- Call or e-mail co-workers on their HotSchedules contact list with one click
- Access their HotSchedules inbox and send messages
A release enabling manager-facing functionality is expected to become available in the spring.
The HotSchedules BlackBerry app is now available from BlackBerry App World for $2.99.
