PeeKaWho

We’ve talked quite a bit about PeeKaWho here at BlackBerry Cool, but no one’s actually reviewed the product. BlackBerry Cool 15 nominee Robert Kao of SmrtGuard – the developer of Followup and SmrtGuard – brings Blackberry users this great piece of software.

If you’ve been looking for a reliable caller ID function for your incoming email and SMS text messages, look no further. PeeKaWho is great if you want to view your email or text messages at a glance while performing other functions on your Blackberry, like composing an email or surfing in the browser. You can also disallow PeeKaWho pop-ups when using certain applications, great for when you don’t want to be interrupted while you’re writing an email, viewing a video or dialing a call

Installing and setting up PeeKaWho is simple. First, purchase the software from our online store. Then, click the link provided in the confirmation email to download.

It will then ask you to select the OS you are running on your device. Select the correct link to download the right software version for your device (be prepared for errors if you mess this up!)

Download and install.

Finally, reboot. You can then navigate to your applications menu and click the little envelope icon (the one with the “@” on it).

    Nice review. Give it a few more features as suggested and you’ve got yourself a very useful application for the Blackberry (update those icons! Haha), and one that i’ll definitely purchase. Can’t wait to try this on the Storm.

    It will probably look amazing on a storm – it actually looks pretty good on a bold.

    One point on the “Con”, you can allow the popup to stay on indefinitely if you uncheck “Auto Fade Popup” option.

    Thanks for the review and support.

    The storm should kill the iphone due to verizons stake in the less populated rural areas. People are looking for a high speed data phone that not only works in the city but works in the backwoods as well. Att’s gsm service lacks in these rural areas.

    I’ve downloaded version 1.160 and the SMS popup is not working. I’m running 4.5.0.97 on a Verizon Blackberry 8330 Curve.

    Johnny,

    Yes, with some carriers, they prepend a 1 in front of the number. We have a beta out that fixes that issues(plus tons of other features). Check our website, there is a download link in the front page.

    Also, for problem with current stable version, it is best to email
    support @ smrtguard . com

    I also have the Curve/Verizon and SMS is not working. I have tried the betas and have now upgraded to V 1.2 and it does not work on those versions. SmrtGuard support has been very supportive but not been able to resolve. Anyone?

    I found this program to be very frustrating so I have tried to delete it. First of all, when the new message pop up comes on, it interrupts everything you are doing and you can’t type, for example,until it disappears. It also seems to hang up my Blackberry for a protracted period of time…maybe 5-10 seconds after the message disappears. It would be great if the pop up disappeared when I typed something. And the hang up of the device is very frustrating. Now, after deleting it, my status light seems to blink and stay on a lot. I don’t know if this is related. Maybe it didn’t delete? What does the yellow status light indicate?
