Cozi is a calendar and organization system designed for families. The app lets you manage your family calendar, shopping lists, and to do lists while you’re on the go. This app is great if you and your wife/spouse don’t both have BlackBerrys, but if you do, you should obviously be doing all of this in a BlackBerry Messenger Group. That’s how Power Couples roll. Features of Cozi include:
- Manage the family schedule from wherever you are. Add an appointment and upload it to your Cozi account so the whole family can see it.
- Get your shopping lists while you’re at the grocery store—no more coming home with everything but the one thing you needed.
- Add a to do list item right when you think of it, and access from your phone or home computer.

Ronen spotted a new free app on the recently-revamped mobile BlackBerry site which seriously extends the default Password Keeper app. It’s almost stepping up to Ascendo Datavault, what with all its categories and fields available. Very cool stuff, and hard to argue with free, eh? Head on over here on your mobile to get the download.
According to a recent survey by FusionOne, over half of respondents said that losing their mobile device would cause their social life to suffer, and would be more painful than a breakup or having a cavity filled. Now, as BlackBerry users, it’s easy to imagine our professional lives taking a kick in the teeth if our BlackBerry was misplaced, but do our social lives revolve around these little gizmos too? The biggest factor in the social importance of mobiles lied in contact management – while 70% of subscribers rated contacts backup as very or extremely important, a whooping 67% admitted to not actually doing it. The BlackBerry 9000 is rumored to have microSD backup included with it, which would go a long way to address the demand shown in this survey. Replacing things like ringtones and pictures also rated fairly high on users’ priorities.
