From NikkiSoft (makers of QuickLaunch) comes a brand new app called QuickFind. QuickFind is a GPS application that allows you to find previously marked location such as a parked car, landmark or an address using your BlackBerry. The app is ideal for outdoor uses like geocaching, hiking and fishing.

Upon arrival at the marked point, QuickFind alerts you with a vibrate/LED combo. Never lose your place again with QuickFind at your disposal.

- Information can be displayed in imperial or metric format
QuickFind is currently only available for the Torch and Storm series and sells for $1.99 in the CrackBerry App Store.
