Guide: Must have apps for the 9780 / 9700 (most are free)
 
1) QuickLaunch, this application is a MUST HAVE for any BlackBerry device!!! It allows you to run any application or task via one icon which you can place on your desktop and setup shortcuts for it, additionally, it comes with a weather application built in as well, a screen capture utility incase you wanted to show your screen to someone, a torch application that actually works, and a battery pull simulator to help you easily restart your device without actually removing the battery. It costs $9.99 but is worth every penny!

2) BBWeather, by far, the best weather application for the BB, this is not free though, but well worth every penny, it gives you a very nice graphical interface with a 7 day ahead weather forecast, and has skins support as well to change its looks. It costs %3.99 USD only. Link: BerryWeather - Weather in Style - VOTED BEST WEATHER APP 2010 - News & Weather BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Apps Store





3) DuoBerry (This allows you to download YouTube movies and not get any extra carrier charges)


From your BlackBerry, visit this link to start the installation, do not forget to customize the security restrictions and set everything to ALLOW

4) Dictionary (very neat dictionary application that can even pronounce the words for ya), to install this, Visit Dictionary.com from your BB




5) Google Maps = from your BB, go to Google, then search for Google Maps BlackBerry when the search comes up, enter the first link, there you should see a list of all the Google applications and you will find Google Maps there




6) Google Sync (A very neat application that will enable you to backup all your contacts to your Gmail e-mail account, so incase you lose or damage your BB, you have a backup. You can always login to your Gmail account and you will see all the contacts under the Contacts section.


Let us say you ever get your phone back and have no previous backup or contacts, just load Google Sync again, and login to your email on your BB via the application, then hit Sync, it will then download all your contacts back!)


From the same page where you downloaded Google Maps, download Google Sync




7) BerryUnit Converter (good application to convert various formats like length, height, etc, into other formats, example, kgs to pounds and so on)


From your BB, navigate to http://www.tomechangosubanana.com/be...tConverter.jad






8) i-Nigma Barcode Reader

3GVision's i-nigma is the industry's most comprehensive 1D/2D Mobile Barcode Solution.

It works on OS 5 and OS 6

Go to Install i-nigma Code Reader on your mobile. I-nigma will automatically identify your handset type, download and install i-nigma.

why would you need Google Maps when you already have BB Maps?

Couple of reasons.

Some carriers block BB Maps from working because they want you to purchase their pay navigation app.

Google maps has some features that BB maps does not.

... and Google Maps apparently has more detail, or even detail period, on some locations where BBMaps does not.

And a lot of people just prefer it over BBMaps, some maybe just because of visual appeal.

Jconverter is another good unit conversion app. It covers a lot more things than BerryUnit Converter.

if this is a must have thread then Poynt should be on top, that said from some post I have read it may not work in properly in some countries. Sure is great in Canada.
