It’s important to keep in mind that many of these apps will not work for your device. The reason for which is the same reason why I wrote “apps you may not have.” They are apps developed in a very whimsical fashion by independent developers. Think of them as the Indie Rock of BlackBerry development.


MaraTick was written by Ted Regsuren to help reduce paper waste and it’s named after his daughter Mara. The app has a shopping list and to do functionality. The more people who use it, the better it will serve it’s purpose.

    Dig the theme in that image - what is it called?

  3. 3 amermofo

    i think its the vodafone theme

    Looks like he’s on the AT&T network, I’m pretty sure that’s the default AT&T theme. Much better looking than my Sprint theme.

    I’d add a few more of my favorites:

    1). Google Suite: Gmail, Google Talk, Google Maps, Google Sync, and Google Mobile
    2). GymTechnik
    3). Viigo
    4). WSJ Mobile Reader
    5). Nimbuzz: great for aggregating AOL, MSN, GTalk, etc. It’s the only one I’ve found that also includes Skype
    6). Joe Krill’s YouMail app
    7). MobiPocket Reader
    8). FlyCast for internet radio
    9). 123 Spoof to hide your phone number and slip into voicemail without having to talk to the person. Very similar to Slydial, but it’s free
    10). Remember the Milk to integrate your Blackberry with your online to do list. If you integrate RTM to Google Calendar you’ll really be in business
    11). Vlingo is the best voice to text application I’ve ever seen
