Twinkle, which was named a Regional Selections Winner in the 2010 BlackBerry Super Apps Challenge, has now been updated to version 2.0 in BlackBerry AppWorld. The new version of Twinkle includes the ability to import events into Twinkle from the Calendar, integrate with Universal Search, and navigate through the application with keyboard shortcuts. Additionally the update includes a few bug fixes, and the option to use yellow as a background colour.
Twinkle is a simple application that allows you to set and keep track of upcoming and past events. Twinkle will tell you how far away an event is, and allow you to add it to your BlackBerry’s calendar. Twinkle gives you the ability to add and edit events, lets you keep track of how soon something is, or how long it has been.
Import Events from Calendar
While it has always been possible to send a copy of new Twinkle events to the calendar, in Version 2.0 it is now possible to import existing Calendar events to Twinkle. This is done by adding a menu option to the calendar, and is demonstrated in the video below.
Integration with Universal Search
On BlackBerry devices running OS6, Twinkle will now integrate with Universal Search. The titles of the events will be searchable at any time, and will allow you to open up Twinkle straight to that event.
Also new in this version are keyboard shortcuts, for all full-qwerty BlackBerry devices. ‘e’ and ‘enter’ both open up the currently selected event for editing. ‘c’ allows you to create a new event. ‘n’ moves the selection to the next event, while ‘p’ moves the selection to the previous event.
Twinkle supports all BlackBerry devices running OS 5.0 or higher. This includes the 8330, 8350i, 8520, 8530, 8900, 8910, 9000, 9100, 9105, 9300, 9330, 9500, 9520, 9530, 9550, 9630, 9650, 9670, 9700, 9780, and 9800.
