Default BEIKS releases LexSpell spelling checker 2.1, adds automatic proof upon sending email

Please Login to Remove!

DALLAS (January 19, 2008) -- BEIKS LLC, the world leader in language, reference and entertainment applications for mobile users, announces upgrade to its popular LexSpell spelling checker for BlackBerry handhelds.

One of the late arrivals on the BlackBerry proofing tools scene, LexSpell was the first free spelling checker for BlackBerry handhelds operating in offline mode and not requiring the use of Internet connection.


The new version 2.1 is a service upgrade replacing the outdated version 2.0, which has expired for non-registered users at the end of the calendar year 2007.

It also brings a demanded new feature by the application users - automatic proof to outgoing email messages. This feature is only made available to registered LexSpell users via a checkbox in its Integration Options menu. This checkbox - and the new functionality - will only appear after the application is registered.

The functionality is also available to all enterprise users.

Another specific of the new release is the requirement of BlackBerry Handheld System version 4.2 and higher, whereas the old version required version 4.0.

Registered LexSpell users can upgrade at no additional cost by pointing their BlackBerry browsers to BEIKS' website optimized for mobile access (Welcome to BEIKS mobile!) and downloading the latest LexSpell from there.

Booby,

Do the existing dictionaries work with the new version? I am going to give Version 2.1 a whirl.

Are you adding functionality that will highlight words that are not spelled correctly?

Having auto check is a great feature - will help your product immensely.

I like the layout but wish it had highlighting features like empower insta spell. With high lighting I would buy it.

Kolev,

I am finding that the auto check works with email from my BES account, but not from my BIS accounts.

Any update on this? Will this work with non-BES accounts? It would be nice if it would work with all accounts.

This is new to me.

I am using it on BIS account, so the problem is likely not the account type, but more likely the fact that there are more than one possible outgoing account.

Can you tell me a way to create more than one account for myself in order to try and reproduce the problem locally?

You can sign up for another email address with your ISP and add it to your blackberry and that might do it.

LexSpell is working great with my BES Account, not checking on the other two accounts I have on my BB.

I have attempted to install a language dictionary OTA (e.g. English (British) and German (Classic Rules)).

However, I keep getting :

907 Invalid COD
Unable to
import ZIP file"
Same error message on both 8100 and 8800 using BB Browser.

Have you been able to test this with multiple BIS accounts or with BIS/BES accounts?

Bump again - would love to have all three email accounts on my 8800 auto-checked by LexSpell. A great product!

RIM confirmed this to be a problem on their end and said they have a fix in place ready to be deployed.

It has something to do with security and files within files, i.e. it only affects large COD files.

Hi kolev
would I be correct in assuming that the fix will be rolled ut with the new OSs? Or is it something we can dl from blackberry's website?

Would you consider posting the cods for a desktop install as an interim solution? Just a suggestion no biggy.

Many thanks for your response...
