Blackberry Gets TiVo and MySpace, All in One Day

Blackberry users are getting two new services on their smartphones today.

TiVo has announced plans to let Blackberry users control their DVR recordings on-the-go with a new app on the way soon. The program will let you browse through program guides and schedule recordings right from the phone.

The other offering comes from MySpace, which unveiled a new Blackberry app to make messaging, commenting, and other services specific to the social network easy. The most interesting feature is probably the camera integration, which lets you take a photo and have it shoot right over into your profile.

Of course, it’s not exactly groundbreaking, as our friends over at Mashable point out. Facebook’s eerily similar Blackberry app has been around for almost a year. And TiVo’s had options for remote controlling via a network interface for ages, too. Still, it’s something new for the Blackberry and an understandable step for MySpace as far as mobile expansion.

Both apps, by the way, come from partnerships with Research in Motion.
