Easy BlackBerry Browser Bookmarklets – Create QR Codes or Search BerryReview & More!

BerryReview Bookmarklet BerryReview Bookmarklet2

For those of you who don’t know what a bookmarklet is here is a brief description. A bookmarklet is a small bit of JavaScript code stored in the URL of a bookmark in your browser that is designed to add functionality by clicking on it. I was thinking about this concept when I was at BlackBerry World and found it actually works in the new BlackBerry WebKit browser. While I would rather have more robust Browser addons like I mentioned yesterday this has spurred my interest for now.

Here are some of the bookmarklets I created so far with more to come soon. You simply hit the BlackBerry menu button while hovering on top of the link below and select “Add Links to Bookmarks.”

There are limitations though that annoy me like not being able to save a bookmarklet to the homescreen but I plan on creating many more. The possibilities are endless from a “Subscribe in Google Reader” bookmarklet to a “highlight specific text or searching Wikipedia inline.

There are billions of bookmarklets our there online from Evernote to everything else you can think of. Share the ones you find or need help with in the comments!

  1. Love bookmarklets. Am I mistaken, or does the pb not have the capability?

  2. fyi the bookmarklet urls and urls in general are really, really hard to click on on the PB optimized site… theyre too small and its much worse when they are next to each other.

    • I’m working on the size but I am not finding much luck in resources other than making all the text bigger or have taller line spacing. I’m working on maybe making the lines with links taller…

  3. Yeah a css class to increase the url links text size might be good enough or something like that.

  4. Ok. Tried the google one. But nothing works. Am I missing something or the purpose?
