Mobiola Screen Capture for BlackBerry by WareLex, LLC.

by Michael E. Callahan aka Dr. File Finder


Note: Since by definition "smartphones" are phones that are also PDA's, the software reviewed here should work with personal digital assistants that are not "smartphones". Check the operating system because we'll be reviewing software for Pocket PC, Windows Mobile, Palm, and BlackBerry devices. -- Editor

Over the years I've always liked to use screen captures that describe something I'm doing in the program. To me that helps tie the review and the screen capture together. It also lets you "see" what I'm talking about. That's easy-to-do with desktop software, but not so easy when talking about portable devices. Until now. Mobiola Screen Capture is a cool piece of software that gives you the ability to get screen shots off your BlackBerry or Symbian device. You install the software on your PC and then, when you connect your mobile device, the device screen shows up in Mobiola Screen Capture. From there you can save a screen shot to your computer. Or, if you want, you can also record a movie of all the activity that's happening on your mobile device. That's a great way to demonstrate something to someone else. Mobiola Screen Capture is very easy- to-use and gives you some configurable options. The program will automatically name each screen shot or video, but you can tell it a prefix that you'd like attached to each screen shot. You can also indicate where you'd like your screen shots and videos to go on your hard drive. You can also save captures to the Windows clipboard if you wish. In addition, you can zoom out, zoom in, and go full screen. The program is intuitive and very easy-to-use, perfect for users with all levels of experience. I like Mobiola Screen Capture so much that it's not only a Pick, but I'm also making it a Dr. File Finder Favorite and in over 25 years of reviewing software there aren't very many of those. So, if you'd like a way to capture images or movies off your BlackBerry device, this is the program you need. I recommend it.


If you have software you use on your "smartphone" or PDA, come and talk about it with us in the Forums. We look forward to seeing you there.
