Cram v.1.1 Reviewed!


Cram reviewed

Whether you’ve been looking for an application to help you get through those midterms, finals, LSATs, MCATs, PhD comps, SmartServe exams, or you want something that will improve your product knowledge for work, SimpleLeap’s Cram will help you tackle them all. Launched in July of this year, Cram is a quiz builder that is designed to help you study quickly and absorb a great deal of information – with your BlackBerry.

Some of you may remember the Student Starter Pack, which allowed you to buy Cram and StudentDocket (a great scheduling application, one all students will find useful) as a package deal. Well, you can still get the two together for a reasonable $24.85 (over $5.00 off!) from our online store, so be sure to check out my review of StudentDocket as well!

StudentDocket v.1.0.809 Reviewed!


Student Docket

Some of you may remember Simon’s review of StudentBerry, a premier tasking application designed specifically for students with BlackBerry devices. To be fair, some of you may not.

Now called StudentDocket, this application aims to help students organize their tasks, projects and assignments, allowing users to view them in an eye-pleasing, well-organized fashion. For all you students out there, this is a must-have, and since it’s being sold in a bundle package with Cram for a limited time (you can still get the two together for a reasonable $24.85), there’s no better occasion to pick up these two academic tools in time for next semester.

BBSmart Alarms Pro v.1.24 Reviewed!


Alarms Pro

Some of you may remember BBSmart form their HTML Email Viewer – another great product we reviewed earlier this year. Well back in April, they released their Alarms Pro app – a huge step up from the default alarm app provided by the BlackBerry OS.

Well, if you’re thinking of buying yourself that $30.00 alarm clock radio at The Source, think again. BBSmart Alarms Pro v.1.24 allows you to set multiple alarms for multiple days with multiple sounds, saving you multiple dollars. Multiple.

Nintaii v.1.0.9 Reviewed!



Though I wasn’t a big fan of their Poker Odds Calculator Pro, I really like Mobigloo’s Nintaii for BlackBerry. Some of you may remember us mentioning Nintaii back in October when we discussed the finalists for  the BlackBerry Developer Challenge. ‘Nintai,’ a Japanese Kanji that means “patience” offers users a great experience from start to finish – if you can, that is. It’s easy to install, and there’s virtually no setup. The controls are easy to learn and operate. And, there are about 100 different levels (of increasing difficulty), so with a little perserverance this game may in fact teach you all about the meaning of patience.

VibAndRing v.1.1 for BlackBerry Reviewed!


Many of us are pretty dissatisfied with RIM’s choice to leave out a “vibe and ring” option in the BlackBerry OS. Fabian Heuwieser, the maker of popular applications like Email Display On and SMS Display On brings us VibAndRing, an application designed to fill this gap.

VibAndRing does exactly that: makes your BlackBerry vibrate and ring at the same time, whenever you receive an incoming call.
