TimelySnippet – Text Snippet Library for Your BlackBerry


In our daily BlackBerry usage, there are several occasions when we need to use a text repeatedly. For instance, in our emails, we usually use a word “Best Regards”, so would it not be nice if we can create a snippet for the word “Best Regards”.

Whenever we need to use it, we just click the BlackBerry option button and select “Insert TimelySnippet” menu option. This pops-up a window with our saved snippets. We then click on the “Best Regards” snippet and use it at the cursor point.

Well, this is what TimelySnippet for BlackBerry does!
