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:
Weather Plus lite is brought to use from the folks at MMMOOO. It's an advanced weather application which adds a indicator direct to your homescreen without the need of having a "weather slot" enabled theme. The options are easy to follow and you can set it up however you do so wish. Best of all it's free.
These days staying in shape is at the top of the list for many folks out there. One free application available is Weight Tracking. Weight Tracking allows you to create an accnt for all your inputted fields which you can view on the web or through the application. It allows for tracking such things as weight, body fat, water percentage and more. Once your information is collected, it can then be tracked and even exported to an Excel document.
Stocks+is in open beta currently. The developers over at BerryBlow have set up shop in the CrackBerry forums for users to download and share experiences with the application. Stocks + is an automatically updating stock information application which allows you to instantly know at a glance how your stocks are doing. The application will update and run directly on your homescreen or through the UI itself which is quite easy to navigate and looks superb.
In Case You Missed It:
Screen captures from your device can be super handy. For the Crack Team we often use screenshots in reviews and posts, but there are loads of other uses. With Screen Muncher you can grab captures of BBM conversations, emails, Brickbreaker scores, homescreen layouts and tons more. Screen Muncher lets you do all that with ease and has a sweet munch sound to let you know its working. Just choose Munch Screen from your BlackBerry menu and then you can save or send off you image in an instant. The free version of Screen Muncher watermarks your images, but a full-version (that is watermark-free) is also available.
Twitter For BlackBerry
After having been in beta for quite a while, Research In Motion has now removed the "beta" tag from their application. The full roll out of launch has no completed and many users are checking out what, exactly has been added to the final release. If you are a Twitter user, be sure to check it out.
Reuters has released a pretty cool application for BlackBerry if you find yourself enjoying their collection of picture galleries. The application itself is pretty straightforward, you simply install it and you instantly have access to view all of the available picture galleries. Not much else goes on with the app but, it does function well and pics load up rather quickly which is always nice to see. It's currently available for the Bold 9700, 9000 and Storm series devices.
New This Week
Now this is a really neat app that you may want to check out. Especially if you are a information hound about how your device is working and running overall. SystemDash is an All-in-One utility, combining many useful features for your device in a single elegant application. It includes a number of sought after features such as a memory booster, battery level alerts, storage and device information, download here!
imgEdit is a image editing application for the BlackBerry(R) especially BlackBerry(R) OS5 and higher. You can use imgEdit to manipulate the image such as rotating in 90, 180 and 270 degrees, flip and mirror the image, add special effect such as GreyScale, Sepia, Negative, Emboss, Scatter and many more effects. If the image is too big to send via email you can resize the image, add custom text, import a frame image to put around the image. For advanced users you can use the RGB and HSB feature to alter the color of the image. An added bonus is the Warhol effect. Changes in the image can be saved in JPG format or email to anyone.
