BerryWeather Updated to 2.0.63 - Add Your Own 'Weather Slot' to Any Theme

Just a few weeks back BerryWeather 2.0 was released with a ton of new features. Among them is my favorite of being able to have the weather info display on your homescreen backgound. My only gripe was that there was no way to disable all the excess text (conditions, location, etc) and show just the icon. Well in their latest update, Bellshare has given the option to completely customize this...

Leaked: OS 5.0.0.303 For The BlackBerry Tour 9630

Well, it's been a while since the BlackBerry Tour 9630 had a leak so here it is. This has been floating around for a while now and let me just say when other devices are well into the .4xx it's probably best you skip over this one. It took this long to show up for a reason, the reports are the radio is bad in this one meaning you likely will have connection problems if loaded. Either way, I'm...

Relax and Catch Some ZZzzz's with Calmbiance for BlackBerry

Relax and Catch Some ZZzzz's with Calmbiance for BlackBerry

A few years ago when on an airport layover I picked up one of those noise making machines from a Brookestone store for $50. I actually put it to good use for a while, but somewhere along the line I misplaced it (buried in a box in my basement somewhere I'm guessing). Earlier this week I woke up at 3am one night and couldn't get back to sleep, so logically I popped open the CrackBerry App...

Did You Know Your BlackBerry Memory Card Could Repair Itself?

Did You Know Your BlackBerry Memory Card Could Repair Itself?

  A few weeks back I was playing around with my Bold 9700, and I saw an error pop up telling me my media card needed to be repaired. I had never seen this before, and wasn't sure what to do. I don't have much stored on my memory card, so I figured it was worth a shot. I clicked Ok and a few seconds later I received a confirmation message that my media card was good to go. I was happily on my...
