HootSuite has been working on their BlackBerry client since their first private beta in July of 2010. They finally released a beta in October of 2010 and have steadily been improving it since. Their BlackBerry client is still listed as a beta on their website and download site but spinrekkids @BBOS noticed that HootSuite has finally pushed out HootSuite v1.0 on App World for free.
There does not seem to be any changes I can see but hopefully an announcement will come soon. Until then here are the features from the beta:
- Manage multiple social identities and accounts
- Receive optional background notifications for updates
- Create custom views for tags and searches
- Schedule messages to send in the future
- Examine Ow.ly click-through stat reports
- Share and store photos and files
- Shorten URLs with Ow.ly
You can pick up HootSuite v1.0 from App World. Let us know if you spot anything new!
