Xobni Gets a Sweet Update and Adds a FREE Version

UniversalSearch-01 SearchHome-01

Xobni is really putting all their cards on the table with their latest announcement. They have released a new free version of their address book management software which has a few limits like 3 compose screen lookups per day and is missing some of the new features. About those new features Xobni announced a boat load of them in the latest update. Here are the highlights though my favorite is definitely Universal Search:

  • Universal Search – Universal Search integration for OS 6.x devices, Xobni results will show up in your native BlackBerry search! (Pro only)
  • Contact Sharing – Share full contact details, emails/phone numbers via email or SMS (OS 6.x). Xobni users will see a notification dialog in Xobni.
  • Export To Adress Book – Now users can export contact details from Xobni to the native BlackBerry Address Book (Pro only).
  • Search by Company/Title – Leveraging the social and Outlook contact details from Xobni, search for Company or Title (Pro only).
  • Free Version! – Xobni for BlackBerry can now be downloaded for free, which will include Xobni Pro upgrades with a few feature limitations (up to 3 compose screen lookups per day).

The crazy thing is that the free version seems like a side show deal since Xobni is still offering a crazy discount on the Pro version for $1.99! Xobni also added the following improvements in this version:

  • Phone number extraction updates and improvements
  • Meetings will show a 2 week past/forward timeframe for meetings
  • Ability to delete contacts via the hidden contacts view under options
  • Pro users will see a “Xobni Pro” icon
  • Activation menu item was added to activate from home screen
  • Search enhancements and improvements
  • Updated contact support and report feedback section
  • Selecting phone call or SMS log shows a details dialog
  • Email and phone icons have been updated
  • Stability and performance improvements

  1. I still prefer the normal contact..

  2. i’ll stick with the native.. works fine for me

  3. I picked this up for $.99 before xmas. The one thing I like is that it can backup your contacts. I’ve always had issues with DM and Google Sync. So far so good on Xobni
