Xobni Updated With BlackBerry OS 6 Support and More!

xobniXobni let us know that they have updated their BlackBerry app to a new version 1.0.88.9 which adds support and integration with BlackBerry 6 along with loads of other features. The new version is set to go live at 1PM EST today so it should be available when you read this. I am surprised it has taken Xobni so long to support BlackBerry 6 but they have used this release to incorporate a bunch of user feedback and significant enhancements, improvements and fixes for the BB app (see below).  They are also planning on rolling out Xobni to other App Stores such as Mobihand, Handango, Getjar and PocketGear.

Below is a summary of the new features:

  • OS 6.x Support
    • Touching the Xobni bar or flicking up works on compose, reply and forward actions now work on OS 6x devices
    • 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
    • Add picture for contacts via camera
  • Multiple interface updates (including improved setup guide, keyboard shortcuts to options, contact detail UI update)
  • Key stability and performance improvements
  • Improvements for activation & trial related issues
  • Contact Extraction and contact edit improvements
  • All user preferences are maintained during upgrades

You can find the full change log after the jump. The new version of Xobni should be available now at this link in App World or directly from their site at this link. Let us know if you manage to snag it!

  1. Still debating on if this app is worth the $10 investment… especially cuz there’s no trial.

    Any testimonies?
