For 2012, it is clear the growing interest in animal based Twitter accounts (see @BronxZooCobra and @NYTChicken) amplified the general public’s interest in chatting with a forecasting rodent via 140 characters or less.
And the data was just tremendous. The RT’s were flying!!
In the spirit of good faith, I again offer up the account to the top-hatted groundhog bunch. However, given they’ve ignored this offer and opportunity for four years now, I’ve decided I’m happy to keep it until Phil predicts Twitter is a relevant audience for their event.
Here are my five must-have free social apps for Blackberry:
BuzzMe: enables your Blackberry to ring and vibrate at the same time (what a novel concept!). You can also set your LED indicator light to “disco” mode, which is always a plus. Paid version has even more features.
FlashLight: turns your phone into a flashlight, which is great for finding your keys, getting dressed or emergency signaling in the dark. Choose from 8 colors and three levels of brightness.
YouVersion Bible: pulls down your requested book or scripture from a server, which means the app isn’t very big. Also has daily reading program, sharing tools and a local live feature.
QuickPull: allows you to reset your Blackberry without physically pulling the battery out. Since I like to run a ton of apps at once and rarely turn off my phone, a manual reboot seems to be about a once a week occurrence. This app is great for that.
SocialScope Lite: blends the best in for reading/updating Twitter (multiple accounts), Facebook, FourSquare and Flickr. Plus, it has manual refresh – my favorite.
