Charger Alert v3.0 for BlackBerry 10 has been released at BlackBerry World.
This major update allows Charger Alert to now run in the background as a service when the app is closed, or in BlackBerry 10 terms: makes it headless!
Here’s a full list of what’s changed in v3.0:
- Charger Alert now has full background service support, so that it can continue to run in the background when the app is closed or the device is restarted. The option to run in the background can be switched on or off in the Settings menu for the Pro version.
- To accommodate the included background service of the app, some functionality has been changed slightly, as indicated below.
- Alerts can now be enabled at any time, and will stay enabled (even when you close the app) until you later disable them.
- Alerts must be enabled before they can become active. Active alerts are indicated by the highlighted alert icon next to each toggle button.
- To prevent an active alert from triggering, it must first be disabled with the toggle button.
- Triggered alerts can be deactivated, as before, from the dialog box.
Note: You need to have the Pro upgrade, and running on BlackBerry OS version 10.2.1 or greater to use the background service (headless) feature.
Another big update, Charger Alert v2.5 for BlackBerry 10 has been released at BlackBerry World.
You asked for the option to have the alerts kept on, and now you’ve got it with version 2.5.
In the settings menu, simply check ‘Activate Automatically‘ for those alerts you want turned on as soon as they’re enabled.
In addition, you can opt to have the app minimize on startup. Combined with the above settings, you can have Charger Alert up & running in the background with just one tap!
Finally, the ‘Plugged In Alert‘ provides a nice audio notification whenever you plug your device in to charge.
Here’s a full list of what’s new in v2.5:
- Big improvements in the settings and customization of the app.
- Plugged In alert provides notification when you connect the device to a charger.
- Alerts can now be activated automatically from the settings menu.
- Option to have the app minimized when started.
