TinyController lets you control your BlackBerry from your computer - We have 25 copies to give away!

By Michelle Haag on 30 Nov 2011 11:09 pm EST
Looking for an app to help you control your BlackBerry from your computer? TinyController is a new one that does just that, whether you are a Mac or a Windows user. If you are on BlackBerry OS 5 or higher (including new BlackBerry 7 devices) you can now connect your smartphone to your computer via USB, WIFI, or bluetooth and control BBM, email, SMS, Twitter, and more. This allows you to use the keyboard of your computer instead of your BlackBerry's smaller keyboard or touchscreen, among other things.

You can adjust the image quality the TinyController displays on your computer to match your connection speed, which is handy while using bluetooth and wifi. You can also use the app to capture screenshots from your device from any app you're accessing.

To use TinyController you will need to install the desktop side of the app from the TinyController website, and the BlackBerry app from App World. The developer recommends you try the app before buying, so he has made a 14 day free trial available! If you choose to purchase TinyController after the trial ends, it costs $9.99 which is quite a bit less than similar apps.

More information/screenshots and download TinyController

Contest: The developer of TinyController, Yohanes Nugroho, has sent us 25 free copies of the app to pass on to you guys! To enter, leave a comment below. The contest ends Sunday at midnight PST. Good luck!

TinyController lets you control your BlackBerry from your computer - We have 25 copies to give away!



Now for a techie like me, this would be a great app to win. Oh yeah I guess i'm first too say how great it would be to win on of the best giveaways CB has to offer. A playbook giveaway would be even better!

Would be awesome to win this for free! But still, great price for the app, may have to look into it even if I don't win. Good find!

As a user of the Pearl 8140, Storm 1, Storm 2 and now the Torch 9850 I feel I am someone who deserves a free copy as I have weathered the storm with BlackBerry and will remain loyal in spite of the noise from the iPhone and Android crowd.

This would definitely come in all sorts of handy for me... I'm crossing my fingers and hoping I'm one of 25!

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I want TinyController.

This is a very useful app for me. I had a similar app called MyPhoneExplorer for my Sony Ericsson phone years ago. Would really love to have this app for my 9860.

quite the useful app. Future editions should all users to use their come computer using their phone or playbook

This app would make me look soooo much less like the nerdy geek I am - I'd not be typing on the laptop with the 9900 bridged to the Playbook beside me, stopping to pick up the Blackberry to type a BBM response, back to the laptop....

Working everyday here in Jakarta from minute to minute with my BBM (the number one source of communicating in Jakarta/Indonesia) this app would save me from picking up my Blackberry eachh and every minute to answer incoming messages... (and painful fingers woehaaa)... So this great app would be very welcome to me!


This sounds very useful especially since I was l laid odd at work. Much
easier to access email accounts. Sounds very useful.

This sounds like it would be a great tool while I'm at work! The computer gets used a lot, but I always have to look over at the BB.
Hope I get a copy from this contest! Thanks CB!

Would be awesome to win this! To think, though, that we'll be getting BB SMS on our computers sooner than on the PlayBook! :-P

This would be a really cool app to have, i can see me freaking people out with this one. Thanks in advance CrackBerry, TinyController & Yohanes Nugroho!

Hey for working on client services were you can get you phone all the time by your side, this can help to stay in touch. Awesome

Really looking forward to finally win something. I would love this application as a lot of times when I'm working I need to BBM and would love to do everything directly from my computer.

this kind of app is one of the most useful app for blackberry and smartphones in general. please let me win a copy crackberry! :)

Now that I am at my computer much more in my job than I used to I could really use this. And multiple connection methods. Much better than what has been offered in the past.

I haven't signed up for competitions in a while as I want others to get the themes and apps that I find not very useful.. This one on the other hand is AWESOME! I hope I get a copy :/

Sounds like something very useful at a much nicer price than the competition. I think I'll have to try this one out even if I don't win.

I was naughty all year :'( Santa is ignoring me this Christmas!! Have some pity and give me my only gift these holidays :D

If this will eventually let you control your phone from your PlayBook??? I hope I win a copy, it would make much better use of my charging cradle at work with my 9800!

Really need this app. Am always in front of computers and can't get my balckberry out of my pocket fast enough.

sounds like an amazing and useful app :) hope i win!! 9.99 doesnt sound to bad for this though, but imma try my luck!

Now that sounds like a sweeeet app !!! Would be GREAT for work ... and for fun ;)
Who says BlackBerries are getting no love ? Keep the great new apps coming !!!!!

I haven't one on a crackberry contest yet, but I sure would love to win a copy on this contest. This app would totally rock and complete my 9900, playbook, desktop trio all rockin bbm and blackberry email. Please oh please.

TinyController could really improve productivity.
does it work seamlessly with the Bridge and PB as well?

WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS! it would be a huge convenience to have this app, especially as a student...wouldn't even need to look away as I am studying. Congrats to who ever wins!!

dave weber I love showing my friends how my Bold 9930 is leaps and bounds above their Androids...this new App would would be "deal closer". Please send one my way!

Just downloaded the trial, this seems to be a very good app, almost on par with Vlingo. Vlingo and TinyController together equals major win. I would love to have this app for free after the trial period is over!

This is exactly what I am looking for. Please do pick me, as I'll be using it all the time. I will give you guys feedback on how the app is. This will be for my 9930 on vzw. Thanks!
