Contest: 50 FREE Copies of MeterBerry for the Storm!



Free is always a good thing but in this case I REALLY want it...hope I win. Oh...and Crackberry kicks A$$!!!

Out of many applications i've downloaded and bought, i'm sure this application will be the most used app on the phone! I run many things at one time and this app will come in really handy when i'm trying to figure out which one's eating away at my memory the most! Please Give me this app!! :)

MeterBerry looks pretty darn shartp !!

I am especially interest to watch the voltage use when bluetooth is being used.

I'd love to have this app. I recently bought an extended battery and cannot figure out why I'm still charging it daily. Could be apps I guess but me being relatively new to blackberries its hard for me to diagnose the few issues I do have. Would definately appreciate the helpful app

hmm...i plan to use it for it's intended purposes, but most likely to find those infamous memory leaks. :D

This app is the one I need to really enhance and maintain my storm I really hopeI win!!!!!!!!

Just because you can't have enough applications running in the background. Hopefully it can help me find a memory own.

I plan to use MeterBerry to analyze memory and battery usage. I will compare this data when I am at work and while I am at home. I work underground and the reception is usually 1 to 0 bars. I believe this unstable and low reception is causing my battery to die sooner. I would like to compare this data to data when the reception is good (usually at home on the weekends).

I will use the memory information to keep track of memory usage spikes throughout the day. I will log the application name and log how much memory was needed to run the program and rate of time the battery level drops.

Basically, I will use MeterBerry to collect vital information regarding the memory and battery. This will help characterize the performance of my Storm.


Been waiting for such apps....!! Great stuff
Need this to check on the memory level. I'm 'riding' the Storm, so it really useful to have such apps

I obsessively check my memory at least 20 times a day. I would love a free download of meterberry. It would make it much easier.

I really could use this app as I have a very intense work day...I'm a photojournalist at a TV station.
I don't have the time to do a battery pull towards the end of the day when my storm starts to studder.
I could really use this to see what applications and times of day are reeking havoc on my poor BB!

I would like to use this so I can find a memory leak in my new BerryPelosi App. This app calls Nancy Pelosi every 7 minutes and leaves messages on her answering machine. Only problem is that right now it can only call a handful of times before freezing up.

This app would certainly help.


I would like to be able to find the memory leak that I am currently having. I woul;d love to be able to test it out. Pick Me Pick Me.

This is a great app. I have to use quick pull every few days, well that was before I upgraded OS to .113 less glitches now but it would be nice to see were my memory is going.

RIM should've had this built into the OS. Its still not too late. This is exactly what I need for my storm.
I wud loooooooooooooove to win a copy of this one. (Fingers crossed).

Me being one of the elite Black berry STORM people on here i would say that i DEF need this because i am all into MeterBerry. I could see myself using this everyday seriously! lol ..thanks for your time

The Great "Tmanstorm21"

I am looking forward to using this application so I can learn how to manage and monitor the system settings and use levels of my brand new Blackberry Storm. I am never going back to another phone.

Let me explain: most people use their phones while doing their "business". I like to take that "free time" to do my weekly battery pull. Well, let's just say that a pull went bad and the battery started to fall. Thank god for natural reactions because I moved so fast to grab the battery that the storm slipped out of my hand and landed... well, you get the picture.


I listen to a lot of streaming music while I'm at work and that drains my battery quite a bit. I can usually make it through 5-7 hours of use but sometimes it drains faster, other times it drains slower so it would be nice to have an idea of my average discharge so I know if I need to cut the tunes out or not to keep my phone running until I get home. This would definitely help me know keep a better eye on what's going on with my battery life!

I am not sure about this site. I have heard a lot of good things about it but are these apps really worth it? I would love to get a free app to see how god this site can make my new storm.

Thank you,


id use this to to test which OS is best for memory leaks. i plan on going back and installing each os and running it with meterberry for a couple of days to see which one leaks memory the most, and then report back my findings on the forum!

Just wanted to let you guys know I got this app last week and it has already paid for itself in helping me determine that the new OS (.113) I was using was causing a huge memory leak on my Storm some how and I was losing total memory in less then 2 hours. I fixed it by upgrading to .122 today now all is well. Well worth the 3 bucks!

I have no idea why im even posting, the chances of winning are slim to none.

Id like to have it because I could better monitor activity on the phone, as opposed to guessing. Due to developing applications, it would help determine where im going wrong, or going right. Simple really..

But again, its not like this post will be seen, not with 1300+ posts already. A needle in a haystack, the technohay.



for the same average amount of use during the day, my battery is never really consistent with how long it holds the charge. also, certain apps or downloads will cause memory issues and I don't know if its the individual size of the app or something with the total memory. hopefully meterberry can give some insight

This looks like a great app to have. I can't even get through an entire day before my battery goes belly up. It would be great to see what is going on with my Storm and try to pinpoint the cause. Crossing my fingers that I win a copy!

I don't know how I would use it I just like the thought of being able to take an insane piece of equipment and make it better GO BIG OR STAY HOME!!! David

With this software properly installed on my device, I will do something I have dreamed of doing my whole life: give back to my community.

I have never had the chance to "give back" to my surrounding community, but if I have this meterberry, I will have the want, nay the NEED to give back to the excellent Crackberry community by providing thoughtful responses on how programs stand up on my device. New program out, downloaded it, it hogs the memory of the device...I then report to my fellow Crackberrians.

Viva La Crackberry.

I bought my Storm on eBay and while it was in EXCELLENT condition I'm fairly certain that the battery is pretty weak. I stood in line @ Verizon the other weekend for like an hour waiting for Technical Support to help me "diagnose" the problem. All she said was that she didn't know if anything was wrong with the battery and I could just buy a new one if I thought that would help. There hasn't been any water damage to the battery because the line is still clear. But still I know there is something up with the battery because it discharges very rapidly (running .113).

Anyway, if need be for me to purchase another battery then that's what I'll do. But I would like to see if this program could give me any insight into specific statistics of my existing battery. I'd probably go for the Seidio Extended battery if I were to make the leap to a new battery.

I would love to have this app, I hate having to pull off my sedio case II to pull the battery when i have a memory would just save me alot of time having meterberry on my phone

I love my storm but it has its tendencies to be slow from time to time. SMS can be slow and opening and closing apps can be slow. I would love to see if this program can provide an improvement in performance for me. I would greatly love to return the favor by reping the product. I know a lot of people that have the storm and many of them are my friends who also have the same problems. thanks

I'm obsessed with making every piece of tech I own (iPod Touch, IBM T61, Storm, etc.) run at it's peak performance.

This app would allow me to monitor all the vitals of my phone in real time, and without having to go through any menus!

And would it help if I said "I never win anything!"


This program would be great to add to my collection. I've been having memory issues with my Storm and I'd love to give this a try.

Please please please! *puppy dog eyes*

It´s a nice tool. If You put the icon on the on the home screen, you can see ever the free RAM or the remaining battery.

Please select me as a winner, pls! =D

It drives me nuts how hard it is to get this information through the normal OS, so to be able to get it through a simple app would be great!

Hello, I am an honest, straight shooting son of a gun and also very interested in having a Meterberry for my phone. I have developed a newlyfound obsession with my Blackberry but at the same time, I don't have the cash flow right now to be spending any more money on this phone than what I all ready am. That is all. Thank you!


My wife and I are new to Blackberry (3 weeks) and we both have Storms (Verizon). We are still learning the terrific abilities of this wonderful device. Today my beautiful wife tried to call me, but was notified that she had zero memory left for applications and was unable to complete the call. Apparently, an app like MeterBerry would help prevent this very situation. As we go through our daily lives we learn more about this device and just what is important and necessary to stay in touch, it's difficult to know which way to turn, but with the help of this great site we are getting a ton of advice and guidance... thank you!

I've heard such great things about meterberry. I'm completely OCD about memory, and this would be a great way to feed my crackberry habit.

Until the OS is properly fixed, this looks like a must have for any Storm owner. I love mine, but wish some of the bugs would finally get ironed out. It doesn't stop me from converting people to Blackberry though.

This app looks pretty sweet. i wish that RIM offered it with the phone itself. its nice to know how much memory your apps are taking up when running.

I go to college in the US but I've been studying abroad in Italy since January and knowing how my Storms doing would be beyond helpful so I don't get caught with a dead battery or some other problem when I'm away on a weekend.

This would be a great addition. It mwould allow me to monitor the available memory and know when i need to close applications to work more efficienly.

To meterberry or not to meterberry?
That is the question.
With a free copy from this forum,
I could get a suggestion
On how to increase the performance of my blackberry storm!

As one of the VERY few members running 5.0 hybrid on their 9500 Storm as opposed to the 9530 users i think it would be interesting to know how battery life is affected on this unit. Also checking memory leaks would be VERY useful.

i realy would apprichiate a free copy because i have to pull my batterie everyday lately and i cant find the leak. :( also my batterie has some wild swings from living 1 day to living 4 days. would be interesting to find out why. :)

This seems to be a great program to find memory leaks in software. The battery meter is great as well to detect whether other programs are running in the background such as the GPS. Thanks for making a great app. Now if only memory cleaning and log clearing function and can be added, it would be even better

This looks like a very helpful app! The worse thing about the storm is the lack of RAM, looks like this app would solve that problem.

If this app was for sale, I would already have it! I really enjoy the "hands-on" indicators that this app displays. With the Storm 9530, so much goes on that you can't really see. My battery doesn't last too long so I bought BatteryBooster. Not really sure if it helps or not. Memory seems to make BB slow so I bought MemoryUp, but it always says that 0 Btyes were freed up which doesn't help either. I need help with technical aspects and visualizations like this app provides. Please consider me as one of the "needy" for the app. Thank you.

I would use this to find potential memory leaks on my Storm, as I run many beta apps, a few of which I think (but can't seem to prove) have memory leaks. I would also use it to maintain the most available memory. That and since I am trying my hand at developing themes, this would be an extremely handy tool to help in finding improvements in my developing themes!

Hey, that is exactly what I need. This way I will exactly know how my battery last and how much memory left inan instant. I think all BB should have this application. With this application people know the Heart pulse of their BB. Thanks.

After trying about every OS leak there is, this app is something that I need pretty bad. I have a constant memory leak which is the cause of an app and this program would definitely help me find it. Thanks to Crackberry, I love my Blackberry!

Looks like a great product in the sense that you could test and weed out the apps that use to much battery or leaks memory. App management! Who couldn'd use a app like that...

I totally need this application... It is wiked awesome!

I don't know if it does this or not, but it would be even cooler if the application knew when the OS rebooted or crashed and could keep track of those.

I've had my storm since january and my application memory since I got it has never been above 38MB I got Meterberry a few days ago so I could be alerted for when It drops below 20MB so that I can reset the BB. I see on this the it shows the free application memory at 49.7MB and is running on the OS same as I am. Is there something wrong with my storm or is it more normal to have it running around 20 to 30 MB like mine does?

Comment... I'm all about tweaking my Storm to running it's best (beta OS's, battery and memory optimization programs, etc.), so this would be a great way to see how well it's all working... especially with the logging feature!


I think that this will be a very useful tool in finding various memory leaks that tend to occur when my storm is just sitting there minid its own business....... I do hope that it doesnt drain memory or battery power itself..... e.f.davis
