Bring the comic book to the real world with Blips for BlackBerry smartphones

At some point in almost everyone’s life, they probably picked up a comic book, or even watched an old Batman movie and saw the giant "BAM!!" and "POW!" pop across the screen or page. Wouldn't it be cool if you could 'entertain' your friends and family with those sound effects? Well, now you can.

Blips for BlackBerry Smartphones is an application that will help you relive those days of comic books and cheesey comic movies. Blips contains various sound effects that are matched with text on your BlackBerry. The cool part is how those sounds are triggered. They are triggered three different ways. The first is by touching the screen of touch-screen enabled BlackBerry Smartphones. The second is to click the track pad. Finally, the third is to shake your BlackBerry. Each time you do one of the trigger actions, your Smartphone will produce a different sound. Along with the sound, text will be displayed on your BlackBerry.


  •  28 different sound effects
  •  12 "Blip" sayings and 18 "Blip" background colours
  •  5,999+ combinations of words, sounds and colours!
  •  Supports Touch and Accelerometer (if you have it). Or just click the trackpad
  •  Animated "punch" screens, like the old Batman TV show!

An application like this is definitely handy for the upcoming Halloween season. Dress up like your favourite comic book character and suit up with your BlackBerry Smartphone to produce those iconic sound effects. Blips for BlackBerry Smartphones can be found in BlackBerry App World for most devices running OS 5 all the way to the latest OS 7.1. Blips is currently priced at 99 cents in BlackBerry App World.

I miss my 9850 now :( dropped it in a toilet (please, I knowwww....) Was pissed to find out sprint discontinued it, now I'm stuck with the curve9350. Still a good phone, but doesn't compare to the 9850, if for any reason than to have fun with apps like this one. Le sighhh
