Viadeo for BlackBerry smartphones joins the Super-App League
In addition to standard social network functionalities, the mobile app Viadeo for BlackBerry smartphones is a smart application that integrates with the browser, address book and other native apps. Users will enjoy easier interaction with contacts and an enriched mobile experience.
Viadeo, the social network for professionals, has announced today that its ‘Super App’ is now available for BlackBerry® smartphones. The free app can now be downloaded on BlackBerry® App World™ from d.viadeo.com
The Viadeo app gives BlackBerry smartphone users access to all essential Viadeo features: contacts, news feeds, messages, profile visits, searches, and more. But it also pushes the whole experience up a notch through its ability to integrate with the smartphone’s native apps and communicate and interact with them. Right from your address book, for example, all it takes is one click to invite your contacts to join your Viadeo community. You can also share web links with Viadeo contacts directly from the browser.
“Integration with the address book and BlackBerry browser is actually just a first step,” explains Olivier Fécherolle, the head of Strategy and Development at Viadeo. “The sky is practically the limit. We intend to forge ahead with development so that we can soon add new features based on other apps available on BlackBerry smartphones, such as BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger), GPS and calendar.”
Viadeo is a professional social network with over 40 million members. Viadeo is used by those who want to:
