To be honest its just nice to have the chance to win free stuff for my blackberry. Any of theses apps apply to how I use the phone so they would be great to have.

oh oh...pick me, pick me :)
Love the contest that you guys do here on CrackBerry.com! Best BB site...hands down!

Im always looking for the newest latest and greatest apps. for my Blackberry. I love to find out new things that this device is capable of.

As stated above (I 2nd the 2nd guy)it is nice to being to win free things with the state of our economy right now. Winning free stuff (for my Storm) also gets the new off to a great start.

I have just moved from years with a Treo to the Storm. I travel a lot and my PDA is essential to business and staying connected so looking forward to filling out my BB with the essential tools I need.
Bob

This is so nice, I really dig CB, there is always new software to "Soup" up your BB.

*Batting eyelashes* I'd like some freebies

I use the mp3 player all the time, but this looks much better. I would really like phoneface, but I don't think it works on the Storm (no trackball).

I would love one of these apps. and today is my 21st birthday i would love a birthday gift like this.

I'd loooove to have phoneface because I have a ton of contacts and this way, if I have multiple people with the same name, having their picture (I have many but the facebook downloading their pictures part will just makes that 1000x easier) helps but I could always use another way to organize my contacts!

WOW what a Happy New Year it is, I now have my new Blackberry Storm, I have discovered "CRACKBERRY" and what a better way to start the new year than to win a prize with crackberry - your site is great and i have discovered sooooooo many great tips as this is y first Blackberry...

Regards and All The Best
Stu

I'd love the Ringo app. Being able to actually manage my ringtones and an easier way to assign them would be awesome!

I'd like the PhoneFace speed dialer because i want to see my beautiful fiances face everywhere I can in my phone. Thanks for this oppurtunity and HAPPY NEW YEAR...

I travel alot and love using my Bb as my mp3 player but the storms edia player is a bit bland. This sounds like it could be the fix!!!

Feliz Ano nuevo

Simple reason. Love being first with something. Was the first in Batam, Indonesia with the Bold, First with the Storm in Batam, and possible for all of Indonesia and I want to be the first to get this app for FREE.

Thanks

Batamhog

As if I didn't have enough reasons to visit Crackberry.com everyday, you guys keep these contests coming.

Happy new year Crackberry!

It would be a wounderful way to start off 2009 with a free app. Thank you CB and Happy New year everyone.

I am a BB Newbie one month and counting. I am in love with my Storm and if anything love the versitility apps add to my device. Now that I went BB, I will never go back! Weeee!

Happy New Years!!

Hey! Happy New Years all! I am a relatively new BB user ( and abuser) and I'd really love to have some new apps to play with. I don't have any "extra" apps on my BB so these would be an awesome addition! Thanks! I hope I win!!

I deserve Flipside for Free because since getting my Crimson Curve in September, my iPod has become nothing more but a dust collector! i refuse to use the competitions product i.e. APPLE! so come on Flipside! turn my curve into a great MP3 Player!!!

Happy New Year Crackberry Fam!!!

Phoneface is an app that the phone should have came with anyway. If it works well I'll probably buy it, so winning it would be even better :)

I just got my Blackberry Storm and I am loving it. Too bad I spent my savings on getting the phone, and now I am too broke to afford any accessory software for it. I'd love to be able to "top" my iPhone friends with their flashy toys, while setting the example for my Blackberry friends.

Flipside looks like an awesome app! It would definitely help me ditch my iPod and use my BB as the primary MP3 player :)

I an new to blackberry and would relly love to have some apps for my new storm. this site has been really helpfull to me and think it is great what you guys do.. so please pick me. happy new year

These apps are the coolest...I would love to have the Flipside and Phoneface dialer. The phoneface dialer would be awesome!

I want one of these so I can show my friends that the Storm is just as cool as the iphone!

Jay

I deserve one of these because I already owned copies of the previous giveaways, so I did not enter. My generosity has earned me this contest. :)

I just ordered my Bold from amazon.com and would love to install FlipSide as my first app!

The compatibility drop down box says it is not for Bold, but the product description says that it is?

I am a crackberry addict with a BB Storm wanting more apps. Its the NEW YEAR so what better way to fill up your berry with any of these apps.

I purchased my CrackBerry Curve in September, deciding on this phone over the I-Phone. One of the things I really appreciated about the second choice (if you're not first, you're last...Ricky Bobby) was the graphics associated with that phone. This would make my life complete to add this app to my CrackBerry Curve.
Thank you.

Happy New Year! PhoneFace would make my life easier!! I wouldn't have to scroll through a bunch of contacts and FlipSide just sounds great to see some album art. To be honest, all the apps sound good lol. I hope I win :)!

With these apps on my phone, my phone wouldn't annoy me with the same ring tone every single time I get a call. Happy New Years guys!

See Below:

1. Obsessed.
2. Addicted.
3. In Love with my BB Curve.
4. He deserves the very best technology has to offer.
5. In doing so will keep him faithful to me and vice-versa

LMAO...

Okay there are my five reasons to get the freebies.

This is my comment to enter in the drawing:

I think having a cool app from "Electric Pocket" is an awesome way to kick off the New Year. Kudos!

Ringing in the New Year with a personalized freebie from CB is never a bad thing. You guys are among the most generous with holding great contests and following through with them. You deserve the best from the community and I'll be the first one to state that you guys are doing an amazing job. We all commend you for your hard work and dedication. Have a Happy New Year!

My friend tried to guess my password too many times, and she didn't listen to direction very well - and my entire phone was wiped! I NEED apps ! Thanks :D

I want one because I love Crackberry.com and my Blackberry Curve. I was good for 2008 so maybe I deserve one?!

One of the main reasons I purchased the blackberry storm was to have access to all these great applications. Also was to consolidate all my devices into one and with these apps, it makes me life easier and my blackberry more enjoyable.

I'd love to get my hands on a copy of flipside because I already have so many mp3's I listen to and it would be awesome to add the album covers.

i want it because flipside and phone face makes the interface awesome looking and makes other people ask me what it is because they're jealous it looks so awesome!

forgot to say it in my last comment ; )
im always going out of the country and it would be pretty nice to see whose texting me when i have my phone off for up to two month long period of times
so ya happy new years again!

Thanks Electric Pocket! I would like to use my MP3s for ringtone, message and email tones, but I've already spent a boatload of money on apps and accessories for my BB Bold at Crackberry.com in the last few months. Happy New Year!

Crackberry and Blackberry Newbie here... would love a chance to win one of those apps, the flipside one seems the best... would be awesome to scroll your songs. THanks!

I'd love a copy of flipside to improve on the native mp3 player on my storm but I tried it via the free trial a few days ago and it isn't working quite right on the storm just yet.

I am crazy happy with my Storm. I have had it since launch and keep loving it as i learn how to use it. I need more Apps! I want more Apps! Gimme more Apps! :)

Ringo seems like a great application. I would love to set different email and message tones for your friends. I used to be able to do this on my Moto Q9 and I miss being able to know who is texting me.
I would love to have this application.

I'd love Ringo because I miss knowing who's texting me like I did on my last phone. I'll hear the txt notifier now, ignore it if I'm busy, forget about it, only to find out it was important (like my hubby asking if I want a mocha java chiller since he's near Sonic) LOL

I'd also like to know when my brother & his wife are txting me. He's about to do a 3rd tour and set to start the process on the 10th. During this time, a phone call is near impossible. I'd be @ my phone's mercy, waiting for their txts. Having the Ringo would rock. :-)

What a cool program idea. I would like one because I don't have a data plan, so when I get txt from twitter (from crackberry), i can forward it to my email and use the link, instead of saving the txt, and handtyping it into my webrowser!

The phoneface one sounds definitly like the one I want! How cool would that be to just flick through some faces of your friends and family and BAM,dial away!!This is a must have!Thanks

Being new to the BlackBerry community, I would appreciate any and all help managing my media! FlipSide sounds like the perfect app to go with my new Storm!

Happy New Year!! I want that. No, just kidding. I would like it if my name is pulled. I like all the software and gizmos available that I get to play with for my Blackberry.

I really need that Ringo app to MANAGE different
sounds to different contacts, i need all of em' LOL! besides... I LOVE FREE APPS!

I'm new the crackberry and blackberry and I would appreciate a app to guide me through a quick and easier way of mastering my blackberry. It would mean a lot because just having anyone these app would kick start this new with a brand new phone and awesome applications. Thanks.

Crackberry Curve

I sell cell phones for ATT and personally try to sell blackberry every sale and mos the time I succeed because I throw my curve in their hand and they cant resist. I would be the best for this so I can show what he apps can do and this would maximize sales for the apps. Pick me and you wont go wrong.

CoverFlow on my Blackberry Storm??? Hell yes. The one thing that a blackberry will never have is an iPod, but this looks like a must have. I already have PhoneFace and love it.

Happy New Year to all, and thanks so much to CrackBerry.com and Electric Pocket for their generosity in holding this contest! Since I've chosen to use my Curve as a music player rather than having a separate one, FlipSide is the app I'm most interested in. Ringo is a close second as I am somewhat of a ringtone junkie. I would be happy to receive any of the four, though!

I would love FlipSide. I can't keep my hands off of the Storm, and being able to swoosh through album covers would increase my Stormy joy just because I'd have another reason to never let the phone leave my fingers.

on my bb. Flip side looks like just the thing to get mp3s in order with playlists. Also always wanna keep up with the artists so the online biography feature is a plus!

and it makes me jealous about how easy it is for him to flip through people. i didn't even know what it was until now.

hey guys i just switched from my Bold to my Storm, on which i lost all my paid for apps *wink wink* i Would LOVE to get phoneface back ^_^

So far with the storm, im loving the bright screen, its so beautiful to look at :D

I would love to win one of the copies of Flipside. I really like the interface and use the music functionality on my pearl ALOT! Thanks for the wonderful work in the Berry community!

Would Love to try PhoneFace if it was available for the Storm! ---Actually I would like to try Any of these apps if they are available for the Storm :)

Would love a copy of Ringo, it seems like it would solve a problem with profiles I have been trying to solve!

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.
THIS IS MY PRAYER WHEN MY STORM 9530
FREEEEEZZZZZEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy New Year FROM LAS VEGAS

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

MY PRAYER WHEN MY STORM 9530 FREEEEEEZZZEEEESSSS

I've been looking for an application to flip through the artwork while playing albums. It's good to see some decent applications becoming available.

This would be a cool way to show off the capabilities of my Storm, or any Blackberry for that matter. It would also be a good way to refer people to Crackberry.

I had an 8820 which grew legs on the 30th. It had lost the symbol key (I said it had lost a tooth) which RIM said was not a mfg error so I was not horrified that it went missing.

So far, so good. Running .217. Very stable, little if any mem leak.

Happy 2009!

r.

I tried the flipside trial and i loved the app and it would be awesome to get it for free although i would also like all the other apps!

Wishing all the crackberry famlies a Happy New Years and may the next year be properous...( the features sounds really cool to have)

I would love to have the phoneface speed dialer and ringo since i do utilize the speed dial often and i manage my calls by distinguishing the ring from each callers.

I don't really want it, my phone does. I told him no..

Then he threatened me, by going into permanent stand by mode.

So, if I don't win. My phone will be as practical as a soggy penis.

I want Ringo for 2 reason, 1 I want to take control of my ringtone, and 2 I'm a HUGE Beatles fan and I GOT to have a program named "Ringo"!

I would like FlipSide because i' m always listening to music on my BB 8310 and i' am trying to get into the music industry as well so it would be awesome to have this application with the amazing interface on my BB to show off my music...and on top of that its just an ridiculously cool app =D (and it looks so much better than the default media player).....thanks Crackberry and Electric Pocket... HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! WOOO HooOOOO

I'd like to give you some cool reason to win, but that wouldn't be my truth.

The fact is I've already won. The act of making this post and entering the contest places a few more sparks of hope in my daily existence. It's nice to have a little excitement, even if it's a small chance of winning something I didn't already have.

thanks guys

The electricity went out the day after christmas and on my wedding day two years ago (not even joking about this). Would love to have the PhoneFace speed dialer.

i love my BB Bold. i use it as much, if not more, as a MP3 player as i do a phone. I spend hours going through my audio files arraging songs by albums and artist. mai=king sure there are no duplicates and every track has the album art. i am meticulous about making sure all the tracks are spelled correctly and every artist has the name spelled correctly on every track. i organize my audio files like i organized my emmense cd collection in highschool. i would love to have the FlipSide app for my Bold. I tried the demo on my curve 6-8 months ago and loved the app just couldnt justify spending the cash on it when the BB came with a media player that functioned without many problems even if there werent alot of bells and whistles. But winning the flipside app would make this new year start off with an exciting bang!

I need some great apps for my storm. I want to make the other storm lovers to envy my.......STORM!!!

that mp3 program would let me use my storm instead of having my ipod touch...and that txtfoward would be great instead of backing up sms all the time just set up a gmail and have an archive of sms...

The flip side app seems like a great mp3 organizer for my storm. I have been using my storm more and more for mp3's and it would be nice have an app like this that make listening and selecting my music easier. So crackberry hook me up!!!

A good start is a good way to put it! Im am a noob to Crackberry, a noob to Blackberries, and a noob to the work it takes to learn about this life, to learn about the phone, and to learn procedures protocles and policies. Its been a hard couple weeks with studing, reading, and lots of trial and error. With that said I am ready to start using this site and this phone to all its potential. I am ready to start playing and what a nice way to start is by adding some new toys to my new toy.

Thanks for listening and way to get the croud motivated EP and CB folks!

I think I want txt forwardd. I always see myself typing up ranodm text messages, such as from holidays or birthdays, or from my girlfriend and I think txt forward would really save me a lot of time. It would be get this app, especially for free!

Happy New Year to everyone and keep up the great work!

I think i would really like to try flipside, I have found that I am using my BB much more than my ipod to listen to music these days

It would be nice to win an app instead of always paying for one....I would love to have the txtforward app that would be so helpful in my line of work!!!

Happy New Year!!!

i would use these apps they would be a great addition to my phone im legelly blind and could use these apps to help me with everyday tasks. the blackberry is the only phone i can use because of my sight.i think i would get the most benifit out of these apps more than anyone else, thanks and happy new yr

I would totally love a copy of Ringo.
I have tons of friends and I like to give each of them their own ringtone, but with the default BB interface doesn't make it simple to do!

I think the PhoneFace Speed Dialer would come in handy. It would be great to flip through the pictures of the people I call most.

Great way to start the new year! Happy New Year, my fellow Crackheads!!!! I was thinking today that I want the Flipside application but a little short on cash, and now CB might make it happen for me.

I would love to win a copy of FlipSide or Ringo. There is nothing better than listening to your favorite tunes and getting getting the album cover and more info on the album.

Ringo would be awesome to screen calls from people at work and my family. I can just set a ringer for that group and ingore the calls.

I think i would really like to try flipside, I have found that I am using my BB much more than my ipod to listen to music these days

these apps would be very helpful to me im legelly blind and anything to make my curve better would help and could help me in my everyday tasks and blackberry is the only phone i can use. seeing they have the biggest fonts ive seen on a phone, i think i would benifit most from these apps. thanks happy new yr

i would love to win this! it looks like such a cool app...and gives me the perfect reason to assign a pic for every contact :)

I'm a new BlackBerry user, so all the apps that I can put on phone just keep adding functionality to an already great device (I love <3 my Storm). I would love a copy of PhoneFace because it would show connect my facebook even more to my berry, who wouldn't want that.

I need these apps badly because I'm a music junkie on my phone and I need these apps to compete against my brother's iPhone. he always showing me his cool apps. I have yet to show anything cool to him yet.

Oh I love Flipside! If I doesn't win I'll just have to buy it. I've been putting it off for too long. I hope all my CrackBerry friends have a great New Year! :)

I am new to the Blackberry community and trying to see al that it has to offer, however everything costs a lot of money. In these hard economic times this would really start the new year off right. Thanks

I just got a brand new 8350i and I these apps so it can be the coolest smartphone around...cooler than all the iPhones used by my mislead friends :-)

Flipside would make it easier to go through my music and phoneface would do the same for calling.

Nearly all of my contacts have pictures already attached to them and I have always wanted to have an app that would allow me to access my friends via picture! This would be an awesome app to have and I'd love to win it!

I own the 9530, and to be honest, FlipSide is the perfect app for navigating and utilizing one's music collection on their phone!

Same with PhoneFace speed dialer!

These are certainly apps I would love to have!

I need phoneface. I call about 4 numbers all the time or text them and its such a hassle to have to scroll through my contacts or way down my inbox to respond to a text message.

i'd love to have the phoneface speeddialer because it'd make my life so much easier because i have so many duplicate names in my phonebook!

Getting these apps would make my Blackberry habit much easier. I would make sure to push these apps to everyone Blackberry owner I know.

haha I should win because of my ultra-cool name :P :D Not to mention that I'm fairly new to the whole BlackBerry addiction. I'd also like to see what is really offered for my BlackBerry.

OOH OOH Pick me!!! I want to win I want to Win!!!!! I am a first time Blackberry user, and I have the new Storm and am loving it!!! I should have bought a BB WAY sooner than i did, but I am a new BB fan and will NEVER go back to a "Regular" phone!!

I'm an addict and that's what I do best is add as many apps to my berry as possible. It fuels my addiction.

Also... because it's FREE! Tough economy and anything that is below a .01 is always great.

Im glad that there are great companies out there that are willing to do things like this for their customers.

Thanks to all and Happy New Year

The Phone Face Speed Dialer looks pretty cool. Yup, sign me up please because I feel the need for SPEED.

Love it so far - don't know enough to know what I'll need and what I won't. I look forward to learning lots on the site/forum.

Being in the military makes it hard to keep track of everyone I meet and stay connected to them. I finally had to experience the Blackberry craze and much to my wife's chagrin, I love it. Your apps would be great to keep myself better organized or make ringtones that would remind me of that individual while we were deployed. Thanks for doing this Electric Pocket

It is a great sign from great people to give away their products for free during these less than desireable times. Big Thank You to all the folks involved and especially to Crackberry.com for our gateway to "all things Blackberry".

I'm really curious about some of those apps and
mom always said to try new things and don't knock
it til I try it. Hit me back!

I really want the Ringo operation. I just got my brand new Blackberry Cure (upgrade from a broken Pearl) and I'm finally starting to appreciate the awesomeness that is a fully customized Blackberry. I didn't have a single application on my Pearl and I really missed out.

This Christmas I passed up all the other options to be faithful to my BB, and I'm glad I did. The only thing that makes me sort of sad is that I have a Mac, and I miss out on some features and abilities because of the non-syncing. If I could turn my mp3s into ring tones, I wouldn't feel nearly so sorrowful about that. ;) So I definitely want this!

Hey there folks....I would loooove to have FlipSide because I use my blackberry curve as an Mp3 player like you wouldn't believe!! I love album cover apps and have resisted for a long time to even have itunes...I'm so into blackberry that so far, this would be one of my favorite blackberry applications

I would like the Ringo app because I would love to be able to assign a ringtone to each of my contacts, and going through the blackberry menu just takes too long! I would also love to turn my mp3s into ringtones

PhoneFace and Ringo look good. I already have FlipSide and it's great. CrackBerry.com rocks.

Just a great way to enhance my blackberry curve. That would be nice to assign ringtones to callers. Especially since their tastes in music would make it easy to recognize the call. Managing and using my MP3's with some of the applications is a change from just listening to them. Hit me up people.

I new you to the blackberry thing and i think one of this programs will help me get a start with my storm

I have been wanting these applications for quite some time now! I hope i am chosen. I will put them to good use :)

It is a great sign of giving from great people to give away their products for free during these "less than desireable" times. Super big "Thank You" to all the folks involved and especially to Crackberry for giving us this gateway to all things Blackberry.
Randy

I deserve to win some free stuff! I am so broke at the moment and a crippling crackberry habit doesn't help!

Happy New Year's Crackberry!

I would like to win a free software cuz i'm poor and i just got my self a BB Bold and can't afford to spend any more money and this would be a great xmas and new years gift for me.

I would love a copy of FlipSide because my son got an ipod touch for Christmas and I want to show him that Blackberrys are just as cool and moreso even!

I would like a copy of Phoneface speed dial to be able to see my friends' smiling faces when I call them.

Well I think a good application through which one can save your SMS important value in your email, or make a backup copy of all and received an SMS that the most important thing is that it automatically and in many If the almost invisible!

txtForward - automatically forward your text messages to any email address

Considering that I am probably older than 90% of BB users and that my learning curve has been up there, I would really appreciate new apps to make my BB experience more enjoyable.

Thank you!

Well... Sure I'd love to win this contest, I want to try every app... I love trying new apps.. some I keep and some go into the circular file.... so yeah I want these apps.. who wouldn't!!

Happy New year crackberry!! Your the best!!!

All four of these apps look really cool especially PhoneFace and FlipSide. I havent seen any of them so i am just hoping they work on the storm. Placing a call on the storm is a bit of a chore and anything to make that easier would be great. My children are calling me a CrackBerry addict, so maybe winning something free would shut them up. LOL I know that is just wishful thinking but one can hope!
I am worthy O CRACKBERRY GODS please PICK ME !!!!

I am a music freak and would love a copy of Flipside to keep track of my music collection. Also TxtForward would be usefull for work to keep track of all my orders when getting txt messages.

Its just nice to have the chance to win free stuff for my blackberry. NEW to the Blackberry phone love it, and found this site I'm learning allot from here. Any of theses apps apply to how I use the phone so they would be great to have.

Happy New Year
