I will definitely try some. I was just wondering if page once works in Canada too...

ryanlrobinson

Yes, it still has everything I need in Canada (Telus, TD, and MBNA in my case).

I don't understand the need for the Contacts apps, but i likes me some Pageonce.

Faithful to the CRACKBERRY

Pageonce, PocketInformant (calendar & contacts in one UI), Evernote.

Just an FYI: Calorie Counter does not add permissions automatically for internet connections. You have to do that yourself in order to log on to the app from ur BB. On my BB 9650 I just opened applications, hit the menu to edit permissions on the CC app. Might be different on your BB.

I like Evernote but it's such a pig .

Pageonce is a must. Been using it since I got my BB, awesome.

Sportypal to keep track of it all!
