With the release of BlackBerry 6, a lot of users were happy to see that their calendar icon now updates with the current date, instead of being a static number. Unfortunately, there are still many people with devices that don't support BB6, and they don't have that small but cool feature available to them. BlingBerry Themes saw this dilemma, decided to do something about it, and came up with an application called RealCal.  

RealCal is a simple, lightweight app that does just what you think, it updates your actual calendar icon with the current date. No setup required, just install it and it instantly replaces your existing calendar icon.

From the developer:  
"The OS6 version of RealCal is the last missing piece between creating the perfect OS6 style theme on your device. You paid good money for your favorite OS6 theme, but your calendar icon doesn't update like it does with the real OS6. RealCal OS6 solves that problem. We use authentic OS6 graphics sourced directly from OS6 devices, you simply cannot find a more accurate OS6 calendar icon application. The size, the font, the icons themselves, it's all perfect. Just what you're looking for."

RealCal looks great with themes that use OS6 or OS5 icons, or even just a great way to spice up the default theme. And because it syncs with your internal BlackBerry date and time, it's always up to date, even if you change time zones. Current devices supported are the Bold 9700, Bold 9650, Storm 1 & 2, Tour 9630, Curve 9300, Curve 8900, and Curve 8500.

Contest: We have 50 copies of RealCal to give away, courtesy of BlingBerry Themes! To enter to win one, leave your comment below. As always, one entry per person please and winners will be chosen this Sunday at midnight PST. 

For more info and to purchase RealCal on sale now for $1.49
