Office Hot Shots

The folks at NickelBuddy have just released a fun little utility and game all in one with Office Hot Shots. It is both a highly configurable locking application that replaces the default lock on the device and also provides a pretty darn fun office paper toss game. Here is part of the official overview:

  • When used as a lock application, the Office Hot Shot screen will display when any of the user configurable lock conditions are met. For example, you could configure it so the lock screen displays everytime the backlight times out, keeping prying eyes from seeing what's on your device.
  • Touchscreen users could set Office Hot Shot to launch when connecting on a phone call, keeping your device safe from accidental touches from your cheek during a call. Once activated, Office Hot Shot displays on your device, letting you see in a glance useful information, such as the day, date, time, unread emails, missed calls, battery level, and more!
  • Office Hot Shot comes bundled with a free game where you try to toss a ball of paper into the office trash can. You have to account for wind speed and direction to guide the ball into the can. Set the record and claim the title of Office Hot Shot!

Be sure to click through to the Office Hot Shots description page for the full details on this one. There are a lot of ways to configure the lock, and you can get an overview of all the info displayed. It's available for BlackBerry Smartphones with OS4.6 and higher (both non-touch and touchscreen) for $2.99.
