BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing App has been Updated to v1.0.0.50 – Adds OS 7 Support

BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing application has been updated to v1.0.0.50. The update includes support for OS 7 devices as well as some other goodies.

What’s New?

Convert an Email to a Conference Invitation

Now you can shift your conversation from email to a conference bridge quickly and simply. Use the “Schedule Conference” menu option on any email to create a calendar invitation with the same individuals on the email thread, subject, and message notes. Check out the screenshot above for an example.

Manage up to 10 Conference Profiles

If you’re like me, you’re constantly hosting conference calls as well as attending them, using a variety of conference bridges. The BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing app has been designed not only to provide ease of access and connection to these calls, but also to help you manage the variety of conference bridges that you use by allowing up to 10 conference profiles to be stored on your device.

Improved Conference Call Detection Algorithm

The app has done a great job of detecting conference call information and automating the process, and now the algorithm behind this process is better than ever. Using feedback from users, we’ve increased the “intelligence” of the conference call detection, including more conference description formats and language constructs.

Improved Hidden Moderator Code

When you’re scheduling conference calls from your desktop, you can now send only the participant information and keep your moderator or host code hidden. For meeting invites that only include participant information, the BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing app will automatically search for matching bridge information in your conference profiles. If it finds a match, it will dial you in with the moderator code from the corresponding profile and connect the conference when you press “Join Now”.

Support for BlackBerry 7 and Liquid Graphics

All of the new BlackBerry® 7 OS smartphones will support the BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing app, including the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 and 9930 smartphones, as well as the BlackBerry® Torch™ 9810 and 9850 smartphones. If you have yet to upgrade, BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing is also supported by BlackBerry® Device Software v5.0 and BlackBerry® 6 OS.
