A few days ago someone suggested that I should check out a new application by ShaoSoft called SixTools. I will admit that I gave the "one raised eyebrow" reaction when my friend said it was an app that had several interesting tools that were only for BlackBerry devices running OS 6.0, but as soon as I made my journey to the BlackBerry Sites Store and read the description I was straight up giddy! I know the number 1 irritation for many long time BlackBerry users with the BlackBerry Torch is that RIM decided to remove one of our convenience keys(I know WTF, right?). Taking a convenience key away from a BlackBerry user is like taking a pacifier or "blankie" away from an infant at nap time, seriously un-cool! Thankfully the Application Gods have smiled on us and sent ShaoSoft as there emissary to give us not 1, not 2, but……..3(Happy Dance!!) extra convenience keys by allowing you to use both volume keys as well as the mute key as convenience keys and he even intelligently made it inactive when you are using your media player. Three Cheers for ShaoSoft!!
The application has some other cool features but to be honest they are of minimal importance to me compared to having my extra convenience keys, you can read the official store description below for all the features. Also if you are a OS 5.0 or below user this genius developer has created an app for just the convenience keys on older devices HERE (on sale for $1.99 until Nov. 13th, 2010)
ShaoSoft was kind enough to give us a code for 10 free copies of SixTools, the code is sitestools and is first come first serve so get it fast. If you miss out I certainly think $2.99 is more than worth quadrupling your number of convenience keys!
|SixTools offers a variety of feature to enhance your OS6 experience. From adding extra convenience keys to your media keys to a battery indicator.
