BerryBuzz for BlackBerry - 100 Free Copies to be Won!



I was looking for an app like this, to customize the color and the frecuency of the led. The issue i have with bb storm is that the normal led color is green, and the alert one is red. I can't distinguish this two colors, so I had to install this free app for the violet lost call led.

But this app is panacea for me. Lets have a try

i think this app is pretty sweet. i always look at my phone to see if the LED light is going off and i think its even sweeter that now ill know if its something important causing the light to flash because i will know the different colors.

I just wish that I would win one of these contest one of these days.
I just love it is a great resource for all to enjoy.

This apopoears to be a very useful app.
Hope I win one, Please?

I will Rock-Paper-Siccors-Lizard-Spock you for one! Oh--darn we both Spocked! Try again.

Yay for me!

What a rip though, in order to enter the contest, you basically give up your 50% off .. So if you lose..

I'm a bit of a configuration obsessor with all of the different tech gear and softwares I own and use on a daily basis. I always have to learn every possible way to alter, enhance, upgrade and/or be able to optimize these said devices and apps. Because of this, sometimes time consuming, OCD behavior I tend to come up with ideas for features, and or capabilities, that I wish developers could have possibly added in their final products. this eventually became the case with my blackberry curve. Don't get me wrong though, I absolutely love my Blackberry and am quite content with it's current abilities but I'm always looking to enhance my user experiance in anyway possible and after looking over what Berry Buzz has to offer, I find my self giddy as a little school girl over the fact that Instango has created an app that seems to have taken into account all of the features I've wished for during my Blackberry daily use and am thrilled to try this guy out. I'm optimistic my Blackberry addiction will steadily increase after installing Berry Buzz.

Charlie! Charlie. Charlie.... wake up! Wake up, Charlie. You must download berrybuzz-ahhhhh. Yeah Charlie, download berrybuzz. It'll be an adventure, Charlie, It will bring sweets and joy and joyfulness, Charlie. Yeah, Charlie. Berrybuzz, Charlie. Charlie!

I think this is a great app. However, I downloaded the trial version on my storm and I can't seem to figure out how to make it work.

This looks like a very interesting addition to the BB software. Definitely a worth-while approach to handling message notifications! :-)

I would love to try this out!!!

Please tell me that I am one of the 100,,,,,,,,,,,

I am looking forward to this program!

Thank you

A must need app for Important messeges that you will know ahead of just looking to see if you have messege when you see the light blink...

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on!!!!! see how much it drains my battery more than normal.

Can't complain too much though, as it is, listening to music off the media disk, or through Slacker, while reading a book on MobiPocket and having bluetooth on at the same time for a couple hours waiting in an airport and still having over 75% of my battery remaining isn't so bad.

But changing the color of LED's sounds like fun as well.

This application seems long overdue. I think most people(outside the Crackberry universe) would assume the Blackberry would already have these features -- custom alerts (including LED), etc.

Love a copy of this!
Finally instead of a red led which could be anything from a missed call, to sms, to email to gmail, I could tailor each alert to a specific colour
Pick me!

This is really something RIM should be offering by default in their new Smartphones, so good on Bellshare for developing this.

This would be a nice application to have. Especially if you use your BB to remind you of things you sometimes forget to do...

Certainly sounds like a terrific app. I've always wondered why my Bold didn't flash till I acknowledged the message.

Now, all I need is to look at the flashing color light to know exactly what message I am getting.....

Highly recommended...


This app sounds awesome. I take many calls, emails, text, BB messenger, all day on my blackberry, and in a lot of meetings where my phone is either on vibrate or silent and this would be awesome app for me so I can distinguish what kind of call, message, I'm receiving.

This is an excellent program!It makes my daily life quite convenient.Your eximious work will be appreciated by all of the BBers.No matter if i can get this free,i will support you anyway.

So okay, I use BBalerts, but this is far better. It has both Vib/Ring and all my colors...not too bad! I want this!

I could really use be able to tell at a (blinking) glance what kind of message is awaiting me would be really, really helpful, especially in a meeting when I have it silenced.

This would be the perfect App for letting me know what is going with out always having to pick up my storm and unlock it.
