LSphone is the developer of several BlackBerry utility applications that help you keep a close watch on what's going on behind the scenes of your device. They just let us know that they have taken 4 of their most popular apps and rolled them into one, forming Scanmonster. This application has everything you could want in a monitoring app including menu integration to show time, date, battery level & temperature, free memory, and open-apps count. You can click on any one of these items for more details and to perform a variety of tasks to recover memory or improve performance. Scanmonster is on sale right now for $1.99 (regularly $2.99) and is compatible with most BlackBerry smartphones.

Some other features include:

  • Detailed meters, instant/auto memory recovery or log erase, scan invisible apps.
  • Temp hi/lo monitor, overheat alarm.
  • Force-delete apps and modules, start background apps and services that may have failed or not started after installation.
  • Detailed meters (see screenshot) show RAM and Flash memories, file space free (internal, card, and application memory), virtual machine object distribution & handles, battery details such as voltage, charging rate, temperature, and status flags.
  • "Mercury" feature records highest & lowest temperature since phone started, and long-term, noting any too hot or cold.
  • Click "Memory" reading for instant lossless recovery of RAM and Flash, known as "garbage collection"; gains are shown. Select deeper options, such as erasing caches, clearing the log, or a Deep Recovery which requests apps to free some memory.
  • Automatic features (optional) include opportune timing of automatic lossless recovery, erasing of caches, and clearing of the log.

i have been having memory card issues since last night. if this app can help circumvent problems from occurring, i would love to try it.

thanks!

This app looks very useful, would definetly wanna win a copy.

The Force-delete apps and modules feature sounds awesome!

Most interested in monitoring RAM usage, but would also love to have easy access to the measurement of temperatures inside my BB.

I have a BB Torch and sometimes I have app crashing and hanging, but am able to switch between apps still using the BB button. This app would allow me to force closed the mis-behaving app(s) instead of doing a battery pull to get rid of the errored app(s). CB please find it in your hearts to extend a copy in my direction <3

The reason I would love a copy is that I install every single OS beta the comes out, also I'm part of the BB beta zone trying out some of the beta apps aswell. Having a detailed list of my devices meters, heat, and being able to spot memory leaks would be awesome especially with beta software installed.

Those are my reasons that I would love a copy ;)

This would really help me to understand why my battery keeps dieing so quickly, and keep a good eye on the performance. Thanks CB and LSPhone for a Great contest

Force-delete apps and modules is the best feature to me. It would be better if we have options to turn off startup modules (autorun when os bootup)

The detailed meters would be the most useful thing for me...to see what my phone is doing at any given time. Nice app!

A good temperature monitoring ang Memory Cleaning is a good addition to my BB I would love to see it in action in my 9700

Wow looks like a great application. Yet the feature that I really want is the Flash & RAM memory cleaner. I've seen some application that claim good results but have never actually seen one that works great.

Love to be able to monitor and delete my "invisible" apps as well as force quit them. I thinl I can get a decent extension of my battery life with this awesome looking app.

Hey Crackberry, I'm loving the forums thanks for keeping us updated always! Id love to win a copy of this app as it sounds really good! Automatic features are sounding awesome. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can I have a copy!

Its hard to say which feature i would be interested in most as they all sound cool but if i have to choose i would say the memory app has my interest.

i deff need this app
i need the force app or module removal tool
i have a reset module that will not go away and i have tried everything
this would be a big help

i think the most interesting feature i love to try is the "Mercury" feature records highest & lowest temperature since phone started, and long-term, noting any too hot or cold. Sometimes my blackberry got a suddenly heat temperature and i don't know what trigger it, love to know that "Mercury" feature can give me a notification alert if my blackberry 's temperature gets hot.. Hope to win one of the copies

I love the fact that it shows time, date, battery level & temperature, free memory, and open-apps in the menu. I hate going into status and checking the battery level, and I didn't even know I could check temperature. I'd really love to have this app. It would make life a lot easier

the one thing i love to see is how the "Mercury" feature works on my blackberry. Sometimes, my bb got hot all of a sudden.. Hope to win one copy to test how the mercury can send an alert notification if the heat gets hot or cold.. Count me in please..

I just love the fact that this awesome application can substantially improve the performance of my torch. I really want this guys. Please give it to me for the love of god.

This sounds great, but I don't know if I can just choose one part of the app that would be most valuable! Thay all sound good!

Am very interested on the mercury feature, because my battery always becomes very hot, so I would like to make a follow up of the temperatures during a certain amount of time and see why the batt becomes hoter or colder.

That dang battery meter on the Torch is never to be trusted! I prefer the hard numbers rather than a little meter. I can better gauge how fast my battery is draining that way!

I have a bad habit of back arrowing out of a couple of apps but this doesn't close them (like google maps and MLBAt Bat) so they use up battery in the background. Love to monitor that more closely and the memory recovery feature. Sounds like a great app to keep my Torch running effectively and efficiently. Pick me for a free one...thanks for your generosity in advance.

I love the additional detail that this app can provide. Also seeing the 'invisible' apps would be gold to preserve the battery.
Fingers crossed.

Would love this for many reasons. I have always said the torch gets a little hot. Would love to have some sort of confirmation to this...ya know just so I don't think I'm crazy. ;-)

I would love a copy of this. The "Mercury" feature that records highest & lowest temperature since phone started, and long-term, noting any too hot or cold data would be nice to have.

I already have their menu scanner app but haveing all of their apps rolled into one now that would be a nice thing to have, hope I win.

Click "Memory" reading for instant lossless recovery of RAM and Flash, known as "garbage collection"; gains are shown. Select deeper options, such as erasing caches, clearing the log, or a Deep Recovery which requests apps to free some memory.

^^^
that caught my eye...i want one pls

Im looking forward for detailed meters, im a memory freak and always taking care my phone doesnt leak to much memory and im always optimizing RAM. This would be the perfect app for me.

I would definitely use it to find my background running apps. Need help with memory issues too:)

The force delete/quit apps feature will come in handy for sure

Force-delete apps and modules, start background apps and services that may have failed or not started after installation.

I'm always having memeory issues, small, but they are there, so I would use that option the most if I won a copy.

I would be interested in the memory recovery app after trying a few that did more harm then good it will be nice to try this one thanx

Great Idea to offer a "suite" of your best applications to encourage greater sales in those idividual applications. I would love to at least have the suite to determine the applications I would most want to keep on my BB Torch. Thanks for the contest and Thanks to LSPhone for the donation. One more reason to keep your BB Adiction alive via Crackberry dot com.

the detailed meters and the battery temp features are the most needed by my at this time. i would love to try this app.

Click "Memory" reading for instant lossless recovery of RAM and Flash, known as "garbage collection"; gains are shown. Select deeper options, such as erasing caches, clearing the log, or a Deep Recovery which requests apps to free some memory.

^^ would be awesome! :D

I'm mostly interested in the "Force-delete apps and modules, start background apps and services that may have failed or not started after installation" feature. i would love to know why I keep getting service failures every time I reboot.

The most important feature to me is the ability to do memory management and recovery. Forcing apps to close would also be pretty handy.

What a great all in one monitoring app. I'd love to view where my memory usage is at as well as details on my battery.

I own a BB Torch and it sometimes lags. I usually get that annoying little clock icon in the middle of my screen when I search the web, listen to music, and watch youtube videos. With the ScanMonster, it would really help me keep up with my memory and processor usage.

The Memory monitors and garbage collection would be handy, especially if it means less battery pulls, but the one feature I would really like is the temperature monitoring. I regularly have to work in walk in freezers, the ability to monitor the health of my Torch would be extremely useful.

The battery meter and apps running feature would assist me greatly.
I am always leaving apps runing that drain my battery.
Thanks for the chance CB!

I'd really love to try that overheat alarm, as I've noticed the temp of my phone get extremely low during the winter, and now during the summer I bet it'd go the other way. So the other temp monitoring features would also be rather nice & handy :-D

This looks like a neat app. Could use this on my 9550 that has been having bad battery drains as of late.

I could really put this app to use! I always love apps with meters and in this case, the deep scanning/cleaning of the junk from the cache and more. Looks like an utility of the year app to me. Hope to win a copy!

I like the idea of having all of the features of this software in one application. Battery, memory, view apps in the background - I've got three different apps for this now and I think they're all hogging resources to keep running. Having one do it all is an ideal app for me. Would look forward to trying this out!

I'm always wondering which apps are running in the background and which are memory hogs! Would love to win this one! :)

I think this app would be a huge success since it combines apps that are useful. jus wishing that i could have a taste of this amazingly developed app :)

I'm actually interested in many of the features.. I am a stats freak... so anything that will give me details about my device is just fine... For this though I guess I will say the temp. monitor.. I would like to know if my phone is running hot at times.

A good temperature monitoring ang Memory Cleaning is a good addition to my BB I would love to see it in action in my 9700

Hey this app looks and seems amazing....hopefully will win a copy but if I dont....will gladly pay to have it...great job LSphone

The thermometer part seems useful as I charge my phone overnight and the app might be usefulin warning me just before the phone decides to explode.

This Scanmonster app would be perfect for me & my Torch - most interested in the meters & temp info. Thanks!

Looks like a very nice collection of apps rolled into one :D

Would love to win, and even if I don't I MAY look into purchasing it when I get time later on... However getting it for free would be even better
