The good folks over at SOTI let us know they upgraded their popular desktop and device software to v8.50. This updated version brings with it OS 7 support, an exit option, as well as some other improvements. Pocket Controller-Pro is a wonderful application that allows corporate users and consumers to remote control their device from their PC (including my personal favorite - BBM!) as well as being packed with other great features. Changes include:
- Support for BlackBerry OS 7.0 In our commitment to the BlackBerry platform, SOTI is proud to support all of RIM's latest smartphones. Native 7.0 support means better application performance on BlackBerry's latest devices.
- Pocket Controller-Pro now supports gestures! You can now perform gestures using your mouse or touch screen monitor! Swipe, scroll, and navigate your BlackBerry exactly the same way as you do with your touch-screen BlackBerry smartphones. SOTI Pocket Controller Pro for BlackBerry now gives you 100% of your device's touch screen experience on your desktop!
- Cut, Copy and Paste using Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V! Additional keyboard shortcuts have been added to save you time. You can now use your keyboard to Cut, Copy and Paste on the BlackBerry using the normal shortcut keys that you're familiar with on your desktop.
- Automatic Zoom! SOTI has added the ability to see the entire BlackBerry when you first connect to your device.
- Pocket Controller-Pro now has an Exit option! By popular demand, you can now easily exit the BlackBerry application when you're not using Pocket Controller-Pro and also prevent it from starting up at boot time so it doesn't use any system resources improving your BlackBerry's performance and boot time.
Soti Pocket Controller-Pro is available for all devices running OS 4.6 and higher and for PC's running Windows 2000-Windows 7. Existing users who purchased the software within the past twelve months are eligible for a free upgrade. Both the device and desktop software must be upgraded to function properly.
