The 15 best BlackBerry apps

Be productive and entertained

We've put together the 15 best apps from RIM's app store BlackBerry App World. These apps will help you have fun and be more productive at the same time.

BlackBerry has finally joined the ranks of Apple and Google , after Research in Motion (RIM) finally threw open the doors to its app Store, BlackBerry App World this month.

The BlackBerry App World, which can be downloaded for free on to your BlackBerry, offers hundreds of applications for social networking, productivity, reference, entertainment, personal finance and more. We've rounded up what we think are the 15 best apps that will help you have fun and be productive at the same time.

Dexrex SMS backup

If you've ever accidentally deleted an important text message, don't worry - Dexrex can help you get it back. The app stores and archives all incoming and outgoing text messages sent through your BlackBerry and lets you access them simply by signing into a password-protected account on their website.

Cost: Free

Exgis Mileage Tracker

Designed for frequent business travelers, the Mileage Tracker lets users keep data on the distances they've traveled and export it to a company mileage spreadsheet.

Cost: $4.99 (£3.40)


While the BlackBerry Storm does many things well, one of its problems is that it's all too easy to accidentally mute your calls by pressing your face up too close to the click touchscreen. The StormLock eliminates this problem by temporarily locking up your call screen while you're making a phone call. The application automatically shuts off once calls are completed.

Cost: $2.99 (£2.05)

gFlashPro Flashcards

Anyone taking a professional exam can make use of these digital flashcards that let users make their own personalised quizzes with user-generated content.

Cost: $4.99 (£3.40)

Salesforce Mobile

This application is basically a way for salesmen to manage contacts. You can sort all of your sales contacts as accounts, opportunities and leads. The app also helps users keep track of their latest sales account activities and to log sales into a database.

Cost: Free to download, although you have to be a subscriber to Salesforce.com to get any use out of it.
