Ever noticed how BlackBerrys put the BIS email signature at the very bottom of an email chain? That isn’t helpful for anyone. With SmartSig, you won’t have this problem.

Other features of SmartSig 2.0 include:

  • Create, edit, and delete email signatures directly on your device.
  • Automatically places the correct email signature in the proper location within your outgoing email messages.
    Signature conditions can be added to test the To, CC, BCC, From, Subject or Message Body for the presence or lack of keywords.
  • Signature can require that all conditions be met or that any condition be met in order to apply the signature.
  • Backup and restore your signatures using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  • Enable and disable individual signatures.
  • Support for all BlackBerry 4.5 and higher devices, including BlackBerry 6.

Features of the Antennagate app include:

  • Track antenna signal over time
  • Carrier antenna signal
  • WiFi antenna signal
  • Customizable refresh interval
  • Customizable display options
  • Screenshots
  • Use to find best reception indoors

Mobholic is a fun app that lets you track your BlackBerry usage. The app has recently been updated with new features for tracking your stats, as well as a host of bug fixes. This app is turning out nicely and since the developers are students, it’s always good to support the community.

New features include:

  • New website with 3D charts.
  • Charts accessible also from the mobile app
  • Ranking per Email Sending/ Receiving / Deleting
  • Ranking per words typed in your Email.
  • Ranking per distance traveled with your BlackBerry (if mobile phone supports GPS)
  • Top Movers in the last 24 hours ranking.

Mobholic is available in App World for $2.99. While buying the application some might still fall on the old version of Mobholic due to an App World bug that is still not fixed since December. Email the developers support line and they’ll give you the updated version with proof of purchase.
