Xobni Super Address Book for BlackBerry Makes its Way to Android

posted by Jake at on Sep 27, 2011 | Leave a comment

Xobni has been one of the most successful contact management solutions for many platforms, starting with the Microsoft Outlook plugin and then advancing into the mobile sphere with the Super Address Book application for BlackBerry.  Xobni’s  incredible ability to index contacts has since embedded itself alongside apps like QuickLaunch as a must have productivity tool.

As you would expect from any product experiencing this kind of success the folks at Xobni have expanded their services to both Gmail and Android under the SmartrTM brand.  I have been using the Gmail add on for quite a while now and I’m quite sure that those choosing to adopt these new products will be just as excited as the BlackBerry world has been about their increased productivity.

Xobni for Gmail Arrives in Private Beta; Xobni for Android and iPhone Moving to Beta Soon

posted by Jake at on Mar 18, 2011 | Leave a comment

I know what you are thinking….. “why am I writing this post when the word BlackBerry is nowhere to be found in the title”, right? I am letting you know about this development because I think this will make Xobni’s well known talent for indexing email and social communication a whole lot more relevant to the daily lives of many BlackBerry users. For a long time my interest in Xobni was minimal for one reason, I hate Microsoft Outlook. I have been a Google Apps user since shortly after it rolled out and find that a unified inbox is far more valuable to me in the cloud where I can access it from any one of my multiple computers or any machine with internet access, so knowing how murky my inbox can get I am personally very excited about this announcement. Since I am a dual platform smartphone user I think it’s exciting that they are rolling out support for other devices as well and I’m sure that Xobni will continue to excel as the industry’s leading tool to integrate your vast network of contacts and bring them into an easily accessible location.

To find out more about these beta releases and get on the list check out the links below:

Xobni Gets Updated to v1.0.88.9 and Receives BlackBerry 6 Support

posted by Zach Gilbert at on Nov 9, 2010 | Leave a comment

To view this video on your BlackBerry or other mobile device, Click Here.

One of my favorite apps for BlackBerry..beside BerryBuzz, is Xobni. Xobni is what I like to call a smart contact list. Most people including me don’t like having thousands of contacts in my address book, I talk to a few people everyday and those I need a full contact card for. With Xobni you can have thousands of contacts on your BlackBerry without having them on you BlackBerry, sounds odd I know. What Xobni does is it looks at all your emails and finds everyone in them, all their names and phone numbers and makes a Xobni contact so you have them at the touch of a botton. If I had to pick out one feature of this app and call it my favorite I would have to pick how it puts everyone in order of importance, say I talk to Justin a lot he would be at the top of my Xobni list, but say I email my brother less then Justin he would go below. This would work on all your contacts providing you with a easy way to manager your life.

Today the team from Xobni let me know that they have updated their app to v, the update will bring some much needed changes like BlackBerry 6 support, easier to follow setup guide;

  • On OS 6.x devices touching the Xobni bar or flick up works on compose, reply and forward actions
  • Updated High-Definition icons
  • Touch scrolling enhanced for optimized scrolling experience
  • Editing is aware of virtual keyboard display and formats content shown on remaining screen
  • Xobni bar not showing up in some cases now handled
  • Add picture for contacts via camera

These are just a few of the many upgrades and changes to Xobni. If your looking to give the app a try you can, just download the app onto you BlackBerry from Xobni.com and let the app go to work.

On your Blackberry? To view the video from your mobile device click here

The day is finally here, after months of beta testing Xobni for Blackberry is here. Now some of you are probably saying “Zach what is Xobni??” well let me explain, Xobni is an address book for your BlackBerry that bases the order of contacts on your interaction with them, so instead of having your contact Amanda Appleton at the top because of the alphabet you may have Zain as your first contact because you communicate with him more often. So by now your thinking “WOW Xobni sounds pretty cool” yep I know so head over to Xobni.com/mobile and get in the loop.
