    PinStack Week in Review:Smartphone News, Reviews for November 15, 2009

    Advertisement



    Happy Monday! I'm still settling back in from a very exciting week at the BlackBerry Developer Conference, hosted here in sunny San Francisco. With double the attendance as last year's first ever, I have to say the atmosphere was electric. It's really great to see that RIM took notes this past year and has listened to the developers/smartphone users. With announcements like the new Theme Studio, a partnership with Adobe and OpenGL, you can expect some major awesomeness this coming year from BlackBerry app/theme developers.
    T-Mobile users who have been patiently awaiting the official launch of the new BlackBerry Bold 9700 ... the wait is over. Reports are in that you can walk on down to your local store or order online, as of today. AT&T subscribers will have to wait an extra week (according to our sources). Do you already have your Bold in hand? I can't wait to see the reviews start pouring out.

    Shazam Encore Debuts on App Store
    Shazam, today announced the launch of its new Shazam Encore app on the App Store. Shazam has been a phenomenal success on the App Store, with over 10 million downloads to date, and Shazam Encore app will make it even easier for iPhone and iPod touch users to learn more about the music they love and go on a greater music journey than ever before. “Since our launch on the App Store, Shazam has achieved a huge following with iPhone and iPod touch users and is now one of the most popular music apps in the world,” said Andrew Fisher, CEO of Shazam. “We have listened to our iPhone and iPod touch users and have created a new app which answers their requests to take them on an enhanced music journey that will change the way music lovers experience and learn about music.”

    Google Latitude, now with Location History & Alerts
    Since the launch of Google Latitude earlier this year, we've been getting a lot of feature requests. One of the most popular ideas was for Latitude to keep track of location history, allowing you (but not your friends) to see where you've been at any point in time. Another popular idea was to notify you when you're near your Latitude friends so you can easily meet up or grab lunch. Today, we're happy to introduce both Google Location History and Google Location Alerts (beta) to let you do even more with Latitude.

    TwitterBerry Evolves: Introducing OpenBeak
    I have been following Jason from TwitterBerry (THE first Twitter app for BlackBerry) for quite some time. I was delighted to find out he was attending the BlackBerry DevCon and though we didn't get to meet up, Jason let me know he had a big announcement coming this week.
    OpenBeak is a mobile client for posting updates to Twitter. It works over the data network, so you don't need to use SMS. OpenBeak is the evolution of TwitterBerry, and gives a name that allows the app to grow beyond both the Twitter platform and BlackBerry smartphones.
