We mentioned vPost early last month as a application that lets you easily send emails with pictures, audio, video, & GPS coordinates. They just let me know that they have released version 2.0 of their application with some key enhancements. Nothing crazy new but I have to say that the new user interface looks MUCH better. It is still $9.99 in the store and it comes with a free 14-day trial so you can give it a spin first. If you find yourself sending attachments often from your BlackBerry this is a must have application.
- This version works incredibly on the Storm; something that few BB apps can say
- The whole UI theme has been polished to be super sexy
- The attachment limit has been increased to 15 which is great if you want to send a whole batch of pictures or media in seconds
- If you click on pictures in the media ring there is an enhanced preview mode
- It’s faster to load, it’s smaller in size than before (~480kb)
- The settings menu has more options and the 1500kb total size limit has been made configurable
- You can also add multiple emails to the favorite widget by placing comma’s between addresses in the settings menu
- GPS can now be disabled & enabled by clicking on the GPS indicator
From the description:
vPost lets you capture and email any combination of Pictures, Video, Audio Notes, Text & GPS location using an extremely powerful and simple interface. Once you capture any combination of media you can send it via email to friends, family, colleagues, blogs and social networks. Without vPost it can take over 5 minutes to compose an email with 2 pictures, an audio note, and GPS location. With vPost this task can be done in less than a minute with no hassles. Try vPost today and start sending rich-media to anyone and everyone!
