    Have you ever had your phone in your pocket & accidentally pocket-dialed someone? Had your phone accidentally open an app & drain your battery?

    Well, the folks at Risto Mobile Solutions have come out with a solution to your issue called bLOC - Widgets Screen Lock for BlackBerry. This application not only provides a screen lock solution, but also gives you several different widgets to navigate through while screen is locked, including:
    • Weather
    • Clock
    • Calendar
    • Quote of the Day
    • Gold Prices
    • Currency Exchange

    The user interface seems very easy to understand, but it seems the application does not automatically load after a battery pull.

    When testing this application on my Bold 9780, I had to press the RETURN key in order to have the slider appear. A slight discomfort, but nothing that a typical user wouldn't get accustomed to.

    I was still able to receive call while the application was running & it didn't seem to affect the memory while running.

    Risto Mobile has hooked us up with 15 copies of this application to give away. Just leave a comment in the forums for a chance to win!!

    Blaq is a twitter client for BlackBerry phones that is available in both paid, "Blaq", and free, "BlaqLite", forms. In my opinion there is really no substantial difference between the two, therefore the version I will be testing is BlaqLite.

    Have you ever lost your car in a crowded parking lot? Have you ever been lost in an amusement park and can't remember how to get to your favorite ride? Have you ever needed turn-by-turn directions to any location? Take a closer look at QuickFind's technology:



    From the makers of QuickLaunch, NikkiSoft has come out with a brand new GPS friendly app called QuickFind. QuickFind uses radar-like technology that displays both your current location and your target location. QuickFind will not only show you on it's radar display where your current position is, but it will also show you your target location. The app allows you to see the direction you are going in, speed of travel, and upon close proximity and arrival at your destination, QuickFind will employ a Vibrate/LED combination to alert you that you've arrived.

    Cocky Culture, well known for their themes, have developed their first game for the BlackBerry 9800 and 95xx devices. The game requires you to help Dante escape through 9 levels of hell. The user guides Dante away from lava while progressing through various platforms. There are several obstacles to avoid as well as score enhancers including lives and power ups.

    This is a great game, especially for Cocky Culture’s first attempt at game development. .
