Leave It On by ShaoSoft

Leave It On is one of my favorite BlackBerry apps. Designed by ShaoSoft, Leave It On is actually two apps in one and it has just been updated to v4, making it even better. If you're not familiar with Leave It On, you can set it to automatically keep your BlackBerry backlight on in up to 8 applications. This is particularly handy when using Google Maps, the media player, and so on. Leave It On also brings fully interactive pop-ups for tons of apps, so you can know at a glance who that email is from and more! The pop-ups are fully customizable, including text color, duration to stay on screen, custom animations and more!

Major changes since v3:

  • Pop-ups can now be set to 3 mode: Interactive, Non-interactive, Interactive on Home Screen.
    • Interactive mode means when a pop-up is displayed the pop-up takes over the input so you can click (or scroll in the case of email and sms previews), clicking it launches the app the pop-up is for.
    • Non-interactive mode the pop-ups will no disrupt anything you are doing, but you cannot click or scroll the pop-up.
    • Interactive on Home Screen, is what it implies, the pop-ups will be interactive on the home screen only and non-interactive in all other apps
  • Complete re-write of core code. Translates to better performance.
  • Improved scrolling of preview messages (emails & sms)
  • Updated UI
  • Many many tweaks/fixed/improvements

Leave It On is on sale now for $3.99 (reg. $5.99) and does have a free trial available, and recently a free lite version was added.

Great app!

JamesWolford

My wife has the garmin and she is a bold user, I am a torch user so with me bigger display I get to use BB gps programs as my garmin replacement. Web browsing would be useful with this too as long as I don't fall asleep and wake up to a dead battery lol does it have an option to stop backlight after battery reaches a certain level? That would be nice.

summerlin18

I'm going to agree with those that say Leave it On would be great for the browser! Thanks Shaosoft and Crackberry!

bobbykun

count me in! this will save me the trouble of always having to wake up my screen! and the pop up is a plus!

Akainzo

This is a great app. I very much would love having it from Crackberry.

Bowgirl64

I think this app would be great while I'm out in the garden, listening to my music so I wouldn't have to stop & take my gloves off to see who's singing or what the song title is - I'd be able to just pull it out of my pocket. Now that would be something!
Also, when I'm using the maps app (as a passenger) it would be nice if the image would stop fading to black. Invariably it does so about a nano-second before my husband asks when the next turn is coming.(!!)

zerp2310

that's terrific app. give me one pliz

ixecloud41

This would be really helpful when using the web browser.

This would make my experience with Google Maps 100% better! Even more if it could keep the functionality where it goes off when at a stop, but comes back on when moving. Either way - This would rock!
