    Welcome to CrackBerry.com!

    Explore CrackBerry's list of free OTA apps along with CrackBerry App Store and BlackBerry App World for apps to customize your BlackBerry!

    For your specific traits, check out:

    i enjoy listening to Slacker Radio

    MaraTick is a great free list app!

    MaraTick OTA Download

    BeBuzz is useful!

    BerryBuzz extends your default Blackberry alert system. BerryBuzz allows you to customize the LED color and create repeating audible reminders for many alert types.

    It will repeat alerts until acknowledged so you will never miss an alert again.


    DriveSafe.ly is a service that
    makes TXTing and E-Mail safe while driving.

    Here's what it offers:

    * A service that reads your TXT and E-Mails out loud.
    * An Auto-Responder for TXT and E-Mails.
    * The best premium voices.

    QuickLaunch is a must have application for every BlackBerry owner. With an interface that is seamlessly integrated with the look of the BlackBerry OS, QuickLaunch will create shortcuts to most any application on your device with ease and style. In addition the added functions included with QuickLaunch will enable you to delete several other apps on your device saving memory making QuickLaunch the 'Swiss Army Knife' of your Blackberry

    Check out the BlackBerry 101 How-To Lecture Series ! This will help you with the basics such as downloading apps, themes, wallpaper, ringtones. It's also a good idea to browse the forums and read as much as possible. Many questions you have are answered there already!

    Here's my list:


    First two are a bit on the pricey side but come out to like 8 bux if its on sale and i think they are worth it.

    ScoreMobile for sports
    BerryBlab for forums
    QuickPull for the daily blackberry batterypull
    iHeartRadio for a lot of local radios
    Opera for a better browser experience
    Addictive Tower Defense for fun gaming
    CardStar for storing membership cards
    Facebook for socializing

    Quick Launch so you can put all the above apps hidden away in a folder and access them easily with this app.

    QuickLaunch and BerryWeather are basic.

    I like Flycast for streaming music but Slacker and Pandora are good, too.

    Forward, Reply, and Edit if you do much e-mail.

    Leave It On.
    Google Maps.
    Snaptu for RSS and social apps..

    And always the CrackBerry launcher.

    Quicklaunch (paid) - rocks, plain and simple

    BerryWeahter (paid & free) - I have the paid version but they make a free one

    BerryBuzz (paid) - if you like to have sms, email, etc have a different colored light indicators and more advanced notification options

    Berry PopUp (paid) - Its the only one that lets you reply directly to SMS texts although Aerize Email Alerts has a nicer pop up screen but again no ability to reply directly to SMS

    Iconify (paid) - lets create icons on your home-screen to call/email/text contacts as well as websites

    MeterBerry (paid) - I am a Storm 1 user so this app is great for memory management

    Google Maps (free)

    Poynt (free) - picks up where google maps leaves off and adds gas station finder and movie theaters as well as a link to open table to make reservations for dinner.

    Yelp (free) - sweet applicaiton to read reviews from your peers on restaurants, activities you name it.

    I am a huge foodie so if you like me enjoy eating well you should check out these free apps:
    Urban Spoon - very cool spinning wheel application for searching restaurants by neighborhood, cuisine adn price
    OpenTable - make reservations right from your phone
    Zagat (paid & free) - great reviews
