GroupMe let us know that they have updated their BlackBerry app to v3.0.2. This new update adds some nice features along with speed improvements across the board. The main features include Featured Groups and an updated News Tab. Here is the full change log:
- Now BlackBerry app users can create “Featured Groups” to start conversations with their friends about their favorite brands, TV festivals, bands, and more. The groups will also receive news, information and special promotions via GroupMe.
- Current features groups include: Kesha, Dexter, Austin City Limits Festival, Dave Matthews Band Caravan, The Voodoo Experience and The World According to Paris (Paris Hilton realty TV show on Oxygen).
- In the “News” tab, users can now see the recent activity on GroupMe, including what Groups they’ve been added to, which ones were disbanded, etc.
· Speed Improvements
- The conversation list display is much faster.
- The app will stay in the background upon normal exit (escape).
- Users can force the app to close completely by selecting the menu "Close."
- The end effect is a quicker start-up time. If a user does select "Close", then the start-up will be similar to before.
