LifeinPocket is now available for the BlackBerry Tour and Storm. LifeinPocket has many functions for people with busy lives. It is a free text messaging via phone and PC service powered with navigation and other GPS based services. It has been suggested that the LifeinPocket app "transcends" iPhones. It offers GPS directions with maps, syncing, business search, weather, parking, gas station-finding. There are many location-based functions of this app which parents, teens, and mobile types will love. We name it our "BlackBerry Storm / Tour App of the Day" because it is very "location functional." There moto is "Your phone, your life, in your pocket."
From the main screen you can access these icons/functions:
Navigation - advanced turn-by-turn navigation
prompts with voice guidance. that allows for hands-free
navigation. Utilizing synced address book and its unique online trip planning

Friends - whether they are using the same carrier or not. Let friends and family know where you are by sending location messages to them. They can click on the location to let LifeInPocket Navigation take them there, to view it on map or to search nearby POIs (Point of Interest) meet.
