In return for £2, BlackBerry App Shozu offers to connect to a spectacularly long list of social networking sites.

All the major ones are covered by Shozu - you can check Facebook, change your status on Twitter and upload photos to both Flickr and Picasa's web galleries.

Shozu's integration with each service is excellent - most, including Facebook and Flickr, require you to click a link in your email to authorise the application to access your data. It's a necessary security step that should reassure you your data isn't going to be left open to everyone on the internet.

Uploading images to Shozu is a snap, although it naturally depends on the strength of your data signal. It's much easier, for instance, than trying to navigate to the pictures folder on your phone from the web browser. Alternatively, if you want to send a picture or video to a specific person, you can opt to email it instead.

Shozu works fantastically as an all-in-one social networking application. It has wider publishing capabilities as well. It can connect to WordPress, Google's Blogger service, and Microsoft's Live Journal. And, if the news is unfolding in front of you, you can connect directly to citizen journalist sites such as the BBC, or CNN's Exchange site, plus Reuters and ITV.com.

Shozu Expert Verdict »

Compatible BlackBerry handset, internet connection
  • Overall: We give this item 10 of 10 overall

If you rely on keeping people up to date, or you use social networking as a marketing tool, being able to update dozens of sites from one application, Shozu's price is well worth it.

  • Facebook for BlackBerry review

    Facebook for BlackBerry

    You can already access Facebook through your phone's internet browser, but this free application is nevertheless a must for addicts of the social networking site.

  • BlackBerry Bold 9780 review

    BlackBerry Bold 9780

    The BlackBerry Bold 9780 looks identical to its Bold 9700 predecessor, but features more memory and the new BlackBerry 6 OS. A refreshed home screen, various software enhancements and a better web browser are improvements.

  • BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 review

    BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900

    The BlackBerry Bold 9900’s superb keyboard, fantastic design and great display make it without a doubt the best BlackBerry ever produced.

  • BlackBerry Curve 9320 preview

    BlackBerry Curve 9320 preview

    The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is RIM's latest budget smartphone. It should come with a low price and its battery will last you over a full day, but it offers no real upgrade over previous model Curve devices.

  • BlackBerry Curve 3G review

    BlackBerry Curve 3G

    RIM has kitted out its entry-level BlackBerry Curve smartphone with 3G connectivity. The BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone looks identical to the BlackBerry Curve 8520, but adds 3G and GPS capabilities.
