SmrtGuard for BlackBerry is a big favorite here at BlackBerry Cool. The software does a great job of bringing features usually reserved for people on BES to the average user.

The application lets you backup and restore personal data OTA, track your device with GPS, and wipe the device in the event of theft or loss. This is a must-have product for any BlackBerry user who does not already have this functionality built into their company’s IT infrastructure.

SmrtGuard have updated their product with the following:

  • More Robust Remote Wiping that wipes out Password Word Keeper, Facebook, Phone Application.
  • Backup and Restore secured by Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.
  • Easy and secured activation verification process with secure key exchange mechanism via HTTPS. For details on how to activate (new purchase) and reactivate (after switch device), please see here.
  • New “Smrt Backup” that only backs up if there have been changes in your personal data. It is a more efficient way to backup!
  • Support added for User1, User2, User4, User4, Birthday, Anniversary fields in Contact backup and restore.
  • Fixed an SMS restore and backup bug where outgoing SMS message greater than 160 characters were not being backed up properly and impacted the restore of SMS.

SmrtGuard is available for a monthly, semi-annually, or yearly subscription.

The latest version of Facebook has been out over the weekend and there are some great updates.

The first thing you’ll notice is the navigation experience is much more fluid. The homescreen and subsequent pages have been updated so everything is just a click away. All of your friends’ recent status updates are located on the first screen, and you can click into each profile to see pics uploaded and tagged, calendar events as well as interact with your friend via comments, pokes, messages and a phone call option.

The photo viewing experience has been great improved as well. As you browse a friend’s photos, you get a nice slideshow of the album pics. You can scroll easily through the pictures which are displayed in full at the top, and thumbnail preview at the bottom. To comment on a photo, just click the picture and select the comment option.

There’s some additional language support that will be of great interest to the international user. The app now supports:

  • Thai
  • Indonesian
  • European Portuguese
