BlackBerry App Roundup for July 2nd, 2010

Does it load faster than google? I just hate to take up space with something that is available other ways?

You can already email memo's from you BB with the native memo app, no other software needed.

I agree with siha. No one should purchase the $2 app Memo Mailer when you can already do that in the native OS.

Just go into the MemoPad, highlight a memo title, click the Menu button and choose Forward As...

When I go to the UniBrowse app page, it shows that the app is $0.99, and that it is not free.

I wish it was.

UniBrowse was switched to paid some time before this article came out. The last-day change had escaped the author's notice, and this article had escaped the developer's notice.

UniBrowse has now been switched back to Freeware since it's mentioned here as a freebie.

Support for the uZard browser has been added.
