I haven't seen anyone mention this yet but I bought this app last week, $3.95. Great money spent. It pops a small window up when you get an email so you see who it came from as you're composing another email, surfing the web, whatever. Really neat idea.

I saw this app reviewed on another site last week and jumped on it. It is a simple app, and I cannot believe its function has not been part of the OS to this point.

Great app and well worth the $3.95. Aside from JiveTalk, this is the second app I have paid for.

Yeah, same here, I don't spend money on too many apps but this one is very useful. And yep, I bet RIM integrates this at some point.

I just got this app a few days ago also. It's great -- is very handy to see the email preview and it has several configuration options.

I got this app the other day, and I absolutely love it. I bought it mainly since they will be adding a function for SMS as well soon !

I just ended my 3 day trial, so yes. The program works great but I doubt I'll buy it. This doesnt pop up though with SMS, right?

3 day trial is available, but this app is so inexpensive, who needs a trial?

If you are concerned about getting too many, you can set it to pop up for only certain email addresses (ie. boss, wife, girlfriend etc.)

Also, just got an email today that the app has been updated.

I think I noticed something somewhere where the developer said they are working on future versions that would work with SMS and BlackBerry Messenger.

SMS has been promised on the Crackberry page referenced above in the comments on that page.

I got the new update and it's now doing sms. Only one problem, at least for me, it takes you to message inbox. Which would be great if I didn't have message and sms separated.

Are there two threads on this app? I thought I posted about a problem w/the display of images...

Anyway, I took a picture of my wife w/my Pearl, picture looks fine on-screen in the Media viewer.

Set it as her picture in peekawho, and it's compressed horizontally - she looks like she's been squished in a vice. Doesn't matter if I set it to resize images or not.

Is anyone else seeing this? If not, what's the work-around...I don't have time to go around resizing a bunch of images to suit the app...

Either I am confused, or you are confused. I don't have any idea where you are setting images for contacts, or even what that would do in PeekaWho.

I got an email today also that it was updated, but when I use the check for updates in the app, it says latests version. I guess maybe you have to login at Crackberry to get it the update...

Ok, so I upgraded and now it won't let you make the pop-up fade away less than 10 seconds. I had it at 5 before. 10 is too long imo.

You know,my wife tells me I shouldn't use my BB while watching a movie ("men can't multitask"). . Turns out she's right. I was thinking about PictureId, and clicked into the wrong thread! My bad, going away now. ;)
