BLACKBERRY APP WORLD
THE COMPETITION IS ON !!!!!!!
They’ve got some more growing to do to catch up with the iTunes App Store, but still: RIM has announced that after less than four months in existence, the BlackBerry App World now boasts 2,000 options—twice as many as when it launched. For the most part, that means BlackBerry users now waste time exactly like iPhone addicts, with apps for Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Google Maps, and the rest of the frequent-fliers. BlackBerry exclusives, like Poynt (which “points” you in the direction of cool things you’ve searched for nearby), are well worth a spin, though they usually have iPhone equivalents. And if you’re still feeling iPhone-covetous, there’s the bPhone app, which makes your CrackBerry look just like the Jobs model. All in all, iPhoners still have 53,732 more apps to choose from…for better or worse. Crazy Penguin Catapult? Currently a best seller.
