I felt like doin' something a little bit different this week. Seeing as there must be a lot of new BlackBerry Storm users out there, I wanted to take a week to pay attention to them. I know in past weeks I've only offered a few titles for your device... So, heck, this week is your week! Lets get started:

Best Selling BlackBerry Storm Software: Aerize Email Alerts, TouchBubbles, Nintaii, PeeKaWho Email SMS Alerts, Flashlight!, Marble Trap, Mobile Bartender, Empower Work Folders

New BlackBerry Storm Software: EnglishWorld English Dictionary, AcroBible NAS, Fart Machine, TapOMania


Best Selling BlackBerry Storm Software

Aerize Email Alerts for the BlackBerry StormAerize Email Alerts

New features have been added to Aerize Email Alerts, one of our best-selling apps. Aerize previews each email you receive with the senders' picture and name, the subject of the email, and a brief preview. Very handy. Identify email quickly, improve your productivity, and do it all with easy one-click operation. Make your built-in BlackBerry email even better with Aerize Email Alerts!

TouchBubbles for the BlackBerry StormTouchBubbles

I 'touched' on this one last week, I believe. Ugh, bad joke. But seriously, if you're looking to load up your Storm with new games, TouchBubbles should be on your list. It's a simple and easy to play puzzle game, wehre you touch/pop like colored bubbles to clear the board. Sort of like the classic 'bejeweled' game. Choose from three levels of difficulty, and play with three, four or five bubble colors.

You can pick up TouchBubbles for the BlackBerry Storm for $2.99 at ShopCrackBerry.com >


Nintaii for the BlackBerry StormNintaii

To date, Nintaii is the game I'm recommending as a 'must have' for BlackBerry Storm users. This brain teaser will have you scratching your head and racking your brain like no other. Roll and rotate your block through courses, while trying to deposit the block into the hole at the end of the level. There are lots of switches, road blocks and other obstacles to overcome. If you're into puzzle games, Nintaii is a must-have.

PeeKaWho for the BlackBerry StormPeeKaWho Email SMS Alerts

Along the same lines as Aerize Email Alerts, PeeKaWho is an award winning email and SMS alert/notifier app. If you like getting email notifications like the ones you get in Outlook or Gtalk Notifier (via Growl on the Mac), then you'll love PeeKaWho. See instantly who is email you, a brief preview of the message body, and more. There's also a built-in whitelist and blacklist feature to help you block spam and other unwanted messages.

Flashlight! for the BlackBerry PearlFlashlight!

You can pretty much guess what this one does, huh? That's right, with the Flashlight app you can use your BlackBerry Storm as an emergency light source for those times when you need a flashlight... but don't have one. Choose from five vivid colors to light your way. The app will run for 30 minutes, and even turns on your LED for that little bit of extra light.

Marble Trap for the BlackBerry StormMarble Trap

In this very cool puzzle game, use the Storm's built-in accelerometer to roll your marble through the maze. Escape traps and navigate the marble to the end of the level while avoiding traps and obstacles. There are 64 different levels in the game. Test your patience, your skill, and reaction time with this one-of-a-kind puzzle game for the Storm.

Fart Machine for the BlackBerry StormFart Machine

Ughh... I'm almost upset with myself that I'm reporting this. 'Fart' apps seem to have taken off for the iPhone, and I grudgingly had to note this as the first ever 'Fart' app for the BlackBerry. Good grief. Well, the app is simple. It contains a timer so that you can set your Storm down somewhere and use it as a prank. Set a delay of 30 seconds or a minute and have some fun.. Or choose 'Random Fart' and let the machine do its thing.

TapOMania for the BlackBerry StormTapOMania

TapOMania is much like TouchBubbles that I covered earlier in the roundup. Remove all of the blocks from the screen by touching/tapping on them. As you remove blocks, other blocks fall down to fill the space, creating some interesting scenarios and strategy to think about as you play. Also watch out for bombs, lasers and non-selectable blocks. Choose from three different difficulty levels, start at any level you wish, and save your high scores within the game!

Terrigno

Will the Mobile checkbook program ever be availible for the Storm?

neevz

Nice gettin' some Storm love!! Thanks James

James Falconer

You're very welcome!

Would anyone else out there be interested in some more device-specific roundups?

graymulligan

I've been really keeping my eyes peeled for storm stuff, and I missed a couple of these. Nice write up!

gnr-met

I thought someone said that the accelerometer wasn't working well with this game? Has anyone else tried this?

JGnarley

I bought Nintaii and haven't had a single problem with accelerometer, works great in my opinion

Tony Priore

Are the ring tones offered on Crackberry able to be applied to the BB Storm?

jharo

I tried the free trial of this, and it worked fine.

jodyberry

Still seems to be issues with Mobile Bartender. Scrolling and clicking is funky!

mobatech

An update is available for Mobile Bartender that resolves prior scrolling issues on the Storm. If you downloaded Mobile Bartender before the update went live, please e-mail support@mobatech.com and we'll send over the latest version immediately.

shaydakiss23

Getting my Blackberry Storm when im able to upgrade on Jan.29th. Been waiting for this thing since I first heard about it back in October. CAN'T WAIT!

Anonymous

anyone else dl the fart app. i did and it doesnt seen to work at all. farts ARE funny but only if you can hear 'em

BB_Storm4me

Is this all there is? Pretty sad. Come on developers...what's taking so long? Is that hard to port over applications to the Storm?

TommyDaGip

Im new to the site and a first time BB user. But ive been trolling the internet and really cant seem to find any apps that really caught my eye or peeked my interest. Im finding it especially hard to locate any themes for the Storm :(. Is it really that hard to make themes for this wonderful phone?

zamar1

I'm surprised we are stooping to the level of fart apps. I really thought that was for the children with iPhones.

Ugh.

denniswking

its my understand this is the only thema avaliable right now! the 1 u got in the box

ddarvish

cool set of progs but would really love a roundup of free blackberry software. i really hope devs step up and create great free teaser programs. this would make me feel more comfrtable to pay for progs if i know they will be quality.... free trials on progs also never hurt!

moosc

when will we really see Apps for storm? as with many apps ive down loaded along with fart one they only use half the screen like a bold or curve screen with the key board underneath and you cant close out the key board? any ideas just a couple months to go and well see what happens with the app store..

Anonymous

To get around this, Go to Setup --> Advanced Options --> Applications

Then highlight the program and hit the menu button then click on DISABLE COMPATIBILITY MODE

All done!

mikef1182

Thanks for the Storm specific round up! Its great seeing some app attention in the Storm's direction!

cwperdomo1

thank you for the great apps

sallyboi

any word on when some themes will be released for the storm???

rxrimmer

Could not install it "correctly". Not worth the $5.00 of aggravation.

CCBBStorm

Any word on when the iBerry theme will be avail for the storm?
