buddyguard

Thanks to some dedicated developers, we BlackBerry users have a few options to give us secure peace of mind when it comes to our data and devices. Applications such as FindMyPhone will help you locate your misplaced device, or SmrtGuard will give you a whole host of options for tracking and security. Back in December, we covered a new service on the scene, which was in beta testing at the time. A few months and a lot of coding later, we have the updated BuddyGuard Pro v1.0.0.9, which really stacks up nicely against a service like SmrtGuard. It's available for a one time fee of $3.99, rather than a subscription, so thrifty users may want to take a look. Features include:

  • Lock: Remotely locks your phone and displays a contact information screen. Stays locked until you enter your password, even if the phone is rebooted!
  • Alert: Helps you find your phone by playing a loud tone, even if your phone is in a Silent or Vibrate-only profile. Also locks your phone to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Locate: Uses the built-in BlackBerry GPS and sends you a link to the mapped location of your phone.
  • Backup: Remotely backs up your contacts. Use to archive your current contacts, or save them if you need to wipe your phone.
  • List: Emails you a listing of the data on your phone. Allows you to verify what a Wipe will do without actually deleting your data.
  • Wipe: Remotely wipes your BlackBerry to prevent someone from accessing your personal data. Removes Calendar, Contacts, Emails, Phone Logs, Memos, Tasks and Files on your SD Card and in Device Memory.
  • SendPwd: Remotely retrieve your password in case you've forgotten it.
  • Help: Remotely receive a listing of the supported commands.

Contest: We have 50 licenses for BuddyGuard Pro to give away! Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won't count.

First; we need to change the name of his application to Buddy Guard GOLD! Awesome app; if I win, great! If not, I'm purchasing it! THANX

-Ayz

This would be useful for me.

Suprah

i want a subscription! c'mon i never get to win a CB contest plz!

Spiral_ouT

Buddyguard is my favorite security app because the lock feature is so great. Once it's locked, there's nothing you can do to unlock it accept put in your pass.
Would love to win this one. Thanks for another great contest CB

thadaeus

Every time an app is offered I'm among the first to leave a comment and I never get one :(

sosoqtpinoy

Count me in plz!!! Thxz!

basilb

sounds wonderful currently using smrtguard, would love to switch to a one time expense app. Thank you

underway99

This looks a lot like the product that RIM is putting together. I'd sure like to try it now instead of waiting for RIM. And waiting. And waiting. And ...

Soullus794

Looks awesome, I would like one please!

eluic

I sure can use this on my 9700 :)

karamei

Sounds like a useful app.....for free!

Ms. Pri730

This application seems awesome and very useful...I would love to own a copy to install on my blackberry.

goaliegirl

Considering I've lost 2 phones in the last year, I NEED this! :)

Epic800

This would be great to have.

Geoff046

I recently had my BlackBerry stolen from me & this application would have saved me from having to replace it. I hope I get a copy!

jcagg1271

This look like a handy utility. In my workplace, devices are constantly turning up missing and I keep some sensitive data I wouldn't want out in the public (HIPAA, Employee ID, etc.)from my e-mails. I like the idea of remotely locking down the device, for sure!

BBKP

Be my first application for my blackberry. =/
Im new.

WebGddess

I would love to have a copy of this. having left my phone on the train, it would be useful to me.

A93hunt

So how does this compare to BlackBerry Protect, SmrtGuard, and Defender?

dx169

Would love to win a license

ibcop

This will be awesome for my new 9800!

gozirra

This looks like a great app, would love to be a lucky winner!

LyndellKell

I loved the beta version of the app would love to have it again in full glory

LyndellKell

Had the beta loved it was so sad to see it go pro but this would nake up for that

rroyy

One for me please.

geordiemagic

Camoberry

BlackBerryBC313

I've been known to misplace my phone from time to time. How can I get my hands on this helpful and secure app?

eliasso

i hope i will be able to win this one!!!

AFriske

it has found my phone several times. I'd like to give this one a try.

xonehitterx

I've used buddyguard since I first got my blackberry a year ago, but haven't had the $$$ to keep using it since it quit being a free app.

crfroggy

This is a unique way of protecting info on the phone. Really would like to get this application and try it. Does it work under OS 5.0?

SCrid2000

I'd love to win a free copy :)

scalemaster34

Wonder how many applications that RIM is going to make useless over the coming year? OS6 has a number of features that are going to cut-out a number of utility applications, and once BlackBerry Protect is available, I don't see the need to "pay" for an app like BuddyGuard or several others...

As an enduser, I like the fact that RIM is adding more value to the OS and making it more functional. As a developer... I'd be a little unhappy.

zedt3

I'd love a licence.

petoria

I think this would be pretty useful, considering my first 8900 was stolen and I didn't even have a chance to get it back, so this app seems pretty well built!

Amnerox

Maybe this time ;) THX!

TillMarch

I do, I really, really DO!! :D

cooliosam

extra security is always good!

bruiser615

I can use this frequently and would be a lifesaver. Mememememe

legolaszor

I would be glad to receive a free copy I live in venezuela and there are thieves in every corner Good afternoon for everybody

AgentScribe

I need to win a version that will work with the Torch 9800 I am buying next Thursday!!! :)

Sashko

Sounds like a pretty interesting app for sure.

breakmedown

I'm not particularily worried about my phone being lost or stolen, but it could still happen, so this would be nice to have. I'm considering paying for it, but I'd be way happier getting it for free!

dustinshepard

Sounds like a great program! I use SimpleTrax currently however this program seems to kill SimpleTrax...well in its Trax...

idunnowe

Good luck to everyone.

KuDdL3z

I really need this app. I hope I win this time

raorth

This would be great on my new Torch I get next week. Can I have one please?

charlamagne

I will be testing this one out for sure. I lose my phone a lot.

scottaco

What's thriftier than $3.99? Free! Count me in.

marylyn@smokeyjoe.net

App... would make me feel a lot safer if my phone got lost

bold1193

In a world where anything can be stolen, its good to know that there is something out there to protect at least one valuable!

ellas_1

I could use this. Im paranoid about my blackberry and have all my information in there. If I were to lose it and someone had it, I would need a way to wipe it and track it. Please pick me!

asggold

valorian

Isle B.

Wow, sounds like just what I was looking for when I found SmartGuard. Not sure I've used it to it's potential because of the subscription, so Buddy Guard Pro looks more like what I was looking for.

bobblegate

I'm always worrying about losing my phone. This would be awesome!

Fatboy

would like a copy of this

elmejor1009

I had the beta version of this app and it was amazing. I have smart guard now but I can tell you that buddy guard is much better. I'd love a copy. Keep up the good work crackberry. Loved the coverage of the torch, which I'm getting for my bday, Aug 13. Great timing RIM. Great excuse lol

bigal77

Sounds real interesting, pick me auto chooser!!

mlirubbish

Sounds like a great app!

joseph27cohen

I would love to win this time. Thanks CB for the contest.

elmejor1009

I loved the beta. I have smart guard now but buddyguard is better gor sure. Keep up the good work crackberry. Love the torch coverage

coolguy78240

IM THROWING MY HAT IN THE RING FOR THIS ONE.

WolfeOnIce

but the sub fees seemed kinda outrageous for what it does. Would love to see how this one measures out.

deadcenter

What a nice application to have for any blackberry user.

actuallylovemystorm

Storm2 owner could use a little LUV this week!! C'mon!

sillynstuff

I felt so protected when I was using the beta, I would love to have the pro!!

jho51e

I would love to have one!

dclav

I used the beta and it was a life saver. My kids lose their phones 3.8 times per day and BG found them every time. Definitely want the Pro. Thanks!

lilhvn4me

Awesome! I'd love to have this! Thanks, CB!

gpquinn

I love the free version...pro would be better. Best feature: uses the bg password to lock your device, so you can remote lock even if you don't have a device password set (or its been compromised).

Leopardmech

Sounds like a great app, more security is always great to have.

mededitor

I have every app that I consider necessary on my Bold 9650---except for a security app, which I keep putting off. BuddyGuard Pro sounds like it will meet my requirements and will be the perfect final "must have" app for me. I'd love to win a copy!

melstringer

I should like this application very much, indeed. It is an excellent concept and combination, as well as truly useful given those of us who practically live via our Blackberry!

jacobj86

Here's my awesome comment, hope I win!
