Best: Evernote

This is the BlackBerry version of a nifty free [[xref:|note-taking service|Use Evernote to Organize Your Troubleshooting Efforts]] that's available for most common desktop and mobile platforms. Evernote on the BlackBerry lets you create notes in text, voice recordings, images, and general file downloads, and then it synchronizes them to your Evernote desktop (and vice versa). While the desktop app allows you to save Web pages as notes (by clicking on a menu item that the Evernote software installs), the BlackBerry app doesn’t support that feature. You can, however, view pages you've saved with the desktop app, and find them using the BlackBerry app's search box. The app and the service are free, so long as you keep within a monthly upload allowance of 40MB.
