It wasn't all that long ago now that RIM acquired the social CRM, online contact management service -- Gist. Now, here we are only a few months later and Gist has just announced the release of their BlackBerry application. While limited to just the BlackBerry Torch for now, Gist is available in BlackBerry App World for download. So, what can you do with Gist for BlackBerry?
Use Gist for BlackBerry smartphones to:
- Search and view complete business profiles for contacts across email, mobile, and social network accounts; and add contacts from your BlackBerry smartphone automatically.
- See your important contacts first, including easy access to contact info, photo, and social updates; share a link through email; or take a note to remember later.
- Use the “Get the Gist” context menu instantly to build a profile or get a quick update for any email recipient or person in a calendar invite.
If you're already a Gist user, then downloading it is a no brainer. If you're new to Gist, then you can jump on past the break for a video explaining the services and to see the app in action. You can also hit the source link for further details or just head on over to App World for the download.
