There was a thread on this app back in April

Download and install apps in Media Card...

But I never heard any feedback from people trying it out.

Never in all my years of BB use has any app ever asked for permission to browser filtering. This and keystroke injection are the only things denied by my BES policy.

This app asks for permission to browser filtering.

What does browser filtering do anyway?

Can you elaborate? There have been some saying that this only lets you install apps from the SD card, but not actually run the apps INSTALLED from the SD card. Is this accurate?

I would consider something like this if the apps "could" be installed and reside on the SD card. Besides that, what would truly be the point of this product?

If you are still limited to the number of apps that can actually be installed locally, it does seem a bit pointless. From what I've heard, the settings get lost when you remove a program from device memory. However, I am wondering if that might make it easy to reload trial versions and get past the expiration problem. Other than that, I can't see a reason to buy the program.

honestly, it's a joke. the overviews for the program are specifically written using words that can be easily misconstrued into believing the app allows one to actually load programs from removable memory.

the truth is that you can only "load" (as in 'install') from SD cards.

the program is an interface for your desktop/laptop to organize infrequently used programs you can uninstall from your BB. "load" the .cod files into the program and it copies itself to your memory card. from there, you can install and uninstall the programs at will to your device.

simply a third alternative to OTA and Desktop Manager ONLY.

.pdf file to the instructions: http://mirror3.clickappsdownloads.co...nual.1.1.0.pdf

worst of all, there is no way to maintain any of your settings between installations.


i figured something was fishy as such a "revolutionary" product would have more than 640+ downloads on Handango.

That's too bad, actually.

I wonder if it's possible, however. Can a program load code from sd and run it? Or is sd access data only?

You can load .jar/.jad/.cod files on an SD card and use the Explore feature in Media to browse to the .jad file (IIRC) and install them to device memory that way. I've loaded apps from my SD card without this 3rd party app.

Yeah I did that before.

I wonder if it is possible to have modules ( something like DLL files for windows ) on sd so actual installed program can be much smaller. That would be nice if program is especially large.

I bought this software and basically all it does is load the .cod files onto the SD card. Then you install and delete using the software like the desktop manager. Problem is you lose all your data; I tried to "load" and "unload" SplashID and when I loaded it (after unloading it) I lost all my passwords. I had to restore from backup. I emailed tech support and after confirming that it really doesn't install apps on the SD card just from the SD card submitted an enhancement request to either swap a running app from BB memory to SD card or actually install to and run from the SD card. This is the response I got
"Thanks for your suggestion, the reason this feature is not implemented is due
to lack of support in the RIM SDK, we are actively pursuing a workaround
with RIM, expect the free update 2nd half 2008."
So I'm looking for ward to the free update
