I’m just looking to broaden my BlackBerry app horizon, and I need some ideas. What do you guys think are great apps for the BB and why? :]

@The_Compassionate_Heretic I just got that. I’m kind of tired and don’t feel like looking through it. I’d rather just have peoples opinions. Ha.

Pandora

internet radio that you customize, completely free. takes up a lot of juice though so I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t have unlimited internet.

I have an iPhone so thats the best I can do right now.

All the google apps – google search, google maps, google sync, etc.

we had this chat on twitter too, so you know some of my other suggestions. :)

@eponymoushipster Thank you again. And yes, we did!

@chelseababyy did you download Ubertwitter yet?

oh and it’s worth mentioning, they upgraded the Facebook BB app to 1.6 this week, and it’s a MAJOR improvement if you use FB of course. :)

chelseababyy's avatar

@eponymoushipster Already got the new FB app. And I’m gonna download Uber in a few

@chelseababyy ok, cool. you have google talk/aim/yahoo messenger i assume, too?

chelseababyy's avatar

I have aim, but I’m never really on it much.

@chelseababyy oh. nvm then. :) i have, uhm, a weather app that’s cool. it puts the current conditions as the icon, and when you select the app, you can view the 5-day forecast.

i’m apparently a very old man.

chelseababyy's avatar

That’s pretty awesome. What’s it called?

eponymoushipster's avatar

dunno. i got it off of AppWorld. it’s the Weather network app.

chelseababyy's avatar

I will search for it!

Viigo is the one that I use most, very handy.

memory boost. it costs like 6 bucks and well worth it.

it works better than the standard memory cleaner and your BB will run faster and better.

you can find it on blackberry app world

I would suggest SocialScope for Twitter on the BB.

You should also check out Poynt for blackberry. It uses your location and you can look up business addresses/numbers, people, and movies. It even maps it for you for directions. Very cool. Never again will I pay 1.79 for a 411 call again.

@seekingwolf So I really really want SocialScope, and have been trying to get in on it, but can’t get an invite, or whatever it is that you need. Totally bummed about that.

DarkScribe's avatar

If you fill out their request on the the SocialScope website you get an invite within a day or two. I got one when it first went into Beta, but beyond playing on the first couple of days, don’t do much with it. I think that it will be good for some, but for people like me who don’t really find things like Facebook and Twitter to have value, it is “just another app”. I have dedicated Facebook and Twitter apps on the BlackBerry already and only use those to tease my kids on the odd occasion – “Daddy’s watching” sort of thing. My wife uses the (SocialScope) app though, as she is a Facebook regular with our kids and various girlfriends.

@chelseababyy

I’m sorry to hear that :( Don’t give up though! I know some people who had to wait a while but eventually got in. Since they released “SocialScope Lite” version for the beta testers, I’ve noticed that they are letting more people in so don’t give up! :)

If SocialScope is a no-go I would suggest UberTwitter. It has a nice UI and is fun to use.

@DarkScribe I tried joining months ago, but still haven’t gotten an invite :(. I just facebook and twitter religiously considering I live 1200+ miles from ALL of my family.

@seekingwolf I have UberTwitter :D I love it, but I reaaaaaaaally want SS. Lol, I’m still awaiting that golden invite!
