    BBsmart Viewer

    Does anyone use the BBsmart viewer on their Storm? Is it functional on the Storm? I really liked it on my Pearl but I'm not sure if I need or want it on my Storm. Any thoughts?

    I don't have a Storm, instead have an 8330, but I haven't used BBSmart since upgrading to 4.5. The way I see it, HTML email support supplants BBSmart's usefulness.

    We still get the benefit from BBSmart View in non-html emails!
    I believe Neil is still working on enhancements to 4.5 and above

    I don't think they have made a storm compatible version yet. I hope they do by the time I buy my storm because I hate the native html email with the 4.5 OS. I hate having to retrieve images, and would greatly miss all the options for customizing colors for each email address. I don't know if it's any better in the Storm's 4.7, but 4.5

    I have the native html support turned off on my 8330, 4.5.0.89 and use the BBSmart viewer instead, much nicer for me.

    I found out from the bbsmart people that they will let you transfer your bbsmart viewer to a new device so you don't have to purchase it again. I installed it on my Storm and it works well. You still have to click 'get images' every time. I wish it would download the images automatically.

    I'm not sure if this is the same on the storm, but on the curve I can go to Messages/Menu/Options/Email Settings/ and change Enable HTML email to no. This allows bbsmart to get images automatically if your bbsmart options has Display Images in Email checked
