Default 3rd Party Curve Program Suggestions

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,
I just upgraded my blackberry from the 8700 to the 8300 and the one thing that i am realizing more and more is that i am missing out on all of the 3rd party software that i could be downloading onto my curve. So i was wondering if anyone could recommend some good programs that i should get for my 8300. and if anybody knows where i can get some more games , preferably free games, for my phone that would also be appreciated. thanks for any help you guys may be able to offer.

I don't know about games, but a couple of programs I am finding to be very helpful are Rexwireless' todoMatrix and Opera Mini. I also recommend Google Maps, JiveTalk, and Beyond411.

Apparently it was free during development. It went to v1 last week and at v2 this week. They also engaged Mobylo as a partner (commercial distribution?)

jive talk! I'm gonna buy it ...small foot print ...way better than aim+ if you ask me. I just wish it supported multiple alarm settings and skype! And emailing offline ppls and sms..

but jivetalk
1)jive talk $$ (30 day trial)
2)viirgo -rss reader( anyone suggest a better one)-free
3)beyond411 free
4)bbweather free (bit of dozy configuring)
5)google maps
6) texas holdem 2- free to pass the time
7) shopedge - for shopping on amazon
8)

I'd love more ..but I can't seem to find anything that will fit my needs atm.
