    Your co-worker's phone has died or was forgotten at home, & they ask you if they can make a quick call on your phone. You hesitate to offer him your phone because of the sensitive information that lies within Facebook.

    Well, Risto Mobile Solutions has got you covered with bPRIVATE - Privacy App Blocker for BlackBerry. The premium version let's you password lock up to 6 applications (BBM, Inbox, Facebook, Address Book, Calendar, Memo & Media) so that prying eyes are left wondering what you've hidden, while the free version is limited to 1 application.

    My only concern with this application is that blocks are delayed 2-3 seconds, & you can actually see what is within those applications for that brief instant. Other than that, this application is a must-have for anyone who feels that their sensitive information should be guarded.

    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!!

    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!!

    BE SURE TO READ THE LAST PARAGRAPH FOR DETAILS ON THE CONTEST WITHIN THE CONTEST

    For Theme Thursday, we're going to look at Swag, from drkapprentice designs. I've been using several of his themes now for quite some time, and I have to say, my first impression of Swag was way off base.

    Initially I thought this looked like a pretty simple design to come from a theme builder who we have gotten use to throwing together some complex themes...DRK7S and Recon to name a few. But, I had to load it to find out for myself, and to say the least, I'm very impressed.

    Swag is very sharp with the graphics, with a simple but appealing look that's very clean. The landscape view has gotten rid of the stock graphics and been replaced with the theme's. The transitions from screen to screen are also impressive. Very fast and no lag as you sometimes see in other themes. Another thing I like about drkapprentice themes is that he uses the BB fonts that you have chosen to use, and he doesn't disappoint here. You still get your chosen fonts in the menu screens but also with a transparent background. All of this, coupled with the OS 6 icons makes this one slick theme that you really do have to get.

    Some of the main features of Swag are...
