    Blackberry App Question

    Just got a Blackberry Tour. This is my first Blackberry and I'm loving it. What are some of the apps/features that you can't live without and what do they do? I keep stumbling upon things that I love, but I'm sure there's some things out there that I'd never run across.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Blackberry App Question

    My wife has a Pearl and I immediately grabbed the Opera browser. SOOO much better than the BB browser that came on the phone. Not sure if that would apply to the Tour or not.

    Re: Blackberry App Question

    Just got a Tour myself.

    I have the following (all free):
    Blackberry App World
    Poynt
    Google Maps
    ScoreMobile Blackberry
    WeatherBug
    Opera Mini

    I removed some games as I don't play on my cellphone (just don't travel enough - probably not bad to have if you fly more). I have several other Apps that came with the phone, but I haven't used them (Slacker Radio, Video Camera, etc.).

    Re: Blackberry App Question

    I just replaced my World with the Tour this week also. So far I have: Blackberry App World
    Poynt (The GPS is very accurate...wish it had audio commands)
    Google Maps

    Also, I bought a Body Glove...seems like a good buy too for protection when you drop it.

    Re: Blackberry App Question

    Oh and my one suggestion - Quickpull. I also like Meterberry, Poynt, Quicklaunch, Slacker Radio, and Patternlock. But I've got the Storm, so Patternlock won't work for the tour.

    Tried to get KeePass setup on my BB but it kept saying it couldn't open the database. Didn't have time to look into that one much. If anyone has successfully gotten the database replication to work properly from their desktop to their Blackberry so they could open the password database on their BB, please PM me and let me know what you did.

    Edit: I have a BB Curve through Verizon...

    Re: Blackberry App Question

    amaZe is a decent free GPS software. It gives you voice turn by turn.

    Otherwise like has been mentioned: Opera Mini (wednesday a new beta version of Opera Mini was released, not liking it so far but it's still early), Pandora, Beyond411 are a couple I use a lot.

    Re: Blackberry App Question

    What's the advantage of using the Gmail app over the BB's built-in email app?

    Blackberry is one of the worst phones as far as radiation output. You are going to get cancer!!!

    Literally 2 hours ago I hit the Slacker Radio site from my phone - it said it doesn't support my device (which is a Pearl).
