Fixmo & Fixmo Tools
Hey fellow CB'ers! Just wanted to get your opinions on Fixmo Tools. I downloaded it and I've been using it for a couple weeks, and I love it so far. Wondering what others have to say on the application. Also, has anyone used any of the other Fixmo products? I've been considering using the Fixmo Extend, but I haven't downloaded it yet. Also, there is a contest for 10 free copies of Fixmo Tools if you haven't tried it yet. It is in my signature.

I've used Fixmo tether when it was in beta stage and now using Fixmo Extend to tether and it's AWESOME. Very quick and easy to use. It's free version gives you 100mb a month and if you want unlimited u can upgrade. Well worth it.

I really like the Fixmo Tools. The most useful app on my phone. I downloaded Extend and I like it. It is pretty comparable to Tether, which I have. Wish I had known about extend because I haven't used tether in months!

Unfortunately, discounted for Fixmo Tools is still $9.99, vs the $15.99 regular price.
BUT, it is definitely a super app. (I hope it gets that recognition from RIM sometime, unless they only apply that to free apps like Poynt.) Fixmo incorporates what would be a dozen or so separate apps under one roof.
My most used Fixmo "applets" are Multi Clipboard and Memory Monitor
Multi Clipboard adds Multi Copy & Multi Paste as global menu items. You can keep a user-defined amount of separate Copy items at the same time.
Memory Monitor differs from other memory-related apps in that it offers separate charts for RAM and Application Memory. And it offers a Clear Cache option, which tells you how much RAM you just freed up after each use.
Oh and I've enjoyed their Speedtest applet too.
I think a lot of people also appreciate their Undelete, Forward/Reply with Edit, and Missed Call Indicator.
Plus they have an innovative Mail Compliance Manager, which can check your emails for overuse of capitals, "sensitive" words, overuse of punctuation, or unintended recipients.
I believe all applets can be enabled/disabled. All this and their support is responsive & diligent to boot.

Guess i will have to try it again then. I bought it a few weeks back and tried it out for a couple days but really didnt see much use in it, at least for what I use my phone for. We'll see if it grows on me.

Thanks for the explanation elite1...
What has prevented me from purchasing is that I have Meter Berry, don't need the undelete, don't need the mail compliance manager.
I think it is great for someone who doesn't have all these apps installed on his BB, but I have my BB loaded with apps which do all what Fixmo Tools does....I know it does it all under one roof but....
Anyay, thanks for ur explanation still

I have meterberry as well and like you say I don't need a lot of the things that it brings. I do enjoy the remote print and wifi file transfer. The memopad on the home screen is great as well as the multicopy. I actually enjoy it alot and the more I play with it, the more I like it. I actually got in on sale for 6.99 not to long ago.

Just to be sure I do it justice, here's a full list of the suite of applets currently included with Fixmo Tools:
- Wifi File Transfer
- Wifi Media Backup
- Remote Print
- Mail Compliance Manager
- Memory Monitor
- Battery Watch
- Remind Me Later
- SMS Recovery
- Multi Clipboard
- Forward Reply with Edit
- Call Indicator
They usually add a few new ones every few months or so.
Btw there is a Fixmo sub-forum here on CB too if anyone wants to know any more info. (That's all I'm giving!)

The Fixmo people are VERY responsive to CB people, they have a strong presence here on the forum. If you go to their sub forum you will find they respond to you almost immediately. And I'm a little surprised one of them has not found this thread yet.

Ok I downloaded a free trial copy of this program, and I just need to know how to use the clipboard feature. I cannot find any instructions anywhere on how to copy and paste using this program. Is it supposed to be a no brainer or something? I really need to find something that will work with the Uzard web browser because I'm sick of typing my e mail address every time I log in to facebook. Can anyone help me? I would really appreciate it. Curve 3G

Highlight an item you want to Copy as you normally would and click your MENU key. Click your M key to toggle your way directly to Multi Copy and select it. (Scroll to it if you prefer!)
When you want to Paste an item you previously MultiCopied, place the cursor in desired location, click MENU, click M to toggle to MultiPaste and select it.
What you need is QuickLaunch's new QL Auto Fill feature. It does exactly what you want regarding repeatedly needing the same usernames & passwords.

I purchashed off Crackberry while on sale on 8/31 and now the program indicates I have a trial version. How do I get this registered? I wonder if this has something to do with me running OS 7. I sent in a support request but have not heard back from the developers. Any soluutions
