"Hornet" - .TEL App for Blackberry® Launched by Webnames.ca
The .Tel address book with hustle.
Vancouver, BC, June 30, 2009 – Webnames.ca is pleased to announce the launch of the alpha version of "Hornet", the .tel address book. Available as a free download for Blackberry® Smartphones, Hornet is designed to easily manage and use .tel names.
To download Hornet, go to
hornethub.com or http://hornet.tel and download directly onto your Blackberry®. After your download, click on the Hornet icon and simply enter your contacts' .tel names. All of their contact details are instantly downloaded.
“I've been using early versions of the app for a month and have around 100 contacts in Hornet,” said Matthew Lane, CTO of Webnames.ca. “Having complete, up to date contact information is a big change from my Outlook/Blackberry address book and adding a new contact takes seconds.”
When your friends update or add new contact information, the updates are immediately propagated and can be seen on your Blackberry® when the .tel name is refreshed.
Next time you meet someone, ask them what their .TEL name is and just enter it into Hornet. You will never have to exchange paper business cards again!
Access to personal data can be limited by marking it as private and electing to share it only with people you authorize and is supported in the Hornet application.
