    Post BBlocal not so local

    So I downloaded BBlocal OTA, and like most of these kind of Apps it uses your BB browser to relay information. While in therory this would be a great tool, it's just a tad slow to be truly useful. SMS Google is quicker.

    Another thing you should know is that BBlocal is not so local. Only major cities apply. So I am out seeing as I am in the Harrisburgh area of Pa. If you live in NY, LA, Chicago, etc... download and give it a shot. Let us know what you think.

    Worked out decently for me. I used it in conjunction with Berry 411. Use 411 to look up addresses then plug it into Google local. It helps to enter the zip code instead of the city. Got me where I was going last night.

    I removed it once google local was available. And it worked for me today when we got lost. Google that is.

    Google local is awesome! No more having to print directions anywhere. I went out today and found everything with just google local.

    Yeah I had trouble with google local at first. But when I needed it today it worked like a charm.
