| | Re: New to Blackberry. Good apps?
This is really an individual thing. And it depends on what you are looking for, or what you need. Also, almost all apps are downloaded over the air (OTA). There may be exceptions, but from my perspective there are few desktop downloads. And at any rate, the power of the BlackBerry and the apps is in the mobile data, so you would be wise to have a BlackBerry data plan on your account. (Look up BIS and BES at blackberryfaq.com)
Once you have the BlackBerry data plan, install BlackBerry App World if it is not already preloaded for you. Browse away. Try different apps (at least the free ones) and see what appeals to you.
I'll put in a good word for Pandora. (Look it up.)
Also, if you travel, or even if you don't, Poynt can be very useful.
