So if you have downloaded BlackBerry App World you probably have noticed that it supports usage over WiFi, gifting applications and much more. However there are some hidden features that might be useful to some users.

  • ALT + SSS  – If you open up BlackBerry App World and type those keys in, you’re instantly producing not only a log for BlackBerry App World but a screenshot as well. As show above, you can then email that log fil, screen cap and even fill in some details about what is happening off to RIM. Once closed, all screenshots and log files disappear.
  • ALT + LOGLOG – This key combo generates a new log file. In that log file will be some information about your device such as your locale, App World version, date & time and what wireless carrier and tower you are connected to as well as, your device model and PIN #.

Now again these features aren’t going to be used by everyday users.

Once the dispatch is complete, the App captures and conveniently stores the dispatch details, including the name of the roadside provider en route to the customer and estimated time of arrival.
