Cool Stuff I Installed On My BlackBerry This Week (3-20-09)

In our second edition of Cool Stuff I Installed On My BlackBerry This Week for the week ending 3-20-09, we’ll take a look at a couple of BlackBerry Themes, two new internet radio clients, a weather application updated for the BlackBerry Storm, and a local search utility for the BlackBerry.

Gears of War BlackBerry ThemeGears of War Theme

I am a big time Gears of War fan so I admit that my opinion my be a bit biased, however, I believe that the Gears of War theme for the BlackBerry Storm is one of the best looking free BlackBerry Storm themes that I’ve seen.  Gears of War comes in two flavors, Standard and Today, and both flavors can be download directly to your device using the links below.

Gears of War — Standard
Gears of War — Today

Gears or War is a free BlackBerry Theme, however, it’s create does accept donations…

Ascarii 2.0

Ascarii 2.0 will set you back $6.99 but it is one of the best looking BlackBerry Themes that I’ve seen.

    Dude, that Gears of War Theme is sweet. I just installed it. What was the weather application that you mentioned? I think you forgot to add the download link to it.

  • Robb Dunewood


    The application that I was referring to is WeatherEye.

  • Jenk

    I think I like WeatherBug better.

  • FitzAZ

    Have you checked out the cross bar themes from the same company? They are awesome.

  • Tim

    How did you load weathereye as of the ways available are working for me? I tried downloading it to the PC, using SMS, you cannot use a non-canadian phone number……please share how you load your copy. Thanks

  • Tom

    Hey, will the Gears of War theme work on the Bold?

  • Robb Dunewood


    Visit on your devices browser. Select the appropriate link for you device. It downloads directly to your device.

    Didn’t like weather eye too much. More comfortable with just the weather channel app. but the the gears was pretty cool though!

    Hello thanks for all the great info on BlackBerry!I was wondering if someone would know if the OS 4.7.103 upgrade for the storm can be done ota?I’m running .75 and hate it!thought of going to the iphone!

  • mama

    Someone mentioned that MaraTick was available for the BB Storm 9530, but I tried it & it didn’t work well at all for me…it worked wonders on my Curve. By far that app. is my favorite & would be wonderful if it worked on the Storm especially since there aren’t many free list making apps. out yet for the storm…I found 4 free grocery list apps. & didn’t like any of them…does anyone know of a good free grocery list app. that works on the Storm? Has anyone tried maratick and had luck with it on their storm? Thanks in advance!!

  • mama

    BTW….I really enjoy the wealth of info. you have on this site…keep up the excellent job!

    Unfortunately, none of the leaked OS upgrades can be done OTA. I will say, though, that upgrading the Storm through Desktop Manager is actually pretty damn easy. I was scared at first, but it was extremely simple.


    That is a cool skin!


    Nice skin!, it gave me some ideas for a skin im going to attempt to make.
