Do you need to keep certain things private from prying eyes? Then Stealth Book by Oswald Designs may be just the thing you need. Similar to the app BlackBook, Stealth Book filters your incoming calls, SMS and emails from specific contacts and keeps them safely hidden away on your BlackBerry device.
With Stealth Book all calls, text messages and emails are stored in the Stealth Book app instead of in their native apps. There's no icon to launch the app. You create your specific key combination to launch the app (default keys to launch can be changed in Options).
If an e-mail, call or SMS comes in from one of your Stealth Book contacts, the message will never show in your BlackBerry inbox. Instead, the message will be kept within the Stealth Book app itself. Your BlackBerry will vibrate when you receive a new message. There is also an option to have a customizable pop-up message. The app automatically times out and closes after a few seconds of non-use. Stealth Book has a couple more cool features that basically turn your BlackBerry into your Black Book.
- Completely Hidden Contact list
- Hidden Text Messages
- Hidden Emails
- Edit emails while forwarding
- Hidden Call Logs
- Auto-reply on call disconnect
- Backup/Restore Contacts
- Enhanced Call Logs/Text Messages/Email Filtering
- Threaded SMS
- Customizable message pop-up alerts
- Vibration alerts
- Closes Automatically
- Enable/Disable Message Pop-up
The options and features of Stealth Book are sure to help anyone keep their information private, for whatever reason that may be (we here at CB won’t judge you). The main difference between this and the fore mentioned BlackBook application is the cost. BlackBook will set your wallet back $3.99 while Stealth Book is only $0.99 in BlackBerry App World. Stealth Book is available for pretty much every BlackBerry smartphone running OS 5.0 or higher (available in most countries).
