Default BB Messenger Bots

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know of AOL Instant Messenger Bot-like things out there for BB Messenger or other free messenger.



AOL or AIM has things like "Yellow Pages" or "Moviefone" that are added to your buddy list. When you send them an im they respond with the desired information automatically. It is a quick and easy way to surf the web for tidbits of info you might require fast.



I first saw this on my desktop AIM and then later on a trial version of VeriChat. There are tons of them and are very useful.



I know you are saying well Berry411 can do all these things but this is just another way to accomplish this.



I thought maybe even within the constraints of BB MEssenger.

Thanks

Brett

BlackBerry Messenger doesn't use "bots" so to speak.

Using the "Search" feature, I found this excellent thread on Berry411, as written by the author of Berry411.

Berry411 3.50 is now available

"Berry411 provides free and convenient mobile search on your Blackberry. Itxxx8217;s cheaper, more effective, and more complete than calling 411.

Berry411 is the second most popular Blackberry application on the BlackberryToday Popular Software List. More than 100,000 copies have been downloaded."

Straight from the link. It is a mobile search tool.
