Cocky Culture recently came out with a couple themes that give you the full version of the theme for free and then after 3 hours will put a watermark on the theme asking you to upgrade to the premium. These themes are great because you can get the full version of the theme to check out what it’s like, and if you don’t mind the watermark you can continue to use it without paying. Of course, if the watermark bothers you, you can always pay to upgrade. Hit the links and try and check them out.

Foursquare for BlackBerry is now officially 3.0 and it features an overhauled UI and deals from LivingSocial, Gilt City, BuyWithMe, YP.com, and zozi. The app also now has a full leaderboard to see what your friends are doing and the next update will include BBM integration.
The problem with Foursquare has always been that the effort required to checkin somewhere never really had any significant reward. Sure, you could tell your friends where you are, but if they’re really your friends they probably know. You also might get some reward from telling your Twitter and Facebook followers where you are, but they actually don’t care. There is nothing worse than seeing someone in your Twitter stream checkin to some errand they’re running as though anyone actually cares about the minutia in their day.

Foursquare let us know that they’ve updated the BlackBerry app to include support for AmEX specials. The AmEX specials include deals such as “spend at least $5 at a local merchant in Austin, and get a $5 savings applied directly to your monthly statement.” To set up your Foursquare account for AmEX specials, do the following:
- link your AmEx and foursquare accounts (you can do it here);
- check in at a participating store and tap ‘load to card’ on the Special; and,
- pay with your AmEx card.
Two exciting items of excitement to report from Bplay HQ this week. First off, they’ve got one of Magmic’s newest themes called Space: 1999. I’ve been running it on my 9700 for the last week and a half, and I absolutely love it. I’ve also tested this them on other devices including the Torch 9800, and it runs beautifully. It takes space inspired animations and comic book style art to the next level. It goes completely against your standard Zen and Today style themes, and adds an element of artsiness that seems to have become rare in the world of BlackBerry themes. We’re not all suit-dummies, you know. Fans of the past ‘Propaganda‘ theme from Magmic will definitely love this theme.
Secondly (but not less importantly), Bplay sent out an email to all of its subscribers letting them know that Glu Mobile, makers of Call of Duty: Black Ops Mobile and Family Feud Mobile, has slashed their prices on a number of their top selling titles. Some of those games include the aforementioned ones, Blur Racing, World Series Poker, and many more. This sale will last throughout the month on June.
Today and Tuesday we’re running a promotion for the top selling BlackBerry apps by category. There are over 25 apps to choose from and they’re all on sale. Some of the Cyber Monday and Tuesday deals include: Tether, SmrtGuard, SmartWiFi, GPS Guru, Xobni, PocketDay Pro, Pinball Deluxe, and more.
Bplay has started their Black Friday sale early with 40% off all games, themes and apps with the coupon code BLACK (use it before you check out). I’m sure many of you in the US are enjoying Thanksgiving dinner right about now and can’t be bothered shopping, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t get our shop on. Happy Deals and Meals!
Head over to Bplay.com and use the coupon code “BLACK”.
