5 must have free BlackBerry downloads…

Chances are that if you are reading this you did some type of search for Free BlackBerry Downloads or Free BlackBerry Applications.  After more the two and a half years of this being one of our most popular posts, we’ve had to update it a few times.  Below you will find several of our more recent Free BlackBerry Download type posts…  Happy Downloading…

Original post below…

I was just thinking about the applications that I use most frequently on my BlackBerry and what I realized was that with the exception of the address book, the majority of them are free downloads.

That has prompted me to write this post and share with you what I believe to be 5 must have free BlackBerry downloads:

  1. BlackBerry Messenger — I am not going to tell you that BlackBerry Messenger is the best Free IM client for the BlackBerry, but, I am going to tell you that it is a must have free BlackBerry download because all BlackBerry users can use it.
  2. Google Maps — Google Maps is a nifty little app that allows you to easily search for businesses and get directions to and from, show you the location on a map, and even give you a satellite picture of the area. If you are looking for a Pizza parlor you could search for pizza with your zip code and all the matching results will be returned in an easy to navigate interface. One of the really cool features is that you can call the the business you searched for right from the Google Maps application.
  3. BlackBerry Push Weather — This is a neat little application that I really don’t even think about, however, get useful information from it everyday. BlackBerry Push Weather is exactly what it sounds like… an application that gets weather updates pushed directly onto your device. You can have weather updates sent to you as a message or have a browser channel appear on your homepage. You can download BlackBerry Push Weather directly to your BlackBerry by visiting http://mobile.blackberry.com/mss/category_push from you devices browser.
  4. Spider Solitaire — This is a free Solitaire game that can be found on the free game download area of the mobile.blackberry.com site provided by Magmic, Inc. Personally, this game has been the cause of countless hours of lost productivity
  5. Yahoo! Messenger for BlackBerry and Google Talk for BlackBerry — I know that these are really two applications so just think of one of them as a bonus. Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk are both free instant messaging clients for the BlackBerry. Both BlackBerry clients have the ability to communicate with both desktop versions of these applications and other BlackBerry versions seamlessly. I know that not everyone uses these clients, but if you do, they are definitely must haves.

This wraps up my list of 5 must have free blackberry downloads, however, I am sure that there are others that should be on the list. If you know of a good free BlackBerry download feel free to let us know in the comments.

    Blackberry phones have the slowest internet in the whole world !!!!!!!!! Blackberry phones have spy software on them straight from the factory to spy on every one that uses them ; they follow where you are ,and can hear all the converstaions in the immediate area of where you are located. Even if you cut your phone off, they can still remotely cut it back on and record all sounds in your house or building. The United States government has been doing this every since George Bush gave the feds the right to wire tap any and every body in the United States with out a court order !!!!!!!!!
