Applico let us know that they have launched a free wireless backup app for BlackBerry called Aurkon. Aurkon prides itself on being an “install and forget” solution, that lets you backup valuable information without ever having to plug in your BlackBerry.
Applico has released their NYC Transit application for BlackBerry. The application allows you to check multiple schedules, including those for the New York waterways, Metro North Trains, New Jersey Transit buses and New Jersey Transit trains.
With Applico’s BlackBerry app, you can see schedules without a network connection because the schedules are downloaded locally to your BlackBerry when you install. The app will even remember your last route traveled, in case you forgot how to get where you were.
Download the NYC Transit App from your BlackBerry browser.
[ED NOTE: Sorry, this app isn't free. It's $5. Thanks for sending in the update. Also, this app is geared towards commuters so it won't be too helpful for local residents.]
