    How Did I Miss This?...Greatest Progam Ever...And It's FREE

    Advertisement



    I have had my BB for quite awhile. After an exhaustive search the first few days I had it and susequently on a weekly basis, I thought I had found every great program and all that I wanted or needed(especially the free ones-haha). Ahhh, but I was wrong. Sunday night while downloading some games and stuff to try from getjar.com based on N8's recos, I decided to download Pocket Express, mostly for the free sports function. I have seen and heard of the program before, and I'm not 100% sure why I passed it over before(I think I never really read a description and thought I knew what it was and already had something similar that I loved). But WOW, what a mistake. I tried it out Monday morning, and I have to say, it is quite possibly the best app for the Blackberry, free or not(which it is for any that don't know). If you don't already have it, you don't know what you're missing. Go download it right now!(Go. Now. Do it. I'll wait wap.getjar.com from your BB). You will not be disappointed. And if you do have it(which I suspect a lot of you do) leave your feedback: good, bad, or indifferent. I give my personal kudos and thanks to Handmark(who makes it) for a job VERY well done. Best freakin app ever!!!

    Oh yeah!! It is a FANTASTIC program!! I have been using it for almost 3 years (on different devices) & it never ceases to amaze me. I use the "Find A Business" all the time. I love how you can add the result to your contacts. Well worth the money.

    The news, weather & sports is free. The rest of the services are available for free for 2 weeks. After that you must purchase a subscription. It is $6.99 a month or $69.90 per year. If that is a little pricey for you, I would suggest keeping an eye out on all the Palm software sites & watch for specials. I have never paid full price. I usually get it at 50% off.

    other than handango.com, do you suggest any other website to keep checking for these deals. i would LOVE to have the full capability of pocket express but definitely can't afford to spend $70 on it!

    Even though they sell Palm software, Palmgear.com is a great place to get Pocket Express on sale. Sign up for "Receive Special Offers & Promotions" in the left hand column of their site. That is where I got it for 50% off.

    I can't find Pocket Express on the Palmgear web site. Even did a search. Do you have a link for it?

    You are right. It isn't there. I did purchase it there about 6 months ago. I think for the first few years, they sold it through other channels to get their name out there. Perhaps now it is only available exclusively through Handmark.

    blacroc, Welcome to PinStack.

    Can't help with pocket express, but I'm sure someone that can will be along. May not be right away as it is the weekend. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.
