BBSmart Alarms Pro v.1.24 Reviewed!


Some of you may remember BBSmart form their HTML Email Viewer - another great product we reviewed earlier this year. Well back in April, they released their Alarms Pro app - a huge step up from the default alarm app provided by the BlackBerry OS.

Head-to-Head: Empower vs. BBSmart


Michael Kerfeld, an enthusiastic reader of BBCool, has submitted a great head-to-head review of Empower versus BBSmart HTML e-mail viewers. Head-to-head will be a new BBCool feature where we make two competing products slug it out until one emerges the victor. If you’d like to review for BlackBerry Cool, contact us.

We all know that the Blackberry Bold is coming, and with it RIM’s new, highly anticipated OS 4.6. A sneak peek of the features have been revealed, as well as to those using beta copies of the OS 4.5 on their current devices. RIM has given everything a touch up with fresher fonts, a more pleasant browsing experience, and snappier performance. OS 4.5 even brings a facelifted email viewer, but HTML email viewing still remains a thing of the future for those of us without an Enterprise Service activation or a carrier with BIS version 2.5. The days of endless URL strings continue.

BBSmart giveaway this Thursday


BBCoolThe folks at Mobihand just let us know about a giveaway happening this Thursday, January 24th. - with any purchase over $5, you get a free copy of the BlackBerry e-mail viewer, BBSmart. I’ve spent a lot of time with BBSmart, and it’s a top-notch app that seriously increases the quality of your mail-viewing. Considering it normally retails for around $25, spending $5 on some other stuff to get it included is a sweet deal. Obviously, the easiest way to get the most out of it is to find some cheap software to put you just over that magic $5 mark, like e-Mobile Color Pearl or a month of Voice on the Go. Just enter the code SMARTFREE at checkout on Thursday for your free copy of BBSmart.

The Big Kahuna of HTML mail viewing


After using Empower HTML Mail viewer for awhile, I decided to give BBSmart a shot. It didn’t take long to see why it’s so popular. The image loading in e-mails is quick, the links are well-formatted, and you’ve got some great options for saving templates and turning e-mails into calendar entries or tasks. It’s carrying a beefier pricetag at $24.99, but you certainly get what you pay for. If you’re looking for something a little cheaper and lightweight, Empower is still a solid option.
