Soti, Inc. has released an update to their desktop and device software for Pocket Controller-Pro. This updated version comes with some brand new features as well as minor improvements and fixes. If you're not familiar with Soti Pocket-Controller Pro, it allows users to remotely control their BlackBerry from their computer and comes packed with ten features to increase efficiency. If you have clumsy thumbs like me, this will make typing emails and texts a breeze. Changes include:
- Performance - Remote Control performance has been enhanced to consume less bandwidth and be more responsive. CPU usage has also been reduced considerably.
- Keyboard Shortcuts - Easily access the event log from your desktop by typing in ALT-LGLG from your keyboard; Use the Shift and arrow buttons on your keyboard to select multiple files or text for easy copying or deleting; Use the ALT button on your keyboard as if it was the ALT button on your Smartphone.
- Smartphone Orientation Detection - Automatically updates the skin and screen of the device to reflect when the Smartphone is opened/closed or rotated all in real time!
