I looks like having your email & SMS show up as a popup is a hot app for BlackBerry users. First we had PeeKaWho & Aerize Email Alerts arrive on the scene showing us how it is done. Tashanna just let me know that Message Peek has been released by Wise Mobile Solutions to provide another alternative. Personally I find the popups annoying but it looks like there is a market for it. Message Peek does not seem to add any new features but I guess it is good to have options. They have a 7 day trial if you want to check it out after which it is $7.99 in the store.
