Contest: 50 FREE Copies of MeterBerry for the Storm!



I have been looking to get this for a while now, pick me pick me. !!!! I really want to see what i am loosing hourly, seems inconsistant on a day to day basis.

Poorly designed apps can leave too much garbage on the heap.

We need to use the better designed software and raise the bar for developers.

The BB is no better than the apps it runs.

I like to give each OS a run for its money, and having MeterBerry will really enhance my ability to evaluate each one. I hope I win!

I would use MeterBerry to EASILY monitor memory and battery usage. From what I have seen and heard, meterberry is an excellent tool that takes the basic information the handheld provides and gives you the actual tools to perform analysis and possibly correct some issues.

I would very much appreciate a free copy.

This looks like a fantastic program, I'd love a copy to see how working in the basement of a concrete building really does affect my 'berry!

I heard this was a great app. Looks sharp too! I'd use the app to monitor several different themes to see how prevelant the memory leaks are in each one. I've been suspecting google maps too!

Awesome contest, I really like the MeterBerry idea and presentation after looking through there site, as I'm sure I am not the only one with a touch of free mem ocd I will be using this to monitor for memory leaks and trying weed out wasteful apps I dont need.

Thanks CB

i bought a bunch of apps i wanted, but this is definitely one app that i NEED! my memory often leaks to 0. yes, 0! what is that all about? i have no idea but i need to get to the bottom of it. i haven't won anything on here yet so i hope this one is the first!

I plan to use it to replace QuickPull, and reset my device only when needed, not every night. I would also like to know when memory is leaking and how much certain apps affect the leak.

That looks like a fantastic app for debugging and improving this device. I doubt I would use the information for anything beyond my own personal curiosity, but I'd like a shot at a free copy!

would definitely use this to track down memory leaks and monitor overall performance. good stuff!

My battery life started off great and I could go days without charging, but lately it seems to be draining much faster. This app seems to deliver some helpful metrics such as Avg Discharge Rate.

I love it when developers actually make a functional app. that will gauge your device, sweet. Thank you.

Well I have always wanted the app because its quicker then scrolling through a bunch of menus and checking everything.
I plan on using it to better tell when to pull my battery and if i accidentally left apps open. New blackberry user loving it everyday.

common kev, can i please win somthing on Cracberry?


hook me up and i have been wanting this for a while,

thanks alot

i will not only use meter to analyze my BB's memory usage and battery discharge rates, trending them over time to see peaks and valleys to figure out how, why and when it runs better, but i will also show it to all my friends, especially the iphone users so they know how awesome both my storm AND Meterberry actually are. you know, do a little WOM advertising. rocking out the sweet new digs that be the meterberry and my awesome storm with the new RIM .122 OS.

I like the uptime runtime. Thats good for checking time between battery pulls. I'd by this pup even if I dont win!

I Really, Really could use a free copy of MeterBerry! I am always playing with apps, so watching for memory leaks an reseting my memory is very important to me, so pick me for a free copy! Please and Thank you!

This app is something I can see really improving the performance of my Blackberry. I also have a slight obsession with constantly checking the status of things, so this should help feed the obsession.

I've had my Storm for about 3 months now and can't seem to keep my App Memory level higher than 22. Tried all the tricks from the forums and think I must have a real drainer app somewhere. Maybe this would solve my problem!

I love the concept and really looking for something like this. I'm broke and this would really help me out.

Kind Regards,

I'm a theme developer and this would be useful in finding how much memory the theme is taking up or whether it causes memory leak. That's just one aspect of this great app!

Looks like a useful app, I especially like the idea of the battery temps I am outside in cold weather and would like to understand how cold the battery and device get when in my outer jacket pocket. Also like the idea of integrated boot option, still running .74 and need to boot a lot!

sure seems like this app could help me prove my memory goes from 30 to 1 in about 5 hours. And of course the VZW people want you to jump through hoops for a few weeks before they even think of replacing anything. There fun to talk to (heavy on the sarcasm)

Could be useful. I have had memory problems of late. Not now, since i had to wipe to fix an issue, but we see how i look after I get back up to where I had it.

This looks like an awesome little app for the Storm that I'd love to try out! My Storm never seems to have more than 30MB of application memory free and I'd love to see where all that memory is going!!

First time i ever posted here.. Trying to score some free swag..

Anyway ever since i started downloading apps into my storm I have been getting memory leaks and the OS seems to lag. I could use this app to see what is causing these problems..
So hook me up CB...

out of all of the apps that are out. i feel that this would be the best program to have to figure out which apps are causing the memory, or battery to fail

I want one to test memory leaks and battery life on the new .122 OS for the Storm. Gimme Gimme Gimme!!!!!

I have two Storms, one on .75, one on .113. I plan to see which has a more stable memory and which has a longer battery life. Also I'm going to see which 3rd party apps use the most memory. I'm hoping .113 comes out on top because I like it a lot more than .75. Give me a copy!!! I'll let ya know!

This is one app I would pay for. I have concidered purchasing this one to see why I am sitting at 7 meg of memory even after a reboot. with any luck I will win it for a change

I'm just finishing the install of the Bell .122 OS to test against the .122/5.0 Hybird that was installed on my Verizon Storm...

I could really use the capabilities and would enjoy sharing my findings with the forums...


It sounds like a great program to get a peek at what's going on inside your BB! Please enter me in the contest for a free copy! Thanks!

MeterBerry would be very useful in monitoring my Storm's memory usage as I boldly go and download new themes (daily!). And it'd be nice to have such utility app to tell me of the phone's vital stats in one place (and device reset without QuickPull!). Thanks.

I bought my BB to make my life better, and MeterBerry would help get my Storm to it's full potential. Who wouldn't want that?

I need Meterberry because I am running some hyped up OS for my Storm.
Gotta love the hybrid OS versions......



I'm on the road alot, not having my phone with reasinably battery is not good. I transport children and the though of running out of battery is scary. thinking i could be left with no battery or memory for and up date in the middle of nowhere with 44 screaming children is a horror story. Please keep in mind is more than an app for some of us, From Texas thanks for your time.

I have upgraded with every new OS released here, including the latest one that was announced today for Bell. Still losing memory, and have a habit of doing a memory clean hourly and a softreset almost daily!! Hopefully this program can help me diagnose when I am losing my precious memory and battery supply!!

This looks like a very practical app. I plan to use this to alert me to low memory on my Storm. It happens now and then if you download and then delete and move a lot of items, that the memory can run low.

Very interested in trying it !

Thank you,
Beate Varrecchia

Looks like it would be a great app to test all the beta builds/hybrids i toy with. Hopefully it can help me better assist the CB community with feedback about the individual builds/apps that are commonly used.

I would love a copy of this... memory leakage is certainly an issue and I would love to figure out what the heck is going on with my phone!

I'd love a free download. Sounds like a great way to monitor the battery, memory, etc and reset without a battery pull.

Its said that we need programs like this, why cant RIM just give us more memory and fix the leak. Oh well cool program.

My Storm memory is always leaking - battery is generally good. This would be great to have to monitor my memory. Thanks.

I plan on using this to find the memory leak on my storm, that possible? Also my battery is losing life daily...

i seriously need this battery doesnt last through half a full day, i need to know where and why im losing so much battery life when i barely use it throughout the day....please pick me!!!!

I think everything's been said before---

but let me repeat it once again: This should've been a feature already IN the factory bbs in the first place. It would be great to have an awesome app such as this!

Hope I win!

I'd love a copy of MeterBerry so I could work out which application is causing a memory leak, so I wouldn't need to reboot all the time!

With a free copy of Meterberry I would end world hunger and Global warming (or cooling, whatever happens to be going on at the moment)!!!
