Contest: Enter to win a retractable USB cable for your device! Keep reading for details. One accessory that is often forgotten about, but more important then we really realize is the USB cable that comes with our BlackBerry devices.

Want to win Unique Autosport Pocket Pouch for the 9650 from Keep reading for contest details. I'll be the first to admit, I am not always as careful as I should be with my BlackBerry 9650, and this is probably a large part of the reason that I continually look for a case to put on the device.

Review: Otterbox Commuter for the 9650

  Protecting my BlackBerry is always something that is important to me, and if it is important to you as well, then you have probably invested some money is various cases, looking for the perfect match for your device. Otterbox, a company that many of us have heard about, and know for making very protective cases, is one of my personal favorites and I have had them on previous device, such as...

Wifi manager makes using your devices Wifi easy

Wifi on BlackBerry devices is a great thing, but as great as it is, it can quickly become an enemy as well with the excessive battery consumption when it is not in use. Throughout the course of the day many of us travel between locations that have WiFi, most spots are programmed into your device to auto connect upon arrival, but that precious time inbetween the two locations is unfortunately...

Geodelic makes its way onto BlackBerry devices

For many of us who are constantly on the go, our BlackBerry devices are about the only way to gather information while on the run. Whether traveling to a place you have never been or looking for somewhere new to visit in your town, trying to get there can be a struggle. Geodelic, a great location based application that has been available for iOS and Android for a while now, is finally...

Ringtone Remix receives a healthy update

A few months back we took our first look at Ringtone Remix, and while at the time of its launch the application contained a lot of great features, it definitely lacked in some areas. Luckily, the developers understood the initial release was not picture perfect, and took to the books to continue refinment of the code, and to make things better. The latest update includes a huge speed increase...

This application is near the top in its respective category on both iOS and Android, and today it is available for all via a free download on your BlackBerry device. With over 50,000 radio stations, music streams and...

  Ever been watching a video clip on your BlackBerry device and wish that you could take a screen shot of the scene to post to Twitter or send to a friend? Previously, this was no easy task and users would have to try and pause the video at the correct point, and then screen shot that after waiting for the on screen information to disappear. Luckily these days are gone as VideoShots allows...

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] Over the years we have seen many different OS replica themes come across our forums, some replace just the icons while others go for a whole device overhaul, and this is exactly what BlingBerry Themes has done with their latest. The iPhone Simulator is a very fitting name for this theme as it will leave users wondering if they are really playing...

Contest: 50 Copies of BANdroid to be won. Leave a comment! It's a busy week here at CrackBerry. Most of the team is off to San Francisco for DevCon, and we are all anxiously waiting to hear what news RIM has to share with us.

Alarms brings added functionality and custom options to your Blackberry alarm

  As we all know the native BlackBerry alarms application is rather simplistic and extremely basic when it comes to features that it offers, and this does not meet everyones needs unfortunately. Previously it had been shown that additional alarms besides the one that is allowed in the alarms application could be added through your calendar, but for people with busy calendars this may not be...

Browser Issues on on your 9650? Get your fix here!

Everyone seems to be very excited about for the BlackBerry Bold 9650. This OS is one that was a best friend to many, and a worst enemy to others. Now of course we know this was a leak and there are going to be some issues at hand with it, but one of the biggest issues that many users were seeing was that the webkit broswer, that we have all waited so patiently for, was not...

Qwell takes call monitoring to the next level

Call monitoring applications can be your best friend or worst enemy, while they keep away the calls you don't want to come through, they can just as easily be keeping away some of the extremely important calls that you do want to come through. Setting up lists that allow and don't allow certain calls to filter through at various times can be a bit of a daunting task since you don't want to miss...

Contest: 50 Copies of Koncept to be won. Leave a comment! We heard your cries last week when we failed to bring our loyal readers a theme roundup, and we are very sorry, but sometimes things happen that you can't control. Either way, we are back in the swing of things here and we are happy to bring you another great edition of the roundup. With just a week left until DevCon many of us are...

MiniNotes - A feature loaded replacement of the stock MemoPad application

Whether keeping track of pin codes, lyrics, shopping lists or any other type of memo's, many of us use the stock MemoPad application on a regular basis. One of my biggest complaints is that it is extremely basic, and limits what is able to be done with how much potential it has. Well, it appears as though the folks at BB4 Software agreed and they have developed a replacement application...

Learn to type better on your BlackBerry with TyperLearn

So you think you can type? Well, so did I, until I got an email from Fabian with his latest application, TyperLearn. While downloading I was thinking to myself, "I got this, I've been typing on these things for years." Well, wow was I wrong. TyperLearn is a rather simplistic style application with a nice straight forward user interface, but overall it is extremely helpful. After completing...

What's great about this is that you are easily able to set multiple alarms for...

BlackBerry Accessory Roundup: One Free OtterBox Commuter Case Up for Grabs!

This Week's Featured Item: OtterBox Commuter Series Case for the Storm2 Last week we all saw Adam's charging pod he can't live without, and the week before Kevin's extended battery review (big shock he needs one of those huh?). This week's featured accessory is one that I have grown to love, the Otterbox cases. Otterbox has been around for quite some time now, making cases that date back to...
