Top 10 BlackBerry ringtones vs Top 10 chart topping mp3’s

Comments

top10ringtones

BlackBerry Cool has a ringtone page you might have already checked out: BlackBerryCool.com/Ringtones. The store is powered by Thumbplay and it shows you the current Top 10 ringtones on their network. I like the Thumbplay service as both a ringtone provider and a full track download system.

Some songs are great ringtones and some are great songs, isn’t it best to buy a track that’s both?

Audible.com is now available as a BlackBerry application. The app lets you shop, sample, download, and playback audio from Audible’s catalog. The application is free, and it’s compatible with the BlackBerry Storm, Bold, Curve 83xx, Pearl and 8800.

If you download the application, you receive a free copy of Thomas Friedman’s Hot, Flat and Crowded audiobook.

FlipSide goes live

Comments

FlipSideAny of you guys get a chance to try out that MP3-player app last month? Well, the beta is done, and the commercial version is live. This is a great little music app, letting you queue up a playlist, get album art and info, as well as some cool swooshy browsing options and easy to use keypad shortcuts. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be reading my WMA files, so it’s probably safe to assume this is an MP3-only thing. Also, there isn’t a way of fast-forwarding or rewinding to search particular tracks, so you’ve got to take the good with the bad. Having used it for awhile now, I’d say it’s worth it. Check out more information here.

GotVoice joins ISV Alliance

Comment

GotVoice announced today their membership in the BlackBerry Independent Software Vendor Alliance. The ISV Alliance is RIM’s way of getting all the great BlackBerry software developers under their wing, which means better BlackBerry apps for all. Man, if only Apple could show the same love, huh? GotVoice’s service is integrated right into BlackBerry’s phone, and lets you do some handy things with voicemail.

“BlackBerry smartphone users can receive their carrier voicemail messages as an email with an MP3 attachment* or through GotVoice’s Visual Voicemail interface, which integrates within the BlackBerry phone application for easy management of voicemail*. GotVoice voicemail to text service is also now available for BlackBerry smartphone users, providing another option for customers seeking a converged messaging solution.”

BIS 2.4 coming this Saturday?

Comments

RIMWe know some of you have been giggling in anticipation of BIS 2.4. Well, MiBlackberry has spotted a rumor that 2.4 is coming out tomorrow, September 15th. We’ve been over the supposed features, most notably vCard, MP3, PDF and RTF support, improved Yahoo! mail sync, delivery and read receipts, and wireless message deletion. Also, it looks like you’ll automatically be logged into your BIS from your handheld - no need to muck around with usernames and passwords, unless you’re looking to do anything from your computer. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled on our BIS to see if this

BIS 2.4 features posted on RIM knowledgebase

Comment

RIMJibi has spotted a hint on the forums of the BlackBerry Internet Service v.2.4 features list on RIM’s knowledgebase. Highlights include vCard, MP3, PDF and RTF support, improved Yahoo! mail sync, delivery and read receipts, as well as wireless message deletion. Hmm, a lot of these sound like they were supposed to be in 2.3, weren’t they? Rumor has it we’ll be seeing the upgrade released before the end of the month.

Full features behind the jump.

Web-based ringtone conversion

Comments

BlackBerrySync dug up a handy little web app by Cellsea which lets you upload audio files right from your desktop or through an existing URL, and cut it up for BlackBerry ringtoney goodness. Best of all? Free! There’s already over 20,000 ringtones uploaded by users, for your browsing pleasure. I gave the thing a shot and it hunky-dory. For quick and dirty ringtones, this is a great solution.

MP3 ringtones finally come to BlackBerry

Comments

BplayBplay’s recently announced the release of a wooping 15,000+ MP3 ringtones for sale. BlackBerry’s a little behind in the consumer game, where MP3 ringtones have been around for a good long time already on most other mobiles, and not so much on our slightly more conservative handhelds. With the likes of the Curve and Pearl sexifying the BlackBerry scene with polyphonic ringtone support, it’s high time someone started taking advantage of it. Of course Bplay’s got the usual games and whatnot - I’ve been hitting Brain Up a fair bit lately, myself.
