Textender

While at CES I had a chance to hang out with Jason from berrycodes.net, creator of the popular app Textender. He explained that he had an update that was soon to be released, and generously offered to give away some copies to the CrackBerry Nation. If you have not heard of Textender, it is an app that allows CDMA users to send text messages longer than 140 characters. New features in version 1.5 include:

  • OS 5 compatibility
  • Now able to select from multiple phone numbers for a contact
  • Outgoing SMS are now marked with a message count i.e. 1/3, 2/3, 3/3
  • Textender is now in the system menu, allowing quick access from almost anywhere

Textender is on sale for $1.49 until January 31st, and compatible with devices running OS 4.5 and higher.

Contest: We have 50 copies of Textender 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.

AlioTheFool

fritze22

Nismode

This seems like a very nifty app for owners of 4.5 (like me) that don't have text threading :) I'm in

webmastir

thenamesguy

Looks awesome and very useful i would love a free copy!

jags316

This is one of those features that really should be in the OS. Not sure why my "dumbphones" from Nokia and LG could send extended texts on Verizon's network, but my "smart" phone can't.

Naivian

This is an awesome app. My friend had it and it makes it easier when sending a longer text. If I win great if not I will wait for the new ver. to come out and ima gonna buy it, either way it is a must have on my list.

cm99xj

No more multiple texts for the same message. In.

gmmech

maybe us CDMA users could start to take over the world if we had this app, we would be able to chat continuously

lorennayturbe

Grafixx01#AC

This would be so cool seeing as how I can't convince my fiance to stay with BlackBerry. She now wants to go with the Droid and that makes me mad since we text a lot since she is in college all day. This would be a great program!

BIG CAT 7

I used to have beyond160 on my curve but now that I have a Storm2 it is not able to be used on OS 5.0 i am not fast enough yet to type 2nd and 3rd messages threaded without the person im texting to getting the first message and having to wait for the next one. This app would be a lifesaver

cmcarter178

Sounds like an awesome app...pick me!

beegore

I'll give it a whirl please. ;)

sig20nal

I just could have used this app 5 minutes ago when I was texting the guys at my firehouse, then it was the first feature of my ritual morning crackberry.com check (not to be confused with my ritual mid-morning, noon, afternoon, late-afternoon, evening, and night time crackberry.com check!)

Nakihara

Pick me... souns like a great app..

mohebius

I realy, realy, r e a l y want one.. :)

jgarciabu

Awesome app. I want a free copy!

ofcpa

WyckedAnkh

This would solve all of my texting problems!!!

This would be a nice app to have. The character limit is more than moderately annoying.

LadyBug1383

I would love to win a copy of Textender! Please choose me!

scuebydue

CDMA users can do 160 characters not 140. But either way, I'll take one.

joford86

I always saw this app it might be worth checking out.

eyefro69

Pick me Pick me Pick me.

RLTAN

Finally I can text more than 160!!!!

js.krieg

If my text goes over 140 characters it breaks it up and sends as more than 1 text automatically, I don't see this app as anything exceptional or necessary.

bwbell85

I would love to have this app!

Batteman87

Would love to use this..... SO HOOK A CRACKBERRY BRUTHA UP!!!! "Pants on tha ground, pants on tha ground, hat turn'd sideways, gold teefs, lookin' like a fool with your pants on tha ground!"

My friends are going to love receiving one very long message from me rather than 20 short messages.

berryg1

I can send long texts, too.

vlmurphy

I would love a free copy of this! Sounds great and I would love to be able to text for more than 140 characters at a time!

jasper0201

GulfcoastGuy

Thisis just what I need. Being from the south it takes us along time to get to the point that is why I was always having to send multiple text. Cant figure out why I am so verbose, even when leaving this comment.

dabrownklown

I'm glad someone came up with this idea, when you have a lot to say and have to do it in 3-5 separate texts it becomes a bit annoying. Berrycodes.net I'll spread the word about you guys, I know women will love this the most lol..

H.E.

Would love to try.

falesq

An end to the 140 character limit...this is just what I need!

nba1991

I'd love to have this

hardslog

When my Tour was in for the trackball repair, I was using an HTC Touch Diamond CDMA phone and I was able to send texts beyond 140 characters. I would love to be able to send messages to my non-BBM contacts beyond 140 characters!

jaker35

winner, chicken dinner

witchyknitter

And since SS doesn't do this yet, I sure would like to have it!

laxchick

I dislike how the Blackberries unlike the other phones have a shorten amount of characters for text messages being sent and recieved. Instead of taking one message to send someone something it takes about three or four of them.

muneton17

I've been doing some thinking about getting this app. Its a sign. I should win it. Lol :D

rjr1049

Sure wuld like to have this!

germster

This would be a great app. to have. Give me Textender

Nomad6677

For $1.49 this is a must have app!

jsaman01#CB

would definitely come in handy!

flyman312

I hate having to send multiple messages!

nfaze

Great that it's updated for OS 5; may have to buy it if I don't win a copy!

richlallen

this app seems amazing. i always have to get creative with the sending of texts. i wish everyone could have a BlackBerry so i could just BBM them, but that isnt the case. Now ill never have to think of how to abbreviate words or what to cut out of a sentence. And now i can rant and rave for several messages at a time. im sure my friends will be thrilled!

educatedathlete

Textender should be basic in all phones. With this new OS for the storm, with all text being conversation style, you can't even save a text to write the second part in another text. Its terrrible.

jkviz

this would be awsome!! i miss not being able to write a longer text now and again.

jdobbs6743

Was using beyond160 with my Storm 1 but isn't compatible with OS 5. Sick of type multiple texts and trying to complete them before replies start coming.

Dizzymofo

I actually avoid using SMS because of the character restriction, if possible I use BBM. Great app idea, looks very easy to use.

Rusky

Would love to be able to text more than 160 characters at a time.

Is the character limit 140, I thought it was 160?

piphunter11

i would really love to give a shot on this..sounds pretty cool stuff there mate!!

Muddy13#CB

This app would make a welcome addition to my Blackberry!

LOY80Y

this would come in handy for me! =)
