TGIF Folks! Time for another BlackBerry app round up. I'm starting to get the hang of this now, despite a little mix up last week. As I had mentioned last week, we have now have contests on the roll again so be sure to check it out. This week, 50 free copies of Weather Plus will be given away to some of you all out there. And be sure to check out all the other apps we look at as well. Cheers, enjoy your weekend folks!


Freebies of the Week: Twinkle, iCaller Location, Phone Logger Lite

In Case You Missed It: SmartBdocs, Peek-A-Go, BeerPong

New This Week: FoneFinder, Smart Bunny 2 Chinese Checkers, Complete Home First Aid

Cool at BlackBerry App World: Cell Network Or Wi-Fi

Contest: Enter to win 1 of 50 free copies of Weather Plus

Note: Don't forget, you can always search for titles featured in the App Roundup within App World... Some apps mentioned may be available there for your device.

Freebies Of The Week:

Twinkle

Twinkle - allows you to set and keep track of upcoming and past events. Twinkle will tell you how far away an event is, and allow you to add it to your calendar.

Download For Free In BlackBerry App World>>

iCaller Location

iCaller Location v1.2.02 - iCallerLocation shows the area code, city, and state of the incoming caller (United States only) and pinpoints the location on the Blackberry Maps. You will know where the call is coming from within the United States (will cover all cities in North America in the future). Mapping caller’s location is automatic with every incoming call.

  • Automatic look up.
  • Automatic pinpoints the location on the Blackberry Maps.
  • Actual and valid 443,435 NPA/NXX combination in the North American Numbering Plan.

Download iCallerLocation Today For Free>>

Phone Logger Lite

Phone Logger Lite v1.0.3 - Ever wish you could view more than your last 20 calls made, received or missed? Made or received a call from someone and you can't remember the number? Phone Logger enables you to generate Call logs and sort them by date, type of call, duration and caller. Email reports of all phone activity on demand, any time! Includes all placed, received and missed calls.

Logs and Reports include:

  • Date
  • Person
  • Phone Number
  • Call Status
  • Duration

Email your Log in several formats:

  • Excel
  • txt
  • csv

Note: Due to device limitations, OS 5 users are limited to a rolling 30 day history of calls.

Download Phone Logger Lite Today For Free>>

In Case You Missed It:

SmartBdocs

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.

PeekAGo

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.

BerrPong

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. Simply email or SMS the phone with your password and it will reply with the phones location - determined by GPS. The app also features a covert mode whereby it will delete location request emails on arrival. Simple to use.

Features:

  • Find a lost phone
  • Track your children
  • Track your employees or fleet
  • Find out where any blackberry phone is (with the app installed)
  • $1.99 until July 30 in the CB store
Download FoneFinder Today In The CrackBerry Store>>

SmartBunny2 Chinese checkers for BlackBerry  v1.0

SmartBunny2 Chinese checkers for BlackBerry v1.0 - Chinese checkers (a variant of Halma) is a popular family board game that can be played by two to six people. The objective of the game is to place one's pieces (marbles) in the corner opposite their starting position of a pitted hexagram by single moves or jumps over other pieces.

Features:

  • Play Chinese checkers against up to five computer players
  • $1.99 until July 31 in the CB store

Cool at BlackBerry App World:

CellOrWiFi

Cell Network or Wifi - is a small app that automatically listens for a WiFi connection and will successfully connect to the nearest WiFi spot and disconnect from the cell network. When out of WiFi range, your BlackBerry automatically reconnects to the cell network. It is easy to turn both On and Off with a single click of the application and shows its status with an icon/indicator on the home screen.

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? :)

Until Next Week..

I would like to check out Weather Plus.

ajcook

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.

cindave

I could use something other than my bald head to figure out what the weather is ;-)
