open the Contacts app on your BlackBerry, highlight the group, press the BlackBerry menu button on your device and select “Get the Gist”. The Gist app will open displaying the list of people in your contact group. From here you can easily navigate profile information and social updates to learn more about the people in your group.

    Bug Fixes

    We received many requests from our users for more detailed messages within the app. We have added these messages in this release. You will now be prompted to sign in, check your internet connection and such, instead of receiving a generic error message.

    What’s Next?

    Now that we are caught up on bug fixes, we will begin working on additional Gist for BlackBerry features! Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks and please suggest a feature here!
