What’s new in LittleBrother v0.5.0.5?

  • LittleBrother now supports the definition of up to 50 different Sectors - each Sector can have it’s own recipient (list) and own custom IN- & OUT-Messages.
  • Select a list of CellTowers (from the Local CellTower DB) and define a new Sector from this selection - The IN and OUT Sector calculation will then work on the base of the selected CellTowers.As long as you are connected to one of the CellTowers from the list LittleBrother treat this as IN-Sector as soon as the phone connects to a different CellTower the OUT-of-Sector message will be send to the defined recipient(s).
  • When you realize that an additional CellTower should be added to a CellTowerList based Sector then this CellTower can be added to an existing Sector via the LocalCellTowerDB List (via the #Menu)
  • For CellTowerList based Sectors an overview map could be displayed.
  • Delete a CellTower from a CellTowerList based Sectors at any time.
  • Additional checkbox for Out of Sector-Notifications: Notify after device reboot [OFF by default] - What does this mean? With the new feature to define multiple sectors the possibility that you are outside of one or more of these sectors is quite high. This would mean when you reboot your device (or do a battery pull) that LittleBrother would send to all recipients of these sectors the the Out of Sector-Notification. In order to disable the notification for a sector on a device reboot the checkbox can be unchecked.
  • When displaying a CellTowerLocation via the BlackBerryMaps popup then this map can be ZOOMED-IN [Key: i] and ZOOMED-OUT [Key: o].
  • GUI-Enhancements (like in all other emacberry.com applications: InputFields with Border etc…)

GPSiesConnect v0.9

“GPSies - Tracks for Vagabonds” is a great website where a very large community shares tracks for any purpose. GPSiesConnect allows you to directly access the GPSies.com database. Search for tracks for your sports and leisure activities. Download tracks in various formats to use them with other applications (like GPSLogger) on your BlackBerry.
