BlackLine GPS Releases BlipPlus Free Geo-Social Application for BlackBerry
      01/10/09 01:40 AM

Today at the CES Show, BlackLine GPS released BlipPlus, the company's latest version of its popular Blip geo-social networking application for BlackBerry smartphones. BlipPlus uses GPS technology built into many popular BlackBerry smartphones to allow users to share their location to people they know. It is a FREE application for users and anyone to whom they share their location. Here is more info on this BlackBerry application:

BlipPlus offers users a complete experience on the BlackBerry smartphone from installation, account creation, and sharing of location. Users can share their location to others using BlipPlus or friends can create FREE BlackLine account on the web.

BlipPlus allows users to choose the frequency of locations published to BlackLine?s Location Services Platform. Users may choose to have their location updated as frequently as every 15 minutes through to every two hours. At any time, a user may disable location publishing or change friend permissions from within the BlipPlus application. Mapping the location of other BlipPlus users who have shared their location is quick and easy. Locations are displayed within the BlackBerry Maps application in seconds.

BlipPlus incorporates a new Event Publishing feature that allows users to geo-tag and share photos to others. Users can publish photos taken with their phone?s camera and share them to others along with a subject and comment. Friends receive an Event Notification when a new event is published and can view the photo, subject, note, and location online or from within BlipPlus.

Beyond sharing locations to others and enabling them with geographic awareness, BlipPlus is helpful to find a user?s smartphone when misplaced or lost. Overall, BlipPlus increases family efficiency and safety, and enhances the degree of connectedness within social circles.

The BlackLine BlipPlus application is FREE and available for immediate download at
