Default getting my curve on wed, what should i put on it?

Please Login to Remove!

So it will probably be knocking on my front door by wed. Is their any apps you guys approve of? I figured I could have some stuff on my desktop ready to go before it gets here.

Thanks

Yea, lots. Look over in the Aftermarket Software section for MANY threads of "hot apps" "must have" etc.

The first thing I would put on it would be a big kiss. It really is a fantastic device.

Now being serious, Blackberry Weather, Jive Talk (multi-client IM), Viigo (News Reader), and Mapquest Navigator or Telenav would be my picks. Of course it all a matter of preference, but look in the Third Party Apps section for some great resources.

Happy Berrying!

There are two free stopwatch apps here:
3rd Party Application List - BlackBerryFAQ.com

Viigo is a great app for RSS, etc.

Get a 2gb Media card for a few dollars more.

Read the Memory Optimization thread in General section here, at the top of the section in the Sticky Notes.
