Just Found Pocketlife for Storm - 95XX
Ok i searched for this and i did not find it in the CrackBerry Forums,
So in light of that i found this 3rd party app for the Storm they say it is for the 9500, but it works on the 9530. It looks as though there is four sections in this App that lets you connect to a Pulse, import contacts, search Windows Live Maps(GPS Works), and the fourth looks as though you can Select favorites from the other three sections one thing though in this section looks like you can track your GPS (i have not tried this yet mainly since i haven't left the house since i found this). So have fun. It is kinda interesting since you can update your locations to friends and also see other friends locations.
Here is the Site i found it.

Nice app, but it sucks in my book. Free only during Beta period and you have to create an account because it's not a standalone app. I don't like apps that require logins on 3rd party servers to function. The concept is really nice though.
Yea. I know what you mean. I is a great concept but after playing with it for a while I have found that I really do like the concept I would like to see this app not have to work of the 3rd party server, and if wasn't working off the 3rd party site it wouldn't need the registration..anyways it is juts something I found while looking around on google, and I thought I would show it to peiple

Guys, I am on and off involved in the development of Pocket Life.
It's true: after launch end of December they had issues with the 9530 version, but it is resolved since last week (the download site automatically detects your version).
Personally I like the approach as well, and it's early beta. From what I have seen there is heaps of good stuff to come in the next couple of weeks.
The registration approach might be a downturn and I guess that won't change. But from what I understood access/usage will remain free also after beta. We might see some premium services though which is fair enough in my eyes since there are many partners and cost involved with a location based service like this one.
For the time being I use it mostly with 4-5 close buddies to see where to meet up for drinks which is pretty cool, because you can save and share the bar your in or can directly upload pictures to their pulse time lines.
Let's see where this is headed...
I also like the fact the windows live search used the gps very well. I think that hardest part was that i put it on and it literally felt like my phone slowed down and had random freezes.. i will more then likely uses it on and off though i did like the tracking and the WLS.

Identifies my Storm (9530) as an LG XV1000 and will not download. After I start the download it says "Download Failed". Would have been nice to try this app. Oh well.

I just regged on it and will try it out. Seems like it might be a fun and cool app.We the unwilling led by the unqualified for so long with so little we now attempt the impossible with nothing.
Define irony. Bunch of idiots dancing on a plane to a song made famous by a band that died in a plane crash.

Registration for Pocket Life
I also came across this (looks like a typical BB user behaviour ). Seems like the recaptcha is not yet supported on any BB browser.
So you either register via the web (end-to-end): You need to click on the confirmation link via your computer email account and then pull up your web browser (i have firefox 3.0.5). That works fine.
Or you can confirm the SMS/txt link you receive onto your Storm and log-in with your user/pwd on Storm.
Seems like this is true web and mobile app - so they expect users to use the app on both laptops and mobile. i.e. i had to set up my facebook feed via the website - which would be too tedious on the Storm anyways.
btw - i like the Pocket Life interface - looks like Storm=iphone+ ...finally.
