Breeders Cup Horse RacingBreeders Cup Horse Racing

Racing fans, it's time to get your 'bet' on with Breeders Cup Horse Racing. The game is brand new for 2008. Experience high-stakes wagering in this game licensed from the world's top horse racing event. Place wagers, evaluate horses, earn items, and a whole lot more. My only advice: Don't bet on 'Big Brown'.

Spider for BlackBerrySpider

Attention spider solitaire fans... The aptly named 'Spider' has landed at ShopCrackBerry.com for card game lovers. In Spider you get to play one of the best-known two-deck solitaires. It's extremely difficult to win, which is probably why it is so popular amongst 'hardcore' solitaire fans. The game features 3 game times, 2 keyboard navigation types, unlimited undos, and a whole lot more.

AudioBay Podcast PlayerAudioBay Podcast Player

AudioBay Podcast Player is a handy app that makes it easy to find, download and listen to podcasts. It includes an integrated MP3 player, an integrated search by location, and much more. An important note about this software however... Large downloads will often require a direct TCP connection and may cost you some extra $$$ in data charges. Just a heads up here. A memory card is a must have for this one.

Google Maps 2.2.2 for BlackBerryGoogle Maps 2.2.2

Google Maps has gone to version 2.2.2 for the Berry. It's still early days as this has just been released... no word yet on what features are added, or which bugs have been fixed... But no doubt there has got to be a few new things in there!

your link downloaded the update but it wouldnt load on bberry via app loader. gmm site still has 2.2.0:( guess im deemed to wait:(.

cobra302

i tried the double twist. i didnt like it and unistalled. i had to create a log in just to open the program, and it seems more designed to share media with applications like facebook and the like. it did remove drm it seemed from some songs, but there were only certain ones it seemed to recognize. i had lots of songs that the program wouldnt "find". all in all, i just didnt like having to log into a progam that i have installed on my computer.

This is so far, the only app I've purchased for my Curve. I definitely like this for keeping track of all my vehicle stuff and how much of my money I'm sinking into it. I can even go back and tell you that I spent $533 last month replacing stuff on my car!

Also will be cool for business folks, you can extract the information with a single click to be emailed to you in a spreadsheet format!

Moe_Tuck

New! Transit directions on your phone

KhaosGT

Thank you! I was having errors with the original link, but this is just perfect =D

MarieKCox

Worst game ever! Don't buy it. I did and it won't load on my Curve (8330). All I get is the hourglass turning and then it freezes up. I've tried to get my money back from CrackBerry, but they won't return it (even when the game designer asked them to return my money)!

babegirlbanks

if you type m.google.com/maps in your bb browser it will take you to the page were you can install the new version.

r3g

Is it better/faster than Roxio?

Runell A

I downloaded the free trial to give it a go, everytime the full screen image loads, it freezes up my Curve(8330) if it gets passed the initial call, it will freeze my curve after I miss the call.

mikells43
