    Zumobi stamps Twitter, Facebook widgets onto the BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    Zumobi, the innovative mobile widget company, today announced the launch of its application for BlackBerry devices. As the profile of Smartphone users expands to include more than just business users, Zumobi has developed its BlackBerry product to enhance the user experience by providing easy access to small “bites” of customized Web content via mobile device. The Zumobi platform, which is ad supported and gives a fully-branded experience to users, is an ideal medium for advertisers and content providers to directly reach consumers in an engaging and highly-targeted manner.

    With an already robust library of widgets (Zumobi calls them “Tiles”) to entice users of Windows Mobile and BlackBerry with news, sports, weather, entertainment, games and more, Zumobi now offers even more new Tiles for users including NPR, AP Olympics report, Major League Baseball as well as social media sites Facebook and Twitter. Users can also create their own Zumobi mobile widgets from just about any Web content with the new Tile Creation Wizard now available on Zumobi's website.

    (coincidentally, when trying to install the app, i had them send me the link via sms. once i clicked on it, the site told me that my device was not supported. i had to go to http://get.zumobi.com to get it to download )

    Hmm. I seem to be having problems with it. I downloaded it but when I run it it just sits there at the logo but never does anything.

    Any suggestions?

    I've seen it run smoothly on WinMo, but I think right now it's too much of a memory hog for BlackBerry. I'd give 'em a few patches to figure things out.

    I let it sit there for quite awhile and nothing happened but maybe I was just in to much of a hurry.
