Contest: 50 FREE Copies of MeterBerry for the Storm!



This would be an awesome app to know my memory usage since I'm a noob to the BB world and am always looking everywhere to be able to check my memory.

Wish i could win something, ill use this to check on my storm status...and c if there r ne battery drainage

Well, I'm just posting because I wanna win one of those 50 apps... I'm not really sure what am I going to do with it... Anyway, regards, it's a great site!!!!

i love the idea of being able to keep a close eye on what is going on with my phone, with the program i plan to utilize the alerts when the memeory gets low so i can avoid the dreadful hourglass.....

What a great idea. not only do you get all the usual info, but getting stuff like the battery usage, and being able to work out whether you can leave all those data services running all night until you get home to the charger; Genius!

This is a really good idea for a utility . . . and something all handheld devices should have!

I plan to check on the temperatures of my BlackBerry and see if my battery is up to snuff.

A version of this app would be great for me!

Thanks for being so great, CB!


I really want to use MeterBerry simply to keep track of phone and figure out anything is out of the ordinary and stop it before hand

This would be nice to use to figure what Theme is the biggest resource stealer along with some of the other programs we use.

I plan on using this meterberry for a whole lot of stuff. I would like to see how all of the application that i download mess up my phone and also how each theme that i download consumes memory. This way i can maybe find a theme that i could run all the time and not have to reset the phone. Also if i ever run in to a problem with it freezing which i am pretty sure that i will it will be a lot easier to do a restart but will still have to wait the 5 minutes that the phone takes to turn on. This is a very benificial program i feel and i think that i would enjoy it even more if it was free. Hopefully i win one of the fifty as i am on here way to much at work and have even gotten my boss hooked on it. This place is a great place to learn anything and everything that you would want to know about blackberrys.

I'm always low on memory in my Storm. Would love to win this so that I would keep a handle on my Storm's memory..

I have myboxtone insight, but i just got a storm so that wont work. i check my free memoery constantly and would love to have this!

i am going to try and get the optimum amount of battery life out of my phone everyday at school i have to bring my chager breacuae within the first couple of hours my phone is dead and it is very frustrating i need some serious help with this problem haha

I am glad that this app has come out. With my old ipaq there was a program very similiar to this and i used it everyday. Can't wait to try this one out.

I want this so I know what in the world it is that slows down my phone! The battery temp indicator is pretty cool too..

I'll use this as a way to micro manage my current memory. I download a lot of attachments due to the nature of my business, so see how much I have left is vital. And the battery meter would be a plus also.

Oh please, pick me! pick me!

This sounds like a awesome utility and I would love a copy!

Thank you CrackBerry God!

I would greatly enjoy winning! I have a memory leak, and I have no idea where it's from. MeterBerry would greatly help me fix my problem!

Looks like a pretty slick piece of software. I pretty much stopped worrying about checking my memory since it didn't make much of a difference to my in the grand scheme of things but this might be able to give a bit more of an in depth view.

I am about to LOSe my marbles here. Any assistance to help keep me off of Prozac and pain-kllrs would be a plus. Please allow me a freebie and I will do my best to keep either on or off of my meds. :) Thank you for the consideration. Crackalac

I am constantly pressing the battery picture and have to remember that it does nothing lol. my phone seems to run out of battery very fast and I never know how much time I have left or if I should charge it.

this application sounds sweet! It could totally tell me if I am running something wrong on my phone. I should look into seeing how I can save my battery life. eek.......... anyway
Puh Puh Pweez, with a cherry on top! Pick me ;o)


Ok, so I am one that has to have a GREAT reason for BUYING an app, and frankly, this is one that I might use enough to do so. Of course, if I can get a freebie from the CB, I wouldn't have to!!!

I think my Storm has behaved wonderfully compared to many of the experiences that most people have had, but dang if I don't have apps that mess with this thing and drain its little brain... Would love to track them and make it better!

This app is awesome!! I hate when my storm freezes due to overloads. this app is a wonderful help to monitor my device and get rid of unnecessary apps to make room for the great ones!!!

That is fantastic app for debugging and improving this device.
would love to put it the work on my Berry

Brilliant! I've had my eye on this app since it was featured. You nan never know too much when it comes to how your device is performing.

Looking to get this app due to the constant rush to update, I would love to post memory findings from the different betas and official releases and not to mention have my one stop shop for monitoring memory, rebooting the device, and just see how efficient my storm really is! Thanks for creating such a great app!

I've always been so curious about my memory usage. Looks like this would solve all the problems!! Crackberry is awesome!!

I would love you own such a useful program, I would try to find a memory leak that I'm currently running into with my blackberry storm.

I would love to win a copy of meterberry i need to know where all my memory goes and my battery hope it will help


I want it, I NEEEED it, I'd really, really like to win it.

Please pick a newbie like me!!


I would like to use Meterberry to find a memory leak in my phone, and also keep tabs on the battery life. Some days it seems like my phone is running fine, but other days the battery dies in a few hours.

Would love this utility to manage the power of my integrated work/personal Storm to ensure I have enough power to do my work without burning up my battery with Helicopter!

i looked into this app and it would be KILLER.. i am ALWAYS looking to see how much battery life and memory i am losing throughout the day!!!

Hey baby why you callin meeee SOooo late? IT's kinda hard to talk right now... COMIN FROM THE LIPS OF AN ANGEL SAYIN MY NAME IT SOUNDS SOooOOoOO SWeEEeEeT.

I'd love to have this! Every Storm user knows, that somehow your memory just seems to seep away with use, but this can be the key to narrowing down the leak! I'm in ftw!

It's my destiny to have this program for free! :) jk

I love my Storm so much, and have used it for over 6 months as my primary device, I really need this program.

wishin i could get me some free meterberry, but i always miss out on these things somehow, oh well, fingers crossed! rocks!

Haha, thanks crackberry for the meterberry copies. I'm hoping to win a free one. I've begun using Beta operating systems and meterberry is supposed to be the best way to determine how the OS is running on your phone, because we all know that each OS works differently on each individual phone.

Meterberry is also supposed to be great for diagnosing memory leaks and battery usage caused by apps. I hope I win a copy.

I dont know about you people, but I've had my storm for about 3 weeks and I am very overwhealmed........that being said I think that this program could really help me out, all puns intended.....So Show Me the Meterberry!!!

-Memory leak... Nahh
-Battery Monitoring... Nope

... I will use MeterBerry to TAKE OVER THE WORLD (They're Pinky and the Brain, Pinky and the Brain...)

MeterBerry seems so handy for my storm, I'd use it to check my memory since I'm always downloading and deleting things, and to check up on my battery.

i'd love to have meterberry!! I'm constantly checking the stats on my device. Being able to do it all in one program and get a breakdown of the info would be awesome

I love Crackberry!! I am addicted to!!! Do I get a free copy of MeterBerry now?? Thanks!!! =)

But I think my battery is getting progressively worse as months roll along. This would be awesome to have for free, thanks!

It would be super cool to keep an eye on the apps that like to eat your battery juice.
Meterberry rocks!

i think this is a great app to have on the best phone ever the storm 9530 i would use it to find a memory leak or diagnose a failing battery. but most likely i will have to pay for the app since seems like the same people always win everything lol.


I am constantly checking the available memory on my phone, and the number is usually in the mid-high 20's. However, every once in a while I'll check it and it will barely be above 10. Hopefully, this program will help me get to the bottom of things and prevent my Storm from slowing down to a snail's pace.

This would be an awesome utility to have! I know it would come in handy cause I have needed something like this in the past.

An interesting aplication !!!!
I would love to have it in my Storm and track the way it uses its resourses....
And hopefully could contribute with my commets to improve it in a short period of time



Can anyone tell me if there is an App out there that shows how much memory and battery usage is being used? That would be great to have!

Hmm...what will I use it for? Probably just to keep an eye on things overall. Looks like a ton of useful info.

I'd love to know where the hell all my memory goes when it leaks! It doesn't seem to be on my desk anywhere...

Maybe the 13th contest entry is the lucky one?
now if someone can get a app to make apps run off the media card that would be sweet

Would be nice to be able see how much free memory you are using and what things you could do to try and free some up.

I've been considering buying this for ages, i've been having a bit of a battery problem and i think maybe i have too many apps installed, this would be really useful. plus the soft reset is a great feature :]

I will be buying this app anyway but you can save me $2.99 by giving it to me :) :)

I agree, this should be built into the OS right from the get-go. As well as a screen lock while on a phone call.

Come on RIM, get it together.....


I love how you can tell how much battery and memory is lost at certain intervals so you can keep track of whether or not you have a steady leakage or just a normal machine. This would be an awesome application to have.

I spend about 15 hours a day playing with my Storm. I would love the opportunity to run the leaks, officials, hybrids, whatevers and see how they stack up.

I have had my Storm for about 6 months. I have been geeking on it since the day I bought it (I had it less than 6 hours before I updated the OS!)

I'd be more than happy to have this app to check how my baby is performing before and after a new app is installed! It is kind of like trying out beta video drivers and then spending 6 hours benchmarking them.

I have a Storm and I hear people with 45mb of free application space. While I average about 8. I would definitely use this to find the cause. I want free space, cause sometimes my phone comes to a halt when there is no more space left.

i work for verizon and if i won this app and it enhances its performance than i would pass info of this app to all of my piers and customers purchasing the storm.
