    Lol people who pay to see the weather crack me up. Are you a storm-chaser or something? Lmao.

    OP, please boycott that Facebook app, and use the mobile site. You may mislead developers that its actually worth downloading. Jk, but its the worst app for Blackberry.

    What is shazam?

    And do any of yall have a problem viewing videos via youtube or any other site? It doesn't matter if its the youtube player or just their mobile site. The videos are pixelated and take forever to buffer, etc.

    Lawlist: What is the Spanish DIctionary app you use? I'm not finding one under the name Spanish Dictionary on Appworld or the Crackberry store. If it's the Spanishdict.com one I have on my iPod Touch I'm gonna scream with joy.

    CarptureIt - takes screen shots
    SearchIt - provides an all in one web search interface (designed by Forums Moderator Shao128)
    QuickLauch
    BBNotepad - replaces memopad (saves memos to memory card instead of device)
    BBTran - language translation
    YouVersion - many different translations of the Bible
    eMobile Email - provides greater control over email than default email program
    eMobile Today Professional
    eMobile Tasks - task manager (better than default)
    Garmin Mobile - GPS navigation
    PimpMyMail - control LED for email. There are others that work with SMS but I despise
    texting so I have never had a need to try them.
    Tether - connect BB to PC and use as modem
    File Manager Pro - file manager with .zip handling
    eOffice - read and edit MS Office docs, send faxes directly from BB, etc
    Fixmo - best utulity app for the BB, hands down. The undelete messages is worth the price.
    BBScanner - police, fire and EMS radio scanner
    Ascendo Money
    Ascendo Fitness

    Flipside - music player
    Google Mobile App

    What advantage does quicklaunch have over holding down menu key? Never used it before - interested if it's actually worth it

    Holding the memory key down ONLY shows you what is running and allows you
    to switch between them.

    QuickLaunch is not meant to replace that. What is does is allow you to create
    tons of quickly accessible shortcuts.

    I got rid of all my lauchers and added shortcuts to QuickLaunch. My most
    commonly used apps are also shortcuts in QuickLaunch, as well as my most dialed
    numbers and much much more.

    Take a look at the feature set here: NikkiSoft - makers of QuickLaunch BlackBerry Shortcuts and App Launcher

    For what it's worth, I thought this was one of the dumbest apps ever created.
    A day after using it it became one of the apps I will never NOT have on my BB.

    You will be amazed at how much more efficient you are with your phone. Mind
    you, I am one of the most app critical people you will encounter. Of the 50+
    apps on my phone 75% are paid apps. If I am paying for them they damn well
    better live up to their promise.

    QuickLaunch exceeded my expectations and I can find no fault with it.

    <B>PodTrapper</b> - I need my podcasts (even though BlackBerry is getting its on podcasts app)
    <B>SearchIt</b>
    <B>Wordpress</b> - so I can update my blog (link found in my signature)
    <B>Genioius</b> (sp) - Delicious bookmarking app
    <B>Poynt</b> - for finding new resturants while I'm out (it does much more than that though)
    <B>PocketInformant</b> - a better calendar/tasks app than the native one

    Only one for me is colorID! Let's you set LED flash colours based on the number/email address. There is a free version that will do only 2 contacts, or a few quid/dollars to get the paid version.
