Enjoy hours of entertainment with a classic game of Reversi on your BlackBerry. This strategy game features an 8x8 grid. Your goal is to make your own color pieces take up the majority of spaces on the board. Do so by turning your opponents pieces over by 'sandwiching' them in between your own color pieces. Surround or 'sandwich' your opponents color, and they turn to your color! Play against a friend or a computer opponent in this fun and easy to play strategy game.
SaveNumberAs adds a simple yet powerful and handy feature to your BlackBerry... instantly add new contacts and their phone number to your address book! Normally when you receive a call you don't have in your contacts, you have to select it from the call log, click menu and then click 'add to contacts'. On top of that, the number is usually set as the 'work number', and you have to go in and edit that. SaveNumberAs takes care of all of this. The app adds its own menu item to the call log named 'Save Number As...' Cool!
Need to export your phone or mail log to a csv file? Log2File can help. Export your phone or email to a log, with numerous options. In the phone export, you can choose to export name, phone number, address type, date and duration data. For a mail export you can choose to export subject, date, from, to, cc and type data. This one requires OS 4.2 or later.
With MobileGlobe you can turn international calls into local calls! This isn't a calling card or anything like that. Simply make calls as you normally would, and MobileGlobe will save you between 30 to 90%! This is worth checking out if you make a lot of outgoing international calls... or make a lot of outgoing calls from international locations.

txtForward 1.1 now enables BlackBerry users to automatically send outbound SMS messages to an email address. The new feature enables users to archive outgoing SMS messages as well as their incoming messages as previously available.
txtForward was announced back in July to give Berry users the ability to automatically forward their text messages to any email address they specify. The software is useful when changing to a new phone, enabling the user to avoid missing messages during the transition.
LightOn is a little utility that lets you control the backlight on your Berry. Add an application name to LightOn and adjust the settings. You can have the backlight go on for any app of your choice, and you can also set the brightness level. The latest version now includes a built-in 'flashlight' function. If you're ever stuck in the dark without a light... But you have your Berry at your side... This will come in handy!
