Most of them are, until the market opens up a bit, hopefully with OS4 rolling out, there will be more thirdparty freeware aps. Until then there isn't much. This has been discussed in depth in a few posts around here.

but at least it's a step in the right direction!

That's fine of course.

<plug>
But, for example, can you see all your accounts in one place? See your Net Worth at a glance? Project your account balances at some point in the future? Keep track of the value of any investments? Build up an analysis of your spending patterns to see where your money goes? These are some of the reasons why I wrote & use JabpLite.
</plug>

Best regards,
Malcolm

I note there are two versions listed for your program. At the risk of revealing my ignorance in this regard, which one should I download for my blackberry 7100t?

JabpLite Series 60 1.00 2004-09-18

or

JabpLite UIQ 1.00 2004-09-18


Thanks.

Either will do. I've only tried the program on a 7230, so I'll be interested to know how it works on the 7100t.

Best regards,
Malcolm

I would recommend series60, because the screen sizes are similar. but that's just me

In fact there's only one version of the program, for S60, UIQ and Blackberry. I just have to show it in two different sections of the FreEPOC site. The Blackberry version is packaged as an ALX file, but it is just the same code under the covers. In terms of screen size, the program is smart enough to adapt to any size of screen (within reason) so that's not a problem. I haven't done any specific customization for Blackberry users, and I could tidy up the UI for these devices a bit if there is sufficient interest.

Best regards,
Malcolm

Malcolm, I downloaded your program about two months ago, maybe on October 29, 2004 when you last posted. Because of a mistake on my part, I no longer have WinZip and wasn't able to unzip the file. I checked again tonight and I see that you have one that is an OTA download.

I have been very interested to see how this works. I will let you know how I like it.

I just wanted to say thanks for creating it in the first place.
