    Wink BeBuzz 6 Beta is here!

    We are finally starting beta testing for the next major release of BeBuzz!

    BeBuzz 6 will bring the following new features and enhancements:

    • E-mail, text and BBM filters. Create notifications for specific messages filtered by message sender, subject, body etc.
    • Automatically perform actions on filtered e-mail messages (Delete, mark as read, change priority)
    • Use toasts or fully interactive popups for e-mails and text messages. Reply, forward mark as read e-mails and texts straight from the popup. Popups are fully customizable (Display, font, buttons etc)
    • E-mail notifications. Missing notifications while your phone is in the other room? Get an e-mail on your desktop PC when your phone's battery is empty, phone is fully charged, when you get a new BBM or any other notification supported by BeBuzz.
    • Limit sending of e-mail notifications to when your phone is face up/down or charging
    • Now you can select to have the initial audible alert played by BeBuzz in addition to the audible reminders
    • Many bug fixes


    This beta is fully functional and available to everyone. The beta will expire on November 30th. BeBuzz 6 will be free to all users of BeBuzz 5.
    We will be giving out free licenses to CrackBerry users who have been active in helping to test! Make sure you post your feedback and bug reports here!

    When entering the e-mail address to send notifications to, it doesn't follow the standard of using SPACE between name, domain and TLD to automatically fill in @ and dot.

    When using the "Try It" button while setting up a toast/popup, it always shows a toast regardless of whether toast or full popup is selected.

    Hello H,
    I have some quick questions before I download this. Will this basically replace Berry PopUp?
    Also, I currently have Berry PopUp installed. Will this cause any conflicts that you know of? Should I uninstall Berry PopUp prior to downloading this?

    Or, is this an either/or situation where I can keep both applications, and just elect pop ups from from one app and disable pop ups in the other app?

    I really don't want to go through a lot of trial and error just to get started. I just want to get right into testing the app.

    Lastly, should I even download this now, or just wait for the next iteration?
    I know you can make updates very quickly, so is it better that I wait for the next version?

    Hoping you see this soon. I would like to try it.

    Thanks in Advance!

    BeBuzz 6 replicates most functionality that you have in BerryPopup (support for CrackBerry.com is missing), so it replaces BerryPopup and I would recommend to uninstall it. It also replicates most of the SmartAlerts and some of the BeMail features, so I recommend to uninstall these, too. Everything is now integrated in BeBuzz, so you have much better control over all different types of notifications.

    The next build will either come today or tomorrow.

    OK great! And, thanks for the heads up on SmartAlerts and BerryMail as well.
    I didn't think about those. I will get rid of those while I'm at it.

    I guess I will download it now as I am anxious to try it. No harm in an update later.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    Default BeBuzz 6 Beta is here!

    If I may be so bold, here is my feedback:

    1) SmartAlerts is useful because it creates entries in the sound profiles, so I can edit them on a profile by profile basis. In BeBuzz 6 Beta, it's fixed. The audible reminder / vibrate is duplicating functionality already in BBOS 7.1, namely "Sounds for Contacts" where you can edit a phone / email+SMS ringer/vibration/LED on a per contact basis. For the feature in BeBuzz to be truly useful, it needs to add a new function (like SmartAlerts) instead of just duplicating built-in features.

    2) Under "Apps", BeBuzz 6 Beta is not picking up on the fact that I have Dell Voice installed. I'm sure it is supported (I've configured earlier versions of BeBuzz to trigger on it), but for some reason it's not showing up.

    3) If I create an audible alert + vibration for an app (such as eBay or Podcasts), how does it handle/override the built-in alert+vibration that might be already configured in sound profiles? Why is this functionality here, since you can already set these in sound profiles?

    I have been using BerryBuzz/BeBuzz for as long as I can rembember. I really like the integration of the BerryMail functiopnality into the app. I have discovered a couple of bugs:

    1. I cannot set the Service in the settings for an E-Mail Rule -- if I click the button, "All" is the only option. This is critical for me to replace rules set in BerryMail.
    2. I cannot move Contacts, E-Mail Rules, etc up or down. When I select the Move Up, I get a delete confirmation dialogue -- when I select Move Down, nothing happens.
    3. For e-mail notifications, the Send From service cannot be changed from Defaut (i.e., it reverts to Default when I try to save settings).

    No full pop up option for BerryWeather, and BerryWeather still has the option to use Berry PopUp. LoL.

    There seems to be a major leak now that I've installed the beta. Dropped 40MB since yesterday afternoon - I can usually make it for a number of days before dropping that much with BeBuzz 5. Not complaining, I expect that from a beta, just something that I will keep an eye on.

    While I would certainly like a core version of BeBuzz 6 as well, why don't we get the full version working first, THEN worry about cutting features out for a core version?

    Just downloaded the beta. Have a few issues. Popups that I normally had been getting are not showing anymore. I'm not even getting a toast for them. Also my screen seems to go black when those popups should be there.I can confirm that the option for a toast or full popup is only previewing the toast

    I think I'm missing something but where do I set up the rules for my email filters? I've checked everything in options but don't see how BerryMail is integrated here.

    It took me until this morning to realize where to do it. I've been frantically searching every possible option...

    The clue is in Pfluger's screenshot above. Go to the Contacts tab and add a contact. The popup has two buttons, but below that are three links for E-Mail Rule / Text Rule / BBM Rule. Pick one

    Make sure you have set "Turn On Backlight On Popup" to "Yes" in popup settings.

    There is no BeBuzz 6 Core version at this time. It is easier to first test the whole feature package and then strip stuff out.

    The per-rule sound profile items in SmartAlerts have never worked reliably, that is why we left them out in BeBuzz. Should there be more interest in having that feature we will add them back.
    "Sounds for Contacts" doesn't support audible reminders, only a single alert. We added support for playing the initial alert in BeBuzz 6 so people can turn off all notifications in the profiles panel and instead do configure it in BeBuzz. In older versions you had to configure the initial alert in profiles and the reminder in BeBuzz.
    2) Under "Apps", BeBuzz 6 Beta is not picking up on the fact that I have Dell Voice installed. I'm sure it is supported (I've configured earlier versions of BeBuzz to trigger on it), but for some reason it's not showing up.
    Do you have the OS 7.1 build installed? Please check the 'About' screen.
    3) If I create an audible alert + vibration for an app (such as eBay or Podcasts), how does it handle/override the built-in alert+vibration that might be already configured in sound profiles? Why is this functionality here, since you can already set these in sound profiles?
    See above. Recommended use is to use either one, but not the other. You can configure alert+vibrate in profiles and leave it off in BeBuzz, or you can configure there but make sure to have it turned off in profiles. When both are on results are unexpected. You will usually hear only one of the two sounds or one interrupting the other one.

    This is expected when downloading from outside AppWorld. Simply ignore and do not connect to BBM. This will only affect "Send App to Friends" functionality.
