Update: Fixmo Tools Now Available in v2.5.1 With 17 Apps, OS 7 Support, And Option To Delete Apps

October 6, 2011 | By | 1 Comment

Fixmo Tools by Fixmo Inc. is one of my favorite tool box apps ever. The app has increased in size with the 17 power tools it embodies but thanks to the Berry Review team, we know the update makes it even better. Check it out…

Since Fixmo Tools was in beta, we were bringing it to you, and when it became available in the BlackBerry Sync Store and was out of beta, we were letting you know about the great options included with this app. Many apps or tools later, Fixmo has become quite the toolbox. But for some, the size of the app and not using all the tools was a bit of a deterrent. I’m really happy to see that the update now gives you the option to keep what you want and delete what you don’t. It’s true customization of the app so you have just what you need.

The seventeen tools included are as follows:

  • WiFi Transfer-Transfer files to and from a PC or Mac directly to your BlackBerry® using only Wifi and your computer’s browser
  • Remote Print-Print emails, photos, contacts, memos, office documents and more directly from your BlackBerry® to your printer over WiFi (Windows PC Required)
  • Screenshot-Capture a simple screenshot from any application from within the application menu. The captured screenshot is stored within the device’s pictures folder
  • Undelete-is your phone’s “recycling bin.” You can retrieve deleted email, PIN messages, calendar events, tasks, and memos
  • WiFi Media Backup-Seamlessly back-up the photos, videos and voice-notes on your BlackBerry® to your Windows-based PC
  • Remind Me Later-Schedule a reminder in your calendar for a meeting, email, SMS and more
  • Memo-Create a list to-do items that are posted directly on top of the background of your BlackBerry® display
  • Mail Compliance Manager-helps you save face. It warns if you’re about to reply all to a message on which you were BCC’d, use potentially inappropriate language/punctuation/capitalization and add unintended recipients
  • Forward/Reply With Edit-lets you edit the original message when you reply or forward it and is integrated seamlessly into the existing email menu
  • Meet Me-enables you to easily arrange a meeting by automatically selecting available times on your calendar and inserting them into an email
  • Battery Watch-monitors power usage and warns you when your battery reaches low levels
  • Silencer-watches your calendar and completely silences during scheduled events
  • Memory Monitor -tracks detailed memory stats and gives you an insight into your phone’s performance across both RAM and Device Memory
  • Multi Clipboard-allows for the ability to store and retrieve multiple items in the clipboard
  • SMS Recovery-helps you recover your SMS messages by keeping a backup copy of all SMS messages sent or received
  • Call Indicator-allows you to set a different LED color for calls so you can differentiate them from other messages. Handy for when your profile is set to silent mode
  • Speed Test-measures the download and upload speeds of your 3G, EDGE and WiFi networks
My favorite ones are the Memory Monitor, Undelete, and the Mail Compliance Manager. I pretty much monitor my WiFi use, but it’s nice to see the Undelete and SMS Recovery options there. I don’t know how many times I hear someone upset because of their SMS or mail they deleted by accident that they wish they hadn’t. With Fixmo, they have you covered. All the apps have great use and I’m sure we can all find benefit out of it.
The updated features of the update are as follows:
  • Support for BlackBerry OS 7 devices
  • Conserve Wi-Fi – A completely new application that conserves battery life by turning Wi-Fi on and off based on your location (cell towers)
  • Deleting Apps – Since our last release, we actually got quite a bit of feedback that there was an overwhelming amount of apps in Fixmo Tools.  So in Fixmo Tools 2.5, the user can optionally delete Fixmo Tools sub-apps that they use less frequently
  • Performance optimizations
If you’re a current Fixmo Tools v2.0 user, be sure and update your Fixmo Tools today as the update is free for you. If you have your app through the BlackBerry Sync Store, just log in and go to my Account and update your app. If you haven’t tried Fixmo, there is a free trial available through the BlackBerry Sync Store or BlackBerry App World.
