Someone Setup some concrete list somewhere
*NEW EDIT* We have a fully functioning website now @
So go there and msg one of the team on here if you want to help out (technomensch or KermEd are your best bets atm)
*EDIT* Looks like someone made one and we've all started adding to it :
APP List (Spreadsheet format) : http://bit.ly/apk2bar
APP Form Submission : http://bit.ly/apk2bar-form
Use the first link to browse through the spreadsheet and the second link to submit an app that you have converted/tested. We will clean up the rest if there are duplicates, etc.
This forum is getting confusing with all the posts left right and center with people putting apps 20 pages in etc.
Can someone setup a simple website or even sub-domained website with a simple table with download links that is updated daily.
Even CB could do pbapps.crackberry.com or something.
Just an idea as it'd be a lot more concise.
Anyone wanna step up to the plate ?

I'll give someone the server space and tools to do it, but I've got too much going on to actively commit to creating and maintaining such a list.
If someone wants to tell me what they need spec wise I'll throw up a cloud instance on Amazon for them. Could have the server spooled up within an hour.
Let me know.

Thats definitely in the right direction
another field with the current state of it working or not would be good !

Someone should sticky that spreadsheet and merge the two current very similar threads together to clean this all up a bit and make it less of a head-****

Right now I'm updating the #%$#! out of that list. Because all of the threads look out of date to me and don't show all the failed attempts
List is coming along really nicely though!
I'm also creatin some backups in case people delete stuff out of it again (someone was deleting entries earlier)
Yeah I noticed that too,
Maybe make it read only with a password to edit it and only give the password to reasonably sensible people.

Ok, finished the backlog on the post with confirmed/failed apps. Now to move on to the bigger 30 page one :P
But this is a heck of a nice list. Lot of gems that slipped through the cracks! Good idea with this guys I'll attach the backup from what I've done so far. Its in excel format.

Wow! I come back a few hours later and the list is awesome!
If a few of you want to be in charge of editing this/ keeping it current, I'll turn off the public editing.
It looks as if with google docs I'll need the e-mail addresses of anyone who wants to be an editor, if we opt to turn off public editing. So PM me your e-mails and I'll turn off public editing if this sounds like something you'd be interested in.

I think that'd be the way to go as I watched someone delete a lot the other night whilst I stood there helplessly.
There's always one bad apple (*****) who ruins it for everyone.

Not sure if you noticed, but leaving the Google Doc open for anyone to edit made the situation a little worse for wear. It became complete anarchy and inaccurate. There were update conflicts all over the place.
Locking it down was a good idea, but then we still have to maintain it (which was taking up waaaay too much of my time).
I realized this might be a good compromise instead.....
I have taken things a step further by generating this Google form:
That form will automatically populate this spreadsheet:
No more human interaction necessary.
No worries about corrupted data.
No more lost or hunting for files/links.
Everyone can do their own thing without worrying about screwing everyone else up.
If they want to sort it themselves, they can copy into excel and sort their own copy.
Unfortunately, I don't have time to reimport the applications, but I left it on the forum so hopefully someone will be willing to pick up the pieces.
Like the rest of you, I kinda got frustrated searching for apps when I wasn't being bombarded by PMs
What do you folks think?

Is your address book a mess?
Are you drowning in duplicate contacts?
Give it a good cleaning with Scrubly.

Question though - How does it handle revisits. So like, if we find out an app really doesnt work or that an app really does work, or making changes - how can we make changes to the existing spreadhseet? Re-upload maybe? Or we another page that someone can submit feedback saying that an untested app worked for them? I like the idea, this is a bit better for public consumption.
Edit: Just for clarity. The two use cases of 'needing to update an existing entry' and 'user wants to submit their experience testing untested apps'
