First Jim's explanation about the new Tungle application for the Blackberry was about as detailed and descriptive as one could ever hope for.
Second the usefulness of Tungle was clearly made to the readership.
Third, Jim came right out with a Walt Mossberg like statement that so many fence sitting followers residing along the "boulevard of communications" as I call it look for before trying anything new out when he wrote:
Personally I have used Tungle over the past week with great success. It's simple to install and eliminates lots of non-productive time exchanging emails with various meeting time slot proposals (or even making voice calls to finalize details). . In fact, Tungle appears to be one of those rare productivity applications whose value is quickly appreciated the first time you use it.
Last but not least, Jim nailed the part about Eco-system competency, a point we look to have espoused when we work with our clients. By suggesting the following, Jim has given the kind of insight in his post from a well informed, knowledge based perspective by identifying logical partners for the early stage Montreal based company:
Going forward I have suggested API's that could link Tungle as a front end for hosts organizing VAPPS HiDef Conferencing sessions (or even Skype Conference call sessions); I can also foresee where deeper direct integration into Blackberry Calendar or CRM applications, such as Salesforce.com, would be useful. And it's ideal for Skylook users who already are archiving their Skype conversations into Outlook. Tungle does have plans for making this an integral web-based "social networking" tool that is "just there" when you have to organize a meeting.
What a great way to start the day. Thanks Jim.
