Wikitude Map Wikitude Map2

Wikitude initially rolled out their augmented reality browser with BlackBerry 7 devices taking advantage of the augmented reality enabling compass. The app is preloaded on BlackBerry 7 phones which gave them a large footprint. Now they are expanding that footprint by releasing Wikitude for BlackBerry OS 6.0 devices. This variant gives you all of the features of Wikitude except for the augmented reality which requires the compass. It does let you look around you for BBM friends and more including:

  • Find cafes, pubs, events, tweets, Wikipedia articles, ATMs, restaurants and much more around you
  • Browse more than 150 million places and interactive content
  • Explore and identify places, monuments and objects around you
  • Search for specific places, for example “thai restaurant”
  • Find mobile coupons and discounts for stores and shops near by

You can pick up Wikitude for BlackBerry OS 6.0 free in App World or read the release below:

Wikitude Expands Support for BlackBerry Smartphones

The BBM connected app now supports BlackBerry 6 OS and higher, and is available in BlackBerry App World starting today

As part of BlackBerry® Dev Con Asia taking place in Singapore this year, Wikitude has announced additional support for smartphones running on the BlackBerry® 6 operating system (OS). With Wikitude being preinstalled on all new smartphones running the BlackBerry 7 OS, bringing Wikitude to smartphones running BlackBerry 6 will help answer considerable demand expressed by users who want to experience Wikitude’s extensive content offering including more than 2,000 content Worlds consisting of approx. 150 million places around the globe. Users of the popular BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700, 9780,9788 and BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphones can download Wikitude on BlackBerry® App World™ starting today.
Although smartphones running BlackBerry OS 6 do not support the Augmented Reality view, which requires specific hardware features available in BlackBerry 7 based smartphones, the Wikitude app does fully integrate with BBM™ enabling users to find their BBM friends on a map and to communicate with one another based on their location. Users opting to allow their whereabouts to be displayed can even make new friends.
After being crowned “The Most Addictive Social App Using the BBM Social Platform” at BlackBerry DevCon Americas in October, Wikitude most recently won the BlackBerry® EMEA Innovation Award for “Best BBM Connected App”, awarded in Alicante 1stDecember. “Extending the Wikitude platform to millions of BlackBerry 6 smartphone users will make the BBM experience richer than ever before. We are extremely happy to finally bring this version of Wikitude to even more BlackBerry smartphone users,” says Martin Herdina, Wikitude’s CEO.
Alec Saunders, VP Developer Relations, Research In Motion, said: "We’re delighted that Wikitude has integrated BBM support within their app. Integration with BBM can allow much greater viral discovery for apps, as well as enrich and transform the user experience with important social elements.”

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage.

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
