    Ok so apparently this empower central is a central launch point for all appz released by this guy or "Empower" ....its a nice interface to launch his appz....it looks just like the Storm Icon layout.

    So I'm sure what happened to me is probably the CRAP 5.0.0.314 Bold leak but I launched Empower central and launched task manager and was playing with it and BOOM random reboot LOL I'm seriously going back to .238 tonight I thought I fixed .314 but NOPE. Anyhow I hope everyone enjoys this but it looks like the full feature set for this won't be available until it is out of Beta and you can purchase it.

    This is a waste of time you can't even view processes running unless you upgrade to the paid version. I thought it was a trial but was mistaken.

    I was able to delete the 'install' icon. Just highlight it and hit the menu button (liek you would if you were going to hide it) and you can delete it from there.

    Installed central and the app. Not sure what it really shows. Wish you could shut down the apps from here like the task manager in Windows.

Then the fun part. I went to uninstall the downloader and found it didn't show up in the application list, not in Mobylol's Surewipe, nor in Aerize cardloader's list of installed apps. I thought maybe it was like one of the service book installers pushed down by those b@stard telcos, but nothing in service books either. HiddenProgs and applist also failed to show me the installer. I'm a little disturbed by this. Offering a dl of a downloader isn't normal practice for BB software vendors in any case, but is especially suspicious when it isn't uninstallable. Additionally, the description they have provided says free version, not trial, which is belied by their EULA. I would gladly pay for the thing, but not if the provider is acting all shady like this.

    If you highlight the app/installer and press the BB button and select Delete, the Installer icon changes to a faded, generic window icon and disappears from the Downloads folder after a battery pull.

    Thanks for the link bbphreak but this doesn't sound like it's worth it at all. I know my berry works great and I'm a little sceptical of applications that run in the background anyway.

    Yea I think once its fully functional it will be worth it (if you buy it) since you can kill processes...which is the main reason I would want something like this....and also to be able to view all running modules and system modules.

    As with the others, a complete disappointment. Getting the same 404 error. If those who are lucky enough to get it to install and getting only a trial version and unable to uninstall, I am surprised in the ethics of the developers. Advertise for free, get you in and then let you down with a trial version. Not good business. Fantastic idea but wrong approach.
