PeeKaWho v.1.160 Reviewed!

PROs/CONs

PeeKaWho is a great little app that emphasizes customizing how the app works rather than how the app looks. I seemed to have some activation problems at the outset (my activation code wouldn’t work for the first few days), but the application corrected itself shortly after. Aesthetically, pop-ups are clean and provide users with just enough detail.

PROs

  • Looks decent
  • Functions very well and allows for a significant degree of customization in this area

CONs

  • You can’t allow pop-ups to remain on the home screen indefinitely.
  • Fonts could be smoother and the pop-ups could use a cleaner, sharper look.

FINAL CONCLUSION

PeeKaWho is a great app. It does what it does well, emphasizing function over form overall. On the other hand, pop-ups could use a face lift – you should be able to customize the look a little more. There could be more functions added: disabling the auto fade away for pop-ups is a step in the right direction, and the ability to flag emails would also be nice. Overall, however, PeeKaWho functions very well and I definitely recommend it to both business and consumer users. While I believe it lacks some necessary functions, rumor has it they have a released a beta of a newer version (1.161) that adds the functions suggested earlier and more.

RATING

3 and ½ out of 5

    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.

    Ya judging by the pics they show on their website (and here) it does look nice. Just change those icons!! Haha.

    We are rolling out v1.165 in the next couple of days. It will have Email / SMS LED support, and much more.

    Currently there is a 7 days beta trial v1.164 out.

    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.

    Is there a trial version?
    I hope so, why would anyone be incline to pay not knowing how good the app is?!?!

    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 want that background, anyone know where its from ?

  13. 13 Karen

    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?

  14. 14 Karen

    I take that back - I just rebooted and SMS is working in V 1.2. Thank you Smrtguard! :)

    Karen,

    No problem!!

    Happy Holidays
