We have been working hard to make CircleMe the best tool to keep people updated on their passions and interests in life. As we grew to more than 1 million passions in the database, and more than 25000 news posted a month, it was time to deliver a good product also to the Blackberry community.
“The basic idea behind the project was to create an interest based network that could suggest the right tips at the right time. Now, after a business meeting, a BlackBerry 10 smartphone user can catch the concert of their favorite singer. Thanks to the geo-localization they can also find out that the movie of the year is premiering next month even when they are traveling to another city,” says Giuseppe D’Antonio, our CEO here at CircleMe. We just launched a few days ago and some users, having tried out the app are already expressing good opinions on the work:”Good port, make native to make it interesting.” and “Nice app and nice service! Finally for Blackberry!”.
Considering the complexities in developing the app of CircleMe for Android (which brings to the mobile world many features present on the web app), the porting from Android to Blackberry technology has been anything but complicated. We were able to port our Android app within few days to the Blackberry world. 🙂
The CircleMe app for BlackBerry smartphones can be customized through different features that make the profile like a personal, unique magazine. The “To Do” feature, for example, allows users to save topics that they want to learn more about, while the “Plant” feature lets you use geo-localization, add events related to a specific interest and share contents and news on a specific place.
With CircleMe users can connect with people that share the same passions by clicking the icon Trust. The app can also be used to send private messages on a specific topic, to send suggestions and tag people in conversations.
As CircleMe continues to integrate with new content partners, the app is a very good tool to keep up to date with everyone of your interests in life.
Keep your eyes on it as we are always working to introduce new nifty features, such as geo-located notifications and automated calendars with events related to your interests.
