With BlackBerry 6 RIM introduced a new way to search your device called Universal Search. We had the option to use our voice or text to do the heavy lifting. While it has filled a void that BlackBerry users have experienced for some time, there are still improvements to be had. OldSearch from QuiteSimple apps aims to step in and give you some of those improvements by offering the ability to search not only fields in a contact but also your tasks, calendar and email which extends the functionality of the built in search on your BlackBerry.

Features:

  • Full integration with Universal Search - just type the keyword and click on OldSearch icon to get the search results
  • Search in Memo body, Task Body, Calendar note, Contacts note
  • Extended Contacts search - search in address, emails, job title, phones and all other fields (now you can easily find all your contacts who live in Texas for example)
  • Message search (subject, body, to/from fields)
  • Adjust and limit search categories in Options
  • OS7.0 support

OldSearch is now available in BlackBerry App World for $2.99, which is a steal for the amount of time you’ll save using it. But this wouldn’t be CrackBerry if we didn’t have a giveaway in store. 

Contest: We’ve teamed up with QuiteSimple apps to hold a contest for 50 copies of their new search application. All you need to do is leave a comment below and you’re well on your way to searching faster and more efficiently with your BlackBerry. Contest ends Sunday at midnight.
