This is where Empower really shines. There isn’t a third-party application you have to launch in order to view translated e-mails. Everything works directly from your BlackBerry’s basic e-mail reader, and after half a second of opening your mail, URLs are truncated to a reasonable length. Changing Empower’s options are available through a new menu item accessible from your Messages list. InstaSpell follows suit, offering correction suggestions from the menu whilst selecting the offending word.
Outside of keeping URL lengths down, Empower supports images in e-mails, but takes some fiddling in options. Many users haven’t had any functional issues whatsoever. That being said, there have been a wide range of bug fixes and feature requests on the forums that the developer has been listening to. If nothing else, the HTML Viewer is being supported by its producers, which is significantly valuable.
InstaSpell slips a command into the menu that does a full-message sweep and stops by each misspelled word and offers a drop-down menu of suggestions, one word at a time, until your whole message has been scanned. For extra-long e-mails where you’re not necessarily checking the correct-as-you-go underlines, that’s a handy feature to have.
