Keep Track of Your Running Applications with BeAlert - 50 Copies to be Won!

By ObiGeorge on 14 Apr 2010 11:16 am EDT

BeAlert is a new application by BeSoft, that allows you to visually keep track of your currently running applications. It puts an icon (with counter) in the notification banner of your screen, ensuring you always know just how many apps are running at once. The counter will not include apps that are necessary to run your device, such as the phone application and messaging app. You can also exclude any apps that you find to be necessary for you, from this counter. Overall, BeAlert is a nice little app to keep track of your running apps. It acts as a reminder to shutdown those unnecessary applications to save your precious battery life. It is on sale for $1.50 until April 16th for all devices running OS 4.6 and higher.

Contest: We have 50 copies of BeAlert 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 wont count.

Keep Track of Your Running Applications with BeAlert - 50 Copies to be Won!



Perfect for those of us who download any and all apps that pique our interest and may have 30 apps on our phones at once!

I constantly have the problem of being unsure of what apps are still open and draining my battery.. I would love to win this app!

Can't see how this would not be a high selling is a must have when it comes to those who run multiple app and want to save battery life!

I have a Storm 9530. So, you know how important battery life and memory is to me. I check pretty often, but BeAlert would help me SOO much!

Why the heck would you pay money for this? Hold down the menu button and you have the exact same thing! QuickLaunch also has this functionality.


This app would be a God sent for me. I always keep apps running in the background forget that I do and drain my battery. This app would solve that problem for me :D. Hope I can win a copy.

This app would be great for my phone, I have been looking for some sort of app like this for a while! Good luck everyone, Hope I win though ;P

I am a first time BB user,have used 2 generations of WinMo devices previously. Am loving the BB experience, or let's say enjoying my CrackBerry moment, and am sure it's to go for long long time. BB is better in every way to winMo but the only missing thing is the DeviceManager kind of interface to display the applications running in the background! I think this app will definitely fill that void.I haven't tried it yet, but by the description should save some extra Data Usage too for am sure no one would like that!

Hope this will turn out to be a fav among all BB users.

Was in a meeting all day and during breaks I was IM'ing as well as using BBM. Didn't really think to shut it off...I just finished my meeting and looked at my batt...and went WHOA...why am I down so low after charging all night and not using all day..duh because you have apps running...would have been nice to have an alert tell me that and then shut down because it was idle!!!!

I for one am resetting my Tour 4 times a day due to memory loss. I see the normal apps running when I press/hold the  button. What I really need is an app that shows hidden apps like BerryJoose that constantly run but do not show up anywhere. If possible I would like to win this app to see what it will show. Thanks as always CB. And of course BeAlert for giving free copies out to win.

I hope to win a free copy but would even consider paying for it. I always think I have apps running that are draining my battery but never had a way of really checking.
Thank you BeAlert!

This would come in handy because I never know which apps are running and usually shut them all down...

Sounds like a great idea to me. As a Blackberry newbie, I'm still figuring out how things work, what to do and what not to do. I've already drained my battery down once due to having too many open (and unknown that they're open) applications. File this under utilities for dummies (like me)!

This would definitely help me with keeping track of all the programs running on my phone at the same time. GImme Gimme Please.

Sounds interesting. Sign me up! I'm constantly opening the task switcher to monitor the number of open apps. Having an icon in the notification area would be handy...

i need something like this, my phone has alot of battery draining apps so maybe i can use this to manage my battery life

I never know how many apps I have running at any given time, so this would be great. vcut down on const5antly having to charge my BB.

I would most definitely love this app more than anybody on the planet. Not sure about life on other planets but earth for sure :)

very cool app i would get so much use from it. actually would be nice to see how my bb runs when i dont forget to close stuff that im not using
