By ObiGeorge on 15 Jan 2010 10:17 am EST

We have posted a few times on the application Blurts. If you haven't heard, it is an application that connects your BlackBerry and PC via bluetooth, allowing you to view email, sms, and incoming call alerts directly on your PC. Along with its current features, Blurts has added the following:

  • SMS message threading with chat history and ability to have more that one SMS window open at once
  • Option to split messages larger than 160 characters into multiple messages
  • Capture of images from your BlackBerry's screen
  • Option to auto lock PC once Blurts disconnects
  • Now supporting Broadcom Bluetooth drivers
  • Importing of your BlackBerry's address book for alerts
  • Contacts photo will display from address book when receiving an alert
  • 2-Way transfer of clipboard
  • Non-English characters now supported
  • Location of alert on desktop is now customizable

If you're looking to give Blurts a go, they also have a trial version, however it does not include all of the new features features. The application is compatible with all devices running OS 4.2.1 and higher.

Contest: We have 50 copies of Blurts to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count.

Blurts Updated to Version 1.1 - 50 Free Copies to Give Away



I wonder how well it works when you are tethered to you laptop by USB cable? Or is it bluetooth connectable only? I hope I win this to check that out!

I have been running the trial version of blurts and i love it. I have been using it for 3 months now and its great.

I would love to get this app for free. Thank you for the opportunity. I'll just blurt it out: CrackBerry is the BEST!! Corny I know but I do mean it. Love your site!

oh em gee.. i need this app badly. this would help my multitasking efforts GREATLY if u could jus gone and lemme try out the full version.. *nudge* ;)

This app sounds like it might have great potential and would love a copy to help put the word out. Several functions sound great.

Thanks for the opportunity

This app is awesome!!! Gimme gimme pretty please with a cherry on top and whipped cream and sprinkles...lots of sprinkles!!!!!

Life gets easier every day with all these Apps...or I just get lazier? Whatever, it all makes me happy!

This sounds like a very handy app! Would love to win this as i am at the computer alot and get tired of having to reach for my bb all the time!! ;)

I sit in front of my computer 9 hours a day. What a perfect solution to constantly reaching for my cell phone.

Kudos for the great app.

As someone who doesn't come around the CB world as much as I would like, this is a very intriguing and potentially app. I would use this daily and it would allow me to have my phone on silent alerts so that those around me aren't disturbed. Well done.

Blackberry, Blackberry, with you I spend so much time.
Hopefully I'll earn gifts for you, with this simple rhyme.
You and I enjoy this world, in simple harmony.
That's why I think this app is right, for just you and me.
We've had our fights and our woes, but we have made it through.
That's why I'm writing this little poem, so I can treat you!
You've suffered through living with me, as we've been in yurts.
But soon I'll shower you with love, when I upload Blurts.

I'll be honest... it's a good one. So if you feel like using it for advertisement, I won't even ask a penny!

Thanks for your consideration. :)

this would work great for me at home cause i always have headphones on when on the comp and even at work when i leave the phone somewhere in the shop lol

This should be something that RIM thought of from the beginning, but man what a fantastic extension of the BlackBerry!
