30 Days of Frustrations with a Blackberry - Day 2


"Address Book from the 80s"

One question: Did the developers of this feature have absolutely NO vision? The look of this app is like something you'd see on a non-smartphone, such as a Razor or Nokia. Heck, they probably have better looking address books.

For those unfamiliar, here's a nice looking Contacts screenshot from a WM5 device:

And here's a screenshot of the primitive looking Address Book on a Blackberry:

I mean, wow, do the developers live in houses with stark white walls and no pictures on the walls?

I had the occurrence today where someone asked me for another person's phone number. I had to open this atrocious looking app, then actually click on the person's name to see the info. Sure, it's not that much extra work, but it *is* extra work. And aren't we supposed to be working smarter not harder?

There's not even a chance for a resolution to this one, I think. The OS doesn't allow for customization of the Address Book in the slightest.

Current Disposition: I HATE Blackberries
