BBKeeper contacted me about some free utilities he is working on that are currently in public beta. The most impressive one is CallAssist which adds a few features to your BlackBerry that many people could use. Here is a list of the features:
- Vibrate when connected
- Ask you to add numbers not in your address book after you get off the phone with the option to add to an existing contact
- Popup new SMS (Doesn’t work in OS 6 yet)
- Blinking LED on incoming call with color options
- Blinking LED on new SMS with color options
- Vibrate during call every set amount of seconds to let you know how many minutes have passed
That is a pretty impressive feature set for a free/donationware app. You can download Call Assist at this link OTA or ask BBKeeper about it in our forums. Just remember to change the language when you fire up the app to English. Its the first option.
BBKeeper also has a few other utilities worth noting if you are hunting around for such a thing. Check them out at these forum threads:
Let us know what you think of the apps.
