In Case You Missed It:

PlugItIn

Plug It In app alerts when your battery is low - Perfect for new Torch owners! -  Plug It In  is a simple app that pops up an alert when you battery is low. You can set the threshold (I like it at 30) and when your battery gets down, Plug It In alerts you with a popup, colored LED and sound (if you choose). This way you can get your device plugged in and charge up before it eats it. Whats cool is that Plug It In also shows a notification in the banner after your threshold level letting you know exactly how much battery power is left. Charge up the device again and the notification goes away. Granted there shouldn't be a need for this app, but if you want to keep up and running without the fear of your device randomly shutting down, this is definitely the way to go.

Plug It In is available as a free download for the Torch 9800 and other devices in the CrackBerry App Store. Be sure to check out all the other great apps from ShaoSoft while you're there.

Podcasts

BlackBerry Messenger Updated - v5.0.1.38 now available for download -  The latest BlackBerry Messenger is live. Through BlackBerry Beta Zone, RIM had released v5.0.1.32 but, the live links to the update are showing v5.0.1.38. You can hit the BlackBerry Messenger link  to download the latest version.

FileScout

FileScout 2.0 - Updated to support BlackBerry 6 and new features -  Matthias, has released v2.0 of FileScout which adds some new features to the app and ensure BlackBerry 6 support.

New features include:

  • RibbonBar for TouchScreen Devices (incl. the new 9800 Torch!)
  • ZIP Browsing: When you have marked a ZIP you can select, if you would like to extract the complete archive or if you would like browse the content of the ZIP.
  • New ZIP-Browsing Key ShortCuts (TouchScreen Devices will show a own ZIP-Browsing RibbonBar to offer identical functionality)
  • Small Menu tweak for OS6 (to keep the OS and FileSout MenuItems separated from each other)
  • When the ‘File Rename Dialog’ will be opened the filename is already selected

What’s Fixed?

  • Opening directories containing a lot of files should be way faster then before
  • Possible dead lock while browsing images fixed
  • A lot of small tweaks and some small menu name adjustments

If you don't already have FileScout you can pick up the premium version for $6.99 which, comes with a free trial.

Cool In BlackBerry App World:

TyperLearn

TyperLearn by Fabian Heuwieser - This Application for BlackBerry© devices allows the user to become a fast typer and increase his/her typing skills. It is aimed at users who are new to BlackBerry© or at those who just cannot type fast but really need this skill.

The App contains 48 Lessons for you to type and when you have completed 10% of the Lessons, you can take the first Test, after 20% the second Test, after 50% the third Test, after 70% the forth Test and after 90% the last Test. For each completed Lesson, the typing speed (in word-per-minute) is displayed so that you can see in which Lessons you still have to get better and in which you already are a champ. The total average words-per-minute speed is also displayed.
