Lady Gaga Needs a BlackBerry 9630

Lady Gaga Needs a BlackBerry 9630

It's been a while since we've run an actual celebrity in one of our CrackBerry Sightings posts, but when I saw this picture of Lady Gaga walking out of Dolce & Gabbana I thought it would be good for a few comments from the guys and gals in the audience. As much as I love the BlackBerry 8830, I can't help but think Lady Gaga needs a slightly more sleek, updated BlackBerry to go with...

StormSlider - iPhone Style Lock/Unlock for Blackberry Storm

StormSlider - iPhone Style Lock/Unlock for Blackberry Storm

First off yes, I do like having an iPhone feature on my Blackberry. Secondly, no - my next step is not to use a theme with iPhone icons. That being said, check out StormSlider. This application is a must buy in my opinion. It adds awesome functionality to the native lock function on the Storm, allowing you to swipe to unlock the screen. I was using the original free version and had some gripes...

WES 2009 - BoxTone Lounge is back with Birds of a Feather

We were pretty excited last year to announce on the blogs the coming of the BoxTone Mobile User Management Lounge for WES 2008.

BlackBerry Storm Helps You Lose Weight?!

Our pal Brian sent us in the link to this latest Weight Watchers Online commercial and I just couldn't help but post... it gives some solid air time to the BlackBerry Storm and there's just something CrackBerry-esque about that cute orange Hungry Monster! The Storm was a good choice for the commercial - having used pretty much every BlackBerry I'd argue that Storm users burn more calories...

Flipside Media Player - Now On Sale!

Flipside Media Player - Now On Sale!

I've been a big fan of Flipside media player for a while now and was even part of the beta testing for it when it launched many, many moons ago. The application has improved much since then and with the BlackBerry internal media player not offering some of the functionality that Flipside can give me I often times find myself using it, more so than the native application.  With last....

Since then, this thread has received over 10,000 posts and nearly 500,000 views - that's got to be some sort of record for a BlackBerry theme. With AppleBerry for the Storm now at over 30,000 downloads,...
