Free BlackBerry Apps: Your Smartphone's 10 New Best Friends

CIO.com's BlackBerry-watcher Al Sacco offers up details for ten of his favorite, free BlackBerry smartphone applications

True BlackBerry lovers, or "CrackBerry" addicts, if you will, can never have too many BlackBerry apps.

This steady demand for apps is no secret, and nary a week goes by that I don't some see some BlackBerry blog or mobile site offer up its "Best BlackBerry Apps" list. But most of these posts profile "commercial" applications that you have to buy.

Sure, plenty of BlackBerry software is well worth the scratch developers charge for it. And you can call me "cheap," but it's sticks and stones that break this blogger's bones; I'd much rather get a valuable app for free than dish out cash.

On that note, I've compiled a list of ten free BlackBerry applications that I use regularly. Every one is worthwhile—and you won't have to part with a single dime.

I know some BlackBerry users prefer to avoid BlackBerry App World, RIM's software store, and some of you folks reside in locations where App World's not available. So I've provided non-App-World download links where possible.

Happy app-ing!

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
