I am not sure how we missed this application, but we are human. Thanks to Frank for bringing it to our attention. Turns out that a small developer, Orion North America, released an application that essentially lets you set a popup email notifier that will let you know when you get an email while you are in any application. I am not sure exactly how well this works, but it is innovative. It is also reasonably priced at $6.95 in the store with lifetime upgrades. There is also a 2-day trial available that should let you get a feel of the application. I get so many emails on my BlackBerry making this application impractical, but let me know what you think.
From the description:
Don’t you wish BlackBerry had an email notifier popup like the one you are used to in MS Outlook or Gtalk Notifier (Growl on the Mac). Stop wishing and get PeeKaWho. With it, you can get critical information from your emails fast. With PeeKaWho, you can see who is emailing (with brief email body) while drafting another email, playing your favorite game or other tasks on your BlackBerry.
