Tungle Beta – Coordinate Meetings With Your BlackBerry

TungleTungle was just released into Beta not long ago. In short it allows you to coordinate meetings and such across Outlook, Google, iCal, Lotus Notes and now they support the BlackBerry with a cool new interface.

From the press release:

With Tungle’s new BlackBerry interface, professionals checking e-mail on their BlackBerry devices can receive Tungle meeting invitations with a link. A click on that link launches a WAP browsing session to the Tungle scheduling site, formatted for their devices’ displays. Once there, users can update their availability. After the meeting is booked, the user will receive a meeting confirmation, formatted for his or her BlackBerry calendar—all without having to open a laptop.

I could not find documentation supporting this on their website www.tungle.com but I did get this press release that you can catch after the jump. This might be interesting for some without MS Exchange or such at work.

TUNGLE MEETING COORDINATOR OPTIMIZED FOR BLACKBERRY
The Free, Business-Class Meeting Coordinator Reaches BlackBerry Users,
Making Scheduling Meetings with Busy, On-the-Move Professionals Easier Than Ever

MONTRÉAL–May 20, 2008—Tungle, the free business-class meeting co-ordination service that eliminates the wasted time and frustration of scheduling meetings among many busy people, has released a new version of its plug-in. The newest version of Tungle allows users to easily coordinate meetings for perhaps the very busiest people: professionals on the go who don’t have time to open their laptops. Owners of BlackBerry® smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM), in addition to notebook and desktop users, can now easily manage and schedule meetings with Tungle.

Tungle is a Microsoft Outlook plug-in that empowers users to coordinate meetings with anyone, across platformsincluding iCal, Google Calendar, Lotus Notes and now BlackBerryas well as across organizations, time zones and even with people who are not using Tungle.

With Tungle’s new BlackBerry interface, professionals checking e-mail on their BlackBerry devices can receive Tungle meeting invitations with a link. A click on that link launches a WAP browsing session to the Tungle scheduling site, formatted for their devices’ displays. Once there, users can update their availability. After the meeting is booked, the user will receive a meeting confirmation, formatted for his or her BlackBerry calendar—all without having to open a laptop.

“Road warriors are probably the biggest scheduling challenge,” said Marc Gingras, CEO of Tungle. “They are rarely in front of their computers and are hard to reach when coordinators are trying to fix meeting times. If they carry BlackBerries, they can now quickly and easily respond to Tungle meeting invitations when they are on the go, in a matter of seconds.”

The Tungle Beta Pilot

A free service, Tungle has been in open beta since mid-April. To start using Tungle, including the BlackBerry service, users can visit www.tungle.com to download. The recently launched Tungle Outlook plug-in takes less than 30 seconds to install. It automatically synchronizes with users’ Outlook address books and calendars, eliminating any configuration or complicated setup. This information is kept secure and locally on the user’s machine, and is not uploaded or shared with anyone else or with Tungle. Its IM-like user interface makes it easy for users to understand and to start using within seconds.
