Know more about who you know. Gist for BlackBerry® smartphones enables you to access all of your contacts in one place and see updates for each contact from various sources including email, social networks and other online content. Gist reviews the volume of communication that you have with each and every person in your network, the frequency of communication and the number of account connections for each contact to establish an 'importance' ranking. Gist adds a 'Get the Gist' menu item to your BlackBerry's Messages, Calendar and Contacts applications. When you are viewing an item in one of those applications, you can select 'Get the Gist' from the menu to see the Gist profile of that person. Here’s what you can do with Gist for BlackBerry smartphones: - See a unified contact list across email, social networks and other sources. - Get news, status updates and contact details for everyone in your network. - 'Get the Gist' for a contact directly from a message or calendar event by using the BlackBerry main menu. - Easily share a social update or news item via email, Twitter or Facebook. - See a photo for each contact and start a text message, email, phone or BBM conversation directly from Gist. - Sort contacts by ‘Importance’ to highlight the people you're emailing and meeting with the most. - Add contacts to Gist from your BlackBerry Contacts, Google Apps, Facebook and Twitter. Details for this version: - Major performance and reliability improvement: Significant increase in speed and reliability upon the initial load of contacts from various sources (Contacts app, Calendar app, email, Twitter, and Facebook) and pulling all of their social information and news from the web. - We now pull new contacts from your social accounts into Gist more often. So you will see a new Facebook friend or someone you’ve followed on Twitter appear faster in your Gist account. - The “Get the Gist” option from the Contacts and Calendar apps is not only faster, but also more reliable. The app is also much faster when navigating the tabs within a contact profile. - New feature: “Get the Gist” now works on groups in the BlackBerry contact app. - More detailed and specific messages versus generic error messages within the app "Using Gist to learn about my contacts was completely effortless and really added a new dimension to communication." –Jeff Grosse, @CRMFYI The Gist Promise: - Your data is wholly owned and controlled by you. At no time is your data shared with other Gist users unless specifically granted by you. - Your data is secure.
