    This is amazing 😀 usually I see cool apps but would never pay 5 dollars or whatever to actuallly buy it.

  2. Carlotta says:

    Another reason why I love my Blackberry

  3. Rims a joke says:

    Another reason why RIM is failing and Apple is better. The apps don’t compare to all the better FREE ones in the App store.

  4. Chuck says:

    Even though this didn’t affect me (or any people I know with Blackberries), it’s TERRIFIC!! 😀

  5. mike says:

    What if you do not have data plan? Can you still get the free apps. Just have the social networks.

  6. Mary says:

    I downloaded the free for free but a couple of the others I have checked still have a charge on them. The drive program actually said compliments of RIM so I knew it was right but the others (Bejeweled) is still costing.

    i went on to Blackberry world and clicked on “A Thank you gift from Blackberry”, it only listed “Drive Enterprise –” as the only app available- shouldn’t more be available???? I’ve had this app before and it actual;ly slowed my bb down significantly and drained the battery quite quickly, plus if my bb was on silent the app would still speak out the text or email!

    I was in the same boat as Mary above, but then I clicked on the press release and read this
    “The complete selection of premium apps will become available to download at BlackBerry App World over a period of four weeks beginning Wednesday, October 19th. The selections over this period will include the following (with more to come):”
    So I think they are slowly giving them away free – like a new one will show up tomorrow or something.
    We’ll just have to keep checking – good luck!

  9. loyal to bb says:

    I waited a very long time to get a blackberry and I am glad I did. I don’t like touch screens and I really don’t have any interest in getting the iphone. The iphone 5 will have to be pretty special to get me away from bb.

  10. foggyidea says:

    I don’t care about the apps, I use my Blackberry for email, phoning and messaging. If i wanted apps then I would’ve got an iphone. I just want the thing to work.

  11. stephanie says:

    The apps slow my Curve down a lot, and sometimes freeze it, so other than Bejeweled (when it becomes available) I think I’m going to pass on the rest. Plus I’m getting an iPhone in March anyways so no point. Apple apps are WAY better (I have the iPad).

  12. Sara says:

    Nobex is amazing! I can listen to radio from around the world on my phone. It drains the battery but amazing for use in the car!!

  13. natasha says:

    I am still new to the BB world and am very happy I noticed bejewled is still charging too but I still downloaded it since they did say it would be available today for free and hope it still is fee 🙂 I think it should be 🙂

  14. Anne says:

    You people should be ashamed of yourself. Even thou RIM had a minor blackout recently, I think we should still support the ONLY Canadian smart phone company that is competing with companies with far greater cash and reach like Apple, Google, Microsoft and others.

  15. LA22 says:

    Lol why exactly should we be ashamed of ourselves?

  16. Mary B says:

    Unless you are using your BB for business use then this really isn’t such a big deal. I love my BB and so I was shut down for a day big whoop!! RIM was responsible enough to take charge and assure everyone that they are and did to everything in their power to resolve the issue at hand. To boot they offered every BB user $100 of free apps. What other company would have offered this. Proud to be Canadian and proud to own a BLACKBERRY 🙂

  17. Bo Hica says:

    Does anyone know if the downloaded software is tied to your blackberry device or your blackberry id?
    I have a Bold 9700, but will likely buy a new blackberry next year. Can the software installed and already paid for on my Bold 9700 also be installed on my next new device? Very similar to iOS apps?
    Thank you in advance, y’all!

  18. Chris says:

    Anne no one should be ashamed of themselves, a company running services like this should be more ready for things like this, I think they should of offered more stuff.
