BerryBuzz has received a major overhaul and is now available in the form of BerryBuzz 3.0. The new update has a load of action-packed features that make this the best version yet. I'm a big fan of this app, and the update adds a ton of welcome additions. BerryBuzz lets you totally customize your LED for messages, reminders, phone calls and now some 3rd party apps and contact alerts. Updates include:
- Major rework of the user interface (Includes option to black out all screens)
- Added support for more 3rd party apps like Twitter (RIM), TweetGenius, UberTwitter, SocialScope, OpenBeak, BeejiveIM, IM+, WhatsApp, Skype, MySpace, Viigo, ebay App, MeterBerry, instango
- Added contact LEDs that let you assign LED colors to calls/SMS/e-mails from specific contacts
- Added option to vibrate while ringing for all notifications
- Added 4 new colors and 12 new LED disco colors
- Added support for stacking 2 LED colors for even more color variations
- Added option to vibrate/play sound when call connected/disconnected
The ability to now add alerts for contacts, dual-colors for alerts, 3rd party app support and a backup/restore feature for settings make this a great app to have. The downside is that current BerryBuzz owners will have to cough up another $1.99 to get the upgrade, while new users can get it fresh for $5.99.
