    Blackberry Users Hit the Slopes: Free Snow Reports From REI and Zumobi
    Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI), the national outdoor gear and apparel retailer, and Zumobi, the innovative mobile media company, today announced the availability of the REI Snow Report, a free application that lets iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Mobile users get instant information about conditions at ski resorts and mountains in the United States, Canada, Europe and elsewhere. Available now as a free download, the REI Snow Report also provides one-touch access to REI’s website, featuring winter sports products and helpful information on recreating outdoors.

    This application will put all of the news feeds from the Associated Press in the palm of your hand. The AP Mobile News app is now updated and available for the Storm! For the folks who don't have a Storm, go to from your BB browser for a compatible version.

    MyCaption Voice-to-Data Application Available to BlackBerry Storm Users
    MyCaption, a leading provider of voice-to-data services, announced it has released a version of its voice recognition software for the new BlackBerry Storm from Research In Motion. MyCaption allows business users the ability to "write-by-voice" their email, memos, tasks, contact notes and calendar entries and synchronize them with any Enterprise applications such as Outlook, Microsoft Exchange and even Google applications.

    SlingPlayer coming to BlackBerry phones
    Making good on a promise made at CES 2008, Sling Media has announced that a beta version of the company's SlingPlayer Mobile software will be available on select BlackBerry smartphones starting December 30. BlackBerry users who own the Bold, Curve 8900 & 8320, 8820, Pearl Flip 8220, and Pearl 8120 will be able to stream video to their smartphone using a Slingbox device.The download requires BlackBerry device software 4.5 or higher and will be free for a limited time. We'd imagine once the beta lifts, all users will be required to pay the one-time fee of $30.

    Viigo Update: Improvements in both memory, usage and performance
    Check out the new Emergency Services section under Local Interest, there you will find Global Breaking News Alerts, Earthquake & Storm Watch Monitoring, FEMA & Homeland Security bulletins & other Emergency Feeds.

    Alltel Debuts Trimble GPS Application
    Just in time for holiday play, Alltel has launched a new GPS application with Trimble Outdoors. Trimble Outdoors brings basic GPS services to select Alltel phones, though it appears to be meant more for hikers and mountain bikers rather than drivers. First, you must plan your trip online, but you then can send the routing information including maps and waypoints wirelessly to your phone.

    NEW: Location Aware Instafind for BlackBerry
    We have made the app even better by adding GPS. The instafind app is location aware now. No keying in any location information.THE BEST PART: Instafind GPS also works on blackberrys that don't support GPS. The location is retrieved in 3 secs as opposed to the native GPS that takes close to 3 minutes and drains the battery. Instafind Mobile Services is FREE and packs all the essentials in one application.

    BeejiveIM for BlackBerry beta 1.1.1
    The folks over at Beejive issued an updated beta of BeejiveIM of BlackBerry, v1.1.1. This fix addresses a bunch of bugs and includes better integration with the Messages Inbox. This release is available for all BlackBerry OS’s that we currently support. This is a minor release targeting the 4.6 OS. It features VGA images (for the Bold & 8900 Curve) and Message Inbox integration. There are no significant changes for OS’s below 4.6.
