Featured BlackBerry Apps

BerryBuzzBerryBuzz

BerryBuzz claims to be the 'essential alert tool for every BlackBerry'. So what makes it so good? It extends your built-in alert system by allowing you to customize the LED color for many alert types and keeps the light flashing for longer than the default 15 minutes. It will also repeat alerts until acknowledged to ensure you never miss an alert. BerryBuzz also features a customizable vibrate feature for incoming calls that allows you to have your Berry ring and vibrate for an incoming call.

StormSlotsStormSlots

BlackBerry Storm users that want a nifty little app to kill a few minutes should check out Storm Slots from developer David Grant. It features high quality images and online scoring so that you can compete and compare your scores against others from around the world. StormSlots is addicting and fun, just like the real thing :)

iVista 2 ThemeiVista 2 Theme

Vista fans (there are some of those, right?) will be pleased to know that there's a new version of the Vista theme available to spruce up your BlackBerry. iVista 2 is available for all current models of Berry including the Bold, Storm, 8800 and 8300 (sorry, no 8900 version yet). The theme combines the best iPhone icons and the clean look of Vista for a very unique look.

New BlackBerry Apps

PhoneFace for the BlackBerry StormPhoneFace for the BlackBerry Storm

PhoneFace, the popular app that lets you find, select and dial contacts via full-color photos is now available for the BlackBerry Storm. The interface is simple to use and makes it very easy to flick through your contacts to quickly send off a text, email, or make a call. There's also a built-in Facebook utility that lets you import Facebook profile pictures for your Facebook friends that are in your contacts list!

myTimesmyTimes

Travel a lot or simply need quick access to different time zone information so that you don't wake that important client up with a poorly timed phone call? myTimes allows you to keep track of time zones around the world using your Berry's preloaded time zone configurations. There's also a cool screensaver that comes with the app that you can configure to your liking. The screensaver comes with an ALT+SPACE unlock feature to protect from unwanted button presses.

The Running GizmoThe Running Gizmo

You into running? I used to run a whole lot... traveled a whole whack of miles in my running shoes back in the day... Suppose that's why this one caught my eye. With The Running Gizmo you can predict your race times for races from the 1500 meter through a marathon distance. Use it to calculate training paces for workouts including intervals, repetitions, threshold, marathon and even easy paced runs. A very handy app for any runner's toolkit.

Free BlackBerry Apps of the Week

BerryScreenCleanerBerryScreenCleaner

This one might seem a bit ridiculous (and it is) but it's all in good fun for the BlackBerry Storm users out there. If you're tired of wiping and cleaning your screen, why not let a handy app do it for you!? :P Open the app, and splashes of water appear on screen, and a mop appears. Tilt and turn your Storm to mop up the mess, and your screen is sparkling clean. :)

BerryTorchBerryTorch

Want to turn your BlackBerry into a flashlight? That's exactly what BerryTorch does... well, sorta. It turns your screen into a bright white screen, and activates your LED as well. I've actually found instances where I could have used an app like this, so it's definitely handy to have installed, just in case. And hey, the price is right.

BlackBerry App Roundup for March 13th, 2009!

6 Comments

Mine went to the downloads folder as usual - then I moved it to main screen. Works fine except that it dims after a few seconds, and I really don't want to change the 'light sensor' feature for the screen - which I beleive must be the culprit.

I wish someone would write a program to enable you to sync a Palm device directly to a Blackberry Storm without having to go the Outlook route. I have a U.S. Government locked up tight computer and keep my schedule on my personal Palm. Now that I have a Blackberry Storm of my own, non Government issue, I would like to Sync the appointment schedule calendar to my Blackberry, There is no easy way to do that if at all. I want to keep using my Palm
Anyone have a solution?.

I would take a look at OpenSync - there are plugins for both Palm and BlackBerry (see Barry).
