Contest: Enter to win 1 of 10 copies of Fixmo Tools!

Freebies Of The Week:

TextWarrior

TextWarrior - TextWarrior is a text editor for BlackBerry devices, geared towards power-users. It grew out of frustration of the lack of a basic text editor in the BlackBerry (MemoPad doesn't qualify). Surprising, considering BlackBerry devices have such excellent keyboards and screens. While we are at it, why not add programmer-friendly features like syntax highlighting and an expanded symbol screen. Best of all, TextWarrior is free in cost and open-source!

** Note ** This is an alpha version and the source code would only be available after the beta release. This release is meant to gather user feedback, suggestions and bug reports, and will help in deciding which features to add in the next version. Help from Spanish, German and French speakers to verify the localized interface is also much appreciated.

Features:

  • Syntax highlighting for C, C++, and Java. Multi-line comments and multi-line string literals are not supported (yet).
  • Tab display. Insert a tab by pressing Shift+space. Customize the width of a tab in the Options screen.
  • Full horizontal and vertical scrolling of text. Word-wrap is not likely to be supported in the near future. If word wrap is important to you, try BBNotePad, another free program.
  • On-screen search panel. To switch between the panel and text area, press Shift+Enter.
  • Search forward and backward.
  • Replace and replace all.
  • Categorized symbol screen. The symbol screen can only be accessed through the main menu. Pressing the SYM key (for BlackBerry devices that have it) has no effect. If no symbols are inserted, check that TextWarrior has permissions for keystroke injection. Permissions can be set in BlackBerry Options -> Advanced Options -> Applications -> TextWarrior -> Edit Permissions -> Interactions -> Keystroke Injection -> Allow.
  • Standard BlackBerry shortcuts for select, cut, copy and paste are supported.
  • Select all.
  • Supports opening of text files created in Windows, Unix/Linux, Mac OS9/OSX and most other operating systems. If the file is subsequently edited, it will be saved back in the original format.
  • Near-instantaneous opening of files saved in Unix/Linux format, regardless of size.
  • Localization for Spanish, German and French.

Fixmo Tools

Fixmo Tools practically turns you into Batman by becoming a virtual utility belt for your BlackBerry. Hmm I guess that would make your BlackBerry Batman and you Robin. It’s an ever evolving application that provides a slough of tools to enhance your smart phone. Some of the features include:

  • Undelete is your phone’s “recycling bin.” You can retrieve deleted email, PIN messages, calendar events, tasks, and memos. Undelete is integrated into the existing message system menus.
  • Flame Retardant helps you save face. It warns if you’re about to: • Reply All to a message on which you were BCC’d when you want to reply only to the sender, • Use potentially inappropriate content, such as profanities or excessive punctuation and capitalization (which can imply shouting), • Add unintended recipients. Flame Retardant will ask you to double-check your recipient list based on the domains you’re sending to. Keep clients and friends off of those internal business emails!
  • Silencer watches your calendar and completely silences during scheduled events. (No rings, alerts, or other sounds) For unexpected events, use Quick Silence, and set it for any duration. (The movie theatre will thank you.)
  • Forward/Reply with Edit lets you edit the original message when you reply or forward it. Like Undelete, this essential utility integrates seamlessly into the existing BlackBerry e-mail menus.
  • Battery Watch is your early warning system. It monitors power usage and warns you when your battery reaches low levels. Detailed statistics estimate how much talk, browsing, standby and other app time you have left so you don't run out at a bad time.
  • Memory Monitor is your phone’s “check up.” It tracks detailed memory stats and gives you an insight into your phone’s performance across both RAM and device memory.

We have 10 copies of Fixmo Tools for 10 lucky varments. All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered. Finally we get to the good stuff- here are the winners of the Nobex Radio Companion contest. Can I get a drum roll?

Great contest CB!!!

beachswt21#CB

Fixmo seems so cool i would love to have it.

ka3yan#CB

My $.02 is that the custom iGrip products are the best made for your BB. I have no stock or interest in the company, but their stuff is stellar. I used them for my Bold 9000 and I'm using one for my 9700 now. They are worth the $$.

asherwiin

This is the kind of app that I could really use!

hh2010

I want a copy, it will be great.

Sashko

This Fixmo app sure sounds like something else. Can't wait to get me hands on it :-D

This week's app roundup definitely had some cool apps, from cycling to BB remote control. Baaaam!

guardiangrace

I think Fixmo Tools would be perfect for my little old Crackberry!! Please and Thankyou!

chayes995

I tried it during the beta phase and enjoyed, Would love to have it on my phone again!

a006598

I have had one issue after another with my BB8520 since upgrading from my two-year old overly used BB8310 three months ago. These tools sound like they were God-sent to help resolve several of my issues. I would be so very grateful if my fellow BB addicts who are privileged enough to "work" at CrackBerry would Fixmo-my-BB!

Ginbill

Would love a copy of Fixmo
