- CrackBerry KevinCrackBerry FounderBrilliant Thread! I've been wanting to turn this into a BlackBerry 101 Featured article.... so let's use this thread to collect some data. I'd actually like to see the favorites broken down into the following:
Top 10 Free Apps- opera mini, google maps, viigo crackberry, etc.
Top 10 Paid Apps- flipside, googhelper, jivetalk, etc.
Top 10 Subscription Apps simulsays, telenav, worldmate, etc.
I think Top GPS Apps would be a good category too!!!
Once we have a good selection of favorites on this thread, I'll do up the Top 10s with screenshots, descriptions, links to download, etc.
Let's keep em coming!!!03-12-08 06:24 PM
- my favorites are
viigo--can't live without it
cb.com--need i say more?
empower html--after trying both (empower and bb smart, i much prefer empower)
soft reset--sure beats a battery pull
that's all, i'm pretty boring. the only other things besides themes i have are games, and well brickbreaker and lingo are my favs.03-12-08 06:42 PM
- chaz_cbRetired Forums ModeratorBest one I've paid for is Findit:
Convenience Software: Home of FindIt, find your lost Blackberry even if it's on silent.03-12-08 06:46 PM
- Wow, and I was kind of feeling bad and noobish because I thought I was putting up a thread that had been done so many times before, haha.
Well let me edit what I put up then for what's free and what's not.
Free (This is in no particular order. In my opinion these are all great applications):
- Opera Mini
- Google Maps
- Viigo Crackberry (this one I just can't get off from)
Paid (Once again in no particular order):
- Real iBerry Blocks (This is a theme but it's oh so sweet. By far the best iPhone theme setup I've seen out there.)
- MobiPocket eBook Reader
- BlackBerry Smart HTML E-mail Viewer
Anyone know where I can pick up BB Weather for my Crimson Curve? And anyone know of an application where I can take screenshots of my BlackBerry screen without the need of a computer? Like one where I can just take the picture of my screen from my Crimson and be able to save the picture to my BB or SIM card? Do they even make an application like that?
And about cb.com, is that an actual application I can download to my Crimson or are you guys just talking about the website?03-12-08 07:36 PM
And what do you use MobiPocket eBook Reader for? I assume it can pull up books, but what's your daily purpose for it?03-12-08 08:08 PM
- Beyond411 is exactly like the name implies: it does the 411 like when you dial it up to call information for phone numbers and addresses, plus more. It can look up Yellow Pages, White Pages, Weather, Movies, Sports, Shopping, and more. It's definitely useful if you're out and trying to find the number and address of a restaurant you want to go to and such. The setup is really easy to use and it gets you the information you need quick and with detail.
PocketDay is kind of like a theme but it's actually in the form of a program. Although it's not free they do have a demo version of it out if you want to download it and give it a try. PocketDay is a powerful application that takes up your entire screen, but it helpfully lists your Missed Calls, Inbox for Texts and E-mail, your Tasks, To Do list, your Calendar, and it even shows the weather in push I believe as well as stocks and a Google search engine. It's also entirely customizable which is an awesome plus to add (the order of the items, font, colors, etc.). They have different versions of PocketDay for like personal and business use depending on the needs for your BlackBerry. You can check it all out on their site if you want: PocketDay
MobiPocket eBook Reader is just for my books that I like to read on the go. Books can be purchased and downloaded from their website (Mobipocket.com - eBooks and ebook reader for your PC, PDA and Smartphone: Palm, Windows mobile, Symbian, Blackberry, or PocketPC.) and then you're free to carry and read them whenever you please. It's like carrying a mini-library in the palm of your hand. Setup is easy and pleasing to the eye, and the collection of books you can purchase and download is massive ranging from fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, and classics, to things like dictionaries, encyclopedias, reference books, and more. Check it out.
