Our buddy Kevin spotted a new application by Mobatech that will appeal to a few users out there. It essentially gives you access to national and religious holidays, sporting events, and other important dates from one application. It also lets you export them to your BlackBerry calendar. Personally I already do this by importing Jewish Holidays and US National holidays using Outlook for free but some people will enjoy the convenience.
The app is going for $9.95 in the store but sadly there is no free trial.
From the description:
National holidays, religious holidays, sporting events and more! With Datepedia, users have instant access to the most comprehensive package of dates for BlackBerry devices. Simply select dates and export them to your BlackBerry calendar at the click of a button. Need to remember a birthday or anniversary? Now you can add your own dates at any time so you’ll never forget that important event! Not sure if Valentine’s Day is Saturday or Sunday this year? With Datepedia in your phone you’ll never have to wonder again!
