    Found a flashlight app that's pretty cool. May come in handy in a dark location sometime.
    Where did you get that at? I can't find it.

    Go to blackberry . weatherbug . com / storm / storm . jad on your Storm and it will let you download this Free application.

    weatherbug will actually show you the temp outside from wherever you're standing. Blackberry has unlocked the GPS on the device for applications and this applicationd does a search to find out where you are and updates the weather according to where you're standing at any given moment. You're also able to view maps and do a few other cool things too.

    for a free weather application, this absolutely can't be beaten.
    Does it pinpoint your exact location or does it just fine the closest weather receiver and use that to give the conditions.

    Well, it does pinpoint your location, but of course it needs to use the closest weather station... Not like it can tap into the thermometer in your backyard.

    I've just activated a replacement Storm and I can't get Weatherbug to work. I had it working flawlessly on my previous phone, but it keeps freezing the system on the new one. Any ideas?

    It really depends on what you need in daily life. Also there isn't a huge selection of apps just yet. DOn't forget you don't get a TON of application memory either, so if you load too many apps, your Storm will become a Snail. Here are mine, hope they help:

    Soft Reset: so I can battery pull & keep memory level high
    Wall Street Journal, NYT, Bloomberg
    Garmin Mobile: works just like the car version
    YouTube
    Crackberry Launcher (of course!)
    BeamReader: reads PDFs
    Blackberry Alerts
    Viigo
    Trying out WorldMate, but might not travel enough to use it

    Viigo is my favorite. I've deleted a bunch of the channels I don't use and added a number of them like local news, USA Today, FoxNews, etc.
    Also have: Weatherbug and SI, ESPN, Crackberry launchers.

    I have had weatherbug on my home screen for majority of the time I've had the phone and love it. Additionally, I just downloaded the Wall Street Journal app since it was suggested here and since it will be useful this semester for my economics class and I am highly impressed with that app as well. The only other downloaded app I have used a little is gCalc and it works well so far.

    I wish you guys would explain what some of these apps are. I read this forum and I am just confused as to what the app is (and or) does.

    google them
    open them up
    download them
    explore
    and decide for yourself which ones work best for you

    My experience with this phone has been a learning curve. Every day I pick up something new or improve on something I already had.

    Your not going to "get it" all in one day

    g'luck!

    Brother, I have owned Blackberry's since the 8700 Series. I am just not used to some of these apps being talked about. That's all I am trying to say.

    Here is my opinion on must havs for me:

    QuickLaunch - Launch Websites, Email / SMS, Phone #'s, 3rd Party Apps, Music, Vids, Pics and more

    Nintaii - Verry addictive game

    Weatherbug - Works good on my phone

    Softreset - Does battery pull with out physically pulling the battery.

    Capture It - Helps if you have questions on storm for creating screen shots of your Storm.

    I'm trying to figure what mobile reader I want to get, but looking forward to that as well.

    Welcome to the Storm, I'm sure you will love it!!! I do!!

    Dude nobody had slacker on here! That is my most used app right now

    1. Slacker. (amazing streaming radio)
    2. Google maps (3.0.2 with GPS is so nice)
    3. Opera mini/Bolt (browsers that are much faster than the default)
    4. Weatherbug. (awesome for being free)
    5. Guitar tuner. (handy if you play guitar)

    I use these apps every day but am anxiously awaiting the app store!

    Hope that helps!

    I agree - Slacker is great!

    Google Maps
    Weatherbug (and for the person who said Weatherbug's forecast was limited, do you know that you can swipe sideways on a day and you get a more detailed forecast...and then you can swipe again and get hour by hour forecast? How is that not detailed enough?)

    what is the purpose/function of the youtube app? wouldn't you have the same functionality by going to m.youtube.com?

    The following I would consider essential:
    Weatherbug
    Google Maps
    Slacker

    The following I would highly recommend:
    AP Mobile News
    Poynt (although can be a bit redundant to google maps)
    Facebook
    Viigo

    Worth a try:
    Smartflicks
    Flycast

    Its my favorite app but it better be for $80:
    Garmin
