It’s 7:40am and my BlackBerry wakes me up to, The Killers – ‘Mr Brightside,’ thanks to the BBSmart Alarms Pro application. I fiddle around to unplug my Storm from the charger, swipe it unlocked using StormSlider and open up Viigo via QuickLaunch. With one eye open and the other one closed, I tap on ‘News & RSS’; After another 15-second sleep the channels are all updated and I read the newest headlines from BlackBerryCool, BerryReview, CrackBerry and CNN World. I find an interesting article and send it to Twitter via Viigo. While flipping through emails on the BlackBerry, I see one that has to get forwarded to another recipient – using Forward with Edit. Now I can still edit the forwarded message and send the corrected version.
Still half sleeping, I open up TwitterBerry to read the latest replies and update my status to: “Still in bed, let’s start this day slowly!” Now, it’s time to get up. I hit the shower, place the BlackBerry somewhere next to me and launch BerryTunes. I love listening to music while showering.
Now I’m ready to go! BerryWeather gets launched to see how the weather is going to be today. It’s going to rain so I grab a coat. I can’t decide what color of coat to wear so I open up Coin Toss and let the application make the choice. While leaving I look at the paintings hanging on the wall and realize that something is not right. I whip out my BlackBerry Storm again, launch Storm Level Pro and hold it against the picture-frame. The app tells me the pictures hangs ‘-2’ to the left, so I quickly shift it in position and rush out.
In the car, I turn on the radio and recognize the song playing but I have no idea what it’s called. No worries – with the BlackBerry still in my hand I flip to the Shazam application, tap on ‘Tag Now’ and after 20 seconds I have the title and artist. I place my BlackBerry in the middle console and start driving. Soon a call comes in, thanks to VibAndRing I hear it ringing while it vibrates – not firstly the vibration and only after that the ringtone. I squeeze the BlackBerry between my shoulder and ear because I need to change gears. Thanks to StormLock it doesn’t accidentally press the On-Screen Mute-Button.
After the call I am totally lost. I open up Google Maps to see where I’m actually driving. Soon on the correct road I get stuck in a massive traffic jam. Time to switch off the engine and open up the ‘Games’ folder. With my BrickBreaker highscore well over 78000 I find it the game a little boring. That’s why I go to BlackBerry App World and scroll through the Games list. It looks like the game Helicoper I found might be good. I paid, downloaded and am now ready to play it. It’s and awesome game, albeit a bit difficult at the beginning, but so addictive. The guy behind me already honks because the traffic jam has cleared up now. I put my BlackBerry away and continue driving.
Arrived at the office I take out my Storm, launch Whippoh, perform the whip-movement with my arm to make the cracking sound of a whip, and yell at some co-worker to make me a cup of coffee. I sit down at my desk and it’s time to relax again. FlighPath calms me down for the next 10 minutes.
My co-worker later comes up to me and brags about how fast he can type on his Storm. “Oh”, I say, “install TyperSpeed and let’s have a little competition.”
My co-worker brings me my coffee; I place the BlackBerry in front of me on the desk and slowly sip the coffee. All of a sudden the LED of my Storm starts flashing bright green, that’s BerryBuzz’s notification for a new email. It pops up the message thanks to PeeKaWho so I don’t even have to lift my BlackBerry to read the message. Finished with my coffee, I open StockManager to look at my latest stock.
Now, ready to do some real work!
Soon it’s 5pm and I can leave the office. After coming home I mix a drink using the Mobile Bartender application while listening to some music using FlipSide. I’m feeling hungry so I open up Where2Eat?™ to find the next restaurant close to me. I drive there and order my food, Wine of the Day helps me decide my Wine for the evening. While paying I launch EasyTip to calculate the tip the waiter gets (even if I could do it in my head, I think it’s much more fun to use an app for that). Returning home I open Viigo once again to check how my favorite soccer team played – they lost – time to let off some steam using Bubble Wrap. It’s time to go to bed; while setting up BBSmart Alarm Pro to wake me up a bit later tomorrow, MeterBerry reminds me that my application memory dropped below 5MB. I wonder why that happened. I click ‘Reboot now’ and we both take a beauty sleep.
