There’s a new app out that I’ve had the opportunity to try and put to the test, and I have to admit, It works quite well. And no one felt ignored. The app is called ASAP and it’s available in the BlackBerry Sync Store for $4.99. I also have a giveaway with this too.
Here’s the ASAP description from out of the BlackBerry Sync Store:
You’re enjoying a night out. You’re in the middle of an important business presentation, or you’re with your family when your Blackberry rings Now what?
Used to be you had two choices: take the call or ignore it. With Blackberry ASAP from JaredCo, you now have more options. No more leaving an important client hanging on the line. No more hurt feelings of “being ignored.”
With ASAP, respond to an incoming call you choose to ignore, or miss, using a return SMS, with a single click or automatically.
Customize your texts and send them. No thumbing during that big meeting.
Create special text messages: “I’m at the concert .” “I’m in a meeting.” “I’ll get back to you ASAP!” No more “I am busy.”
With ASAP the pressure is off. With a simple click let callers know they got through. Let them know why you’re tied up. Let them know you’ll get back to them ASAP.
No need to stop what you’re doing. You’ll get back ASAP.
Like all JaredCo applications, ASAP is a breeze to configure, a snap to personalize and a pleasure to deploy.
And ASAP comes with JaredCo’s 100% money-back guarantee. If you don’t think it’s the best responder app out there, ASAP doesn’t cost you a penny
Here’s the features of the phone:

- Automatic operation allows you select 1 customized auto response that will be sent by SMS to any missed call from any caller in your contacts that calls from their mobile number.
- All Upgrades will be free.
- 100% money back Guarantee if not fully satisfied.
The app is small and downloads and installs quickly. I tested it on my BlackBerry Tour 9630 running 5.0. When you click on the icon screen you see the ASAP Setup Screen. This has the first Option text 1 already set up which says: “I am busy now, I will call you back later”. There are three other option texts available for you to personalize. So you can make them professional and personal. You also have the Auto Send option, and if you choose it, you type in the cell phone number for the auto send to send to. It also has How many seconds should Popup stay open? And if you click on the options button, you can find the Help with instructions and the About for the version and information about the app.
My phone rang, and I’d hit ignore, and the popup would come up allowing me to choose which text to reply with. It texts them back quickly. I had friends impressed that they were answered so quickly, no one felt ignored. This application is fantastic for keeping everyone in the loop. No one gets upset thinking you’re ignoring them while you’re busy, you don’t have to go to your messages and make a text to reply, just let ASAP do it that quickly for you.
Now here’s the giveway. I have fifty copies thanks to Michael from the Jared Company. He’s giving us fifty copies and here’s what I want.
