Announcing PushPress for BlackBerry-Testers Needed!

Posted on 21. Apr, 2010 by in BlackBerry

I am very happy to finally be able to announce the chance for our readers to test a new application, one we have worked very closely with the developer on.  PushPress is the first native BlackBerry application that brings WordPress blogs straight to your BlackBerry with no need for an RSS reader or using your mobile browser to view the content. Features:

  • Compile all of your blogs in one location
  • View content optimized for your mobile device
  • No need to wait for page after page to load from the web browser
  • Limited data usage compared to the browser leads to full content at a fraction of the time
  • Comment on any post straight from the app
  • Share posts via many social networks including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

This app really does make the viewing of blogs a better experience.  We have had the required WordPress plugin installed from day one and have seen this app grow leaps and bounds.  You are able to comment straight from the app on a post, view pictures, tweet a link.. a lot more than you can do in your mobile browser.  At this time, PushPress is entering a private beta with a limited number of testers.  There are still some quirks and bugs to be worked out and I am sure testers will have some great ideas for it as well.

How do you sign up?  It is simple, visit the ALL KAPPS website and enter all the requested information.  All they ask in return is that you provide quality feedback and ideas.  You must be on BlackBerry OS 5.0 or higher.

After you install the application make sure you add BerryScoop to the blog list using www.berryscoop.com (have to have “www”).  We are currently the only blog with the plugin installed, with the developer in talks with other blogs to take part in testing by installing the plugin.  If you have a favorite blog that is running on WordPress and you want them to install the plugin, let them know! Full press release and screenshots below.

Introducing the Very First Native App for WordPress Blog Consumers ALL KAPPS Software, developers of the top selling application bChat for BlackBerry smartphones, is proud to announce the release of the private beta version of PushPress for BlackBerry. PushPress offers the consumer the ability to aggregate all of their blogs based on the WordPress blog platform in one easy to use and convenient place. Open the app for a brief update off all of your blogs at once or dig deeper into the blog to check out full posts, all images, and comments.

Features:

  • Compile all of your blogs in one location
  • View content optimized for your mobile device
  • No need to wait for page after page to load from the web browser
  • Limited data usage compared to the browser leads to full content at a fraction of the time
  • Comment on any post straight from the app
  • Share posts via many social networks including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

Beta Info PushPress is available right now for a limited time through a limited beta release to those who sign up at http://www.allkappssoftware.com/index.php/beta Signups will be limited to a certain number of testers so sign-up while there are still open spots. We have set up a feedback site for testers to leave feature requests, bug reports and feedback. Users must have OS 5.0 installed for the beta test which means that we support the following devices: BlackBerry 9700, 9000, 9630, 9650, 9550, 9500, 8520/30.

Blog Editors At this time we are actively looking for blogs to join with us and install the free plugin back end for the WordPress blogging platform. It is a non-intrusive unnoticeable plugin that allows the PushPress mobile application to interact with your blog and access the optimized content. Optimize your site for mobile users through the site without the need for a specific mobile site. We are currently working on a partner program that will share revenue on a per subscriber basis. Monetize your blog in a way that simple RSS feeds cannot. We also offer customized versions of the app for your site only, complete with ad support and UI customization.
