BerryBuzz for BlackBerry - 100 Free Copies to be Won!



We are "CRACK"berrys and now we can add Berry"BUZZ" to our Berries so we can get a "Buzz"! I'm beginning to think my addiction is expanding day by day. I can't wait to see what my next berry addiction will be.

I want to be that guy. Currently my friends ask me about my autotext, and other assorted fancy sh*t. Help me continue on being cooler then the other guys.

the storm really should have had these features built in, but oh well. guess got nothing to loose!

I missed this feature when I moved from my sharp 903sh to the iphone and then the bold. Luckily the bold has the flashing red indicator whereas the iphone has nothing. The 903sh had the ability to have different colors set to different notifications. I really miss it because it definitely comes in handy especially in quiet situations.

Posts like this keeps me coming back to Crackberry. BuzzMe didn't do the trick for me so I really hope I win this.

This is the cure for one of the worst built-in apps on the BlackBerry.
- A must-have for everyone.

This was the only reason I used Peek-a-Who! I feel like the default red notifier light clashes with my sunset housing, and I need my berry looking sharp!

This sounds like a great app. The blog post also taught me something new about my crackberry bold. Never knew that the LED reminder only lasts 15 minutes. You learn something new everyday :). A must have app for anyone. Especially with the vibe and ring feature.

I've been looking for a way to change my led alert colors from the red, green, or yellow. My friend had told me about an app that he downloaded for his curve. I'm glad I saw this blog.

How come its not possible to change the colour of the trackball on the bold but you can on the pearl??



Looks like a pretty sweet little app. I like the ability to keep the message light going after the 15 minute limit and the vibe and ring would be great too.

I love that you've been able to optimize it to save battery life and memory. I will definitely be loving this app if the battery isn't being killed. Way to go!

this is an awesome app!! i never thought i would want a blackberry until i bought my Curve 8320 last summer. it's the best phone i have ever had!!! and i have had a ton over the last 10 years. this looks like a killer app and a free copy would be even better!

That's what I'm talking about. Bellshare found a need and filled it. This application sounds awesome. This app will be on my phone whether they give it to me or I purchase it.

I really hope I get a little luck with this one. I entered all those contests last wk and didn't win nething. This looks really cool tho...fingers crossed!

So im using the 5 day free trial and so far i think it's wonderful that u can actally custominze the LED colors. This was really one of the few things missin from a BB!

I am SOOOO excited to have my phone ring and vibrate at the same time!!! That's the best! And I hope the LED has purple! I'm going to download the free trial now! woo hoo!

I was just looking at this app on my way to work one morning via an article I was reading using Viigo on my Bold, and this app caught my eye. I was already contemplating on buying this, but decided to wait, as it's not a need but more of a want. Yeah I know, blame it on the credit crunch! It would be wonderful though if I were to win this! I guess that's one way you beat the bloody crunch!

I just purchased the BerryBuzz app. I am not very pleased with it. I am a newbie tot he BB world but I still dont think that its me. I installed and followed the directions as i was supposed to. Set up all the settings. I tested it by sending an email and text and I was going to let it blink longer then 15min without checking it to see if it worked. well I touched the screen and the LED colors I choose stopped completely. Not even the service green led indicator came on. and now its back to default red blinking. Can anyone shine some light on this?

I never win these things but I thought I'd give it a shot.

I love my blackberry 8900 and having berry Buzz would make it that much better!

Have downloaded the trial and noticed its a tad buggy but I need to play around with it a little and keep track of the colors I've selected. So far I do like it though. Way to go with the purple, now if only these was a pink/magenta. Hope I can win the full app!

Dear CB show me some love, now that I made CB officially famous at Holland's #1 mobile blog MobileCowboys.

need this badly for the storm, and it's free if won, one would think you could do this staight out of the box, but leave it to RIM to have us shell out more $$$ for every detail.....

i wanna win this... i didnt get a chance to win the others but i have a high chance of winning this one!... cant wait! so PICK MEEE pleaseeeee

I'm new to Blackberry and when I got my Storm I wish this was a standard setting option for the phone. GIMME GIMME! lol

that was my horsach impression, anyway, this sounds like a great app!!! i might have to start sending myself every type of message just to see the LED colors alternating for a bit.

Sounds like an awesome app, just what I need for keeping track of who is pinging me from my large family. I'm off to give the trial a spin. Good luck to all in contest!

This should have been in the OS as core functionality, but Kudos the the developers for getting this out for us!

this would help me out a ton at work I never know what I miss while I'm out workin....
when I get back to my berry I gotta fumble around to see this would make it a ton easier

I have a gut feeling I will get notify on Friday that me, Gerry, I have one the Buzz me application! =====)))))

so all i have to do is leave a comment and im entered to win? i really hope i win this, i could so use this app. im tired of having to guess what the blinking red light on my 8330 is alerting em to. setting different light colors for different notifications? One word-SWEEEEEET! =]
on a side note, Good luck to everyone else.

i always wanted this but never could afford to pay 6 dollars for this. I hope i win unlike the other crackberry contests :(

Nice App! Are there any apps that can make the colour change on the trackball on a curve like on the pearl too?

This App seems to be generating alot of "Buzz", and will shines the light on alot things that I need my berry to do.

I dsffinently can see this as a very useful tool. App is an app this is a great tool.

I have looked at this app several times and nowwith a chance for a free shot at it - I am all over it!

Posting for the Freebie :)


umm.. i just tried the free trial. its pretty awesome. its so useful for for deciding whether i should waste my time by picking up the phone just by see the color of the LED.

This app is exactly what I have been looking for! Missed the reminder notifications from all my previous non-bb phones. Thanks for creating this!

This would be so cool for my 8310 Curve. It would set it apart like no other. Plus I can tell which messages would be safe to look

Wow.. this is increidble. I would love to have this as I am constantly driving and miss calls and texts, having colored lev's would help greatly =)
