It's a slow morning in the world of BlackBerry News, so this week's Friday Software Roundup is coming to you a day early!! I've got a lot of great new titles for you to check out this week... and a few 'cool' titles you might want to try. Time to get down to business. Covered this week are:

New BlackBerry Software: MyCaption, Traffic Vizzion, Ringtones Unlimited, Persistent.im, Tetris, SwooshPhotos

Updated BlackBerry Software: BBNotePad, Windows Live Messenger, PocketMac, CrazySoft Paintball

Cool Stuff: PGA Tour Tracker, Lenovo & Zumobi Olympics Widget, tiggit Mail


New BlackBerry Software

MyCaption for BlackBerryMyCaption

Ever want to speak your email into your BlackBerry? The dream is now a reality with MyCaption. MyCaption is the first service integrated into the workflow of BlackBerry email... which enables users to intuitively compose and reply to emails with their voice from within the native email application. The app will let you enter voice messages up to 3 minutes long, and you can review the email text before it goes out. Cool! MyCaption is a truly unique and time-saving app that looks very promising!

A free trial of MyCaption is available for Enterprise users by registering at the company's website at http://www.mycaption.com.

Note: MyCaption should work on the Pearl, Curve and 8800 series, and supports all major carriers worldwide.


Traffic Vizzion for BlackBerryTraffic Vizzion

Traffic Vizzion (pronounced 'vision') is now available for the BlackBerry. The app provides access to real-time traffic camera images throughout North America, UK, Ireland and New Zealand. 7,500 cameras are available in over 150 cities. If you have GPS on your Berry, you can have your precise location plotted on a map and center you on the screen at all times. Plus, the GPS features automatically pick up local cameras along your drive to provide you hands free information when you need it. It's the perfect app if you want to monitor the road ahead and make informed driving decisions based on traffic flows. Of course, I hope you concentrate on the ROAD a lot more than your Berry... Perhaps you need a co-pilot to help you with this one :)

A free two-week trial is available for download at http://www.vizzion.com


Ringtones Unlimited for BlackBerryRingtones Unlimited

Are you a ringtone junkie? If you are, then you might want to consider picking up Ringtones Unlimited from AIM Productions. With Ringtones Unlimited you will get unlimited access to a database of over 1,000 ringtones.. and new ones are getting added all of the time. The huge MP3 realtone collection also features exclusively recorded material for incoming calls, email, SMS alerts and more.

Purchase a 2-year unlimited access pass for $19.99 at ShopCrackBerry.com >


Persistent.imPersistent.im

Persistent.im recently went live. It's a cool cross-platform IM tool that works between AIM, Windows Live Messenger, ICQ, Jabber, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, and MySpaceIM by delivering all messages through a conference bot. The service is free and running in beta.

If you'd like to register for the beta, go ahead and click here.


Tetris for BlackBerryTetris

Arrange and twist the pieces as they fall... and clear as many lines as you can before the pieces reach the top. The classic game of Tetris is now available for your BlackBerry. Controls are insanely easy, simply use your trackball to play... nothing else. Make sure you stay focused, the pieces will start falling faster and faster as gameplay continues. How many lines can you clear?

Pick up Tetris from ShopCrackBerry.com for $3.99 >


SwooshPhotos for BlackBerrySwooshPhotos

Need a tool to help you organize and find photos on your Berry? SwooshPhotos lets you quickly and easily navigate through your photos. It will search your Berry for all images and display them to you. Create albums, zoom, pan, watch slide shows and more. View your images in 6 different thumbnail sizes for optimal browsing. If you take a lot of photos, or simply have a lot of images on your Berry, you might want to give this one a shot.

Updated BlackBerry Software

BBNotePad for BlackBerryBBNotePad 1.1.0

The developer of BBNotePad has released the final version of the app on BlackBerryForums. BBNotePad is a free text file editor and creator for your BlackBerry. Save, edit or create text files on your SD card or built-in memory.

For full installation and download instructions, go here.


Windows Live Messenger for BlackBerryWindows Live Messenger 2.1.36

Windows Live Messenger has gone to version 2.1.36. This version is an update from 2.1.32 that was available last month. As far as I can tell there aren't many updates in this version (probably just a lot of small bug tweaks/fixes), but do be sure to let me know if you spot any clear cut updates.

You can get the new version at http://www.blackberry.com/livemessenger/


PocketMacPocketMac 4.1.25

Mac/BlackBerry users will want to update their PocketMac. It has gone to version 4.1.25. The new version has built-in support for syncing photos from iPhone and MP3 music from iTunes. Entourage 2008 and LotusNotes 7 support is also now available. One last cool feature in the new version is you can now sync notes with the native OS X Mail app.

You can get the latest version of PocketMac here.


CrazySoft Paintball 2 for BlackBerryCrazySoft Paintball 2 v1.1

Woohoo! Lets play some paintball! Building on the success of the first version, CrazySoft Paintball 2 has gone to version 1.1. This game features millions of colors, sounds, 5 different game modes and more. If you're looking for a challenging and fun game with crystal clear graphics then you might want to give CrazySoft Paintball 2 a try!

Get CrazySoft Paintball 2 for $16.95 at ShopCrackBerry.com >

Golf addicts will love this one. Plusmo has released PGA Tour Tracker for the BlackBerry. This handy little app lets you keep track of scoring, providing you with up-to-the-minute results. You can view past results, player histories, bios and all the latest news from the golf world.

tiggit Mailtiggit Mail

Ever want to access personal emails while on the company Berry? Or do you simply want to avoid costly BlackBerry plans? If you do, you might want to give tiggit Mail a try. You can use it to access all of your internet email accounts from any Berry, personal or corporate. Grab your push email from Google Mail or any other internet mail service that supports IMAP IDLE. What's cool about it is you can add your personal mails to your work BlackBerry... yet keep them private.

Good morning Kevin,

I dream of the BB Thunder constantly and almost wish you would make something up about it everyday! ;D In receiving an offer on the BB Curve with Verizon to upgrade to it for free, I was so tempted - but thought of your site's current info on it and held off... we have at least 2 or 3 more months before it's available to us... please help ease the anxiety and create some sort of "crackberry therapy" section on your site for us non-celebs who won't be able to get it months in advance.
(I loathe all the celebs you keep posting about with the Bold - I really, really do!)

Kevin Michaluk

We already do! It's the CrackBerry Rehab Forum. Click the link and you're there... but come on, the torture and waiting is part of the fun!

everyone's stories are hilarious... but no, patiently waiting with my 8703e really isn't fun for me - lol!

jc

with the new update i was able to download it and login succesfully with my AT&T curve 8300.

on my Verizon 8330!!

So I downloaded and installed the new Windows Live Messenger. I don't use a hotmail email address; I use a GMAIL address. So when I try to change the Domain, it gives me this error:

"Uncaught exception: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException"

Help would be much appreciated

I upgraded worldmate and now the program just hangs/freezes on the sign-in screen. I end up looking at the “Please wait…” screen for hours. I’ve contacted support and received NO support response or any response for that matter. And I’m even one of the stupid ones that actually paid them the $100 for the gold account. No support + no access to the program = out of luck. So much for entering several of my business trips into this.

Yay! A reaonably priced version of Tetris! The free ones suck...but 14$ from Handango seemed just to expensive to satisfy my Tetris obsession. WLM seems to be signing in better...it used to take forever on my 8310 Rogers Curve, and I'd get periodic signouts...haven't had either problem yet.
