Free BlackBerry app automatically launches apps upon startup



There are some applications that want to automatically start when you reboot your device because they’re an integral part of your BlackBerry experience.

Start Me Up allows you to select applications that you want to automatically start up but don’t do it on their own. This is a great way to add additional functionality to apps that you enjoy using.

A cool feature of this product is that it allows you to set delay times. If an app requires a network connection, you can adjust the delay time to allow your device to connect to the network before the device is launched.


* Automatic start up for apps that don’t include this feature
* Runs applications in background while launching
* Small size and does not run in background constantly

Get Start Me Up for free for your BlackBerry.

Save money on your voice plan with a simple free BlackBerry app



Some carriers are really harsh when it comes to voice plans and will bill you an extra minute for going even a second over 60. With Fabian’s latest free app, you get a short vibration after every 55 seconds into each outgoing call so that you know when a new minute will start.

By using this app, you’ll know that you aren’t being charged for extra minutes. It’s an easy way to save on your voice plan.

Download MinuteSaver for free for your BlackBerry.

Free BlackBerry call reminder app works with calendar and messages



Recently, Fabian was on Twitter asking about what new BlackBerry application to make. I’m not sure if this is the product of that vote but if it was, it’s an incredibly fast turn around. His latest app is called LaterDude and the app allows you to set reminders to call someone back.

From your Call Log or from your Messages application (on some devices, both work, on others only one works) you select an entry, press Menu then ‘Remind me later!’ and now a selection pops up when you want to get notified again about calling back.

It creates a calendar entry at the selected time and date. Make sure that you set the following in the Calendar-Options:

1. Open up the Calendar
2. Click Menu then Options
3. General Options
4. Default Reminder
5. Set it to 0 min.

Download LaterDude for free for your BlackBerry.
