    This is totally subjective... one persons great app is another persons not worth wasting your time on app... I prefer free apps whenever possible... but I do like BerryWeather.

    I would agree free is definitely better .... but that may be the Yorkshire (UK) in me lol .... so far I have been very impressed with what is actually available for free if your happy to do some leg work …… I also agree 100% that favourites are subject to personal taste but as a newbie I am interested in hearing people’s opinion.

    Ps thanks for sharing yours

    One of my best paid for apps was a theme, Corporate Goth. It is inverse video and shot my battery life up bigtime.

    Definitely agree that that depends on you, the user, and what you plan to do with your device.

    The three apps that I use the most are:
    Documents to Go
    Slacker Radio
    SocialScope

    An honorable mention goes to Ubertwitter. I use that when SS is being wonky.

    Flycast Radio - great for Shoutcast stations plus lots more (free and paid)
    Poynt - movie listings, businesses and people (GPS based!) (free)
    Amaze - Turn by turn GPS navigation, not perfect but free!
    Youtube app by Google - again not perfect but free
    Ka-Glom, Tiltris - free time wasting games, pretty fun and free
    Viigo - mainly for my Google Reader RSS feeds (free)

    My favourite free apps are...
    SocialScope (private beta - I lucked out!)
    Facebook
    CB launcher
    Pandora
    e-office mobile data alerter
    *POYNT* I freaking LOVE this app!
    Quickpull

    My fave paid apps are
    BerryBuzz
    Vlingo
    BerryWeather
    Roblock (tracks BB location and wipes data if stolen - even mem card)...I highly suggest this app. It's not even a subscription.

    VIIGO - Do not waste your time or memory with this crap
    People should note that there are two completely different apps out there with very similar sounding names ...

    Viigo is a news feed service. It is a memory hog and does create problems in using your BlackBerry. While I wouldn't crudely refer to it as "crap," it also isn't something I use or need.

    Vlingo is a voice recognition app/service and is excellent. I highly recommend it and use it all the time.

    Please don't fall into the trap of confusing these two very different programs. They are quite different.

    Guess what? I knew that and I know what app I was talking about.
    The fact that I spelled it right should have been a dead give away
    I still crudely or not think it is total and absolute garbage.

    Wow... I have not looked at this thread in a while... get a little heated around here!!!

    I actually like Viigo... I can check Weather around the World... did this for my step-daughter before she left for Egypt so she knew how hot it would be for the next week. And I use it to check stocks if I'm not at home. Plus sports for my favorite football team. This app can be very useful if all the settings are set correctly and you remove stuff you don't need or want.

    That's just my 2 cents on this issue.

    Just downloaded another free app that I needed to mention

    Which you will either wonder how you did without or have no use for what so ever.

    Navita : Translator

    Is piece of translation software that will translate any text you select in either an email, web page etc

    It automatically detects what the language is your asking it to translate (Even Russian) and then translates it into either English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, German or Italian

    So far on the text I have tried it works fantastically and much better than other free translators I have tried online

    Only really any use if you receive emails etc in multiple languages but if you do its a fantastic app

    Don't sweat it, AG. Berryite is always trying to start an argument with someone here in the forums on a daily basis. Sometimes I think that's her only goal here.
