well, i haven't given it a go yet.. but i'm thinking maybe that it won't allow you to decompress because you have too little space left?

"sDoubler will not allow you to uncompress if after uncompressing there is less space than 150 kB. It is the safe amount that 7650 will not crash."

so prob. just clear up more space, and it shld let you decompress?

any other feedback/comments about this app?

Maybe the forum gods could make a point per point comparison against competitors of Space doubler, namely sCompress.

Better yet, maybe they could have this comparison data fact sheet for all other products competing with each other. This way, we, the customers will benefit most from it. Not to mention, money wise.

Say, what happens if there's this new tool that you have bought and theres another tool having the same functionality...etc. You can or you can't buy everything.

from what i'm reading, i believe that this sdoubler is better than sCompress simply because for all of us without the latest firmware upgraded, it's going to crash our phone - when we uncompress!

can anyone correct me if i'm wrong?

MaleBuffy 29-11-2002 06:21 AM

They fixed the problem with 3.12 I think! The differences are that spacedoubler is basicaly automated....

Hi,
To anas7650:
We are sorry to hear your opinion. We have tested and we never had such problem. Could you send us your feedback explaining your problem?

simeonbubblegum 29-11-2002 08:10 AM

A couple of things that I'm concerned about:

1. Uninstalling sDoubler leaves apps compressed and thus they are unusable!

2. What happens when trial period is over? Does it again leave apps compressed?

3. What happens when I uninstall a compressed app? Are the compressed files left on disk?

4. These compressers of course become obsolete when 3650 hits the markets.

TriplePOP = 121k scompress, 128k spacedoubler
HantroCP = 98k scompress, 106k spacedoubler

spacedoubler prob needs this as a header on the packed app to tell it how to decompress

However, the size of the spacedoubler app is 37k, compared to 84k of scompress.

V happy here

Mr G



spacedoubler - 37 kb
+ it installs :
PsiNT eLlib - 45 kb (hm whats this for??? :oops: )
PsiNT Helper - 6kb (i guess i dont need any helper on my phone :-? )

well .... your thoughts ?
:D

Well 1,2 are not their problem......if you zip a file with WinZip on Windows......does it uncompress it when you uninstall WinZip?...No...does it uncompress files when the trial is over?......No.

About 4. I dont think so....I would like to save space even though I can have a 128mb MMC card for example....we compress files on the PC and have like 80Gb hard disk....why not on a 128MMC card?

It's a killer app, I only wish it will compress midlets too.

And I agree with above point, this will be useful even with 3650.

The eLib installation is so that the developers can put standard routines into a single place rather than have the same code individually installed for different applications. Makes sense to me.

Yup, v good idea, modular code and all that.

Any psiloc prog installs these 2 files if you don't already have one of their products installed. I first noticed them when I installed Task Manager.

As for sDoubler becoming obsolete when the 3650 comes out, its a bold assumption to make that everyone who owns a 7650 will bin it and get a 3650.......
