New BlackBerry Software

FlyCast for BlackBerryFlyCast for BlackBerry

FlyCast is a killer app that features over 1,000 channels of music, entertainment, news and more all for your listening pleasure. The audio feeds are streamed directly to your Berry... and the best part it... it's FREE! The interface is dead simple, once you install and give it a try, everything is fairly self-explanitory. FlyCast is available for the Bold, Storm and Curve. Pearl users will have to hold on, unfortunately there is no version for the good 'ol Pearl just yet.

You can read an excellent overview of FlyCast for the BlackBerry here. Or go ahead and check it out at http://www.flycast.fm for more info and download instructions (an OTA download link is available).


Mobile Checkbook for BlackBerryMobile Checkbook for BlackBerry

Have issues keeping track of your bank account balances? If so, you might want to give Mobile Checkbook a try! This app lets you record transactions as they happen. It's a powerful way to stay current with your accounts. Record expenses as you're shopping, at a restaurant, or wherever you make a purchase. View past transaction details such as date, time, payee, memo and check number. Two versions (for different Berry devices) of this app are now in our store. Both are available for $12.95 at ShopCrackBerry.com!


Star ContactsStar Contacts

Star Contacts is the most comprehensive address and contact management app available for the BlackBerry. You can store Home, Business and Personal information for all of your contacts. Organize them into groups, search your contacts and more. Using the app is straightforward, making it easy to edit, view and delete any sort of contact details you want. If you're searching for a powerful contact management solution, Star Contacts might be it.

SendAFix lets you request your location via email or SMS. It's an easy way to send your location to friends and family, allowing them to see where you are on their PC or mobile device. SendAFix uses GPS if available, and if not, will use cell towers to calculate your location. A cool feature of this app is you can either send your location, or have other users request your location. When a request for your location is received, you'll be notified and given the option to allow or deny. As an aside, a cool alternate use for this app? To recover a lost or stolen Berry!

If you're in a meeting or in a situation where you can't take a call, simply press the ignore button and select the message you want to send back to the caller. It's as easy as that. A new 'do not disturb' feature is also built-in to ignore all incoming calls. NotNow will integrate with your calendar app to enable or disable the 'do not disturb' feature automatically!

FakeCall for BlackBerryFakeCall

VibAndRingVibAndRing

VibAndRing is one of the most popular apps available in our store. Normally your Berry will vibrate, and once the vibration is finished your ringtone will start to play. VibAndRing lets you set the vibration alert and the ringtone alert at the same time. You can also set how long the vibration alert should last. A handy app indeed.

Mobile DeadMobileDead

Don't be scared off by the name, you might actually like this one. MobileDead is a new location-based game that is going on in New York City. All you need to do is visit www.mobiledead.com from your Berry and install the game. The app lets you interact with your environment and other users in the area while in NYC. The game has a zombie theme, and depending on where you are in the city, it will show you where you are in proximity to other 'undead' users. Explore your environment to unlock health packs and weapons, or simply meet up with a close zombie for a civilized sit-down zombie lunch :)

Tons of fun! Again, for more info visit www.mobiledead.com

Is there something similar for the other devices? ie. the curve, pearl, W.E. i dont want to bash the bold as its awesome, but since its release and the storms pending release the rest of us with older devices are being left in the dark.

if there is something like this for the curve please PM me, i am unaware of its existance

Navan

I've got this app on my curve at the moment and it rocks!

I downloaded FakeCall the last time it was featured and I could not get it to work....this time, it works perfectly!!!

I was excited to try out FlyCast but was not able to get it to work. I posted a note on FlyCast's forums and got a reply that they do use TCP/APN network and RIM will not allow them to stream through BIS. Unfortunately Centennial Wireless does not allow BB users onto their TCP/APN network. So, another great app the CW users cannot use.

Side Note: The support forum for FlyCast ROCKS! Very fast and knowledgable reply.

Does anyone know the exact date for release of this phone by Verizon Wireless? And since Vodafone is offering this phone for free, what are the chances that Verizon Wireless will do the same? Thanks.

estack

Dosen't work for the 8830 right now, maybe there'll be an upgrade?...

dragonleepy
