What You Might Have Missed

Zillow for BlackBerry 

If you're in the market for a new home there are plenty of apps out there to help you find what you need. Zillow is just one fish in the sea, but it is also one of the best. Today the Zillow BlackBerry App is available as a free download. The app can help in the pursuit of that perfect home, giving you the ability to search for homes right from your device. Features include:

  • Multiple search filters that include price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and other valuable home-related information.
  • Homes viewable on a map with high-resolution satellite and street view.
  • Home search by location or by typing in a city, ZIP code or address.
  • Full-screen color photos of homes.

The app uses GPS on your BlackBerry to find homes for sale or rent just where you need them. Grab it for free from the link below.

LiveProfile

Live Profile for BlackBerry

LiveProfile is an awesome cross-platform messaging app for Android and iOS, that is now available for BlackBerry. It features a very nice dark UI, as well as a ton of features you would come to expect in a messaging app, and a few you wouldn't. Here are some of those features:

  • Badges for sent, delivered, and read messages
  • Displays when a contact is typing (and when a contact is reading)
  • Ability to update status to Facebook and Twitter
  • Add contacts by scanning your address book, Twitter, and Facebook
  • PIN assigned to your account, for easy sharing
  • Coming Soon- Outgoing Photo Attachments

While we have seen some messengers come and go, or even just not live up to all of our high BBM standards, I think LiveProfile is by far the best of the bunch. It brings most of the core messaging features that we all need, and even adds a few other nice ones (Active Chat- Shows when contact is in the chat, reading messages). My favorite feature of LiveProfile is the way it adds friends to your contact list. Giving you the ability to scan your address book, Twitter, and Facebook is definitely the way to go, and is in no way intrusive, like some other messengers. It is also fast, I mean really fast. I dare say it's more instant than BBM.

Overall I think LiveProfile is the best cross-platform messaging solution out there. If you haven't checked it out, head over to their website for a free download. It is compatible with most BlackBerry devices running OS 4.5 and up. More screenshots after the break.

Weather Plus by MMMOOO

Weather Plus by MMMOOO

Weather Plus is brought to us from the folks at MMMOOO. It's an advanced weather application which adds push weather info to your BlackBerry's home screen and the app icon.

With 5 display modes for your home screen, you're sure to find one that suites you.
Weather Plus was updated this week, including a lot of bug fixes. MMMOOO also made some cool additions to the already feature packed application. Weather Plus was chosen as a Regional Selection Winners of the 2010 BlackBerry Super Apps Challenge, so you know the additions/fixes have just made this already great app even better.
