BBFileScout - Review and Comparison to File Manager Pro

BBFileScout - Review and Comparison to File Manager Pro

So who can out bench press, as well as compress? Who can claim their file management kung-fu is strong? That's what I was hoping to find out. Last week, we took a look at Terra Mobility's File Manager Pro. Taking a look at some of your comments, the obvious choice would be to see how these two file management solutions compare. The big difference was cost. File Manager Pro is $11.95 and...

Elecite Releases Playstation 3 Based Theme!

Elecite Releases Playstation 3 Based Theme!

A hot new theme from Elecite strikes two chords with me mainly because it captures two things I love - video games and BlackBerry. PSB is a Playstation3-based theme which looks great and flows well on all the devices it supports. PSB is set up in a column structure with 4 icons at the top that when touched on reveal a row of four more icons going downward which allows for 20 icons in...

CTIA Wireless 2009 Special Coverage: On Location in Vegas!

In three hours I'll be boarding a plane for Las Vegas to attend CTIA Wireless 2009. Normally I'd post the traditional "Welcome to Las Vegas" graphic, but instead I thought I'd drop some of my favorite old content up here as quality filler while I'm stuck at airports and on airplanes for the better part of the day. Yesterday was a bit of a rough one for the BlackBerry Storm, seeing as how the...

BlackBerrius Maximus - Part X - Our "15 Minutes"

It was pop icon Andy Warhol who is credited as first saying that we all get "15 Minutes" of fame in this world. Now, some of us get a little more than our allotted "15 Minutes" and some of us get a little less. Very recently, my friend and colleague, (our beloved CrackBerry Kevin) met me in New York City for what turned out to be our "15 Minutes." Now, Kevin is pretty famous and has...

Skype Coming To BlackBerry In May!

Skype Coming To BlackBerry In May!

This information has been floating around for a while now, but it seems this time around we can toss the 'official' flag over it rather then just the 'rumor' one.

Come May BlackBerry users...

RandomTones For BlackBerry Storm!!

RandomTones For BlackBerry Storm!!

Here is a great application from the folks at Toysoft that caught my eye the other day mainly because of the fact it allows you to set different ringtones for specific times of the day. So say for example you are at work and you want to just have some nice basic ringtones for the possible business atmosphere you may be in, you can set it so that it will only play those tones. Then let's say...

What Do You Want For BlackBerry Applications?

We all know that the BlackBerry App World is coming at some point in time, be it April 1st or shortly there after.

Next Dual Pack - Addictive Game for BlackBerry!

The folks at Mobigloo, developer of Nintaii and Storm Level Pro, have just released a new old game for the BlackBerry. I say new old game because the original Next actually surfaced back in 2006 where it won 1st prize in a RIM-organized Game Developer Challenge. It was an instant classic with BlackBerry users of the day but it sort of fell off the radar as a ton of new BlackBerry models were...

Possessed BlackBerry Pearl!

Ok I know EDGE devices can do some weird things to other electronic devices around them, such as causing radios to crackle, interference on landline telephones and even being able tell when a text message is about to come through to your device by the sounds it causes your TV to make, but this one is just weird. Take a look at the video above... I think someone needs to call an exorcist as...
