Trillian

Trillian for BlackBerry - We made sure folks knew about the release and even did up a review of the beta for you all. Now, a few short months later we have the officially released version available for download through BlackBerry App World. As noted on the Trillian blogs, Trillian is available for $4.99 as an introductory offer so if you're interested you might want to grab it up as soon as possible in case the price increases at some point. Sadly though, no free trial of the instant messaging application is currently available. For $4.99 we certainly hope Cerulean Studios reconsiders the possibility of putting in say a "light" version for users to at least try out.

$4.99 In BlackBerry App World

Internals

Internals - is a new application for those who feel the need to monitor their device stats, from the same company that brought you AntennaGate. Building on the premise of AntennaGate, they have expanded the idea into a full device monitoring application, covering battery, app memory and storage memory in addition to signal strength. This information can be used as a great diagnostic for your usage, giving you clues aboutwhat apps are eating up your battery life, or taking up app memory. Each "meter" has it's own set of options, allowing you to drill down to specifics by setting different refresh rates or view different information about the function you are monitoring. For example, the battery display allows you to see a graph of your charge, the battery temperature, or the voltage output. Clicking the "report" function will show you an entry by entry log of the information displayed on the graph in text form.

Available in the CB store for $7.99

New This Week:

Rendezvous

Rendezvous - acts as an extension to the default calendar on your BlackBerry device. It fills the demand for two functions which your calendar (and many other third-party calendars) cannot currently pursue. This application tells you the time remaining until your calendar events happen (or how much time has elapsed since they have happened) in years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds; you can even customise which of these to show and which not to show. As well as this, it comes with a "Jump By..." function, which lets your calendar time jump by a certain amount into the future, again eliminating the need to count. This application saves time and is especially recommended for those who use the calendar frequently.

Features:
  • The information displayed is 100% precise (and leap years are accounted for) whether your event is in the future or in the past;
  • Integrates directly onto the default calendar on your BlackBerry, so you don't have to worry about exporting and importing your events;
  • The "Jump By..." feature sets your calendar's date to that a certain number of days/weeks/months/years ahead, so you don't have to manually count;
  • You can customise which time fields are displayed. For example, if you prefer working with days instead of months (or hours instead of weeks etc.), you have the ability to do so;
  • You can customise how many time fields are displayed. For example, if your event is 2 months, 3 days, 4 hours, 26 minutes and 42 seconds away, instead of having all time fields displayed a significant number can be set, which shows the highest time fields; in the above example, if I set this to 2 then "2 months and 3 days" will be shown.
On sale for $1.99 in the CrackBerry store.

I would love an unlock code, as I have to sell my S1 and S2, and Bell Mobility won't give out the codes, even to customers.

Really need this badly - I need to ulock my Blackberry Bold so I can sell it. Just got my new Torch! Sweeeet!

Peace...

ok now first off yes i am posting here to say this is a great opportunity for those ppl that got torches and want them unlocked for themselves or to sell it cuz they dont want it anymore however i am here to say i love these app roundups and it has helped me find apps that i might not find on my own that i would use now back to the unlock code i dont need one and dont want one as i still have one from cellunlock im just waiting on getting a device to use it on so please do not pick me i just came along to say how much i love these app roundups and how useful they are i kinda wish they came more often than every friday sometimes just to help me keep up on the new apps coming out lol good luck to all you new torch BB owners going out for the unlock codes and yet again CB always has great contests :D

Different post...2 seperate contests.. I gave away 10...and the other gave away 25? So users had a chance at 35 total.. I see no problem with 35 copies, do you? :)

I've been trying to win something... anything lately... i really wanted the hypoxia... guess i gotta shell out the bucks for it so... maybe now that its 100 copies to give away i might atleast have a chance now!!!

I have unlocked my BB 9550, and my wife got mad cause i didn't unlock her tour. Please let me win a code for hers.

CrackBerry, gotta love ya... Hook a brotha up with one of those Unlock codes for my BlackBerry. Lets see what it can unleash once unlocked

pick me for one of those free unlock codes.
me please please!!!!!!!!!
need to free my blackberry 9700 :P
i hope i win!
Crackberry is the site. you guys rule!!

Please i would really like to have one unlock code, i have a BB 9700 and i live in Mexico right now, here the codes cost to MUCH! Money. So please CB unlock my BB! :D

I would use this with an old Curve for my niece. And I hope fashionsports would die so they stop spamming the comments area.

Pls pls pls pls!! :D I neeeeeeddd one! :O i'm about to change company and I need to unlock my BB to keep using it :S

:D Great Contest!!

I would love to win an unlock code for my soon to be torch once it hits Canada. Good luck to all and thanks CB and Cell Unlock for this amazing contest.

"I mean really",let me win just ONCE. Been trying for over a year. Thanx anyway, I'm almost certain ill be looked over yet again=)

Help a girl out! I would greatly appriciate an unlock code for my BlackBerry considering it is an ATT phone and I am on T-mobile> My 9700 was stolen a few weeks ago and I spent all my money on getting a new transmission for my car... times are tough,but im positive my beloved CrackBerry staff can help me out~ Peace- cherryjuice

Would greatly appreciate an unlock code for my Torch. Bought the unlock code for my Bold previously from you folks.

Think of it as a two for one sale!

Thank you for this really nice contest!
I'd love to get my phone unlocked since Rogers said "It's not our policy to hand out codes".

So thanks again.

I just got my new Torch and i definitely could use an unlock code, cause ATT wont be giving them out any time soon, as they are exclusive!!!!

Hope I win!!

I recently get a replacement 9700. I had my first unlocked. No time for the second to be unlocked. Would be great to get it again.

Would the powers-that-be be interested in granting me success in this venture? I wouldn't complain if they did.

I could really use that. I'm getting ready to sell mY BB for a new one. I'd love to unlock it first. PICK ME!

being in Canada and stuck with the big 3 voice/data plans leaves me to wonder... really? do i want service up here? .. unfortunately i do. so i was stuck debating which place to by a BB for the best plan without getting stuck on a 3yr contract. so i bought my BB9700 from telus, because they offered the best plan for my needs at a 1 yr contract. now it looks like i'm relocating to the states. don't want to have to buy another BB so i'd like to have her unlocked :) ... although atleast i'll have access to a torch! :)

thx!

It's my turn to win something, please. I unlocked my Bold and Curve with CellUnlock and that worked out great. I now have a Torch and would love to have it unlocked. Thanks

This is my 3rd 8900. The other 2 I got unnlocked. Then the keyboard froze on them. Got replacement units, but I haven't unlocked this one yet. Hope this will do it! Thanks Cellunlock.net! Thanks CB!

Definitely would love to have my phone unlocked, travelling to Europe soon, was going to call AT&T but this would be so much easier. Thanks Crackberry and CellUnlock for the opportunity!

Can someone help me get that Bibliosearch? Appworld says it's not available for my carrier or device. I have Tmobile and 9700.

Hi Crackberry,

i recently purchase an at&t torch through my friend in states to be used in Indonesia.
it will be great to be able to get the unlock code for it for free, and it will be more meaning full if i get it for free and from Crackberry so i can brag to my friend that participate in a contest (that usually we in Indonesia avoid, cause just wasting time) is not that bad at all.

looking forward for my wish to be come true, although will still reading Crackberry even if i didn't get to win in this contest :).

good luck.

i living in ecuador right now and i bought a blackberry here and it would be awesome to be able to take it back to the states and use it there please let me get one!

Great timing!! I'm traveling in a few weeks and would LOVE an unlock code! Please! I'll cross my fingers!

I like unlocking my phone. My phone is locked. It would be great to be able to use my phone with another SIM but it's too expensive. Please, MTV, Pimp my Ride!!! I mean... wait... retake... Please, Crackberry, Unlock my Phone!!!!

:D

Thank you guys for the contest! I really hope I can win an unlock code for my new Torch! Crossing fingers!

I would be sooooo ecstatic to win free unlock code. Right now I'm utilizing wifi. Cannt afford data pck as of now. Unlocking my bold 9700 will allow me to get back on board. Fingers crossed :)). Thanks for a GREAT contest CellUnlock.
