BlackBerry Desktop Manager Updated. Features Added

RIM has updated BDM yet again with features added that were removed previously. Support has also been added for Windows 7 and the newest BlackBerry devices like the Storm 2 and Bold 9700. Another cool feature is the ability to add new fields to your address book. Backup/Restore has been improved as well.

I think its worth upgrading.

eBay App for BlackBerry Now Available

There's a new app in town. eBay for BlackBerry is available now in App World. You can search, bid, buy, watch items and more all from your device. The app gives you the option of adding items to you calendar so you don't miss the end of an auction, and will also send you alerts if you are outbid. You can even add your PayPal account so you can purchase items right from your device.

Sounds pretty slick. The app is still in the beta testing stages, so there are still a few bugs to be worked out.

Bold 9700: RIM's Best Blackberry Yet

When I first heard about the Bold 9700 and all the features included, I was impressed. Most previous Berrys were missing something; be it Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, Camera or Trackpad. This 9700 has everything and more. The most surprising feature is number one on Al Sacco's ( list. Check out his article: BlackBerry Bold 9700: Why It's RIM's Best BlackBerry Ever to find out his top 9 reasons.

MiniPaint Beta - Edit and Mess With Pics On Your BB

Here's a simple picture editing app for BlackBerry Devices. Its called MiniPaint. It allows you to add text or clipart to your pics and even resize them.

Apparently it has a few bugs to work out, but that is expected as it is still in the beta testing phase. It is free though, so take it or leave it.

It does work on the Storm in compatibility mode, but navigation is a bit of a hassle on all devices. This is the only app of its kind that I know of, but I expect there to be many competitors soon. It would be fun to have an app similar to the iPhone app that allows you to morph and mangle your pics.

Free Urbanspoon App For BlackBerry Now Available!

The extremely popular iPhone app, Urbanspoon, is now available for BlackBerry devices.

It looks great and works like it should. You can choose a location or use 'my location' which is detected automatically. There are 2 other categories to randomize or lock if you choose: Food type and Price. If you want to only look for low priced food in your city, click to lock the city and $. Then hit space to spin the middle tumbler. A restaurant will be chosen at random that fits those specifications.

From there you can select the restaurant for more information. By clicking on the phone number, you will automatically start calling the restaurant. If you click on the address, you will be taken to google maps or your default maps and shown the location on the map.

It will likely be showing up in App World soon, but for now you can grab it here:
