The best White Pages and Yellow Pages search software for the BlackBerry, this also has a built-in bonus of movie showtimes lookup and weather lookup!

BBReply

Desktop Link: sourceforge.net/projects/blackberrytools
Ever wish you have multiple different editable "Reply-To:" addresses when writing emails on the BlackBerry? This is the solution - you can now have customizable Reply-To: when writing emails on BlackBerry.

BBLight
Wireless Link: blackberrytools.sourceforge.net/OverTheAir/bblight-1.82/BBLight.jad
Desktop Link: sourceforge.net/projects/blackberrytools
Configures your BlackBerry light to stay always-on when out of holster. Or automatically turns on backlight when you hit a keypress (a problem on older BlackBerry models)! Be warned, this application affects battery life!
.


BBWeather
Wireless Link: blackberrytools.sourceforge.net/OverTheAir/bbweather-0.74/BBWeather.jad
Desktop Link: sourceforge.net/projects/blackberrytools
Display weather forecasts on BlackBerry on one button click, much faster than BlackBerry Browser. For entering a new city into this weather forecast application, you need an 8-character city code. (The city code is 4 capital letters followed by 4 numbers. Just grab those codes matching this pattern from inside the URL's when viewing weather forecasts at www.weather.com or www.theweathernetwork.com on your desktop PC, and save the 8 character code into the BBWeather software, and viola.)
.
QuickCompose
Wireless Link: www.marky.com/files/bb/QuickCompose.jad
Desktop Link: blackberryforums.com/showthread.php?t=25495
One hotkey access ("C" key) to immediately composing a blank new email message. Requires BlackBerryOS 4.1 or later. This readds the missing Compose icon from earlier BlackBerryOS software, while using the new convenient New Email interface of OS 4.1. Free utility written by Mark Rejhon (based on Ramble's version). To enable hotkeys, turn off "Dial From Home Screen" setting in Phone->Options. (You can press the phone hotkey before dialing, anyway). Hotkeys do not work on 71XX series, so you have to manually launch via icon. However, hotkeys works from PocketDay as an assigned key if you need hotkeys on the 71XX series.
.
QuickNote
Wireless Link: www.marky.com/files/bb/QuickNote.jad
Desktop Link: blackberryforums.com/showthread.php?t=25495
One hotkey access ("Q" key) to immediately jotting down notes that is automatically copied to the clipboard. Requires BlackBerryOS 3.6 or later. Free utility written by Mark Rejhon. To enable hotkeys, turn off "Dial From Home Screen" setting in Phone->Options (hotkey does not work on 71XX).
