Searing Media let us know that they’ve released a new version of Parrot for BlackBerry 10 (version 2.1). This update is for users running OS 10.2 or greater.

New Pro features:

  • Call Recording: You can now be prompted or automatically record phone calls within Parrot. Tested to work with OS 10.2.1!
  • Password Protection: Password protect your track lists. We have implemented one-way encryption using the BlackBerry OS Cryptographic Kernel. Passwords can be recovered using your BlackBerry ID.
  • Import Tracks: Bring your outside recordings into Parrot to manage them.
  • Media Key: The media key can be enabled to start and stop recordings.

New features for everyone:

  • Style: A brand new icon, theme and style to the app. You’ll notice sharper lines and a darker palette.
  • Speed boost: We have worked hard on making the app load faster and feel smoother.

They have added two new permissions:

  • Phone: Allows Parrot to listen for phone calls to start and stop recordings.
  • Post Notifications: Allows Parrot to prompt users on the call screen outside of the app to record their current call.

You should see version 2.1 of Parrot for BlackBerry 10 get pushed to your device via BlackBerry World. Otherwise, you can download directly here.
