I have been a user of Xobni for quite some time, and it has saved me several times when I did not have a contact in my personal device address book. I still add my contacts into my BlackBerry Address Book as I remember to, but Xobni scans all new emails, SMS or phone logs; creating profiles and adding contact info real-time.I may have 400 or more contacts in my address book, but Xobni has over 3400 contacts stored and accessible from my compose screen. For me Xobni is that personal phone book you keep in the cabinet drawer but never need to get, because it is sitting on your BlackBerry device.
Xobni has updated to version 2.0.11 which includes the following features, updates and improvements.
- Universal Search – Universal Search integration for OS 6.x devices, Xobni results will show up in your native BlackBerry search! (Pro only)
- Contact Sharing – Share full contact details, emails/phone numbers via email or SMS (OS 6.x). Xobni users will see a notification dialog in Xobni.
