BlackBerry Cool Roundup for the Week of March 8th

Comments

In terms of news I’d say it was a slow week for the BlackBerry Nation. On the bright side, there were some great apps that launched in both App World and the BlackBerryCool store. SmrtGuard-Free launched in App World, as well as Rove’s Mobile SSH for BlackBerry. Foursquare was also updated to version 1.7.0 with visual enhancements and tips features, and you can find them on App World now too.

Also worth mentioning is that BlackBerryCool currently has SIX contests on the go where winners haven’t yet been chosen. I’m going to choose winners for some of the older contests before Monday morning so make sure you’re entered in all six.
