One of my favorite utility applications, Gadget Box, has received a nice update - adding even more functionality to the already great app. The application that turns your BlackBerry 10 smartphone onto a virtual tool box may not be an app that you use every day but It has stayed firmly on my BlackBerry since it was first released.
New features in version 1.11.1 include:
- Speedometer: new optional Odometer (long-press on it to reset to zero).
- Magnifier: new Mirror mode! Has separate zoom controls from the magnifier!
- View/Share option for screenshots from Camera gadgets (Level, Protractor, Magnifier) which does not require the Shared Files permission (Shared Files is still required for automatic saving).
- Active Frame: Battery will now show yellow/red colors at configurable percentages.
- Lux Meter: Can now output readings in Foot Candles.
- Morse Generator: new 'Pause' pro sign and a slightly cleaner UI.
- Bug fixes: Originally the main purpose of this update.
As always, more gadgets, features and enhancements are on the way. If you haven't already tried Gadget Box I'd highly recommend it. You never know when it may come in handy.
