Arrow Public Beta open for SMS Viewer

Please Login to Remove!

Dear All,
We've been working on a cool new app for SMS! (see the attached image for illustration) Following the private beta we had on the forums, the app is now open for Public Beta.

In case you are interested in trying out a pre-release app then please proceed to www.getempower.com to install the product. Installing from the web will also ensure that I can notify you when the app goes live.

In case you want no notification, just point your BlackBerry Browser to www.getempower.com/beta/sms/ to install the app directly.

Looking forward to your feedback, comments, suggestion etc..

Pvt Beta users can install this version (v0.98) over their existing version.

Best!
Ani

I tried it and did not like it.....

Just my opinion. Ran very, very slow on my curve.

I need to give it time. I like how it shows emoticons and I like how it is pretty customizable. I wish you could change the background image.

I like this too. I was able to customize it and remove the background, and just have black text on a white background. One thing I do wish is that you could mark whether a text was incoming or outgoing.

Yeah, I messed around with that too, changing from Pattern to Color. But I wish there were more images to choose from when selecting Pattern. I agree with the incoming/outgoing messages too.

Could you add a configuration option for the header text? The text is too large, and the phone type [(Mobile)] and the phone number [+1 (623) 51x-xxxx] are overlaid...

How much will this app cost when it is released? Hopefully free haha.

Does this work on a 8800 with the latest OS? I have a 8800 and I installed it, it shows up on my "desktop" but whenever I click on it, nothing happens.

Arrow Background Color, Incoming Outgoing SMS markers

True, we have two options for background.
Pattern - in here you can select images for the background.
Color - in here you can set your background to some color.

Also, the incoming / outgoing sms identification is already there, it will work for all ur smses send/received after the app has been installed. For sms sent/received before the app was there, it has no way to tell. Try sending/receiving a few sms and you will see different markers on them.

Best,
Ani.

This app doesn't work with any of the phone numbers I have in my address book, any others will show with the viewer but nothing that's in my book as a name...anyone else getting this?

Thanks, I gave it a try. I found a long delay between the time I pressed the Menu button and the time the menu actually appeared. I didn't time it, but anything less than instant seems slow since most menus pop up instantly. I would guess it took nearly two seconds for the menu to appear on my 8130 (4.5.0.138).

Try a battery pull, then look in your download folder.

You really won't see an app per se, just open an SMS message.

I am running the same OS on an 8330 and there does seem to be a delay. On the QWERTY keypad I can just press R to reply and F to forward. I don't need to use the menu key really. I don't know if this will work with the SureType devices.

I was wondering about this earlier because I also thought I had to open some kind of application for this to work. But yes, it shows up on the Storm as soon as you open a SMS.
