If your a Blackberry user & a member of the micro-blogging site Twitter, then I’m pretty sure you have at one point or another heard of the twitter application for the Blackberry called Socialscope. Well last night droves of people were finally able to get their hands on this much searched for application.
**It looks like this window has now closed. This link may have been leaked and now looks like they have sealed it up. To those still waiting, hang in there. To those who was able to get it, you lucky people!**
Socialscope has been in a close beta stage for a long time now when the only way to get it, was to sign up and
pray wait for a special invite link to download the application. However there was tons of people who have been waiting for this application, but it was just out of their reach. Socialscope itself is still in alpha status but the application was beautiful. Now this was their v9.3 app, then they dropped v9.5! It first showed it’s face on a EngadgetMobile post, and then we right here at G Style Magazine took it for a spin & and it was good! After our post and follow up post called the Aftermath, a lot of people tweeted, emailed, and BBMed us asking how they could get it. We however didn’t have any special invites to give. Then it happened…
It started early evening around the 7-8pm EST I had been talking to a few people on Twitter about Socialscope and then one of those people put up the link for Socialscope Lite. To my surprise I heard nothing about this, and quickly grabbed the Blackberry of my fiance who had been using UberTwitter. Since I had the full beta on my Bold, I couldn’t install to test. Sure enough this link worked and my fiance had joined the Socialscope ranks. From there on both my personal Twitter account (@jasonlanderson) and G Style’s (@gstylemagazine) we spread the word to the masses. And it was a mad house! lol I litertally didn’t not get off Twitter until about 1 in the morning as I field questions, Retweets, and more about this application. All in all, everyone who wanted I believe was able to get it. If you missed this last night, we are hooking you up with the link to get it here as well. This will also be added to out mobile site.
So from your Blackberry, goto http://www.socialscope.net/blackberrylite and spread the word!
