Best BlackBerry apps

From voice control to podcasting, we judge some of the best of the BlackBerry apps ripe for the picking from the BlackBerry App World and beyond

Since the launch of BlackBerry App World a few short months ago, crackberriers have joined iPhone-toters and Android addicts in spending all their pocket change on apps.

Apps for the BlackBerry tend to be more expensive than iPhone or Android apps, so we want to make sure you get your money's worth -- hence our recommendations for the best BlackBerry apps money can buy, or better yet, the best freebies available.

We used a BlackBerry Curve 8520 for our testing. Annoyingly, not all apps are available for all phones, so you'll have to browse the shelves of the App World yourself to be sure that apps are available for you. We've linked to the App World Web site, which has prices in US dollars, but if you browse on your handset logged into your UK PayPal account, you'll see prices in Her Majesty's pounds sterling.

If you have a favourite app that didn't make it into the list, we want you to shout it from the rooftops of the comments section so we can check it out.
