Venerable PocketDay Today Screen Utility Updated to v7

It has been a long time since I last mentioned PocketDay. The classic PocketDay app was last updated to v6 a little over a year ago so this v7 is no big surprise. Version 6 only really added a new weather system but v7 really adds a whole slew of new features spotted by BBCool. My favorite is the new title and toolbars in the app. Together they really cram in a ton of information into one view. Kind of overwhelming yet so much better than the activity feed in OS 6.

The full change log includes:

  • New Title Bar now shows every notification the main BB home screen does (OS 6 only)
  • New Toolbar at the bottom of the PocketDay Screen launches Profiles, New (Event, Task, Email, Text, etc.), Messages, BBM, Address Book, Browser, Camera and PD Favorites (Touch screen Devices Only)
  • Clicking on the Title Bar shows a new System Status window with a new Toolbar (Device Lock, Manage Connections, BB Options, Search, PD Options) – Touch Screen Devices Only
  • New Context Menus available for all PocketDay sections (OS 6)
  • New Favorites Feature allows users to create Favorite Contacts, Apps and Web Links (web links can be added to PD from the BB Browser as well)
  • Pressing the right side convenience key from within PocketDay opens the Favorites screen and cycles through the views (Contacts, Apps, Web links)…great for one handed quick access to functions
  • Clicking on email now launches the BB message app directly for standard functionality (OS 6)
  • Twitter and RSS News feeds now use the built in parsers for increased performance (OS 6)

The other big change seems to be a price drop for PocketDay Professional to $19.99 and PocketDay Personal to $9.99. Last I remember prices were about $5 more than that for both.

  1. I’ve never been a fan of Today Screens. Too much clutter for my taste, and I like to see my wallpaper. The pull down screen on OS6 is enough for me, and gives the essentials (messages, phone calls, calendar)..

    The only issue sometimes is opening it lags a bit. I think it’s an OS issue.. When are they going to leak a new one for the Torch? It’s been stuck on .337 for a long time!

  2. I can’t seem to download this new version, when I use the download link within v6 or from mobihand it takes me to the download page for the OS5 version. I downloaded it hoping they were one and the same, they definitely are not.

    Does anyone have a direct URL for the OS6 version? Thanks.

  3. I have always wanted a functional today screen and PocketDay has come through on my Torch. It is loaded and very functional.

  4. This is a great application, full featured, fast and great support.

    Buy 2, one for yourself and one for some you really like!
