I wholeheartedly encourage Berrying while drinking. I do it all the time, but then again, it is kind of hard to own a bar and not Berry at the same time.


...which one is recommended as the “best” or blend of most full-featured and nicest looking?


Where are the free bartender apps......I'm getting tired of paying for everything if websutes can make money without you having to shell out greenbacks evrytime then I know a mobile app can do the same.

The Consigliere

I have friends with iphones & they have 3 or 4 different bartender apps that were all FREE, yet it seems that everything for our Blackberries costs us.


thats why i'm leaving BB for the iphone4... i'm tired of all the RIM bs, we all sit around hoping for improvements, better apps, but nothing comes.


i wish bb had a free mixed drink app like iphone does


Those look like the best two apps because they have the most recipes and the ability to search for what you can make by what you currently have..


These are good apps. But I wouldn't pay for it. They should have it free like on the iPhones. Makes me wanna migrate to iPhone4 when it comes to Malaysia.


I don't need to mix a drink I need to drink some drinks. So what I would like is a free B.A.C. App. I've looked on the app world and they only have one but it charges.

If you want an iPhone go and get an iPhone and stop whining. The BlackBerry is not an iPhone and its not the same other then its mobile and has applications. I wish people would learn the difference between the devices and stop comparing them. No one is forcing you to use a BlackBerry you made the choice when you bought it.

Next time do a little more research and realize it's not a gameboy it's a business device that is secure as hell. If you want to go play games, go play them just don't cry when all your information is leaked to the world.


This app is great. Thrown some great parties using this
