    Hey all.
    Just got my first ever BB ( yes its a curve = best BB )(Was considering the 3g iPhone but i h8 att). After some initial problems with the activation, i finally got it up and running. So far im lovin this device. Its both sleek and smooth. so now that ive messed around with it, i was wondering what apps u 'old timers' would recommend downloading to make the BB experience even better.
    I will appreciate any help and advice.
    Thnx in advance

    Welcome to Crackberry.

    Please understand that you only have 64MB of flash memoury to work with, and you need at least, LEAST, 10MB for your device to be stable. That being said, I love Googlemaps as far as GPS is concerned. Opera Mini is also a very popular alternative to the native BB browser. Then, a nice new theme always brightens up my Berry.

    I would recommend you think of what you would like on your phone, and what you would find entertaining or useful, then do a Google search for an app that meets your needs. Chances are, whatever you want in an app, you will find it.

    She's right, before you go crazy downloading apps; get a good size MicroSD card.

    Welcome to CB! Opera mini and an integrated messenger such as jivetalk or EQO would definitely help you. Search for threads that deal with apps. You'll find a huge list of apps.

    Well, at the risk of repeating a gazillion other "must have apps" threads...


    Viigo is an excellent RSS reader. Either go with the original or if you're feeling sassy, go with the Tango beta. If you're a twitter type person, I like twitterberry. Another vote for Opera mini as a "real webpage" browser.

    Do the memory optimizations Stoner suggests and be sure to store media (not apps) on your media card.

    Enjoy and welcome to CB.

    You do need to get more memory for your phone. Ebay has memory cards for pretty cheap. I got a 2gb for 2.00. Anyways I use Viigo,WeatherBug,Facebook,ABC News. Hope this helped you!

    Welcome to CB and congrats on the new BB.... memory is a sacred resource, but IMO Viigo is worth having installed...
