BreakingNews for BlackBerry gives you a quick and easy way to stay in the know. This cool little app tosses up a scrolling news ticker on your homescreen, allowing you to get breaking news without ever jumping into an app. You can set up your own RSS feeds (up to 5) and display up to 20 headlines from each. Set the refresh rate anywhere down to 5 minutes and quickly check out the articles in your BlackBerry Browser with a few key taps. All in all a great app if you want to keep up with news on the go. You can grab it on sale for $2.99 in the CrackBerry App Store.

Contest: We have 50 copies of BreakingNews to give away. Just leave a single comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PDT.
