We've mentioned Polarbear a few times here on CrackBerry already but I'm pleased to say that private beta's of the new improved version are going out real soon, however we have been lucky enough to get our hands on it early so I'll claim an exclusive - does that get me extra points?
If you haven't heard of Polarbear before it's essentially a native BlackBerry 10 application that will allow you to post to a selection of social media accounts in one hit. Gone will be the days of typing the same update into the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Google+, etc, as Polarbear will let you update various apps from just one place.
To be honest, I've had a few beta versions of Polarbear, but until Twitter was integrated I refused (and told the developer) that I wouldn't use it. It looks like any third party app issues have now been resolved and Polarbear is doing its job. Although Polarbear is in BlackBerry App World - a launch date for the new improved version of the application is still unknown at this stage, however as this would seem to be the re-launched beta (which works a treat) I'm hoping it won't be too far off. The current version has some restrictions in terms of which social networks you can post to.
As you will see from the above video - connecting Polarbear to the likes of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Blogger, Tumblr and App.net is a piece of cake, so the same status update can be sent to all of the selected accounts in one swift move - nice. I don't use all the available social networks but it will certainly be an advantage to post to the few I do use with ease.
Fingers crossed this new version one will be submitted to BlackBerry World soon and we will of course have a full review, but in the meantime what do you think? Will you use Polarbear? Feel free to sound off in the comments.
