Screen Grabber – Our Newest App Now Available For Free

We have just released our newest app – SCREEN GRABBER.

Screen Grabber is the ultimate screen shot/capture application for BlackBerry devices. With Screen Grabber, send a map or directions to your best friend, or send your icon screen with a couple of clicks to share with family and friends. There´s nothing quite like Screen Grabber and free is always good. Real good.

o Screen Grabber ads a menu item in all your Blackberry menus for quick and easy access to take screen shots.

o With a single click take a screen shot of your Blackberry screen. Tap. Done.

o Email that screen shot to anyone, anywhere, any time.

o Screen Grabber stores all your screen captures in a new file called Screen Grabs. Want to see your contacts list from a month ago? Easy. If you grabbed a screen shot of that important client´s phone number, it´s in the file labeled Screen Grabs, right where we put it for you.

o Screen Grabber is the only “screen-shot” app that we are aware of that can take a screen shot from within your Browser on OS 6 .0 devices.

o Screen Grabber saves the screen shots in a small size (usually less then 50kb), making it easier to email and save your screen shots.

o Want to send a map or directions to your technically-impaired friends? It doesn´t get any easier than click and send with Screen Grabber.

o Organize your Blackberry Screen Grabs in a single place – one folder holds it all in an “at-a-glance” format.

o So simple to set up, Screen Grabber does it all for you. Download and you´re good to go.

App icons, maps, tools, contacts, addresses – JaredCo´s Screen Grabber makes it a snap to grab a screen shot, send it or store it for use down the line.

And best of all, Screen Grabber is totally free so it costs you zip. But, like all JaredCo apps, it delivers real functionality that enhances your Blackberry experience.

You´ve got nothing to lose and lots of utility to gain. Like all JaredCo apps, we design them, we build them and we support them. Even the FREE ones.

Message Prevue – Our Newest App

We are pleased to let you know that we have just released our newest app: MESSAGE PREVUE.

You´re receiving messages throughout the day but you can´t always stop what you´re doing. Message Prevue simplifies connecting with a discrete pop-up that tells you who´s emailing or texting you and why.

o When you receive an email or SMS, a small pop-up appears on your screen showing name of sender and subject line.

o See who´s emailing or texting at a glance so you decide who gets a response now and who´ll just have to wait.

o The information won´t clutter your screen because the pop up slowly fades after you´ve seen who´s reaching out. Read and *poof*. Gone.

o You never have to access your message folder to see who´s contacted you. Senders and subjects of incoming texts are right in front of you. Sweet.

o When you see the Message Prevue pop-up, click your trackball/pad or press the pop-up with your finger (for touch screen devices) to open your message folder for quick viewing of your incoming message(s).

o The Message Prevue pop-up box is fully customizable by size, background colour, and how long the pop-up box stays on your screen.

CLICK HERE to get Message Prevue at the introductory price of $1.99 at BlackBerry App World.

Please leave a comment and let us know what you think of Message Prevue.
