When I'm sitting at my desk on my laptop my BlackBerry sits next to it, like I'm sure many of you do. While your BlackBerry is just there however, why not put a screen saver on it so it doesn't just sit there idly waiting for the next notification to come through? Let it cycle through your favorite pictures to help get you through the day. 

Okay, so that sounds cheesy but there's a pretty neat app that lets you do this if it's the kind of thing you're looking for. It comes in the form of Ultimate Screensaver. As well as just cycling through your choice of pictures, it shows you the time, date, current local weather, battery meter and even includes a news ticker, which is also customizable.

You can choose pictures from your own collection or download packs via the app.


  • Use your own pictures or download packs from in the app
  • A weather widget (click on 'Full Forecast' to see upcoming weather)
  • A scrolling news ticker that can be customized with any RSS feed (click to open article)
  • Date and Time Widget
  • Analog, Digital and Flip style Clocks
  • The perfect screensaver for your device - Day/Night mode

Ultimate Screensaver is a pretty cool utility app that is keeps for me and also has the stamp of Built for BlackBerry, so you know the app has been built to the best standard. It's available in BlackBerry World for $1.99/£1.50.
