Attention Grabber extends the functionality of the Attention Manager, it grabs your attention by emitting a beep, turning on the LED or vibrating periodically when you have pending alerts.
This is most useful on a device like my Treo 650 wich does not continuously alert me to the fact that I've missed a call or an SMS, something I was used to from my previous phone.
You can enable or disable the app (note that it is always disabled while running but it re-enables when it closes).
You can tell the app to re-enable itself after a soft reset.
You can specify the number of seconds between attention grabbing attempts.
You can enable or disable the audible beep.
You can enable or disable the LED while there are pending attention items.
You can enable or disable the vibrator (useful if you have muted the sound on your Treo).
Show the LED state even if the checkbox is disabled.
Found a way around the nasty rebuild case so that a device reset is no longer needed (helpful when you're building AttnGrab from source with OnBoardC while it is doing something).
Use 'hvch' and 'hapl' notifications instead of 'hede' while the alert is active. If you noticed performance problems while AttnGrab was alerting this should help.
Change profile with the ringer switch.

Works as advertised... a nice thing these days. It's great to have the functionality - can't tell you how many calls I didn't realize I'd missed until I took the time to turn on the phone and look. No more! Excellent work. Thanks.

Excellent. My super-phone just got a feature my dumbphone had - recurring notices that I have a Txt msg. Very, very simple to use, and choices of how you want it to notify you. Highly recommend!
