Cartoon fan? Want to be entertained on your BlackBerry daily with a new episode? Then you'll want to check out Bludzee! You can read the full press release below, but the quick overview is that Bludzee, the cartoon kitten created by Lewis Trondheim, is now available for BlackBerry Smartphones. A one year subscription to the comic strip costs $9.99, giving you access to a new episode each day (plus you can go back and see ones you have missed that were out prior to your purchase). The app was developed by Aquafadas, and is pretty innovative in both the concept and its gui design. The app was actually a finalist in the 2009 Innovation Awards Entertainment on BlackBerry category. Perhaps the coolest aspect of Bludzee is the localization factor, with it being available in 19 languages! You can learn more and download via the App World link below. Note, according to the press release it's currently only available for the Curve 8900, Bold 9000 and Storm 9500, though I ran it on both my Storm2 and 9700 without issue previously.
