The official Twitter for BlackBerry app got a lot of attention when it was announced and when they opened up the beta. Now that its finally out in the open , we can find out if it does live up to the expectations of a twitter addict.

Google Talk for BlackBerry Review

CrackBerry Idol - David S.

Review of Google Talk for BlackBerry Smartphones

With the popularity of Google Mail on BlackBerries, it comes as no surprise that Google would introduce an instant messaging service to the BlackBerry. Since instant messaging isn't anything new for BlackBerry, and the overly popular BlackBerry Messenger is prevalent among users, Google makes its own attempt with Google Talk. The application isn't really anything more than a simple instant messenger, but it has a very interesting Google-esque style. With all the available platforms on the market (Blackberry, Andriod, Apple, Win Mo, etc.), many applications have tried to bridge the messaging gap. Google Talk successfully allows users to chat to their Gmail friends across multiple platforms in a simple, but all too recognizable, style.

alphaRunner for BlackBerry Review

Use your BlackBerry to track your runs! alphaRunner Review

For avid runners and beginners alike alphaRunner by Eppisoft could be the app for you. When running on a treadmill you have the advantage of a computer tracking your distance and calories burned. Where the treadmill falls short is on scenery and enjoyment of the outdoors. alphaRunner tracks your run using GPS and displays the data in real-time. It records the time, speed, distance and calories burned during your workout.

Dragon for Email for BlackBerry Review


CrackBerry idol - AliciaDragon for Email for BlackBerry Smartphones

Have you ever found yourself trying to compose an e-mail but fumble so much with the keyboard that the text looks more like an alien language than actual words? Well, welcome to my world. Whether it be sending out messages for work or writing e-mails to friends I have no patience to type everything out. It just seems too SLOW. Well thanks to a friend from the train and my favorite blackberry blog site I downloaded a free dictation app called Dragon for E-mail. Finally, a hassle-free way of writing e-mail messages by simply speaking and having the app process and translate the audio into text.

Nuance's Dragon for E-Mail is as simple as the motto on their page: Press, Speak, Send. The app is embedded directly into each e-mail so no additional steps or clicks are necessary. How cool is that? With all the time spent reading crackberry, visiting facebook, listening to slacker and, of course, something called a job, anything that frees up time is hands down a winner in my book.
