Review: bThink


bThink LogoThis week, we’re looking at bThink from Perceptus, a light program for your BlackBerry designed simply to provide snoozable reminders with direct access to associated contacts’ e-mails and phone. BlackBerrys come preloaded with plenty of personal information management apps, like Tasks, Calendar, and Memopad – that really covers the big bases, and should take care of most people’s needs. That’s why bThink caught our eye; it was trying to bring something new to the PIM table. In a nutshell, bThink lets you create e-mail, call or blank reminders which link up with your Address Book and Tasks.

Let’s see how busy this bee is…

The Big Kahuna of HTML mail viewing


BBSmartAfter 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.
