I recently won a BBAlarm from BBsmart
. I also purchased BBSmart because Neil, the CEO, was such a nice guy and so responsive. I thought I'd share my thoughts on the products for anyone who might be interested. BBSmart Alarms Pro:
This progam is excellent. It is really a far superior alarm product to the alarm that came with my Curve. You can set multiple alarms, designate the tones used, set the snooze, set the day or days you want the alarm(s) to go off, etc. The display when the alarm goes off is a large digital clock which is great for someone like me who has a hard time seeing before putting on his glasses in the morning. The snooze time also counts down letting you know how long it will be until it rings again. The one drawback is that you set your BB to auto-lock after a certain amount of time, you have to unlock your BB before snoozing the alarm or turning it off. Easily remedied if you care. BBSmart Email Viewer:
As many of you know, BBSmart Email Viewer is an html like email viewing program. Instead of seeing a lot of html coded text in your BB emails, the program actually shows you the pictures and banners, if you want to see them. You can also fully customize the fonts and backgrounds for your emails. I have not discovered if you can change the background for different email accounts, but it does seem like this is possible. In the Options menu, you can manipulate the email in a number of ways, and even add a "SmartNote" to the incoming mail. This is basically a message to yourself that displays in the email text. You can type in what you need to do in response to the email, etc. When you close it, it puts a "!" next to the email so you know you've made a notation to it.
BBSmart fully integrates with your current email viewer and does not disturb the way you have mail set up. For example, if you have all your email accounts pushing to the main viewer, it will not change it. You can toggle BBSmart on or off if you want to switch back and forth from the Smart view to the regular one.
In short, very happy with both of these and I recommend them to anyone who has a need for a better alarm or better email viewing capability.
