BlackBerry Desktop Manager comes with tethering feature



The German ninja at benezblog has leaked the upcoming BlackBerry Desktop Manager which is rumored to be bundled with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 aka the BlackBerry Onyx.

Desktop Manager comes with a new feature that allows you to easily set up your BlackBerry as a modem so you can tether it to your laptop. It seems to be working but some users are having issues connecting. This is leaked software so all the kinks haven’t been worked out. If you’re unable to connect, you may still have to use an existing tethering solution such as TetherBerry.

Included with the rumor is a leaked copy of Desktop Manager, which includes the modem feature.

Try it out for yourself. Are you able to tether your laptop and your BlackBerry?

HD Digital BlackBerry theme with free wallpaper expansion pack


HedoneDesign have a nice theme up called Digital. The icons look really slick and you can get 8 additional wallpapers in the Expansion Pack.

Higher models (8900, 9000, 9500 and 9600 series) can toggle the homescreen’s navigation panel. By closing the panel, you can enjoy the background wallpaper in all its splendor. This theme also allows for quick navigation to regularly used items such as the Clock, Options and Manage Network Connections.

The new Digital from HedoneDesign is made for the 8300, 8350, 8500, 8700, 8800, 8900, 9000, 9500 and 9600 BlackBerry devices. You can purchase it for $6.99.

New Focus premium BlackBerry theme from Elecite


Elecite have a new theme called Focus. It features 10 HDR nature photos that circulate in the background each hour, much like the Urban theme.

The homescreen is the most unique part of this theme, with a circular arrangement of 8 customizable icons. Overall, this theme looks like it would be best for Storm users, but trackball users will love it too. Also, combining nature and technology always makes for a nice Ying and Yang.

Focus is available for $6.99 for the BlackBerry Storm, Bold, 8900 Curve, 96xx Tour, 8520 and even the 8350i.

Add BlackBerry contacts from your email with AddresSave



Our buddy Fabian just put out his latest app, AddresSave, which automatically takes contact info from your email and adds it to your address book.

As you probably know, there are other apps out there that do something similar such as Gwabbit. One thing I like about AddresSave, that isn’t included in Gwabbit, is the option to set a “block” list. With this option, you avoid unnecessary entries.

As this is a new application, it would be interesting to see how well it can sniff out redundancies over a long period of usage.

AddresSave is available for $1.49 until September 4th (normally $2.99).

Recover your stolen device with BlackBerry ER


The makers of PocketMac have launched a new app for BlackBerry called BlackBerry ER. Their latest app is aimed at users who have lost their BlackBerry and are looking to get it back.

The app helps you identify the thief who stole your BlackBerry and gives you their location. Besides offering GPS coordinates of the thief’s location, BlackBerry ER will also also text users with the details of the thief’s identity, including phone number, IMSI number and more.

BlackBerry ER is available now for $14.97.
