Long time BlackBerry developer VirtualViews has come up with another unique app for BlackBerrys. This alerts you to new emails by reading them out loud to you when your phone is connected to your PC over USB. Essentially when your BlackBerry is connected to your PC the app can display a popup preview of messages for email, SMS, and calls and lets you hear who is calling or emailing/texting you using the built in voice synthesizer. Pretty cool if you ask me… The app is called Elertify and is available now for $4.99 on sale until Nov 15th after which it goes up to $5.99.
Giveaway Details: VirtualViews has kindly offered 30 free copies of Elertify to readers who comment on this article.

Comments must be left before Wednesday Nov 4th at 11:59PM EST to win and winners should hopefully be notified shortly thereafter. Only one comment per user will be accepted!
Are you tired of picking up your BlackBerry® every 15 seconds to check messages only to discover it’s ad from Ed’s Furniture Company or another silly joke from Aunt Kathy?
Now you can preview messages while you work on your PC with Elertify!
Elertify can display a popup message on your PC when you receive incoming Email, SMS and Phone calls on your BlackBerry. You can even hear who’s calling, texting, or emailing you by using the built voice synthesizer!
Elertify lets you choose which types of messages you want to receive: Email, SMS or phone calls.
You can set the popup display time and whether you want the voice synthesizer or a ringtone to play when you receive a message. You might even turn off the popups altogether and just listen to the voice synthesizer.
Now you won’t have to look at your BlackBerry unless you really want to.
Elertify works via the USB cable and is for the PC only.
You must install both the BlackBerry and Windows software to use Elertify.
If you use your PC a lot, you need Elertify!
