GPS Trackdown for BlackBerry
GPS Trackdown for BlackBerry by: Rainium Research
GPS Trackdown is a social networking application that makes it easy to find and share your location.  It's a great tool to have In Case of Emergency. The Remote Trackdown feature can help you locate a lost phone or a missing person.  The Panic Trackdown feature can help you send your location history to a trusted emergency contact.  Share your location on FaceBook, Twitter, by Text or by Email.  The Remember Location feature can be used to help find your car at the mall.  Because GPS Trackdown uses local search you can get Weather, Movies, Maps and more.  Also, because GPS Trackdown can utilize GPS coordinates you can get directions to locations that don't have a registered street address.

Most importantly, GPS Trackdown fully respects your privacy.  Your personal and location information is never sent to their website.  This application was not designed to replace an in-car GPS System and it does not support voice turn by turn directions. GPS Trackdown is FREE with versions for BlackBerry 7 devices as well as those on OS 5-6.

What You Might Have Missed

eBuddy XMS

eBuddy XMS now available for BlackBerry and hoping to win you over
We know what you are thinking -- cross platform messaging clients are like a dime a dozen now a days, and with so many options, what makes this one any better? With clients like Kik, LiveProfile and WhatsApp available already, the folks at eBuddy XMS knew they had to step it up a level beyond the others and they feel they have done so very well. Features of eBuddy XMS include:

  • eBuddy is a pioneer in the mobile messaging landscape, with its instant messaging apps having seen more than 100 million unique downloads to date
  • eBuddy has the experience and know how to deliver a reliable messaging service, exemplified by the more than 17 billion messages it processes every month
  • Since its launch (late May), eBuddy XMS has seen a great reception, currently being in the top 20 in 27 countries (social networking category - iOS)
  • eBuddy has also developed Web XMS, an exclusive web-based companion app that allows you to manage all your XMS messages through the comfort of your computer.

Knowing that not everyone can be tied to their mobile device at all times, or folks at the computer don't always want to pick up their device to respond to a message, having a web-based companion is a huge help that definitely sets it apart. Unfortunately eBuddy XMS is not available through AppWorld, but it is available through their site for download. More images after the break.

BlackBerry App Roundup - 25 copies of Weather Plus by MMMOOO to give away!



Oh how I would love to have a reputable weather app for my phone. I hope they choose me! We shall wait & see!

Hello CB, I just Love this app. I am using a FREE version, please give it to me the PRO version. I have purchsed many app CB store. Waiting to see an email from you guys with link to download this pro app. ;-)

BB Pin: 23B0B58F
Mumbai, India.

Would love to get a copy of this app have been looking for a good weather app for my new BB7 Torch 9850!

Been trying out a few weather apps, and I think this one might be the best of all. Hope I can win it.

This is one thing I miss coming back to BlackBerry from Android. HTC really loves weather and their device software shows that. I woild love sporting this on my new Blackberry.

Currently using the free version, but would LOVE to win a copy of the paid version!! Thanks for the contest, CrackBerry!!!

Love to win this one...I'm without an app, sure do miss having a weather app to check my weather each morning lol...Gr8 giveaway! :)

I'd love it, because BeWeather guys are so slow on the uptake to upgrade their app to OS7 for some reason. And I just can't live without it. Hope, it'll be a decent substitute!

Can i please HAZ Weather? I swear the only people who win are crackberry elite's. Why not share the love? I passed out 15 BBM Music Invites! That has to be worth a look at. I support CB Nation all the way. I even gave ATT Shit for not having the 9900. Whats up?

I would love the app. I miss good weather for this phone, and this app seems to do what exactly I want. If I get it, I'll definitely spread the word to all my BBM contacts.

I have tried so many weather apps. Now more than ever 'cause I'm not working and don't have TV access to see the weather. =^.^=
This weather app appears to be the best so far. Just like watching my fave meteorologist on TV!! =^.^= =^.^=

Really hope that it doesnt rain for me, my new Bold 9900 desperately needs to see the sunshine. Thumbs up to Crackberry for offering this awesome looking weather app for the Blackberry. Fingers crossed that I might win a copy!


I would love to win a copy of this one! Push weather to homescreen should be just great! Thanks for the contest.

In my line of work a good weather app is essential! Weather Plus by MMMOOO would be a great app to have.

New BB owner 1st contest I've ever enter on this site. I would love to get a FREE copy of Weather Plus by MMMOOO. Please pick me! Thanks

They sometimes only give you temps but others will alert to storms and gives highs, lows and a lot more.pick me and I will use it daily!

How about a free copy of the Skeletel Theme? I keep trying to buy it from BB App World but the Purchase button won't work for me. I have an 8520 curve with OS 5 and used it on another phone (same model & OS).

it would be real nice to finally use a weather app that doesn't kill my phone. This one looks like a winner!

BEver since the weather network changed its app I've been running my 9900 without any weather app...I think its time MMMOOO filled in that void in my life :)

Ya got to pick me! I've been using the trial Weather Plus forever! (got to have that push to home screen feature!!!!)

Just came back to blackberry after a year and I've been looking for a good weather app. This could be it!

ive been looking for a weather app and i did win snappy a few weeks ago from you guys but i never got it :( this weather app would make everything soooooo much better between us lol please hook me up!! thx crackberry rocks!!!

WEATHER PLUS would help my Torch 9850 keep me safe this winter. I would GREATLY appreciate it as I don't want to drive into a blizzard like I did last winter! Thank you!

Son's a meteorologist and says that I need to update my weather app. I would love this one. Thanks Crackberry :)

Count me in! I JUST switched from Windows Mobile this week to my first Blackberry and I can ALWAYS use a great app!!!

Gees its raining here, I had to look outside, my phone needs a app like this. I wouldnt have to get out of bed! Hee Hee!

Just picked up the 9900 Bold. It would be nice to have a shiny new Weather Plus widget app installed. It looks slick.

I would absolutely love it if I can get a copy of this amazing app, I use my blackberry day and night and I'm always looking for a great app to check the weather, I cannot tell you how much I would appreciate it if u can give me a copy. Thank you crackberry for all your help over the years. -Jonathan

I've yet to experience winning something! Aside from that, perfect timing for this contest as I need a great weather app!

It would be a great help to me. I am in ham radio and a storm spotter and assist the National Weather Service. Any tool I can get gives me an additional advantage

Can I please have a copy? I'm new here so getting this free will motivate me to shop here.
Thanks in advance

Me would love MMMOOO....especially since PocketDay Pro no longer has this as a working function...

Please consider me for a copy of this weather app! I have been looking for a good weather app for my Torch 9800 and the ones I have tried so far have not been satisfactory. Thank you!

Yay! How cool! I love this app that I won!
Well, lets test it, mmmm, yesterday it was a sunny day... WOW! It's right!
Let's see todayy... Mmmm 100% probabilty of... FLOODD!!?? Nah, it must be wron~
*glub*glub*glub* x_x ♒♒♒♒

...because I use it several times daily. I've used the lite version before & would like to have this one. Thanks

I need a new weather app, and I've been trying really hard to not purchase berryweather, this would save me!

With the quick change in weather this time of year this would work great on my Bold. Have yet to find one that I like and this sounds like the one to have.
Thanks for the Contest !!!!
