It might be a stretch to call this “going green”, it isn’t on par with using reusable bags or replacing your light bulbs with energy efficient bulbs, but these are a few tips tohelp you maximize your batter charge!
Network Connections
Turn off unused connections when not in use for example: Wi-Fi ® Bluetooth® (Manage Connections)
Use “Auto On/Off” (Options>AutoOn/Off)
Use a single mode only. Choose 2G or 3G rather than 2G and 3G. (Options>Mobile Network)
Applications
When exiting, be sure to close the app, not leave it running in the background. (close with the ESC key, the rounded arrow not red power end key. Or, choose Menu button menu_key_bb_bullets_39752_11.jpg and scroll down to close)
Log out of applications when they are not needed.
Screen/Keyboard
Reduce Backlight Timeout (Options> Screen/Keyboard)
Reduce Backlight Brightness (Options > Screen/Keyboard)
Use a device holster (this turns off LCD automatically when you put your device away)
Set Audible Roll for your trackball to mute (Options> Screen/Keyboard)
Key Tone Off (Options> Screen/Keyboard)
Camera
Turn off flash (Camera > Options)
Set picture size to Small (Camera > Options)
Set Color Effect to Normal (Camera > Options)
Set Picture Quality to Normal (Camera > Options)
GPS
Turn off GPS when not required (Options > Advanced Options > GPS)
Use the zoom out function to get the largest viewable area that you can still use usefully.
Browsing

Close browser when finished using (close with ESC key, not red End key)
This is pretty big list, do you have any additions? Or maybe just some general “green” tips for life?

Free App : Foyage – your personal radar

September 15th, 2009
Comments Off

There has been some crazy growth for RIM in Indonesia in the past year. According to the Asia Times there are now 350,000 BlackBerry users which is up 550% from last year! With a population of 240 million that is a lot of potential for RIM. Especially considering the fact that the iPhone has a paltry 15,000 users. Now it makes sense why RIM was jumping through so many hoops to get recertified to import BlackBerrys.

With that said  it would be prudent to mention a new app called Foyage that was brought to our attention. :) Foyage is an LBS (Location Based Services) application that only works in Indonesia (Jakarta, Bali) and Singapore. The app helps you find services and shops near your location including more than 12.000 restaurants, ATM, petrol kiosk and many more in Indonesia and Singapore.

Features include:

  • location aware
  • latest updates/review from users
  • browse wide range of categories
  • detail information with rating, photo, phone number and map
  • upload your review, photo or comments and share it with other foyagers
