Telnic Launches .tel Blackberry and iPhone Applications

Telnic logoTelnic, the registry operator for the .tel TLD, announced the launch two new free and open source applications for Blackberrys and iPhones are now available for download.

The applications are available from or for Blackberry users and the the Apple App Store for iPhone users.

The applications allow mobile phone users to:

  • publish their location through an embedded map linked with the iPhone’s GPS
  • update their status using profiles depending on how they want to be contacted at that time
  • add new, remove, hide or show items of contact information
  • manage, add or remove folders and profiles which group contact information together
  • manage privacy settings for friends and colleagues
  • add or remove keywords that help people searching for .tel owners contact information
  • directly lookup a .tel domain inside the address book, including private information from friends
  • search for a .tel domain inside the address book
  • add any .tel domain as a new contact or associate it with an existing contact
  • send ‘friending’ requests and accept or decline them depending on your TelFriends status
  • quickly change their .tel profile to make sure your contacts reach you the way you want.

“Dynamic data stored under the control of a .tel owner can now jump straight into people’s address books without having to subscribe to any other web-based directory services, making address books ‘live’ again,” said Henri Asseily, CTO and Chief Strategist at Telnic.

“These applications are open source and free to use, and developers are already looking at the opportunity to use .tel information on other platforms and in other communications technologies.”
