The BlackBerry Developer Conference this year featured the BlackBerry Final 16, where 16 great apps were chosen as the best in App World. The first presenter was Ted Livingston from Unysnced who rebranded their music service as Kik, an awesome DRM-free MP3 player.

The app gives you 3 free plays of any song, and also lets you send it to a friend to hear as well. If you like the song, you can continue to listen to it after your 3 free plays, in exchange for listening to a brief ad. You can also purchase the song right from your BlackBerry.

Everyone who signed up at Dev Con have been getting notifications that Kik will launch in January for Canadians with the US soon to follow.

Sign up for notifications at the Kik site.

New music player for BlackBerry Unsynced aims to outperform Apple

A little less than a year ago, Jim Balsillie was given a lot of criticism for saying that the BlackBerry platform will beat out Apple when it comes to media. There hasn’t been much development on the native music player and while it serves the basic purpose, there’s a lot that could be improved.

This is where BlackBerry has the advantage over iPhone. Apple would never let another company try and compete with their native applications such as the browser, but RIM welcomes third party software. The latest BlackBerry media solution is from Unsynced, an all-in-one music experience for BlackBerry that the company promises will one day make all of your Apple friends jealous.

Some of the features of Unsycned include:

  • Painstaking care has been taken to ensure Unsynced Music is efficient and predictable.
  • The Unsync button will capture song information. Unsynced does a search on their end and e-mail you the most relevant results so that you won’t forget to “purchase” it when you get home.
  • Use any PC to drag and drop music into folders on your BlackBerry using Mass Storage Mode. Listen to your newly added songs through Browse Files, or quickly create new playlists through Create/Modify Playlists, giving you the freedom to add to your music experience not just at home, but wherever you go.
  • Progress indicators for those long podcasts.
  • Customizable color themes to match your style.
  • Send song info to friends to share your tastes.
