The folks over at Hedone Design let us know that their first application for the BlackBerry PlayBook under the name i-Mentlist, called VCMS (Vehicle Counters and Monitoring System) has been updated to v2.0. This new version not only adds some interesting new features but also brings support for BlackBerry 7 devices as well.

For those unfamiliar with VCMS, this is a GPS based application that displays all the information you'll ever need on the road, water, or in the sky all with its elegant design and eye-catching dials. While it already features a compass, speed meter, two trip counters, location and time, just to name a few, it now includes the following updates:

  • Lap timer
  • Social networks (including BBM on BB7 devices)
  • Statistics (you can export it and import them to Google maps, or similar and check your routes)
  • Maximum speed
  • Average speed
  • Speed alarms (yes, not alarm but alarms)

VCMS is compatible with BlackBerry 9220, 9350/60/70/80/90, 9790, 9810/50/60, 9900/30/81 and the BlackBerry PlayBook running OS 1.0 and higher. You can find it at the link below for $2.99 in BlackBerry App World.

I helped test this on the 9900 and the 9810 and I must say, if you've used this on the PlayBook... It's just as great on the phone! It's quick, beautiful, fluid, and it works very well!

Thanks HedoneDesign and i-Mentalist!

You're very welcome! You and other beta testers helped us make it this way! Thanx for that! ;)

VCMS is really good on the playbook.

Great to have it on the phone
