Word Shake for the StormWord Shake for the Storm

Fans of word games will love this one. The goal of the game is to find connected words. Can't find any? Simply shake your BlackBerry Storm and the board will rearrange itself... But be careful how often you do this as it will cost you points! Gameplay is easy, it makes great use of the Storm touchscreen and accelerometer... and heck, it's pretty good fun.

Pick up Word Shake for $2.99 at ShopCrackBerry.com >


Stained Glass for the StormStained Glass for the Storm

Yet another puzzle game joins us this week. Stained Glass is a great puzzle game that challenges you to reconstruct a stained glass that has been broken into a bunch of small pieces. As you progress through the game, the number of pieces needed to complete each puzzle grow and grow. A nice little puzzle game for sure.

Marble Rescue for the StormMarble Rescue! for the Storm

Might as well stick with the puzzle games! I know I've played this game before... on the PC, Mac, and on other devices as well... But for the life of me I can't remember what the proper or traditional name is. At any rate, this version is called 'Marble Rescue', and the whole goal of it is to rescue the blue marble block by getting it out of the frame. You do so by moving the other pieces around in the frame... It's a simple and challenging game, and gets harder and harder as you go.

BerryTweakBerryTweak

BerryTweak is a new utility that adds some new features to your Berry. It can automatically lock your screen and keyboard during calls, vibrate on specified key events, and even control the backlight settings after a call. All that is required here is a minimum of OS 4.2, and a free three day trial is available.

Get BerryTweak for $2.95 at ShopCrackBerry.com >


SiteLaunchSiteLaunch

SiteLaunch is a handy little utility that lets you launch your browser automatically at a specific time. Useful if you go to the same websites around the same time each day. Use it to check the weather, monitor stocks at certain points in the day, or just during that lunch break to read the latest news. Configure the URL and launch time, and SiteLaunch does the rest!

Get SiteLaunch for $4.95 at ShopCrackBerry.com >

Note: This is a Beta version, so if you purchase and run into any issues, be sure to let the developers know about it.


Free BlackBerry App

Berry Screen CleanerBerryScreenCleaner for the BlackBerry Storm

Tired of cleaning your Berry's screen? BerryScreenCleaner is a tongue-in-cheek app that 'virtually' cleans your screen for you. The app simulates splashes on your screen, and then a mop appears to clean off the splashes. Tilt your Storm to move the mop around, cleaning up the splashes in the process. Good 'clean' fun here.

Get BerryScreenCleaner for FREE at ShopCrackBerry.com >


Cool Stuff

HD Se7en ThemeHD Se7en Theme

Like the look of Windows 7, and want to skin it on top of your BlackBerry OS? Now you can, thanks to the HD Se7en theme. From the folks at Hedone Design, the Se7en theme gives you all of the looks of 7, while retaining all of the BlackBerry goodness you're addicted too. This theme is available for the Bold, 8300 series, 8100 series, and even the Storm.

Pick up the HD Se7en Theme for $7.00 at ShopCrackBerry.com >


Storm Level ProStorm Level Pro for the BlackBerry Storm

In case some Storm users out there haven't tried this one yet, thought I'd give it another mention here. If you've ever needed a ruler or level while on the go, or on a jobsite, Storm Level Pro turns your BlackBerry into both of those handy tools! Use it as a level on both a vertical and horizontal axis... It will adjust to each depending on the orientation of your device. There's also a ruler feature which can be set to display measurements in either inches or centimeters. Handy stuff!

where are the apps NOT for a storm?!?!?!

paliz

Has the Storm surpassed all the sales of the 8100's, 8300's, 8800's, Curve's, Bold's, Pearl's, and so on? WTF! Where are the featured apps for the MAJORITY of Blackberry users or has this website totally committed to the touchscreen Storm?

James Falconer

Ideal Home Manager, THEMES, BerryTweak, SiteLaunch and the Se7en theme are all available for devices other than the Storm.

This weeks' roundup was a little heavy on the Storm goodness I do have to admit... I'll try and cut back a touch on the Storm apps next week :)

the storm has been lagging behind the other blackberries in terms of what is comming out for it and how often since it has to be programmed differently. Let us storm owners have a good time knowing that for once, it was "Storm heavy" not "storm lite" like it always is.
geesh, youd think that the other BBs HAVENT had the better week nearly every week of their lives!

Please don't cut back on the Storm content!!

We need more content on apps for the Storm. There are already so many apps out there that don't work on the Storm (or don't work or look right). Being "heavy" on the Storm side is needed.

Heavy Storm apps is a PLUS!

Amen. Keep the storm comments coming. Love the new theme for the storm...

I understand the need for all the Storm apps, and I have to admit that some of them are really cool. Almost cool enough to make me want to get a Storm (great phone, just not for me). But when you go Storm heavy like this it really leaves the rest of us out. If it could be equaled out and for every Storm app there was one for the button based BB it would keep everyone happy.
