Yahoo! Mobile Beta BlackBerry App Dead

Yahoo! Mobile Beta BlackBerry App Dead

Yahoo has made a weird decision regarding their mobile application, pretty much two and a half months after their big announcement of its existence. At this time Yahoo! Mobile (which is basically a revamped version of Yahoo! Go) will not be seeing a launch on BlackBerry devices or any other smartphone for that matter. The following email was sent to users who had signed up to be notified...

It's been a while since we've had a community review from CrackBerry member JReel, but he's back today with a first look at the Seidio Innocase 360.

ShopCrackBerry is already shipping the Innocase 360 for the Curve 8900 and should have it in stock for the Bold...

US Cellular Offering Battery Swaps For Free

US Cellular Offering Battery Swaps For Free

A rather interesting service is being offered up to US Cellular customers - something that stands out to me as well I'm sure to others as being a sign of great customer service. US Cellular has announced that if you purchased your device in the last 18 months and you happen to be suffering from a dead battery while on the go, you can swing by any US Cellular shop and swap your dead one for a...

WES2009: Protect your BlackBerry with SmrtGuard

When we dropped word of SmrtGuard in the CrackBerry blogs back in March, thousands of CrackBerry readers signed up to give it a go via their public beta. With such a huge response, it was nice to meet up with the team behind SmrtGuard at WES 2009 and learn first hand more about their solution and to witness some of the behind the scenes excitement that has been going on in their world....

Stitcher Launched In App World

Stitcher Launched In App World

An interesting app popped up in BlackBerry App World the other day. Stitcher from what I can gather is a nice media/podcast player. It is currently available for AT&T and T-Mobile customers on either BlackBerry Bold or Curve devices (with a definite yes from the company that other devices will indeed be supported soon). Features: Listen - Stream the best podcasts, radio shows and...

Do You Want RIM To Develop A Twitter App?

Do You Want RIM To Develop A Twitter App?

RIM has done quite well with some of its internal applications as of late. Sure they kind of screwed delayed the launch of Facebook 1.5 but now that is here and all the bugs have for the most part been worked out, most users seem overall happy with the application. They have also done a great job with the IM clients. Albeit not perfect solutions all around, lets be honest, some of the RIM in-...

Free Anagram Application For BlackBerry!

Free Anagram Application For BlackBerry!

While at WES we all got a look at Gwabbit, an application that scans your emails for contact information, and then gives you the option to add that information to your contacts list. The good folks over at BerryReview have spotted a similar free application called Anagram. Anagram works under the same premise as Gwabbit where it allows you too "capture" contact information as well as...

Verizon Upcoming BlackBerry Comparison Chart

Verizon Upcoming BlackBerry Comparison Chart

The Boy Genius Report got their hands on another piece of Verizon goodness.  It's a shot of a comparison chart that shows Big Red's BlackBerry lineup.  Sadly there is no Tour or Storm 2 listed, but the Pearl Flip 8230 is pictured as "coming soon".  We're also not sure how old this is - could be a week, a month, or more.  One of BGR's sources dropped some cool notes about upcoming devices as...

This time around Hutchinson has launched 4.6.1.231 for the BlackBerry Curve 8900. With this being an official update you may want to have a look and see what it...

Blackberry Pearl Flip Coming Soon To Cellular South

Blackberry Pearl Flip Coming Soon To Cellular South

This image just popped up on Cellular South's site.  Looks like they are following in the footsteps of Alltel and Virgin Mobile and will have the Pearl Flip 8230 fairly soon.  From the looks of it, they'll have the device in both black and pink. Nothing else is new device wise, but at least it's another BlackBerry option for all the Cellular South subscribers out there.

We covered the intial launch of the I Love BlackBerry application and within that time over 10,000 BlackBerry users have downloaded and installed the incredible application and that was only within the first 24 hours of launch.

BlackBerry Tour 9630 Pops Up In Verizon's System

BlackBerry Tour 9630 Pops Up In Verizon's System

  PhoneArena.com snagged this image of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 listed in Verizon's internal system.  It doesn't give us much information, but it is definitely a step in the right direction for CDMA users and it's a solid piece of "visual evidence" that the 9630 will be called the Tour, in case you were still believing otherwise. It beats the 9630 SKU that showed up in the Telus system that'...

Oh ya, while you are at it grab a copy of CrackBerry:...

Wrath: Retro Shooter Game for the BlackBerry Storm

Wrath is the first BlackBerry app by Lone Dwarf Games and I have a feeling there's going to be a LOT of Storm owners out there who pick this one up for their device. It's an old school shooter game and it's a lot of fun. Wrath makes use of the Storm's accelerometer and the flying action is smooth. You can get power ups and different guns, kill some drones and fight some bosses. Definitely a...
