Browsing through some new applications today, I came across BB:Robot Scheduler from ComputerInBed.  At first I thought it was simply another multi-alarm application, but after looking at it some more I realized it actually has a ton of functionality.  The app lets you not only schedule alarms, but you can schedule a variety of common BlackBerry tasks like email, SMS, phone calls, audio...

ForceRadioOn - Keep on Truckin' When Your Battery Is Low

I'm all about apps that help fix the little things RIM won't let us change.  Bla1ze checked out LEDReset a few days ago which is a great app, and today I came across ForceRadioOn from our buddy Fabian Heuwieser.  ForceRadioOn does just was it says - it will keep the radio on your device active when you get the dreaded "Battery too low for radio use" message.  The app is very small and runs any...

WhitePages Mobile for BlackBerry Smartphones

Being a BlackBerry user and abuser, I can admit that I find myself spending nearly zero time using a Phone Book.

Now, when I say "zero time", I mean when my BlackBerry device is charging or if someone else is at the computer, so pretty much almost never. I'm sure I'm...

Now Available: HipVoice Push to Talk for BlackBerry!

Back in January we ran a post here on the blogs about an upcoming cross-carrier Push-to-Talk solution called HipVoice. By using data, rather than a single carrier's built-in PTT network, HipVoice allows for quick communication between smartphone users (or groups of users) on just about any device, any network, located almost anywhere (you'll both need that data connection). It's a...
