Blackberry Must Have Applications


  1. Karen's Replicator and its not even a Blackberry handheld application.  It's a desktop application for backing up your microSD card and other files you have. She has other power tools too so check them out.   
  2. Ascendo Data Vault or Cryptmagic Data Vault - review here.
  3. Quicklaunch - instant shortcuts
  4. Telenav - read the review here.
  5. Google Maps - from your BB Browser
  6. REXwireless ToDoMatrix and RexConnect - Advanced task manager for the BlackBerry - review here.
  7. BBWeather   (this is an OTA link) is a great weather application from the Weather Channel.  You can configure and use shortcuts for different locations based on zip codes.  You have a choice of colors and the numbers of days forecast.  You can toggle the current conditions and the forecast with the space bar.  In a recent update by Tateu from the forums, you can now use Alt-space to refresh the weather report and the locations are sorted alphabetically, not by when you entered them.  You can set the refresh times also.  While there are others, I always seem to go back to this one.
  8. QuickText - Use this for short cut textings. 

  9. JiveTalk IM -multi network IM
  10. Facebook
  11. Where is one of the more interesting GPS applications I have seen of late.  Give it a try.  WHERE™ is a location-based application chock-full of widgets that deliver essential information about what's around you. Are you looking for the hottest restaurants, jonesing for your next coffee fix, or running dangerously low on gas and need a cheap fill-up? Maybe you just want to connect with some friends. Whatever you're after, WHERE delivers the best in local information from Eventful, Yelp, GasBuddy, Zipcar, ShopLocal, Starbucks, Buddy Beacon® and more.
