WICKSoft LinkWorks

Best known in the BlackBerry enterprise game for their Mobile Documents solution, the crew over at WICKSoft have just released a super-handy utility for the BlackBerry. WICKSoft LinkWorks isn't an app that you "open and use" per say, rather it is one that you install and reap the benefits of for thousands upon thousands of emails to come...

Have you ever received an email with a link that you just couldn't open? Clicking the link doesn't work, and copying the link in to the browser won't work either. Now there is a solution. WICKSoft LinkWorks enhances the URL detection on your BlackBerry so that you can open all links, even those with spaces, from your BlackBerry. This is ideal (and a must have!) for people who use SharePoint, or who receive messages with links that won't open properly from the BlackBerry.

WICKSoft LinkWorks Features:

  • Detects all URLs, including malformed URLs and URLs containing spaces.
  • Specifically designed for web portals like Microsoft SharePoint
  • Runs on any BlackBerry
  • Simple to install, easy to use. It 'just works' and requires no interaction.
  • Does not affect or alter your web browser.

Totally awesome. It drives me bonkers when the I receive an email that contains a link that isn't clickable (occassionally happens on emails sent from CrackBerry.com's ringtone and wallpaper galleries). This is the solution I've been waiting for. I was thinking RIM would get around to fixing this issue for free, but at only $5.00 WICKSoft LinkWorks solves the problem today. Yes, Please!
