The classic game of hangman has arrived on the BlackBerry. Guess a correct letter and it will appear, guess incorrectly and another piece is added to the man. You have 7 chances to guess the secret word, or it'll be lights out for the stick man! Thousands of words and phrases are found in 5 main categories (general, dictionary, movies, tv, places) and 23 sub-categories. A fun little game.

Kama SutraKama Sutra

This is exactly what you think it is. The complete Kama Sutra is your guide to the history, purpose, partners and arts of kama sutra. 20 positions are described and illustrated for your reference. All that is required here is OS 4.2 or higher and 300K of free memory. I have a feeling this one is going to get downloaded a few times...

Color PopperColor Popper

In this new game from Link-two, your goal is to match four or more neighboring objects of the same color. To do this you use your paintbrush which is displayed at the bottom of the screen. When you touch an object, it will change depending on its color and the color of the paint brush. If the object is blue and the paintbrush is red, the object will turn purple... You get the idea. To continue on to the next level you have to eliminate an assigned number of items before time runs out. Oh, this is a Storm game too... Yep, it needs OS 4.7.

BlackBerry App Roundup for March 20th, 2009!


"CallsBlocker is a simple app for the BlackBerry Storm that allows you to block unwanted calls from specific numbers, unknown callers, private or withheld numbers. "

Just wanted to add this also works great on the Bold.

The problem with this app is that it only stops the call from ringing your phone. The caller will still be directed to your voicemail, so what's the point?

Not if you have the phone set up like I do :)
I use the free Youmail service for my voicemail, which allows me to 'ditch' callers by directing them to voicemail and NOT letting them leave any message. However, the phone still rang and I had to wait through that. Now with CallsBlocker installed, the phone doesn't ring, and it just goes to voicemail for them. And coupled with Youmail, well, they can't even leave a message.

Basically, free Youmail + free Callsblocker = Complete freedom from ever hearing from that # again. However, they can still text you if they know your number...haha.

ok i just realized i might need to add this to the cb store before you post it? i will do that tomorrow so i get added to next weeks.

These prices are outrageous???

The most expensive one is 7 bucks! That statement is outrageous. If you're looking for something for nothing go get a job at AIG.

Can anyone tell me what they think of real IBerry.......Im thinkg of buying it and would love some feedback.

It's an alright theme, I have tried it, personally if you want the best theme in my eyes go with the crossbar plus theme. I have tried both the corssbar extreme and plus and the plus is better in my eyes.

The iphone theme is a little too bubly for me.

If you want a good Iphone theme. I have tried them all, and iberry 3g is by far the best. It makes your icons on the home screen move right to left, like the actual iphone. Very nice feature.

I have the iberry theme and I love it. It is a matter of personal taste however and I understand the member who says it's too bubbly. I however love the apple look and think this theme is great. I had to have elecite update mine once the official plazmic hit the streets, however.

I can't get CallsBlocker to work on my Storm. I put a number in it today to block and it got through 3 times. Am I missing something?

The instructions say you have to reboot first, did you try that? I am still working on mine, so I don't know if this is successful.
