Sound Scheme for BB10 - add customizable sound notifications to almost all OS events

Sound Scheme - just like sound schemes in a desktop OS like Windows - lets you add customized sound notifications to almost 40 system events. Each event can be freely enabled or disabled and you can select your own sounds for each of them.

From now on, you don't have to look at your phone to know when e.g. the battery finishes charging, when data services get enabled, when your device auto-locks or unlocks in your pocket, when you go out of your mobile network's coverage and the phone loses signal, when you enter or exit roaming, when the battery is low or empty, when there's too little free space in internal memory, and much more. You will simply hear your configured sound notification for every enabled event.  It is a tiny headless service working invisibly in the background so once you configure it you can just forget about it and enjoy the notifications as if they were fully integrated with the OS.






Events supported in this version include:

- Operating System Loaded / App started
- Mobile Radio Enabled
- Mobile Radio Disabled

You can allow or deny sounds in Bedside Mode and select which profiles the app will be active in.

Future updates will add volume control and even more events.

Please see the "About" screen in the app for detailed information.

Features:

- Tiny autostarting headless service working invisibly in the background, fully integrated with the OS
- Configure once and forget about it
- Virtually no battery or CPU usage
- Almost 40 events supported in this version
- Enable or disable sounds in Bedside Mode
- Select profiles which the app will be active in
- Permissions used: Work In Background (required for the headless service to work), Access Shared (needed to allow selecting custom sounds).

Notes:

* The app comes with some basic sounds preconfigured. You can freely change them to any other audio files.

* If you use your own sounds, we recommend choosing short and subtle ones. Too long or too aggressive sounds can quickly become annoying.

* We recommend only choosing the events you really need to be notified about. Enabling sounds for too many events can make your phone notify you about unimportant things way too often, which you'll quickly find distrupting.

* Sometimes multiple events may take place simultaneously, e.g. when you disable the WiFi radio an active WiFi connection gets terminated at the same time (both of which can have their own sounds), or when battery charging stops at full charge. In such case usually only one of the two notifications will be heard.

Live LockScreen: BIORHYTHM. Live Biorhythm graphs on the Lock Screen of your BB10 device

The Lock Screen of your BB10 phone doesn't have to be static and boring anymore! The 'Live LockScreen' series adds LIVE content to your Lock Screen, providing you with regularly and automatically updated data whenever you look at the Lock Screen of your device.


Live LockScreen: Biorhythm displays your current biorhythm cycles (updated daily at midnight) in form of a graph located at the bottom of the Lock Screen. Now you can always see your up-to-date biorhythm readings at a glance, without having to open any app or doing anything else!







Use this app (instead of your phone's Settings) to choose any wallpaper image you want like you do normally. For best results and good readability select an image that does not obscure the graph, or - alternatively - you can enable black background behind the graph to make it legible. You can also decide whether to show graph labels (reminding you which colors represent the physical, emotional and intellectual cycles) and your current age in days. The graph shows you the current day in its center (marked with red triangle, or a yellow warning sign on critical days when one of the cycles crosses its zero point) as well as past 30 days on the left and the next 30 days on the right side. 

Once configured, you can just forget about this app and let it update the graph for you daily, forever. As the content gets updated only once per day at midnight, this application has absolutely no impact on your phone's performance or battery life.





Features:
  • Always up-to-date biorhythm reading at a glance
  • Warning symbol shown on critical days
  • Your current age in days (optional)
  • Automatically updated daily at midnight
  • Choose any wallpaper image you want
  • Optionally enable black background behind the graph
  • Absolutely no impact on battery life or performance
  • Tiny headless service working invisibly in the background
  • Permissions used (and required for the app to work): Work in Background, Access to Shared Files
  • No matter if you believe in the biorhythm theory or not, it's just fun to have it and bring some LIFE to your Lock Screen!

Unmissable for BlackBerry BB10

Never miss an important call or SMS. Unmissable for BB10 is a headless service that improves and enhances the way your phone notifies you about missed calls and unread text messages.

Normally, the phone flashes the LED for about 15 minutes and then stops. If you leave your phone for more than 15 minutes and then come back, there will be no visual or audible notification of any kind, so you won't know about missed communication until you turn on the display and check it there. 

Unmissable changes it so that visual and/or audible notifications persist indefinitely, i.e. until you view the missed call information or unread message. 

Configuration options include:
  • Enable indefinite notifications for missed calls, unread SMS, or both.
  • Select notification types: LED, Sound, Vibration - any or all of them, separately for calls and SMS.
  • Enable notifications for: All, All but Hidden numbers, Contacts only, Selected Contacts only.
  • Choose LED colors for calls and texts.
  • Select Sound file and notification volume.
  • Select notification interval (every 1, 3, 5, 10, or 30 minutes), separately for calls and texts.
  • Cancel the reminder at any time by pressing Volume Up button.
  • Enable or disable notifications in Bedside Mode.
Other features:
  • Native, headless. Configure once and just let it work invisibly in the background.
  • Virtually ZERO battery or CPU use - does not affect your phone's performance or battery life.




Unmissable is available in the BlackBerry World
