As always, it's been another busy week here at CrackBerry.com. Lots of new apps and themes to talk about today... Some available in our software store, others out and about on the web! Lets get right down to it!
Major League Baseball Widgets for BlackBerry
Baseball season is upon us. If you're a big baseball fan you're going to want to install this on your Berry. The new Major League Baseball Widgets for BlackBerry allow you to follow all major league teams in real-time, on your Berry.
Installation is easy. You can install OTA from your BlackBerry... Simply go to http://wap.mlb.com/blackberry. You can choose from the general MLB.com widget, or install the widget for your favorite team.
From Electric Pocket (makres of FlipSide Music Player and Ringo Ringtone Manager) comes FindMe. It's a free app you can install on your Berry that lets you 'tag' your location. No GPS is required as the application uses cellphone towers to pinpoint your device much like Google Maps' My Location. Once your location is mapped you can share it with your friends on Facebook. In fact, if you keep tagging your location, your Facebook friends will know where you are at all times :) (move over 'big brother', FACEBOOK is now watching you!)
At any rate, the pre-beta is now complete and ready for more beta testers. Try it out, and let us know what you think!
Real World BlackBerry Theme
Enhance your Berry with a new Theme. It's full of new, fun icons that you will enjoy if you're tired of the same old default things installed on your device. Designed by professional designers, it is one of the best new themes added to our collection in-store.
Jott is an application that allows you to reply to emails on your BlackBerry using your voice! You can reply by speaking into your Berry, or by using a Bluetooth headset device. It is seemlessly integrated into your email app, and claims to be 3 to 5 times faster than typing out replies the 'old fashioned' way :)
Jott is currently in limited Free Beta. You can download Jott OTA by visiting www.jott.com/bb from your Berry.
If you're a compulsive driver/texter than I highly recommend you get this app for safety's sake!
This latest version supports custom radio stations, bluetooth and wifi! With BerryTunes you can turn your Berry into a portable sound machine! Transfer MP3 files via USB and listen them through the speaker on your Berry. The BerryTunes browser allows you to easily select MP3 files you want to send to your device. You can even preview songs in the browser before you transfer them!
You can also listen to over 100 streaming internet radio stations with BerryTunes 2.2. Choose from 20 categories, including Rock, Pop,
Classical, Jazz, News and more.
The list of features goes on and on... read the complete list here.
The BlackBerry beta version 6 of MobiPocket eBook reader is now out of beta. Some are reporting problems with the upgrade. If you're happy with your current version, might be best to stick with it as-is. However, if you've just absoulutely got to have the latest version, then go ahead and pick it up OTA at http://m.mobipocket.com :)
Good news for Viigo users. Last Saturday Viigo completed their planned server upgrade. The growth they are experiencing demands that they continue to upgrade and expand! Good on 'em! With the upgrade complete, things are moving along just great at Viigo.
BerryDialer is an app that lets you use calling cards on your BlackBerry. If you're making a lot of IDD calls this can save you a ton of cash. The current version (1.4) is rumored to have an update coming in the very near future. Look for it coming soon!
Until Next Week..
