In Case You Missed It:


SmartBdocs - Extremely simple to use, simply launch the app, click the button for the document you wish to create, and name the file. A new document is saved to your media card, which you can then open and edit with Docs2Go. SmartBDocs is the perfect companion to that software, and costs a fraction of the upgrade fee you would pay otherwise. Available in the CB store for only $.99, you will be hard pressed to find a reason NOT to get this.


Peek-A-GO! - An update of the timeless peek-a-boo game (which still makes me giggle), Peek-A-GO! caters to young crowd; 0 to 3 years of age that is. Unlike Baby GO/ Super Baby GO, there is only one activity to play. Your child will have to press multiple buttons to reveal what is behind the curtain; which turn out to be animals (both real and fictional). It’s a great way to engage the attention of your child, as short as it is. The only problem I have is competing with my son for time with my BlackBerry. You can pick up Peek-A-GO! from BlackBerry App World for $2.99 USD.


BeerPong - Brings all the excitement of everyone's favorite game right to your device. No more warm beer or sticky Solo cups. Fire up Beer Pong and play by yourself or challenege a friend. The controls take a bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it you'll be a master in no time. No frilly options in this one so just download and go. While obviously not for everyone, most should get some good play from it and can even stay sober in the process. Beer Pong is available for $2.99 in the CrackBerry App Store.

New This Week:

FoneFinder  v1.0.0

FoneFinder v1.0.0 - This app allows you to find the location of the blackberry phone upon which it is installed. So if you've lost your phone, want to track your employees, children or find out how long until your partner is home from work, this is the app for you.

The app also features a covert mode whereby it will delete location request emails on arrival. Simple to use.

Contest Time:

Weather Plus

Look, I get it. I screwed up last week folks when I said Weather Plus was free, I am terribly sorry. In my defense, it was a promotional item that was listed as free when I downloaded it, and it was functional as I followed the instructions at the time. That out of the way, I noticed most folks were upset about this. So here I am with my efforts to correct this matter for you all. I reached out to the folks over MMMOOO who also sent their apologies for not making it clearer for everyone as well. In respect of it all, we got 50 copies of Weather plus to give away to you all. Drop your comments, we'll post up the winners at a later time. Now, can we all just hug this one out? :)

BlackBerry App Roundup for July 16th, 2010! Win one of 50 copies of Weather Plus



Will love to have Weather Plus on my BB, esp being able to see the weather on the home screen will be great.Will love it.

I'm severely in need of a good weather app. Other app just don't cut it for me. So pretty please? Hehehe

This is a must have for me, especially living in south florida where the weather changes are ridiculous. Please pick me.

In respect of it all, we got 50 copies of Weather plus to give away to you all. Drop your comments, we'll post up the winners at a later time. Now, can we all just hug this one out? :)

I am Crackberry holic. I love the site and love the free giveaways. This is truly great. I would love to have the free weather. Thanks Again Crackberry.

I have no problems with little mistakes, just shrugg them off, that's what i say. i would like this app. it would be really useful to me since i work in the elements and know the temp and or the chance of rain in s.e. louisiana is really helpfull. so thanks for the chance !!!

Dont worry...i am not a hata...Peace man...what better to bring peace than a free copy of Weather Plus. I would be interested in a free copy :)


I downloaded it for free.?.?. I deleted it cuz it was worse than BBeweather & Weather channel where I had really cool images & access to maps & radar but, It was free

I would love to have this app as long as it fails to report weather in and around Miami. Just trying to eliminate all things LeTraitor from my life.

Nice to see one taking responsibility for their errors. The freebee is a nice bonus!

I'd like a copy of Weather Plus!

I really enjoy the trying the different weather apps!! I would love to give this one a try, it looks very promising. So please count me in for a free copy, thanks!!!!

I have 2 free weather apps downloaded to get all the info I need and would much prefer to only need one. Thanks for another chance to win something great!

So I go to download the Cell network or Wifi on my 8530, and the description says all carriers and all devices. But does not work on my device or carrier. What gives?

So, what's up with BB Appworld? This is the second time in a few months that I've read a favorable review of some BB App, that is only available in BB Appworld, that I couldn't install.

In both cases, the apps were small, non-complicated apps. (In today's case, it's "Twinkle").

On BB Appworld (on my PC), the apps were both listed as compatible with all BB models, all carriers. Yet, when I try to install from the link sent to my phone BB Appworld on my phone tells me that the app is not compatible with my phone.

I wish BB Appworld were consistent between the phone app and the web site.

Now, there's no way for me to install Twinkle.

I never run into such a conflict with CrackBerry SuperStore. I wish Twinkle were available there.

Oh well. Life goes on.

I removed the app once I found out it wasn't free...maybe this time I will get lucky...fingers crossed! =}

Winning a Crackberry contest is on my bucket list and I just KNOW that with Weather Plus, it's gonna happen!

Would love to win this. I just came back to a Bold 9650 from a Moto Droid today, time to get some Crackberry love!
