    I belive the GCalcSync is outdated, and should be replaced with Google's version, which should be in the top list. Viigo should also be included

    Thanks. Remember these don't reflect a manual selection by the PinStack Team but rather the download stats from our downloads area:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com/downloads.html

    If a link to Google's version is missing from the downloads are it won't have stats. However, we have most of Google's app featured in numbers threads throughout the site.

    Don't forget the windows live search. It's way better for map speed+detail than google maps (and I hate windows so this is very hard to admit), and for finding businesses and phone numbers it's incredibly more intuitive. I believe this can replace BBLocal and Google Maps. It's just that it's so intuitive and easy to use, and it's much much much faster to use.

    I appreciate all your lists and new info, it is all over the top. Unfortunately, the links for your lists of games are mostly outdated and don't work. Otherwise, keep up the superior work!

    Is GCalSync the same as the regular google sync?
    Let me rephrase.
    Does GCalSync do anything different (or better) than the regular google sync app that came with the Google Mobile Update?

    I can't get Skip Mobile either. The website seems to be down and the file on the Pinstack server is just a txt file instructing people to go to goskip.com.

    No. GCalSync was only supposed to sync the calendar, which very few people got it to work correctly.
