One of most used and favorite apps on BlackBerry 10 has received another update. QuickPost has been updated with a new feature dubbed "#QPMusic". It basically allows you to share whatever song you're currently listening to with others. It's a small addition but a nice one at that. You can share via all the usual social media account options you normal have through QuickPost.

Visually you won't see much change within the app but when you're in compose mode you'll see a new button with a music note icon on it, underneath the text field, alongside the hashtag and '@' symbol. If you're playing a song and you tap the button, it will populate the text field with the song you're currently listening to. If you tap the button and no music is playing, it will tell you to play music and try again.

I you haven't heard of QuickPost before, it's an app that lets you "Type once, post everywhere". It's made for those who have multiple social media accounts and allows you to type out what you want to post as an update once and you can then push it out to all your different accounts, be it Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn. What I like about QuickPost is that it integrates with the native social media accounts on your BlackBerry 10 device so you don't need to login to each one again. It also includes BBM Channels and BBM Groups, as well as the ability to update your BBM status. You can also share pictures to the social accounts.

QuickPost is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices and costs $0.99. It is free to update, of course. If you haven't updated yet look out for the update.

QuickPost updated with a share music feature


What's it look like when you share music? Does it just share the song and artist name or does it throw in album art as well?

Nothing in my BBW update as yet - but then I can't purchase Viber, and I've had no iGrann update either.

Is it just me?

Is there a multiple social post app that includes instagram as well? Does quick post use instagram?

I know that the developer had reached out to the iGrann developer to workout how to be able to share to that from QuickPost

I would like to see Quickpost give us the option to have the posts automatically go up once we hit the button as opposed to always having to approve and send with each network we're posting to. There are times I would like to see each one for a slight change on one or more networks and other times I just want to hit one button and they all go up on their own with no further review.

Other than that, I love the app. They did a great job on it.
