SixTools For BlackBerrySixTools For BlackBerry

SixTools from ShaoSoft has been updated for OS 7 and brings along some new features. If you're ticked that the latest BlackBerry 7 devices only have one convenience key, SixTools has your solution. With this handy app you can easily add functions to your volume keys and mute key giving you bonus convenience keys. You also get a battery meter, low battery alert, holster sounds and much more. The biggest addition in this version is that of a screenshot function - so now you can set any of your volume or convenience keys to snap a screenshot. SixTools then lets you send the image via email, Twitter, BBM and more. A few tweaks were also made to get things rolling smoothly with OS 7.

Contest: We have 50 copies of SixTools up for grabs. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST.

I hope the 320-odd cheap bastids who don't get a free copy spend the lousy three bucks to download this cool app. Shao is the premier boutique BB app developer, and he deserves your support.

Will be so useful for those who love practility, busy road warriors or just those who love to show-off in style. I'd love to have this app please fellas! Cheers :-)

I desperately need more short cut keys! I really missing having the ability to quickly change profiles and access my sms with just one button! Help me please!

I would love to have an opportunity to win a copy. I have used Blackberry in the past and am planning on switching back from iOS with the launch of the 9930 on Sprint.

This would be sweet on my new 9900!!!! I picked it up after a hiatus to iPhone. BlackBerry is in my blood.

Me most definitely want! I've been trying to figure out what to use as my convenience key, more options only makes that decision easier!!

I've always wanted this application. I hate they took over the only speed test available for Blackberry and hopefully I can have it back =D
