As the year draws to a close, we are taking a step back to see the year in review. While our apps have been in the making for three years, we launched our first BlackBerry consumer product in August 2009 (Wicked). Then two more in September 2009 (MyListy Pro, DulyNoted Pro). And our web app (for MyListy Pro + DulyNoted Pro) just before BlackBerry Developer Conference in November 2009.
Here are some press accolades we have gotten for these efforts -
TORONTO-September 1, 2009-The BlackBerry Partners Fund today announced that Wicked Blog App (by ScreamingToaster LLC), e-Mobile Today Professional Edition (by e-Mobile Software, Inc.), Unsynced Music Player (by Unsynced Inc.) and AFP Mobile News (by Handmark — in partnership with AFP) are the third set Finalists in the 2009 BlackBerry Developer Challenge. To date, a total of 12 (of 16) Finalists have been selected by a panel of judges based on the following criteria: compelling product or service; clearly defined value proposition and technical execution.
The lowdown: Finally! This app is a simple and easy way for users to write blog entries with their BlackBerry devices. Custom-designed for WordPress users, Wicked Blog App not only lets users update blogs with text but also gives them.
This is where we highlight just a few of our many awesome customers and how they use our technology to improve their digital lifestyles. If you are a customer, and would like to share the unique ways in which you use your ScreamingToaster apps, please contact us and we will post it here.
You may remember our review of ScreamingToaster’s Wicked Blogging App back in September. I recently got the chance to meet the ScreamingToaster team — Nazmul and Izabel Idris — and they’ve got some big things in store for BlackBerry and Android fans (stay tuned to Gear Diary to get a full rundown!). One recent update has been the release of a Web Application for their popular MyListy Pro and DulyNoted Pro mobile apps. So, you ask, what is the big deal of having a web app for two existing BlackBerry/Android apps? The key is collaboration and usability. Geared towards the “prosumer” customer who uses their smartphones for both business and personal use, the application can be running on multiple devices and computers simultaneously. Your data is stored in “the cloud” so you never have to worry if you upgrade devices or end up having to reload your smartphone OS. As soon as you log in to your account, all of your settings and information is restored.
I’ve never heard a toaster scream, but if I did, I would make sure the event was duly noted. See what I just did there? DulyNoted is available for BlackBerry smartphones running OS 4.6 or higher, and will take up 548 KB. On DulyNoted style, I’m going to begin as the application begins:
“Starting Reactor Core…Initiating Launch Sequence…Activating Awesomeness”
Wicked is a WordPress application for the BlackBerry, so its most basic raison d’être is pretty obvious: Blog! From your BlackBerry! Using WordPress! Post-related functionality includes using Search and Filter to navigate your way through posts or comments, Spell Check, Auto Text, Copy, Paste, etc. But as ScreamingToaster stresses, it’s more than just a mobile blogging platform.
Para postear con WordPress por ahora esta es, a mi parecer, la primera apuesta seria de un desarrollador, claro está que lo tienen mal en su camino ya que por ahí anda el desarrollo oficial del cliente de WordPress, siendo el mismo gratuito. A su favor es que en un futuro será multipltaforma de Blogging, soportando Tumblr, Blogger, etc… y aunque es un cliente para postear incorpora otras funcionalidades sociales, como un cliente de Twitter, podemos compartir nuestra ubicación, una lista de tareas, etc…
Compared to the official WordPress app, Wicked is ahead with its features and stability. Of course, the official WordPress app is still in beta testing so we could see a lot of improvement on their end as well. The good thing about there being two WordPress apps is that they’ll both be working to be better than the other, improving the experience for the end-users (everyone else) along the way.
