Berry Pix also seems to have a couple troublesome glitches. For example, using the â€œStart Slideshowâ€ option just doesnâ€™t seem to work: it will either stay on one image or quickly jump to the end of your image group. Your slideshow will work when you let your BlackBerry go into screensaver mode, but it seems silly to sit and watch your BlackBerry for 15 seconds just to show off photos from your trip to the guys around the water cooler. A bigger problem was to be found when I wanted to add email-attached images to my Berry Pix folder. While using OS 4.1 the menu option just wasnâ€™t in the place Colabnet indicated it should be on their website.
But Berry Pix isnâ€™t all bad â€“ in fact, in some ways itâ€™s quite cool. The software offers a bunch of neat transition options for your image slideshows and itâ€™s kinda neat to glance over at your BlackBerry during the day and see a photo of your family pop up. Itâ€™s also really easy to create â€˜categoriesâ€™ (their version of photo albums) and use one of your Berry Pix pictures as a background image. The new backup/restore option is also great for making sure you donâ€™t lose any of your pictures if you have to wipe your device.
The real question isnâ€™t whether or not Berry Pix 2.0 is a good piece of software (itâ€™s pretty good, though) but whether Berry Pix is worth the 22.50 USD asking price. If it were closer to 5 or even 10 USD, Berry Pix 2.0 would receive an automatic BlackBerry Cool recommendation. As it stands now, we can only recommend that you try the software for yourself and see if youâ€™re that much of a picture hound that youâ€™re willing to pay the steep asking price.
