    Review: FindIt

    Advertisement



    OK So I got to test this app out. Let me give you a brief background of it. Basically, if you loose or misplace your BB, you just send yourself and email. Your phone will start making a very annoying noise until it's found.

    (I used a sidekick for this )



    You enter "pleasefindmenow" as the Subject and in the body you can put any message you want. This message will show as a pop up on the device. Once the email is sent, the device will start to beep (very annoying and makes you WANT to find it)and vibrate. You also get a pop up that will show whatever the body of the email said.



    In order to get it to stop making noises, you have to go into the inbox and read the message. This will work if you have the password enable, although, the pop up notification will only work IF you enter the password. I did test it on all my profiles and it made the same noise and vibrations every time. This is an app that stands in the background and if you click on the icon, (on your BB) nothing will happen.

    My only complaint would be the noise it makes. Although it is a very annoying noise, I think I would want a LOUDER, MORE annoying noise in case someone else finds it. Other than that this product is very effective and does what it claims it can do. They also have a video on their website: http://conveniencesoftware.com/findit.html so you can watch FindIt in action!

    I give this a 4 out of 5. The volume is the only complaint. For the price of this app ($4.99) it is definitely worth it. Very handy and effective app!

    Well I "luckily" have a Sidekick as a "backup" to my BB.

    Okay so this will work with the password enabled besides seeing the email in the lock screen. So you will still have the noise and vibrations with it locked? If it works in that situation Im gonna purchase this.


    BTW what theme is that? Its obviously a Vista theme but I never saw that one.

    Yes it will make noise even if it is locked, but you won't see the message until you unlock it.
