Mr. Number Call Block by Skydeck - is the most powerful free call blocker available
on your BlackBerry® smartphone. It comes from the team that brought you Mr. Number Caller ID, the most popular mobile Caller ID service in the US. It’s fully customizable. You can block a single phone number or a contact, block private numbers, block a whole area code, or block the world. You can also create a whitelist of people who always get through. Hate your hometown but love your Mom? Block the area code and add her to the whitelist.
Facebook - version 184.108.40.206 is available for download from BlackBerry App World. The new version has been long awaited by Facebook fans everywhere and now, you can check out the latest release available. The feedback on this release has been much better compared to other releases so, be sure to grab it if Facebook is your thing.
iHazWeather - With a tiny footprint of just 190KB, this simple app gives you just that, the weather. Current conditions are displayed on the homescreen, and launching the app provides a snapshot of the day and a 3 day forecast. A tip of the hat to the developer for displaying the temp in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, there aren't many that allow for the fact that Canadian (and other metric countries) users exist. Set your location, or allow the app to use your current GPS location, choose your refresh rate and you're set. That easy. If you're looking for an app that will give you a full forecast, or tell you how many inches of rain are currently falling on your head, you have lots of choices. If you just want a simple icon on your screen with the current conditions, check this one out. Available in the CB store for $1.99 for multiple devices, including the Torch.
7digital - Music Store BlackBerry app, users can easily browse (by artist, tag or album) and buy DRM-free high quality MP3 music. Included in the application is a media player; enabling you to import your playlists and MP3 files. You can also check out the charts, weekly features and new music. The application has been updated to version 1.4.5 and now includes the following:
ShortCutManager - The ultimate shortcut manager for the BlackBerry OS6. No need to create special Lauchers for shortcuts on the HomeScreen ever anymore. Use Shortcut Manager to manage all your shortcuts for email, sms, pin, email, website, phone call, appt, memo, task, video, mp3 songs, search Youtube and more.
You can even create a complete email, sms or pin message and then send the message by just Launching the shortcut and then select Send. Creating speed dial is simple.

With all shortcuts you can set the Icon name, normal icon and rollover icon.
