Dublin, Ohio (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
Ripple Mobile, creators of the OnTime mobile calendar application, announced the release of OnTime version 1.2 that is compatible with BlackBerry for the first time, and includes six new features to the popular mobile calendar app that enhances the OnTime user experience.
“We’ve had outstanding user feedback,” said Kevin Miller, president and co-founder of Dublin, Ohio-based Ripple Mobile LLC. “Input we received from our customers on features and functionality provided us opportunities to make significant upgrades to the application for our existing customers, while also making the OnTime application available to BlackBerry users for the first time.”
OnTime, which launched in December 2010, for use on iPhone, is the mobile phone app designed to help people manage their calendar and busy, hectic lives. Since its launch less than two months ago, the OnTime application has experienced more than 800 downloads in a single 24-hour period, made the top 25 list of most downloaded paid productivity apps in the Apple iTunes store (no. 21), and is being used by people in 14 countries.
OnTime’s growing popularity is rooted in its compatibility with all existing computer-based calendars and its ability to enhance how users already organize their life and task lists. The mobile application uniquely known for its phone-based GPS capabilities, adjustable turn-by-turn directions and real-time traffic analysis and other connectivity functions, now has even more enhanced features.
Version 1.2 enhances the OnTime user experience with the following upgrades:
- Calendar filtering: allows users with multiple calendars to choose which ones interface with OnTime.
- Individual event selection: improves the control users have over events by choosing to disable events for which they don’t want alerts.
- Global drive or walk setting: gives users the option to receive alerts and directions for driving or walking.
- Improved mapping: enhances the mapping and direction function.
- Improved address lookup function allows users to find businesses and street address quicker and more accurately.
- Extended alert time means alerts now are sent up to one hour before needing to leave.
Early adopters of OnTime can purchase the app for $1.99 until April 1, 2011, and for $4.99 thereafter.
