Vuvuzela for BlackBerry

* Update - FIXED. Got a new OTA link from the guys... should work better now for downloading! *

If you've been watching the World Cup, you most certainly noticed the vuvuzelas blowing away in the background. If you haven't been watching the World Cup, your ears thank you. The vuvuzela is basically just a long stadium horn used by fans to cheer on their respective teams. They blow the horns for the entire length of the match, and although annoying at first, you really do get used to hearing them after a while.

If you can't make it to South Africa to get in on the fun, you can bring the vuvuzela with you wherever you go with Vuvuzela for BlackBerry. The app is the epitome of simple - start/stop and volume. If you're at a sporting event (think kids baseball game) bust this app out and see how the crowd reacts. It gets super annoying after about 10 seconds, so use at your own risk. Download free OTA (OS 4.3+) from the link below.

Thank God the OTA doesn't work.

miloszz

Crackberry users killed ota?

whizzard

I already find it so annoying watching a match with that sound, now to hear it live :(

w_bovine

This is just evil...pure evil. What have we done to deserve this?

lauramunaf

Hahahaha perfect app for watching worldcup, the sound from soccer fan frenzy's volume is too low

kilted thrower

I can't wait for those stupid things to get banned. Right now there's a huge push to get them banned.

BBMaverick

It's a part of South African culture. If they wanted it European-style, they shouldn't have had the World Cup in Johannesburg.

With that said, I'm going to download this app and annoy a couple of my buddies. Hahaha

I don´t think so...
This type of plastic horn or trumpet has been used in Mexican stadiums since the 1970s. Originally made out of tin, the vuvuzela became popular in South Africa in the 1990s.

stubbornswiss

I think it might just be overloaded right now.

Everyone complains about these things, but yet everyone wants to download the app.

LOL!!

skizuhm

we killed the link! Need another STAT! ;-)

Pathtek4

Link down? Can't get OTA :( :( :(+

estrickle

This is a bad idea. People will think you are a pain in the you know what if you use it. and it would be a waste of memory space for no other reason than to be annoying to all.

corsa-ash

who can get it to work for me?

2179A3C0

lool it jst good 2 annoy ppl go in2 clubs/pubs playin it lool

2179A3C0

robbykennedyh

I downloaded the APP to my computer and can't install using DM. How do I install it in my BB Tour ???

jasonvw

Copy it to the mem card or device storage, then go to file manager and run it there. See if that works. If it does, upload the jad somewhere so the rest of us can start annoying the hell out of people at work. :)

asianguy80

my gf is going to kill me. she already can't stand the sound when we're watching the games...lol who am I kidding this is great...if I could get the link working lol

jasonvw

Yah link is down. Booo urns.

bcpalma

Everyone back out for a moment so I can download.

It was worth a shot. I will try the OTA later today after the rush.

InpherKnow

ota link is broken! Can you add this to the store?

Pilot Prop

I absolutely HATE this noise, but I still tried to download it....for some reason I can't get it

robinsonsam89

I can get the JAD file from my PC and transfer to the device, but i cannot get the installer to download the app.
Can this be addded to the CB store or can someone host the .COD file if possible?

Huisman7

I have the same thing. Got in on my bb, opened it which asked for it to download, and then it fails.

How/where can i upload them?

robbykennedyh

I have the same thing... I finally got in my BB tried to download it but it won't, I get "Download Failed" 907 Invalid COD Connection Timed Out.

jlb21

Oh I soooooo need this. My daughter's U12 soccer team starts their playoff tournament tomorrow. This would be great. My wife doesn't think so, but I do..... LOL!!!!!!

If I can't get this to DL, I may have to go back to the free cowbell from Rogers. That worked on my Tour and was just as annoy......er.....fun!

causbrite

Got the jad put won't install

startrak140

hopefully a resolution will come after the game

jlb21

I went here:

http://www.miblackberry.com/2010/06/17/vuvuzela-for-blackberry.html

And they linked to the same jad file. I was able to DL it to my BB. I cannot access hosting sites so I guess I will go create a thread in the Apps section and attach it there......

Here's my thread.....

This will be so much fun if I can ever download it!!!

korp#IM

Haha nice app .... that buzzing sound is sooooo annooying.

raelssur

tried to download several times on my storm and it keeps timing out

lcfut

i am using Google Chrome to d/l the COD files now.
the hosting site in the JAD file is extremly slow - 25 minutes for 1 file!!!!
once they are all collected, edit the JAD file to show just the file name and load it onto your device for local installation.

Huisman7

Has anyone actually got this to work?? If so, how??

Jake Storm

This is just the type of app I would expect to see on the iphone.

corsa-ash

it is.. shame it doesnt work on this

bigsammoe

mychlan

I am able to get that JAD...but once I run the install is when it fails...

chubbrock

yeah after installing we get an error when trying to run it... damn it!!!

Grndlvl

Just got it downloaded. Wow, is that annoying.

Brandon 8ch

LOL I PLAYED IT FOR 30 SECONDS AND MY FRIEND STARTED HITTING RANDOM BUTTONS TO TURN IT OFF WHEN I HADE THE KEYBOARD LOCK ON! XD. SO JOKES!

zhafryy

Vuvuzela sounds not that loud..but still annoying

Huisman7

I download it to my PC, put it on my media card and open it from my blackberry but I'm still getting an error. Am I doing something wrong??

Huisman7

I must say though, this app is annoying me because I can't get the thing to get on my BB!! I'm supposed to be annoying other people, not myself!!

rcm1301

This is a fake. This is NOT how they sound. This is just a plain horn. But still fun!! I just wish they recorded the real thing.

Bob_B

When installing, it says there is a COD Error.

spconeyi83

Why won't someone just get a new ota link?

greatness10

can someone please help? i downloaded via the link. JAD files cannot be opened on my computer however, i have a PC. I tried copying it to my media card....nothing.

what am i doing wrong?

jzamorski

It works now

And that was a priceless reaction from the co-workers!!

Can't wait to use it at home.

But yeah it gets really annoying after like 30 seconds.

shacknews

Awesome man, pure awesome. I'm gonna hook this up to s speaker system in the house and have play none stop during party.

huasamaya

New OTA link works,thanks guys, now to anoy the hell out my co-workers.

Huisman7

Why?? Why I ask you!!!

Blkbear

Release an app, offer it for free, and mention that it will annoy others. Bingo your app might hit a million hit by lunch time. Well, if the download links work that is... hehehhe

rlmesq

I thought it was a private part of female anatomy.

kb2755

Who the hell designed the app to blast right away when you click to open it?
Needless to say, my co-workers weren't too happy and neither was I >:(

rayjr13

A configuration setting. It's a horn app. run it and you just might hear a horn.

boothead

how do i make this play out the speaker on a s2? its only playing out the handset now

superdeliman

OMG The best thing ever to come to the blackberry!!!!
For everyone that does not like the Vuvuzela, you guys are to be shot dead!!! You are turning into the english modern crap, a football game is no game without the Vuvuzela!!!

Pilot Prop

This Link keeps timing out...I can't download

jvictor77

New link doesn't work for me either!

djgrof

do not put things that do not work

stingzgrrl

Crud. Not working for me, either. I've been trying since 9:30 am though so I guess I can keep trying.. :P

Baseknok13

how do you install the .jad file?

always gone

this dont work nope not at all nope

dimhcs21

Why does the link STILL not work?!?!?!?!?

Iprojectit

Not working! Tried downloading the .jad to computer and sending it to phone and got the 907 cod error. I really want this thing to work!! I would turn it on at the beginning of every meeting I go into! Any other places to get one for blackberry?

B2daC

This thing was blasting the whole time at my office. L-O-V-E THIS THING! I was so happy when I finally got it to work.

T-MobileCurve

I never could get the link to work, so I downloaded Rogers' free Soccer Fan Frenzy from App world. No continuous play, so you have to keep pushing the Vuvuzela button.

The FREE Soccer Fan Frenzy App is the ultimate soccer fan app.

Make noise, cheer on your team!
"Ole, Ole, Ole"
"Gooall!!"
"Boo!"
Vuvuzela
Crowd chants

Think the referee made a bad call? You be the ref! Show a red card or call an offside.

Get into the spirit and show off your favourite team's flag.

Iprojectit

Yeah, I went that route too but it isn't very loud and only goes for a second or two. Certainly an option though.

deflep

The old and the new don't seem to work.

deflep

The old and the new don't seem to work.

nathanclayton

I've mirrored everything and modified the JAD to point to my server so hopefully it'll keep the main server from getting quite so pounded.

http://j.mp/ajBQW3 (capitalization counts)

Iprojectit

Well Done Sir and Thank You! Just downloaded and I am annoying people around me left and right, great stuff!

rlgwood

downloaded fine, but key board comes up no volume buttons or horn button. cant close key board.

KTJPSY

This is great. It's so bad, it's perfect. It's just like I'm at the game being as annoying as everyone else. Can't wait to use it in a bar. If I get beat up can't I sue the developer?

CeluGeek

I already annoyed my cat with this app. Can't wait to try it out on certain folks.

amazinglygraceless

And that argument is whether only iPhone or Android have
stupid, useless applications.

This is the very definition of both of those terms.

kc1121

Dl'd from my Curve directly from Download link posted.

mhoogasian

WTF?!?!?!?! Why won't this damn app download????

kc1121

Try going to crackberry on your phone and clicking the 'Download the OTA link' (if you haven't already)

crysis63

deleted it a minute after downloading.

cerone1970

It like failed to download on my crackberry...wonder why

Huisman7

Someone posted going to crackberry.com on your bb and clicking the link for the vuvuzela from there and KABLAMO!! Works!!

Cramp11

Crashed my Bold 9000 twice. (4.6)

Started making the annoying sound, something popped up about changing permission and it locked up.

Did a battery pull... tried again... same thing.

Bell Cowbell worked like a charm. This app is gone!

eatwelle

Dude this does not sound at all like the vuvu!!! And I know what I'm talking about I live here in Sunny South Africa!!!

anonymous945867

Oh god no, it's bad enough putting up with this awful noise on the telly. Don't degrade you Blackberry with this.

Floont

Can't wait to use it Monday to irritate my coworkers... Brilliant free app!

B9700Rules

this thing does not even sound like a vuvuzela

SC0TT

World's most annoying application...

krgronbach

Oh yeah. This works just fine- a little too well. I just downloaded for our party tomorrow where we're going to watch Brazil vs. Ivory Coast.
So it's midnight and I download it on my 9650 and listen through my headphones, to not wake the wife and kids. The app fires up at volume 100 and scares the CRAP out of me. Sounds like a car horn going off in my ear. I can't wait to break it out tomorrow!

Volcomite

could have sounded better. ah well

vazgon

My co-workers going love me tomorrow...lol

YzeOne

Firstly the vuvuzela is not part of our culture as stated above. It is a piece of plastic that soccer supporters blow it is hardly been around for more than 5 or so years in the spotlight.

Secondly the vuvuzela sound in this app is DEFINITELY not a vuvuzela - someone just band-wagoning. It's definitely FAKE

codytiger5

hahaha i downloaded this just for american sporting events. ive been using it for atlanta braves games
