BackLight Override app for the PlayBook. Stream Content without the Screen Shutting Off
Granted this is not a native OS solution to the Back light timing out but I was excited to try this out with my favorite radio station and it worked like a champ. I can now sit on the back deck and listen to the radio on the PlayBook without it timing out. This is a browser solution for a lack of a better term, so you do need to know the url of the site you want to use. You can always go to the site you want using the native browswer, copy and paste the url into BackLight Override and you are set. Another nice reason being able to have multiple windows open on the PlayBook.
Details: BackLight Override allows you to watch or listen to online streaming content without having to worry about your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ backlight timing out or going into sleep (standby) mode.
Future planned features:
– Multiple Tabs
