LittleBrother is a lightweight application by emacberry that lets you inform friends and family about your location. The app is very helpful in letting people know when you’re about to arrive at their home, or it can also be configured to turn on your Wifi radio when you arrive home or at the office based on cell tower you’re using. This update to the app features a lot of BBM-connected features.
Here’s what’s new:
- Post our current CELLTOWER base location to your BBM™-Profile (via LittleBrother Recent Activities)
- Post our current WLAN base location to your BBM-Profile
- Post Sector IN or OUT Notifications at your BBM-Profile.
- You can customize the message that will be posted in your BBM™-Profile via the Sector definition settings. When you include the String ‘@@@’ in your customized message then LittleBrother will include human readable location information (WGS84) in your profile update.
- If your BBM™ Contacts have also LittleBrother installed, then they can click on any of your LittleBrother BBM™-Profile messages to open the LittleBrother Map Popup Dialog showing the location.
- Post foursquare Sector Checkin’s at your BBM™-Profile
- Send Sector definitions to your BBM™-Contacts
- Define BBM-BlackList Sectors: When you enable the location updates in your BBM™-Profile you can define additional so called BBM™-BlackList Sectors that will suppress the BBM profile update when you are currently in such a BBM™-BlackList Sector.
- Export & Import of Sector definitions (*.lbs files) – By default Sector definitions will be saved in your BlackBerry Home directory in a folder called ‘LittleBrother’ – To import a Sector definition (lbs file) simply open it directly from the eMail attachment or double click on it in FileScout (or FileScoutLite – or any other FileManager)
