FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q: What is the definition of Times and Usage in the application ?
A: The application wants to answer the simple question of how often and how long you use your BlackBerry. As long as you click on a button or are on a phone call, the application counts that as activity. When the device is idle for the configured time (60 seconds by default, you can change this setting) the count of Times you have used the device is incremented, and the application stops adding to your usage duration from the time you stopped using the device. The applications credits the usage to your Work Hours and Nights and Weekends.

 

Q: Does the application send my usage to you (or my boss/spouse) ?

A: No, the application will never automatically or silently share your usage data with anyone.
The only way to share is to manually use the Share Your Usage feature. This gives you the option of sending your usage one-time only via email to an address that you provide at that time. You can edit the contents of that email before sending the email out.

 

Q: My Averages seems very high ? Is this correct ?

A: In the initial day or two, the application extrapolates your Average for the day, week, month based on your initial usage. Because of the limited data points in the initial stage, most of which is active usage, this estimate is going to over shoot your actual usage - but this will get closer to your actual average in a couple of days. The Daily, Weekly and Monthly numbers are exact numbers, only the Average is driven by a formula.

 

Q: How will I know when a new version is available ?

A: The application automatically checks when a new version is available for your type of device and your operating system version. It will inform you when a new version is available and you have the option of downloading the new version if you chose. You can also use the Check New Version menu to see if there is a new version available for you.

 

Q: When will the application come out of Beta state and a final version available ?

A: The initial release is a Beta or test release and we are eagerly collecting feedback and feature requests. Of particular interest to us is application behavior across different types of BlackBerry device and any feature requests or bug reports you have. We expect to incorporate your reports and suggestions in the final release of Version 1.0

 

Q: I am a BlackBerry Storm user. How do I get rid of the virtual keyboard?

A: You can take the following additional steps

 

Storm:Go to Options->Advanced Options->Applications
