Default Free TODAY SCREEN program for BlackBerry! (PocketPC style)

I thought it would be cool to have something similiar for the BlackBerry, so here it is. You can download this totally free program from:

Download BBToday from this thread [Link Edited]

or OTA with your BlackBerry at:

Sorry, OTA Version No Longer Available [Nonworking Link Removed]

This app will override the ribbon on startup of your BB. You can always put it in the background with ESC or exit completely using the menu. Currently it has 5 plugins showing the following info: date/time, email summary, battery/signal info, next appt today, next task due today.

The email, appt and task plugins can be selected and by clicking on the trackwheel you can jump to the appropriate apps.

This program is totally free but as always if you love it and would like to make a donation then [email address] is the place

I've physically tested only on a 7230 but any 7XXX series should be fine. The 5XXX and 6XXX series will work but the screen resolution is lower so won't look as nice. You also need V4.0 of the OS.

Enjoy, Chris Miles
