Who watches the Watcher? BlackBerry 10 customization power-tool gets an update
Here are some other highlights. Watcher can make the smartphone's notification LED blink in different colors for incoming calls, connecting to a cellular network, receiving texts and e-mails. It also has an auto-switching feature that automatically changes the profile between Silent and Normal at set periods of time. For example, it sets the BlackBerry to Silent in the night and Normal through the day. If you carry your phone in a holster, Watcher can change the profile as the device is taken in or out.
While we're on the topic of silence, the app has options to block all incoming phone calls in a set period of time. We suspect this is a delightful feature when you are in the middle of something, and turning off the smartphone is undesirable.
Watcher's Home Screen options include automatic changing of your wallpaper in predefined time periods, with pictures chosen from a selected folder. Watcher can do the same for your lock-screen, although it will cause "big trouble" when using Picture Password, according to the developer.
Watcher costs $2.99 and is available on BlackBerry Q10, Q5, Z10, Z30. It requires BB OS 10.2.1. Future updates will bring more features and customizations, such as outgoing call and e-mail blocking, to the application.
