This is something I’ve been looking to use for some time. The Blackberry’s PIN messaging services are really good — but of course, it’s rather difficult meeting people to talk to via PIN. So when Jeremy forwarded me a link to the Sam Sethi’s recent TechCrunch UK article about Pinppl saying ‘You’ll love this’, he wasn’t wrong.
Kudos to Pinppl’s developer, Paul Anthony (have a look at his Pinppl profile). I think this sort of service has the potential to be massively well used by Blackberry users such as myself. I’ve registered already and knocked up bit of a sparse profile. You never know, there might be some eligible young female Blackberry addicts looking to connect with a hunky mobile blogger (this, of course, is me).
Sam reports that:
Pinppl [is apparently] pronounced by some as ‘pineappleÃ¢â‚¬Â
I really don’t know how you get to ‘pineapple’ from ”pinppl’ — surely it’s ‘pin-people’?
Who knows. Anyway I’ve played with the web front end, just haven’t tried it on the Blackberry yet. I shall do so later on when I’m on the train.
If you have a Blackberry, fly over to www.pinppl.com, register (it takes 20 seconds), and add me as a friend.
