There is no question that we BlackBerry users are at a disadvantage when it comes applications as compared to users of other smartphone platforms like the iPhone and Android. The list of reasons that this is the case is long and, at the end of the day, RIM has simply got to do better when it comes to BlackBerry applications. There are,however, several BlackBerry applications that should have been developed and released a long time ago, and, I personally am just plain tired of waiting on them…
LinkedIn for BlackBerry
I know that LinkedIn for BlackBerry is currently being worked on and only has been in the “coming soon” category since last November, but, this is an application that should have come out a long time ago.
For those of you not familiar with LinkedIn, think Facebook for business professionals. My guess is just about every BlakBerry touting LinkedIn member that logs in more than once per week would download LinkedIn for BlackBerry.
Release the dang thing already!
SlingPlayer Mobile For BlackBerry Storm
I know making an application for BlackBerry devices with keyboards and then remaking the same application for the Storm and Storm2 can be a chore, but, c’mon SlingMedia. It makes no for there still to be no SlingPlayer Mobile for the BlackBerry Storm.
I would argue the the BlackBerry to give users the most enjoyable viewing experience is the Storm or Storm2. I can’t speak for everyone one a SlingBox and a BlackBerry Storm, but, there is no question that you would get another $30 out of me if you just released SlingPlayer Mobile for the BlackBerry Storm.
Many would argue that the best BlackBerry Twitter application out there is the one that you cannot get. Social Scope has been in a state of perpetual closed beta for what seems like forever. Many of the BlackBerry users accepted into the Social Scope beta program can’t get the latest version of the beta, which from what I am told is the best Twitter application, bar none.I am beginning to wonder if Social Scope has missed it’s window to become a huge success because there are several free BlackBerry Twitter clients that are, not only free, but quite good.
Just off the top of my head I can think of dozens on BlackBerry applications that should exist, but, don’t. To new a few more there is TweetDeck for BlackBerry, Xobni for BlackBerry, Gowalla for BlackBerry, etc, etc, etc. I know that there are many more that I am not thinking of, so, I you have a BlackBerry application that you are tired of waiting on, let us know about it in the comments.
